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.

SunRidge Canyon

Overall the course was in good condition. Some of the greens particularly on the front nine were rough and therefore inconsistent. The greens speed was good.

Sun Ridge always fun

Good round today on a challenging track. Post over seeding so cart path only but still a decent pace. Somewhat pricey but everything in town is now!
One of the better courses in the Phoenix area.

Great course but, wait for two months!!!

I truly love this course, but they just opened after two months of overseed work! I thought that being closed for TWO MONTHS of overseed work that the course would be in at least good playing condition! Sadly I was wrong!

The tee boxes were soggy and turf was only cut to a 2 in length. Burmuda rough was so deep you could not see the tops of your shoes. Fairways were so soggy that balls would plug. The grass on fairways were spotty(that was expected) so played lift, clean and place.

If this course would have charged $75 for the round, I could have said … ok, I get it, but my round was over $160!!!

I want to repeat! I really love this course! I just won’t play it for another two months and never just when they just re open!

JohnBoy

Great golfing experience!! However, the starter was a little over the top!! He needs to not be so negative when people are teeing off on one of the most difficult courses in the valley!! His disparaging remarks about the group ahead of us was definitely unnecessary!! If he can’t be more positive he needs to work in a place where he is not interacting with customers!!

Really good course

A little longer and harder than I’m used to but very enjoyable. Lots of cross fairway ditches/washes. You need to really think your way around. Played in 3:45 on a Sunday. Those last few holes are really something - the wicked six - all uphill. Fun outing.

Warned to play fast but so slow

Carts have black tops. Bad design for Arizona. White would be cooler. Greens super fast, like glass. Way slow and wasn’t pushed by staff. Other than this, great course.

Came back to AZ after 6 years. I made it a point to make sure Sunridge Canyon was on our list. And once again was not disappointed. Great layout, awesome conditions and good bar staff. . I will have it on my play list again. My all time favorite course.

Scenic course but our day was VERY windy

Played SRC day after being clobbered by wind at Wickenburg Ranch and this day was no better. Nothing the course can do about weather but still was not a very enjoyable round.

Very scenic golf course. Round was slowed by a group of 5 ahead of us. Greens were undulated but deceivingly straight. Cours layout is very challenging. Excellent restaurant.
