Very nice golf course. Will be back for sure. Greens and fairways, sandtraps in excellent condition. Love the mountain views and the homes around the course. Very challenging from the tips. The price is right for this course. Thanks for your hospitality.

Played the peaks before great course much tighter than the ranch must be accurate. Greens firmer than usual tough to stop the ball. Everything is 5 star about this course however a tad maniacal above driving in the rough could be friendlier about that.

My visit to Tonto Verde reminded me of the gem this course is. It is nestled in a residential community in Rio Verde, so every hole is adjacent to homes. Fortunately, they are not so close that they feel intrusive or in play on your errant shots. The setting is very serene, with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. The course itself was in wonderful condition. The fairways were green and well kept, and the greens were fabulous. Except for a handful of unrepaired ballmarks (players' fault, not the club's) the greens were smooth and rolled true, but quick. The bunkers, which I visited often, and are in good numbers on this course, were great. Nice, soft, white sand. Not hard dirt that is found so often at courses out here. The hole layouts were not particularly difficult, but presented a fair challenge, forcing you to choose the proper approach to the greens. The driving range is also wonderful. And, the staff was very friendly. Finally, if you visit this course, take the drive through Fountain Hills, up Pinnacle Road. It's one beautiful ride. I highly recommend this course.

Very good, solid course. Great condition. Challenging, but fair. With that said, you better hit the tee ball straight or it will make for a long day. Good greens.

Played the Rance Course (first time). Course was in excellent shape, greens in great shape and rolled true. Lot of challenging holes, some with target golf. Would like to play the Peaks course next time. Highly recommend this club.
