Diamond in the Desert: SunRidge Canyon

Home of the Infamous 'Wicked Six" SunRidge Canyon provides a stunning and unique golf experience for low handicappers and novice golfers alike.

Take the Challenge at SunRidge Canyon

THE SUN IS SHINING brighter than ever on SunRidge Canyon Golf Club these days. With the recent completion of numerous course enhancements, the SunRidge Canyon experience just keeps getting better.

Golfers who have played the Keith Foster design may wonder how this desert gem could possibly be improved, as the layout was already as amazing as the scenic elevation changes and dramatic desert vistas surrounding it.

Major course enhancements began three off-seasons ago and included resurfacing the greens with slick new Champion Ultra-Dwarf Bermuda greens. This year’s improvements, completed in 2017, included the removal of bunkers on seven of the 18 holes for better playability and pace of play, without reducing the challenge for the lower handicapper.

Already recognized as one of the Top 20 “Best Courses You Can Play” in Arizona by GOLF Magazine prior to the enhancements, SunRidge Canyon continues to be a must- play for those visiting the Scottsdale area.

From the famous (or infamous) stretch of finishing holes known as The Wicked 6, to the post-round fun and entertainment found in the club’s bar and grill of the same name, the SunRidge Canyon experience goes beyond the birdies, bogeys and pars that happen on the golf course.

Wicked Six Bar & Grill has become the place for visiting golfers and local residents to relax, unwind and enjoy delicious food and beverage offerings. This modern American tap house features gourmet burgers, sandwiches, wraps, wood-fired artisan pizzas and chef specialties that include a new signature dish: Rattlesnake Pasta. Friday nights are one of the highlights of the week with a bagpipe performance at sundown. Whether enjoying the tunes from a local musician, grabbing a quick bite before your round or sipping libations while watching the sunset, the Wicked Six Bar & Grill provides the perfect dining destination for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Improving your golf game is the goal at SunRidge, which offers top instruction from its stable of PGA Professionals as well as club fitting at Hot Stix Golf Performance Center. Located at the practice facility at SunRidge Canyon, Hot Stix offers brand-neutral, tour-quality fittings, equipment and builds designed to improve performance in all areas. No visit to SunRidge Canyon is complete without a Hot Stix club-fitting experience.

Don’t let the sun set on your Scottsdale golf vacation without a visit to SunRidge Canyon Golf Club.
