The course is in excellent shape and a beautiful location. I play it every year. The course requires precise shots, but the fairways and greens are in perfect shape. The greens are very fast and demanding. I found it challenging and a great place to begin the new year.

Another bonus is the wildlife. Watching the blue heron with the fabulous Mountain View is a thrill. This is a magic place.

Amazing course and facilities:

Amenities: 2nd to none. Pro driving range, putting green, short game area. They have an 18 hole putting practice course that wraps around a waterfall pond. Clubhouse is one of the best ive ever seen. Just an amazing facility!!!

Experience: Course was in fantastic shape. We teed off at 9:30 and I barely saw a soul the entire round. Played 3.25 hours. Views were 4/5 and homes and architecture were great scenery.

Golf: Course had tremendous width. Plenty of room to land drives. Greens were LARGE but undulating and fast without being gimmicky. The course was perfect for my 70+ old playing partners as it was wide, but perfect challenge for me the single cap golfer because of strategic bunkering, greens that made you hit the right spot and well planned flow ways you needed to carry.

Paid $80 and it was well worth it. great experience!!!

Not only the pace of play, but the speed of the greens - they were very quick. Course was in great shape and pretty empty. My only snag with my outing was that I was approached on the range by a course representative and told, "Sorry sir, but denim is not allowed on this course." I informed him that I visited their website and there were no stipulations regarding this condition. He didn't seem to be affected in any way by my comment. And all it required was for me to return to my vehicle and put on a pair of shorts. My suggestion: ease the condition(as most courses have) or make certain it's prominently placed on your site regarding no denim.

Generous fairways and good conditions in a somewhat quiet community. Played the ranch course twice now, would like to see the other course at some point. Recommended!

I have played this course one time previously and the sister course, The Peaks, a half-dozen times. What I noticed especially about The Ranch course is that there are either bunkers or washes that come up at critical distances on nearly every hole. So if you are not dealing with a bunker off the tee you are encountering a wash requiring a layup or an oh so highly well executed shot. Apart from that tricky aspect of the course, the fairways and greens are well maintained in a setting with very nice views. The range facilities are top notch with free range balls. The staff has also always been first rate. Additionally, unless you live in the far northeast part of the Valley, it is a bit of a drive to get to Tonto Verde.

The Course was nice, I booked this course for my husband and I to play.The bag drop service could have been better, we arrived and parked an RV since we were traveling, NO CARTS in the Parking lot so you either drop at the curb or carry your bags through the lot. The staff could have recommended taking the cart down to the driving range or putting practice green which would have been closer to place the bags in the cart for where we were parked.(or the staff could have driven through the parking lot to help with our bags (I know why they have this rule, but at this course you are still crossing roadways in the cart getting to some of the fairways). The cart drop off guys were Nice, just saying this area could have been a little better.
