Where2Golf says: 

Emerald Canyon Golf Course: Also known as La Paz County's "Jewel in the Desert", Emerald Canyon is certainly one of Arizona's most scenic and, for a few holes, tightest layouts. Many of the opening and closing holes on each nine are laid out on flattish terrain, close to the mighty Colorado River, although not directly alongside. Here you can enjoy generally good-width fairways and a clear view of any trouble ahead. The scenic splendour and challenges of the course reach their climax in the middle section of each nine. As you pass under Hwy 95, to play the 4th, 5th and 6th holes, and then again for the 15th, 16th and 17th, you enter a dramatically undulating area of small, tightly-folding hills, a wonderfully natural area of pristine desert terrain. Here you will feel at one with the rugged, undulating desert, as will your golf ball if you can't deliver the accurate drives that several of the holes demand. The sides of the canyons may provide welcome assistance as you thread your way through this wonderfully scenic and craggy environment. Although by no means completely absent, bunkering and water hazards are sparingly used, giving some good birdie opportunities especially for straight hitters. With the excellently maintained emerald green fairways contrasting with the surrounding reddy-brown rocks, cliffs and canyons, this wonderful golf course on the western edge of Arizona is guaranteed to leave a lasting and usually very positive impression. If you are in the area, don't miss it !

Did you know?

Just 25 miles north of Emerald Canyon lies the lakeside resort of Lake Havasu City. The lake was created following the construction of the Parker Dam, on the Colorado River. Renowned as a lively vacation resort, Lake Havasu City also boasts one of the oldest structures in the west, the original London Bridge, imported stone by stone from England. The bridge was originally constructed in London in 1831. By the 1960's it was no longer structurally sound and was deemed unable to support the level of traffic crossing it. The City of London sold it to Robert McCulloch, the founder of Lake Havasu and chairman of McCulloch Oil Corporation. The bridge's facing stones were carefully disassembled, numbered and eventually shipped to the bridge's present location, where re-assembly began in 1968. The original facing stones were fixed to a new concrete structure, with completion and opening in late 1971.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
