SunRidge Canyon Golf Club is now offering exclusive golf rates to Oklahomans traveling to the Valley of the Sun to cheer on the Cowboys and Sooners. From December 26 to January 6, the special rate will be $99 plus tax Monday-Thursday and $109 plus tax Friday-Sunday, a savings of $36 and $50 respectively. These special rates include 18 holes of golf, golf cart and warm-up balls. Stay and Play packages also available.
SunRidge Canyon unfolds around the rugged ridges and shady canyons unique to the Sonoran desert. Golfers soon discover that the golf course wasn't so much created by a bulldozer as it was carved out over eons by the relentless pressure of wind and water. Foster had the good sense to follow Mother Nature's lead, and in the end, the beauty and challenge of SunRidge Canyon is unlike any other desert golf experience in Scottsdale.
