Desert Canyon Golf Club boasts some spectacular views thanks to its dramatic mountain setting. The layout features narrow fairways that dogleg around high desert barrancas and arroyos and sculpted tees with stunning mountain backdrops. The fairways are also tightly lined with palms and native trees, demanding even further accuracy. The tough fairways are balanced by oversized greens that are mostly flat. The greens tend to slope away from the mountains, which is a useful bit of knowledge during the round. Though the first holes features water, it doesn't come into play that often throughout the golf course. One of Desert Canyon Golf Club's most memorable holes, both for its scenery and difficulty, is the par-3 16th, which plays from an elevated tee that makes it difficult to judge your distance.
