This course is in pristine condition but the greens are manicured so well that they are EXTREMELY fast. If you are not a low handicap move up on the tees. We were first group of the day and the ranger was very rude to us cause we were "20 minutes behind " his desired pace by 13th hole.

Wickenburg Ranch is a beautiful course in the hills north of wickenburg. We played in the morning and the greens had just been rolled. They were fast and treacherous. There are many outstanding views on the course. They are building the clubhouse, the start of the round involves a long cart ride and you are shuttled back to parking at the end. On the par fives they could use a few signs giving distance to the trouble.

Our foursome played as they were in the process of moving to their permanent clubhouse so we had a limited breakfast selection and a shuttle ride but throughout the service was maintained at a high level. I was amazed by the condition of the course. The tee boxes barely had a mark on them, the greens were fast and the fairways tough but wide enough. At the end of our round they have an area outside halfway down the hill to the 1st green for drinks & cigars. Our waiter was from Kosovo originally and indulged all our curious questions. Great kid! Overall our foursome couldn't have asked for a better experience. If they stay public and I can get any kind of reasonable rate we'll be back again & again!

Although this course is very challenging it is at the same time very fair. Most holes present a well designed risk reward option. Hit the ball well and you will be justly rewarded however miss-hits are an entrée to big trouble. I found the greens to be very fast but very true. Be prepared for a lot of surprises when playing this course for the first time. Several strokes can be spared once you gain an understanding of what lurks around the corner.

Played here a few times now and have to say it is as close as it gets to perfect golf. Once clubhouse is finished this place will be tough to top. Very challenging course. Some of the toughest greens to be found. Fast and tough to read. Several holes would be signature holes on many courses.

What an outstanding experience all around. A haul to get there from Scottsdale, but worth the trip. Course is amazing. Great layout, immaculate condition. Every tee, fairway, green and even the rough was groomed to perfection. No two holes the same. Have played about 20 of the courses consistently ranked "Top whatever" in the country, and this one is in my top three. Make the drive out there. Even the food and drinks were great. I drove back for a second round the same trip.

I had played Wickenburg Ranch before, and knew that the price was a great value. It was cheaper I suppose because it was an 8:10 tee time, and 40 degrees. There turned out to be a frost delay, and we teed off at 9:20, first group off and no one in front of us. We played in 3 1/2 hrs. The course was immaculate, weather perfect, staff (kudos to Jason), great. I ate breakfast and lunch at "Jakes Spoon", also excellent food and great value. As an added bonus, we played the newly opened lil' Wick, the par 3 course for $15. I was grouped with 3 other nice folks, and had a banner day. Can't wait to go back.

This course offers spectacular views from the time you step into the clubhouse. The practice facilities were the best I've seen. The course layout was great with a lot of elevation change. The greens are huge and fast with almost all of them having multiple tiers! You have to know where the pin is or you're in trouble! Water comes into play on a few holes and will really test your shot making ability. The par 3 Lil Wick was also enjoyable and offers the same level of challenging greens as the main course. Plus the watering hole is a great place to grab a beverage and a bite to eat while catching the game on tv. I highly recommend playing this course before it becomes private.

Total layout is exciting at every turn. There are no boring holes.Several holes with water features are awesome.

Fairways and greens grass conditions unbelievably perfect. Sand in bunkers perfect.

**Should have a interim clubhouse type facility after ninth hole. Course continues without returning to clubhouse after nine holes.

Playing experienced would be enhanced with a stop for lunch, golf balls and other supplies (weather related) Plus opportunity to sit back and enjoy all the views before continuing play on back nine.

The additional 9 hole executive course is unbelievable. A great entertaining layout complete with MUSIC and FOOD on every hole.

Comments on 19th hole clubhouse is presumptive, since this awesome looking building is not quite finished.
