Style Desert
Par 71
Length 6823 yards
Slope 138
Rating 72.0
SunRidge Canyon Golf Club provides adventure amid natural terrain over 6,823 yards of par-71 golf. The golf course was laid out by the golf course architect Keith Foster, who hid the golf course in the ridges and canyons of the foothills of the McDowell Mountains, one of the last untouched bastions of the Southwestern United States. The SunRidge Canyon Golf Club's signature hole is the 17th, and it is unique, giving golfers the option of shooting a 209-yard, par 3 over a box canyon today and then going for a 152-yard par 3 from an elevated tee tomorrow. Foster discovered the elevated-tee opportunity during a tour of the golf course while it was being constructed and added the Canyon set of tees right then. The vistas he knew golfers would get were enough to convince Foster to set up the second set of tees. After a round of golf at the SunRidge Canyon Golf Club, head back to the Ridge Room, which attracts visitors and locals for the great view and Southwestern cuisine.

Beautiful Day of Golf

From the friendly staff to the bathroom, water and halfway house amenities, this was a very good experience. The golf course is beautiful and challenging without being tricky. I would like to play again soon!

Course needs work and price reduction...

The course has always been one of our favorites but this time it was just awful. The greens need to be rolled. They were lumpy from the other cup placements and also they had been painted. Made for an awful putting experience.

In addition, the areas around the sand traps were chopped up and there were gaps bewteeen the sod which they let die off.

Also - the famed 17th tee box closed which has you drive over the canyon to the green. It’s always closed. Makes no sense.

For the money they charge approx $115 - this was not acceptable. Other local course are in better condition and charge a bit less. And you couldn’t even tee of from the best spots on some holes!

Very disappointing. The owner has told us how much he is putting into course improvements but we have yet to see it.

Won’t be back anytime soon!

Spectacular Desert layout

WOW Another Keith Foster gem! He used the desert in a magnificent layout! Greens are fair but you better figure out uphill and downhill! The new Scottish bunkers are plenty tough! It’s a must play inScottsdale.

Nice Layout

nice layout and course was in good shape. Houses line many fairways which takes away from the "out in the desert" feel. Greens were FAST and rolled true. I'd go back. A little pricey though.

Excellent layout great views

Played course for the first time. GPS on carts made it easy, especially with an occasional blind shot and many elevation changes. Course growing in nicely from overseeding. Greens in nice shape. Worth the drive and money. There seemed to be lots of locals here so it must be one of the nice courses to play while in Scottsdale. The starter was cordial professional and made us all feel welcomed. Would play again.

Fun course with challenging par 3’s

This is a great course. Pace of play was a little slow due to cart path only but overall was a fun round. Some of the black tee boxes were not mowed but the rest of the course was in great shape.

Tough course, great views, elevation changes

Course was in great shape greens at about 10, but quick if you are above the hole. Tough course, play up 1 tee box from normal if its your first time here. I would definitely play it again.

Mountain/desert golf day

Absolutely wonderful. The course is perfectly manicured, the greens are fast and true, the bunkers are clearly maintained, and the staff was far better than you would hope for!!!

Top Experience

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. A real gem!!

Numerous interesting and enjoyable holes along with some great views, The layout can be challenging on some holes but I loved every bit of it. The GPS on the carts is a nice bonus and a must for first timers. FYI, this would be a difficult course to walk with some distance between holes and large elevation changes. Beware the deep pot bunkers.

The course was in great shape and had just opened after over-seed. Greens are a little bit slow but rolling true. They did suffer some damage due to the recent record flash floods but it only affected areas along the cart paths.

Staff were top shelf, from the checkin at the pro shop to the amazingly friendly "Larry" our starter.

The made to order sandwiches at the halfway house were unbelievable. Huge, stacked and delicious!

I played the golds and scored well so I'm sure it influenced my review a little bit but this was probably the best course I've played in the Phoenix area with about 2 dozen under my belt so far. I will return.

Sun Baked Ridge!

Troon has a nice diamond in the hills here! Greens around 9-11 stimp! Fairways nice and lush; still some thin/hard pan areas in/around the approaches, but not penal. All the bunkers are ground under repair so that was a plus today! The bunkers are getting the Scottish links make-over so when the course re-opens up in 2-3 months, the bunkers will have those famous revetments to deal with! Very nice layout! Definitely a do-over! And over, and over, and over again!

W6 sure lives up to its reputation

Indeed the back nine was much more challenging than the front, however from the right tees for us and listening to the tips like take more club, even took 4 more instead of 2 since it was not only uphill but into a significant breeze.

very enjoyable layout with enough challenges

Ausome will be back love the ice machines

Played here on 6-20-18 and what a wonderful experience from the time the cart guys greeted us to the pro shop where the pro got us off before a 4 some. The course was in very good summer shape with an excellent quick round and the nicest thing is they have ice ❄machines on the golf course how ausome comes in handy. Afterwards a quick stop in the bar with excellent and delicious quesadas and great service. Truly enjoyed the wicked 6 holes will be back for sure.

First time playing this course

Great course

Challenging

More than enough information thru the GPS system with the cart for first time visitors

The course seemed in great shape

There were holes that were having minor maintenance done to various traps, tee boxes etc but they were marked out and the staff did mention it at the pro shop in any event they didn’t effect our play at all

(No I don’t work there)

But we hope to be back next time we are in fountain hills
