GREEN VALLEY, Ariz. (April 12, 2007) - One look at the rock wall carved out of a mountain on No. 2 and you know you\'ve found one of those golf courses. One of those underrated, super-priced finds off the paved golf resort path.
That imposing rock side on the edge of No. 2\'s fairway is just the beginning of a day of wows. You didn\'t know what to expect when you took the 45-minute drive from Tucson out to Canoa Ranch Golf Club. You surely didn\'t expect this.
Canoa Ranch turns out to be the little golf course that\'s great. This Schmidt-Curley design unfolds along an up, down and around desert landscape with interesting hole after interesting hole. No holes blend together here. You\'re not going to mistake No. 7 for No. 15 or anything like that.
Instead, it\'s gulp strong and swing stronger.
And don\'t listen to the owner.
\"This course is too freaking hard,\" Canoa Ranch owner Bob McMahon roars, though freaking might have been a different F-word. \"It was designed for guys like him.\"
McMahon points his finger at David Powell, his general manager and a former University of Arizona scholarship golfer.
\"Schmidt-Curley are zero handicappers too,\" McMahon said.
