Staff friendly. Course in great shape except the bunkers were packed and hard. Scenery was not all that great. Worst part was time of play 4 hours and 45 minutes. Went fine until we caught up with group in front of us on hole 8 - very slow after that. Too expensive to recommend. Try Quintero.

Course conditions were excellent - these are some of the best greens you will ever play. The layout is challenging. There is considerably more room off the tee than it appears, but the greens and approach shot positioning are very demanding. There have also been many additions to the amenities since my last visit - restaurant, bar, clubhouse, etc. Staff was very helpful and friendly. My only negative comment is that they need to have drinking water on the course. Overall an excellent experience and good value.

One of the most entertaining courses in the State. Our group played the tips which with the elevated tees plays shorter than the 7000 yardage... until the wind picks up around 9am. Roller coaster ups and downs to selectively bunkered mounded green complexes. Don't be above the pin on these supreme bent grass greens. Three jack city for the player on the wrong levels, but birdie putts that gently slip in true with the proper approach. New clubhouse since last fall is a terrific add to this fine location and impressive golf community. A must play for serious and adventurous golfers.

11 index player, was paired up with 2 members, great guys that helped with some of the course anomalies. Greens were extremely fast and undulating to the point of being ridiculous. Played the back white tees, which was OK. Uphill par 5s are difficult, have blind shots with tightly mowed fairways. Good 2nd shots would roll back 80-100 yards!! Because of the difficulty with the course setup, I would only recommend this course with a caveat. For the occasional outing, I'd say look somewhere else. With a lot of course knowledge, this would be a course you could play over and over without getting bored. PS: The restaurant and bar are terrific.

Extremely lush and beautiful fairways. Well maintained tee boxes. Greens are well maintaned but tend to be fast. Also, many of the greens are unusually shaped such that some pin placements make putting very difficult.

Drove up from Phoenix to play this gem. WOW!!! Very few courses in as pristine condition as this one. The practice facility is first class. We felt like we were putting the first divots in the fairways. Greens very fast and undulating and a little hard to get used to the speed but would get used to it playing it a few more times. Already have 2 more tee times in the next week. We are going to play the 9 hole course (Lil' Wick) as well for an extra $15. You will not be disappointed.

as always w/r is in great condition/shape and the staff is always very nice from the pro shop staff to the "1st" starter to everyone,My only complaint is the beverage cart lady,Rude..we saw her on a tee bax around 5th or 6th hole she turned around and went away,did not she her again for at least 6 or so holes and asked her why she turned and left..she did not answer..and then was rude about helping us with drinks or ice at that time..she needs to be told that the people playing the course help her keep her job.. otherwise course is in GREAT shape, greens awesome....hard to read and very quick/fast but a great golf course a long way from phoenix/scottsdale/glendale but worth the drive

Wickenburg Ranch is just incredible. Course is much better than most private courses I've played. Tough track but definitely fair. Love that the rangers/starters make it a point to speed up groups. Ok that group might get irritated but the rest of the groups out there are happy. Yes this is a far drive for almost everybody but it's worth it. Only course that's better in my opinion is Quintero. Price is fantastic and love this place so much.

Make the drive. It's as simple as that.

If you are staying in the Phoenix area, pay Wickenburg Ranch a visit. I played in March and of the 6 courses I played, including Quintero, Verrado, and We-Ko-Pa this had the nicest greens and fairways. The conditioning was just incredible for any course, public or private. Wickenburg also has bent grass greens which is pretty rare for desert courses. And those greens roll pure and true!

I also thought the value was excellent. I played in the afternoon for $85. That's an incredible peak season deal compared to some of the resorts which get way more play.

I couldn't stay after the round, but the club house and patio look awesome. Tons of outdoor space, fire pits, etc. Looked like a perfect spot for a cold one.

I had heard the rumors about this course so I took the long drive, about an hour from my Surprise home. I am so glad I did!! The staff was extremely helpful guiding me to the clubhouse, they were also very thorough explaining the course. The course itself may be one of the nicest I have played in Arizona, the Bent Greens were slick and true. The course was lush and tightly manacured. My only knock would be the cart girl came around one time in 18 holes. Other than that...make the drive!!!! Worth every dollar!!! I'll be back!!!
