For a great Washington State golf getaway Desert Canyon Golf Resort is situated high above the Columbia River halfway between Wenatchee and Chelan. Golf and sun enthusiasts appreciate the remarkably warmer weather, welcoming staff and full resort amenities – including the luxurious Lodge at Desert Canyon or Casita accommodations. Both options feature fully equipped kitchens, separate bedrooms and comfortable furnishings, all within walking distance of the pro shop, restaurant / bar, and driving range.
The golf course is spectacular with scenic views of the Columbia River, surrounding apple orchards and mountains. The fairways are lush, the greens run true and the course will challenge every golfer’s ability (with GPS on the golf carts to assist). For families it’s a perfect blend of fun and activities including a swimming pool and kid-friendly 18-hole putting course. Lake Chelan is 25 minutes away for more water sports, boating and wine-tasting.
An ownership change last year gave some golfers the impression that the course was closed. According to regular visitors, the changes are all positive and have resulted in many improvements Including dining, course maintenance and staffing.
