The Canyons Course

The Canyons Course is the perfect compliment to the Palmer Course.  Rated more difficult than the Palmer course, the Canyons has two distinct front and back 9 layouts.

The front 9 plays a lot like the Palmer course, however the back 9 demands length and precision to narrow targets. Every hole is distinct in its features utilizing every club in your bag. Like the Palmer Course, the back 9 of the Canyons was designed by Arnold Palmer.
