This course is a difficult as we want to play. Lower rating is based on length but the hazards are there for you to visit on almost any hole. Beautiful condition

We recently played the Sidewinder Golf Course at Gold Canyon. It was a beautiful course. Staff was super friendly. It was both a scenic and challenging course to play. It was definately worth the drive from our condo in Scottsdale.

Fantastic views. Club house food nearly not edible. Frequented the main dining room years ago before they "remodeled" There is nothing that absorbs sound all hard surfaces in the dining room and conversations are impossible. Can't complain about the poor food to each other!!

Sidewinder is probably and less dramatic of the two golf courses at Gold Canyon yet is still challenging and scenic. Course was in excellent condition and staffed well. Great snack bar outside and the bar, dining room, and patio were inviting. GPS in my cart was flukey . The would have switched out carts but because we were fighting daylight I declined.

The Sidewinder course is definitely the stepson to the more spectacular Dinosaur Mountain course, but it shouldn't be discounted. It may not have the spectacular views and the crazy elevation changes, but it is a solid, fun, challenging round of golf.

My friends and I played both courses in one day and on the Sidewinder course we got hit with a crazy dust storm and high winds while on the back nine, so our scores took a hit, but not our enjoyment level. This course is just a good as many of the highly-touted courses in the Phoenix metro area.

It is definitely worth making the drive out there to play 36 holes and take in both courses. The Sidewinder should not be ignored.
