Very pretty desert course. First 5-6 holes are very pretty - most of the rest have houses near by. Pretty forgiving even if you miss the fairway or approach shots. Beautiful day in the low 70’s. Reasonable price for Phoenix in March.

No one can ever say that the Sidewinder course at Gold Canyon Golf Resort and Spa isn't a fun, well kept, beautiful course to play. It isn't as spectacular as the Dinosaur course but still one of the best around. However, when leaving the club...More

I'd hoped for more views on the course. I've played courses in the Valley where the course layout takes advantage of the mountains surrounding the course. Unfortunately, this course just runs through the valleys. That being said, it's a solid layout. There's really nothing that...More

Sidewinder is a wonderful golf course to play with excellent scenery and great conditions (tee boxes, fairways, greens in perfect shape). Friendly staff will take care of all your needs. You can't go wrong playing this baby.

Lots of gullies and washes in this very well maintained, professional golf course. Our group has played here every Fri for over 10 years. Worth a try!

Nice course, always in great shape, not too tough. (I only play in the summertime as it is expensive otherwise) Flat course, it's brother course, Dinosaur, is a mountain-type, much more picturesque.

This is a beautiful track that will test your skills in a typical desert setting. Five tees are available for men with slope ratings ranging from 111 to a difficult 133. We played this course right after playing Dinosaur Mountain at the same resort. It...More

Group of 12 friends played golf on the Sidewinder course which was in fabulous condition. The fairways are wide yet many of the holes have their challenges. You can buy a special 1/2 price pass for the year which makes the price very fair compared...More

Very nice desert course, good layout decent conditions. However the service and amenities leave something to be desired, no water on course saw the cart 1X for 18 holes. Carts are in rough shape at least the one we drove poor steering etc and dirty.More
