Featured Golf Course Review:
Stone Canyon Golf Club, The -- perfect
Review by: Colt Ferguson I was invited to golf there when it first opened. From the moment that I arrived I was in a state of shock because of the beauty that was surrounding me. The club house and the service of the employees were awesome! The golf course itself was immaculate. I couldnt believe that I was really golfing there. I have never played a course in that good of shape. I have played dessert mountain (all five courses), Pinnical Peak CC, Superstition Mountain, and other well known golf courses and they all failed in comparison to stone canyon. It was the time of my life!

Rio Salado Golf Course -- Decent course, decent price
Review by: Craig This 9-hole course is a decent value, because the greens fee include a cart, and it good for 18 holes. If the fee was for 9 holes, no cart, it wouldn't be worth it. Rio Salado is an ok course, with wide, forgiving fairways. Just keep it on the fairway - the course is built around a wash (gully) and even if you can find your ball and play it from there, you just added 2-3 strokes to your score for that hole (unless you are a lot better than most of the golfers here, including me :) ). The biggest knock to this course are the large expanses of dead fairway grass. The greens are usually in decent shape though. The most challenging hole is the par-3 seventh. The tee and green are separated by a section, approximately 80 yards wide, of steep wash, and the base and sides of the wash are covered in stones. Large stones. If you hit a ball in here, just write it off. It's gone. That's not the only hazard, either. There are trees on each side of the wash - just to left-front of the green, hanging over the green, and in front of the teebox, a little to the side. And a bunker in front of the green. The clubhouse is ok. It is clean, with a small proshop and a snack bar that has irregular hours (it closes when the person running it decides business is too slow.) There is a large screen TV in the snack bar area, so you can sit down after a round and watch the pros show you how it is supposed to be done. The driving range is ok, though the tee area is too narrow for my taste; there is also a putting green and a chipping green, with a bunker to practice from, too. Overall, an excellent choice for beginners, with a little more length than many 9-hole courses.
