A Unique Golf Experience
Jay Morrish refers to Stone Canyon as the “the culmination of my career.”
As one of the premier golf course architects in the country, Jay Morrish realized a challenge when he saw it. Many times Jay had related the story of his first visit to Stone Canyon and upon viewing the site commented that his challenge would not be in creating something special, but rather to not mess up the layout that nature had provided to him. His years of experience led him to say about Stone Canyon, “It’s the most remarkable desert site I’ve ever seen. None of the others are in the same league with Stone Canyon.” When asked which of his courses will stand the test of time, Jay replied, “I think Stone Canyon will hold up over the years. It has everything but an ocean – changes in elevation, beautiful rock formations, and desert flora. It’s an awesome piece of land.
Situated at the base of the picturesque Tortolita Mountains, Stone Canyon provides the most spectacular desert setting anywhere. With views of the majestic Santa Catalina Mountains everywhere you turn, golfers will be amazed by the breathtaking beauty. From the rock formations to the thousands of giant saguaros overlooking the lush, green fairways, tees, and putting surfaces.
About Stone Canyon:
The golf course itself encompasses 18 uniquely designed golf holes, with teeing options ranging from 5,100 yards to over 7,300 yards. Each hole has a minimum of 5 tee pads making the course enjoyable for the beginner golfer, yet challenging for the accomplished player. The course provides ample landing zones off the tee along with multiple risk reward options throughout the layout. Undulating, bent grass greens and strategically placed bunkers, provide a fun challenge for all those who play. If 18 holes aren’t enough, Stone Canyon’s 19th hole, a 107-yard par 3, is perfect for settling your bets or practicing your short game! It’s easy to see why Stone Canyon is consistently ranked among the best courses in the country.
