The Desert/Canyon Course at the Phoenician combines two of three nines at the resort. The three nines each utilize the Sonoran Desert landscape in a unique way, showcasing a different aspect of the terrain on each golf course. The lush tropical plant life of the Desert/Canyon course pleasantly contrasts with the beautiful surrounding desert.

The Desert/Canyon Course at the Phoenician combines two of three nines at the resort. The three nines each utilize the Sonoran Desert landscape in a unique way, showcasing a different aspect of the terrain on each golf course. The lush tropical plant life of the Desert/Canyon course pleasantly contrasts with the beautiful surrounding desert. The Desert nine is the Phoenician's most sought-after golf course for its challenging layout. The dramatic elevation changes will prove to be a formidable test for even skilled golfers. The Canyon nine, which is perched on the southern slope of Camelback Mountain, features the same undulating terrain but golfers are also provided with incomparable views of the Valley of the Sun.

    This was a great resort style course. Very interesting, many unique holes on each nine. Each nine also seems to have it's own personality. Fairways in perfect condition. Best course I've played in awhile.
