Dobson

Dobson Ranch is a great city course, especially in the off season. There are plenty of trees and hazards to keep you challenged, and white fairways for the errant shot. Don’t hook left on the ninth hole, you’ll end up in the driving range. Unfortunately the driving range uses white balls.

Still a great track

I used to play Dobson Ranch regularly in the early 2000’s but have only played once since then. The course is still a great challenge and in excellent shape. The best compliment I can give is that my playing partners that never played the course before were amazed by how it played. Sneaky tough was the consensus with the greens being in great shape and hard to score if you’re in the wrong spots. The shop staff needs a lesson in customer experience but that’s not uncommon for a muni track. We were one of the first groups off so pace of play was good.

Good old Dobson Ranch

For those of you who have played here you know how Dobson Ranch is. For those who haven’t I’m about to tell ya. Dobson Ranch is a blast when it’s not overbooked. Luckily my round today was on course for a good pace of play. The ranger made quite a few rounds around the course which is kind of annoying but he’s there for a reason. The greens were sorta fast and pin placements were devilish. The fairways were rough due to them aerating the bad spots out but was still playable. The kid behind the counter was slow. Dobson Ranch is a fun course to play don’t get me wrong. I grew up playing this course and know it like the back of my hand. I suggest at least trying it.

Great Muni course.

I’ve always liked this course. Played with a friend whom was his first time. He really enjoyed it. The greens are rolling true. I made a 40 ft birdie putt that started on my line. If you want to score low on this course you need to be able to work the ball both directions off the tee box. Still very playable if you can’t. The course is in good condition for our transition period.

Might have been better

Home of the 5 1/2 hour round, not a bad layout but the overall conditions were just fair. Staff in club house should look for jobs where they don't have to deal with people.

Nice course

Good experience however the staff was not very friendly. The carts did not include a cooler which is a must in the Arizona heat and they also charged for a cup of ice on the course.
