Dinosaur is still my absolute favorite...

Played Dinosaur Mtn at Gold Canyon last Saturday - with all the rain we received in January and February, the conditions were phenomenal - the best I have ever seen in the 6 years I've been playing out there.

Greens were slick and perfect, and the rough was mowed low and tight. Just like a hack like me needs it to be....

This course definitely has the most dramatic elevation changes and breathtaking views of any course in the valley. #2 and #5 are two of the best par 3's in Scottsdale in my opinion - both require picking the right stick. #2 is 174 from the blues where I'd normally hit a hard 6 iron, but with the elevation change, I hit an 8-iron long. At hole #5 - Ya gotta play it from the's a 236 yard shot, but with the elevation change, you should be able to get home with a 3 or 4 iron - awesome views. This tee box is where you should break out the camera.

If you haven't played "The Dino" yet, now is the time. I promise you won't be disappointed.
