Dobson Ranch is...
A great beginners course and even good for the intermediate golfer. I grew up playing here and still enjoy playing here. The management has changed hands but looks like they have done a better job of not stacking the course full that it turns into a 6 hour round (yikes I know). They recently aerated the fairways and greens and started replacing the trees that were lost in the monsoon storm last season. The greens were soft but rolled well and even with slightly patchy fairways it was in good shape. I recommend playing here at least once to judge for yourself.

For a City owned course, this is a diamond in the rough. For this time of year with the extreme heat, this course is in good shape. The fairways have some bare spots, but overall are good and would be better if the users would use sense to fill divots and fix hallmarks. The greens are in okay shape and quick. They have been aerated and sanded. This is good or the price
Always a jewel
Was worried by the cranky staff person checking people in but thankfully, that was the last employers we dealt with for the day. Was instructed we could tee off only if the tee box was cleared, it was by the time we had walked to it so his instructions were a bit strange. Never had to wait or even saw the group in front till the parking lot changing shoes. Played quickly and built an amazing pace. Fairways were soft making a nice challenge having to play an extra club or two today than normal. Greens were a little sandy due to greens maintenance but still rolled true. Played fast but not hurried. Finished 18 holes in 2 hours 15 minutes, walking. Fellow golfers, don’t except 5 hour rounds as normal at this course.
Greens aerated this week and was expected. Enjoyed playing the layout.
Normally a great place to play, not this time. The starter needs to take more control over when people tee off and create more of a gap. Also, the pace was terrible, front 9 took 3 hours and for 18 5 1/2 hours. Get people moving faster and picking up if they need to.
I play here regularly and I will play again but if the pace of play continues to be this slow I will stop playing here and go play somewhere else.

The course itself is in good condition. One of the few courses in town with enough sand to play in the bunkers. The Greens were firm and fast. The fairways and tee boxes were maintained and in good shape.
The pace of play was atrocious. At times there were 2 groups waiting at each tee box. The young starter was intimidated to some extent by the overbearing people who thought they were in the PGA. The second problem is as we see sometime the players who have the idea that they are better and hit from the wrong tees.
These are the same folks who do not rake traps or repair divots on the fairway and ball marks on the green. This course will eventually have issues because of this.
There needs to be course marshalls to deal with these issues. I would recommend this course but these issues need to be fixed.
I have played Dobson for the past 30 years and the staff has never been better. They greeted us with a friendly attitude and were very helpful. This place is being run like a higher end golf course now not like a city owned course and it is great.
The course was in great condition and when we called about getting the group ahead of us to speed up the marshal arrived very quickly to move them along.
Keep up the great work, the changes have made Dobson my go to course from now on.
Father's day outing
Greens were nice but alittle slow. There were some challenges on the greens with the pin placements today.
Pace of play
The pace of play was 3 hours and 30 minutes. The staff was friendly and the conditions were satisfactory. We will play here again
I play here about once a week and have always felt like the management team was subpar at best.
I went in last week to hit balls, thinking twice because the range and balls were always in such bad shape. I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted with a friendly salutation in the club house by Andrew who is new to the team and he informed me that the course was under new management! Wow... what a difference already. They have made massive strides in improving the practice facilities and if Andrews hospitality and likability is any indication of the future, I’m a huge fan!
New management for the win!
Real Nice expierience 2day.
Got there N was help.by Daniel I think & promptly checked in. Met up W/another couple of locals that COULDN'T have been more solid ! Sand, fairways N Greens played Very well & will look 4ward to gettin' back in the Summer 'cause of all the Shade providing trees ! TY Folks & B Well.
Best value in Phoenix metro
Given the convenient location, challenging but fair layout, and course conditions, you won't do better than Dobson Ranch for the price. The greens are large, undulating, in flawless shape with reliable/predictable speed. Bunkers are fluffy and consistent.
Intelligent staff common sense
The staff at Dobson Ranch exceeded with their accommodations. The staff canceled my tee time without charging me for it. The staff thought through and put the customer first. I will be back and play here many times over. If they did charge me I would have never gone back
