Arizona Golf Vacations

Desert Canyon Golf Club

Desert Canyon Golf Club is a championship desert design that is located in Fountain Hills, AZ just 20 minutes east of the city of Scottsdale. Fountain Hills is known for its open untouched desert and surrounding mountain ranges. Desert Canyon features elevated tees with a mix of elevation changes. The fairways at Desert Canyon do play open at times; however, tighten up at times as well making accuracy a necessity. Beware of blind tee shots at times. Some of the most amazing backdrop scenery may be viewed from any angle of the golf course. Deep canyons and tall mountains surround this Arizona golf course.

Scenic Fact: Be on the lookout for Fountain Hills’ signature 550-foot fountain (the tallest in the world). Views of this may be seen from most angles on the course.
