Emerald Canyon Golf Course can be extremely difficult due to the winds that can affect your shots. If you are looking for a good game of golf and like being out in the desert area, this is a great course to visit. The course has the natural desert of Arizona coming right up to the fairways and greens. The course is located in a beautiful setting with rocky cliffs, wild shrubs, cacti, and the Colorado River. The trees lining the narrow fairways will also have an influence on your game. The Colorado River comes into play on a few holes. Carved out of the mountains and canyons overlooking the Colorado River, Emerald Canyon is a delight to the eye as well as a great golf challenge.

#16 and #17 offer great views from elevated tees. On 17th you will have to clear a 150 yard canyon about 280 yards out so plan on an accurate drive staying as far left as possible, or simply take two layup shots to the canyon edge. Emerald Canyon Golf Course is one of those courses you will likely loose a ball or two, so have fun and enjoy the view.
