Desert Canyon Golf Resort
A crazy course in a spectacular desert setting
Sometimes, we should all be glad somebody didn’t do the expect thing. A desert course high above the Columbia River 3 hours from Seattle (and just about everywhere else)? A design that’s super fun, very hard and a bit ridiculous at times? Case point: A 668 yard par 5 with a 180 foot drop. Sometimes we should be glad somebody didn’t try to build a proper course with no surprises, and instead built a course that’ll give you stories to tell.
[T]he course lies on high ground above the Columbia River, back dropped by the Cascade Mountains to the West, with fairways routed across genuine desert terrain. [T]he 690-yard 15th is one of the most outrageous par fives you’ll come across anywhere. The fairway runs downhill, along the edge of a deep canyon, offering fabulous views of the river below, but approach shots can’t afford to miss the green left or long.Top 100 Golf Courses
