Stone Canyon - Oro Valley, AZ

Built in 2000, Stone Canyon is a Phil Mickelson owned and Jay Morrish designed creation.  With views of the Santa Catalina Mountains on every hole, the golf course is as picturesque as you will find in Arizona.  There are plenty of cliff side tee shots and dramatic views to go with them.  From the tee, you will find plenty of room to find the fairway but severely off-line shots will find a penalizing and snake filled desert.  For my round in December of 2016, I would find 3 birdies and 0 rattlesnakes.  

It’s the most remarkable desert site I’ve ever seen. None of the others are in the same league with Stone Canyon.
