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.

Challenging....but fun!

Sunridge Canyon never disappoints. You know what you're up against when you get there, and it delivers. This is not an easy course!. World class views of the surrounding canyon mountains, beautifully landscaped, great practice driving range area. Course was in very good shape for early July.
Keep your drives straight and you'll score well, if not, it can be a tough round.. Greens are fast, and there are some hidden undulations, but again, this isn't a beginner's course. This is a course you need to play to get a feel for it, then play it again to score well...Definitely put this course on your must play list when visiting Scottsdale or Fountain Hills!!

Good

I play here a couple times a year. The greens are always really quick, and it was no different today. Fast, but fair. They rolled pretty well. Fairways a little beat up due to summer heat. It’s a good layout, but tough! One of the tougher courses in the Phoenix area in my opinion

Looks like they are saving money by not moving green cups. They looked like there were 3 permanent ones they alternated.

Disappointing Conditions

I’ve played this course 30 times and for the time of year, maybe the worst shape I’ve seen it in at least going back a decade. Greens are usually pristine but now very splotchy, Playable still but not up to the usual standard. The rough around the greens is fine but the Bermuda that encompasses most of course is dead. Not dormant, dead. Fairways also look terrible. Bermuda is hardy so could come back but I’m afraid they may have lost it. For peak season and peak rates, the conditions are unacceptable. The best layout in the valley but this course needs serious work.

Slow pace-bumpy sandy-super fast greens

NOt worth the green fees. Pace play was 5 hours. To the point my daughter started reading a book at the par 3s due to having 5 groups waiting.
This course is off our list.
