This course is short but challenging with six par threes built into Dinosaur Mountain. The mountainous terrain, narrow fairways, undulating greens and desert arroyos demand accurate shots to score well. The clubhouse restaurant and bar is a must stop after the round to review your...More

This course probably offers the most fun of any course in the area - The 6 par 3's using the elevation of the mountains really add some unbelievable views and gorgeous places to hit some golf shots. The course is unique and offers lots of...More
