SunRidge Canyon Golf Club: A beautiful vista awaits at SunRidge Canyon's first tee. Here you can soak in a spectacular view over the Sonoran desert plateau, with impressive mountain ranges rising up in the distance.

As the opening hole carries you downhill and away from the clubhouse, the quality of maintenance and excellence of the golfing challenge become apparent. Iconic saguaro cacti, beige residences and slivers of green fairway also catch the eye. This always scenic, out-and-back design, winds its way gently downhill for nine holes, before ascending to the clubhouse through SunRidge Canyon on the back-nine.

Water is rarely a threat, although "wash areas" (surface water run-off wastelands) cut across several fairways. Ever-present are the excellently maintained greens and fairways, the latter giving you just enough space to work with off the tee, but don't be too wayward. Substantive bunkering around the greens is an integral ingredient of this wonderfully challenging golf course, so too its many elevation changes and dramatic desert and mountain views.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
