Desert Canyon, formerly known as Fountain Hills Golf Club, opened in 1970 and remains a hidden treasure. Each hole of the par 71 championship course plays to a backdrop of a pristine sky and views of some of Arizona's most beautiful scenic mountains. Desert Canyon is one of Arizona's top championship golf facilities. Hilly and tight, the course views the world's tallest fountain, visible from almost every hole. The club's number 7 hole was voted one of Arizona's best 18, with a green situated 153 feet below the tee box.
