The nine-hole, executive course at the Golf Canyon RV & Golf Resort is an ideal location for golfers wanting to play a short round with a fair amount of challenges and nice scenery. With a rather tucked away location on the far east edge of Phoenix, the golf course offers plenty of refreshing seclusion and scenic backdrops of the Superstition Mountains. Lakes are situated throughout, coming into play occasionally. With a short wait for tee times and a fast-paced game, this course is perfect for kids, beginners, and golfers who are just busy. Gold Canyon RV & Golf Resort also has a putting green for golfers to use.

We booked with golf now and clicked on to play 18, got there, found out it was a 9 hole course. Said we paid for 18 holes and he said this is a 9 joke course, you will have to take that up with golf now.. Very discouraging. My husband thought about applying for a job as a lawn mower or greens keeper..Grass on the tee boxes was 3 inches deep, fairways were brown. All greens were elevated, not conducive to old people. Not any flat surfaces to walk.Horendous !

poor maintenance and staff

arrived to play at 10 am The course was fairly quiet
It is a residential course rapping around a park model complex The course was not groomed in any way with debris from surrounding trees and birds all over the place Walking the course you see that are long grass and fairways that have not been groomed in a long time Would not recommend this course Staff was not very friendly and if you are not a resident you have to wait for them to tee off when they get to the course not very professional

Walk Only

This is walk only course unless you have your own cart. We walk the course in less than 2 hours.
No one was on the course ahead of us. It’s pretty rough for an old guy like me.
Greens are all elevated. I don’t think I will play it again because of my age. I’m 85.

Reviews are accurate

The greens are as terrible as people say they are. It has some nice holes and it's too bad the greens are so rough. It could be a beautiful place to play.

1st Time

This was my first time to play this course. It's a small course i only used 3 clubs 9, PW and Putter. The holes were challenging because they were all short. Great chance to work on that part of your game.

Get your money back

Ridiculous. Greens are in horrible condition and apparently they don't care. There is no putting on these greens, just hitting the ball. When you have to move the ball so it's not sitting in a blemish it gets frustrating. I cant believe this course is allowed on any golf booking site. It's sad they have allowed this course to deteriorate to its present condition. Years back it was an enjoyable par 3 course. Dont waste your money!!
