The course at Copper Canyon Golf Club is deceptively exclusive in that although the club has prestige and a luxurious atmosphere, there are some reasonably priced tee times. The layout features an interesting mix of holes that offer panoramic views of the White Tank Mountains to the south. The large, undulating greens that are framed by generous fairways are the trademark of the course. Water hazards come into play on a few holes and there are also sand bunkers situated throughout. This golf course offers four sets of teeboxes. Copper Canyon Golf Club has extensive practice facilities for golfers to use as well, including a full length driving range with several target greens, a large practice putting green, and a short game area with a bunker.

been a couple of years since playing Copper Canyon course was in excellent shape. Didn't remember that there were so many driver length fairway bunkers. Most of these bunkers had 8-10 foot high lips that left only a sand wedge to get out. 360-380 yard par fours uphill directly into a constant 15-20+ mile hour wind were almost impossible to reach. Reminded me of many Golf courses in Hawaii including the Bermuda greens. overly tough for no real reason.

First time playing this course. It's a long way from anything, but a great layout and beautifully manicured. They are doing some reconfiguring on the back side and could use some better signage redirecting the cart path route. Also a beverage cart for on-course snacks and drinks would improve the experience.

Have played here several times before but this was best experience at this course by far. Course is in excellent shape from tee to green with the greens rolling above average speed. Layout is great but the best thing this time was the pace of play. Actually finished around 4 hours which is a great improvement over the usual 5 hour round I have experienced in the past. Course is in the process of being expanded to 27 holes and was advised this should happen by late fall.

Great staff, very friendly. Overall turf conditions decent, but greens were sketchy. They need to remove a large tree that totally covers the 12th hole back tee box. It's a par 5 with water on the right, and traps on the left off the tee box. Even though the tee box is elevated a large tree sits right in the middle of the launch zone, about 50 yards out. This mandates a ridiculous rope hook or a big slice, or down sizing to a 3 wood. This adds no character to the course and is totally out of place. It needs removed ASAP.

Great course greens are some of the best in the valley smooth and true also like the fast greens. The only negative was the shortness of the rough which was basically no grass but hard pan which made it dificult to use the sand / pitching wedge for short shots around the greens and mid irons off the fairway. Overall the course is perfect sand traps had just the right amount of sand and maintained well by the course personel fairways smooth tee boxes well positioned and of course the greens are fantastic.

If you do not mind going on a road trip, then you will enjoy this course. The course is situated in a retirement community known as Sun City Festival. It is 12 miles west of anywhere. That means it is the only gig in town and is heavily utilized by the locals. It is a Troon course so that already tells you it is an above average course. Though the course was in good condition, it was a rather straight forward affair with relatively few twists or challenges. The greens were usually the trickiest part--most were undulated and rolling fast. The fairway grasses were in top form and the greens were in prime winter shape. I never had to play the green-side bunkers, but my playing partners reported they were not in very good shape. That may only mean they did not like playing out of bunkers. The course is nice enough, but probably not nice enough for me to make the 40 mile trip to play it again. If you are on the west side of the Valley, it may make more sense to check it out.

I play this course 2-3 times a year and this time of the year it was perfect. Still cart path only but the condition of the fairways and greens were perfect for after over-seeding. A must play anytime.

This course is a bit of a hike - a good 45+ minutes from Phoenix, and well over an hour from Mesa where we were staying. But well worth the drive. Gorgeous layout with lots of variety, lots of water, and in terrific shape. Greens were tough but ran true. Staff were very friendly. A very enjoyable round.
