The fairways are close together so you must hit the ball straight or else your on another hole. Sand traps with deep pits were very challenging. Greens very fast and hard to judge speed.

The course was in very good shape on the fIrways and the greens. The rough was brown and provided a lot of extra roll. The pace of play was excellent on the front nine but was significantly slower on the back nine. This, I attribute to groups stopping at the club house or snack shack to replenish supplies before moving on to the next hole. Our foursome finished the round in 4.5 hours. The course has three par fives on the front and one par five on the back nine. It is an enjoyable round.we will be back.

Always like this course,but ther is no one to help carry your bags and it is a long way. I would pay for someone to help. Also charge $1:00 for the cart key, and to return it for your dollar is a long way to the clubhouse.

Very good Municipal course. Greens and fairways in good shape. No rough to speak of just the dormant Bermuda. Terrific deal at $25 to walk. Pace of play ok except for back nines par threes. ( 3 groups on12th), overall 4:45

Only complaint is there is no drinking water on course. Pro shop very accommodating

Dobson Ranch GC is a great value. The staff was friendly and took care of a booking problem that I had quickly and effectively. That was greatly appreciated.

The fairways and greens were in good shape. Pace of play was good until the three pars on the back nine. Even so, I was able to complete the round in less than four hours while walking.

It is a tradition course, so don’t expect desert play or views.
