I have played over 160 courses in Arizona and this course is one of the top 2. Almost every hole is unique, challenging and picture worthy. Definitely target golf with a lot of risk/reward shots. The price is a little high during the winter so if you are on a budget you would want to play during the summer. A little bit of a drive from Phoenix/Glendale area but definitely worth it at least once per year. Ignore the Golf Magazine's recommendation of the top courses you can play. They always pick the same Scottsdale courses which are nice but don't have the character this one has. This course is more affordable than the Scottsdale courses and much more memorable.

Dinosaur Mountain is one of the best courses I have ever played - bar none. The layout, scenery, desert wildlife (I've seen javalina, deer, a gila monster, roadrunners, coyotes, quail, etc.) all make for one enjoyable round of golf. It can be a challenging layout - if you play from the 'wrong' tees. I've played this course about 5 times over the years and I'm never disappointed. I don't hesitate to recommend it as one of the best golf courses in the area.

Beautiful views, great holes playing up and down the mountain, course conditions are always superb. i have played many of the top, high dollar courses in the state of AZ and would rate Dinosaur as my #1 favorite.

Best course of my life, the highlight of 3 days, 5 rounds of golf. We flew from Ottawa Canada to play golf, and this was the absolute highlight.

The Gold Canyon Golf Resort is gorgeous resort and golf venue. The course is difficult but playable for most golfers. The Southwest Pass makes the price quite affordable during the summer season. In the winter, the rates are better suited for tourists who have spending on their mind.
