There was a frost delay, so it's unfair to fully judge based on that, but we had issue with the starter on how he could best send groups out and could have paired groups together more effectively. We finished (17 holes) in the dark as a result. Additionally, while the greens were smooth and very puttable, the color of the greens were the same color as the rest of the course. From a distance, you could not "see the green". Finally, 6000 yards from the Blues is way too short.

Different layout than most area courses.

Elevation changes make it interesting and takes some getting used to using one or two clubs more or less. Course was in good shape and views were interesting. Biggest issue was after 3rd hole 10 minute waits on every hole to tee off. Round took 5 hours. Called pro shop on sixth hole to inform them of delays. Said ranger was on his way. Delays did not change and in fact on one par 3 there were 12 waiting golfers. Would play again only if I was assured it would take 4 - 41/2 hours to play as advertised.

Length has nothing to do with this course. It is strategic golf at its best. Your club selection is king. Be sure to look up and see the amazing views. Lots of elevated tees. This was the best course we played in the 8 days we were in Phoenix/Scottsdale and we played TPC Stadium and The Boulders. Have lunch at Tontos on the patio and soak it in. Then go visit the little Western town of Cave Creek about 3 minutes drive from the course. It all makes for a great day.

A favorite course when we come to the Phoenix area. It is not the newest or fanciest, but it is very playable and the elevation changes are lovely. Some very easy holes and some very challenging. Just a great place to go for golf and then dinner at Tonto, the restaurant at the resort.

While most people would think of Troon North, Grayhawk, and The Boulders when golfing in this area I say Rancho Manana is a real gem in the midst of all these Great Courses. The layout is just as interesting and beautiful as those other courses named with lots of elevation changes and quite a challenge with blind shots everywhere. While the course is very short, 6000 yards from the blue tees, its layout and small greens make it a challenge for most golfers.

With the exception of some Shaggy greens that were causing the ball to roll a little slow but true the course was in fabulous shape.

Beautiful scenery.

Pace of play overall was ok. Very slow until you get past the 2nd downhill par 3.

Wish golf could be more affordable

My only complaint, was the pace of play. We had to wait on every hole starting on the 3rd due to the groups in front of us. The ranger indicated there were a lot of first time players on the course. Twice we wait 20 or more minutes to tee off causing 3 groups to be on the tee.

I loved this place. Course in great condition (greens were a wee bit slow, however) and very scoreable. As a female golfer, most of my second shots were all irons, which I loved. Super pretty views, very helpful staff, restaurant very good as well. First time in my life I ever played back-to-back rounds. If I lived out here, this would be my "go to" course.
