Golf in The Valley of the Sun

  • SRC Putting Green

The Phoenix - Scottsdale area is named "The Valley of the Sun" as it enjoys more than 325 days of sunshine a year. The sunny climate and extraordinary Sonoran Desert landscape have made the area an especially renowned destination for golf.

CopperWynd Resort & Club overlooks SunRidge Canyon Golf Club, where our guests and club members enjoy preferred status. Let us book a tee time at special rates for you at the course ranked among the "Top 20 Best Courses You Can Play in Arizona" by Golf.com, and "Top 10 Most Underrated Courses in Arizona" by Links magazine. 

SunRidge Canyon Golf Club

This Keith Foster-designed golf course unfolds around some of the most picturesque Sonoran desert scenery found in the Valley of the Sun. The golf course gradually descends on the way out before doubling back to climb up the slope on the way in. This subtle elevation change lies at the heart of the dramatic golf experience at SunRidge Canyon, a course seemingly carved out of the relentless pressure of wind and water.  It is unlike any other desert golf experience in Scottsdale. It is also home to the Wicked 6, a devilish half-dozen holes that tend to force golfers to tap out. Made up of holes 13-16, the Wicked 6 plays uphill and generally into the prevailing breeze. Couple this with the fact that the holes would play moderate to long even if they were on level ground, and it’s easy to see why the Wicked 6 earned its menacing moniker.
