Length 6004

Rating 67.8
Type Semi-Private
Rancho Manana Golf Club has one of the prettier courses in Cave Creek-Scottsdale, located high in the Sonora and combining vistas with testing golf. It offers a par-70 championship golf course laid out over elevations that change dramatically right up alongside the untouched desert and the indigenous wildlife that comes with that, as well as an old-school dude ranch that has been incorporated into the golf resort. Low-handicap golfers will be challenged by the golf course, but it's not so tough that other levels of golfer will be turned away. The Rancho Manana Golf Club offers golf to the public and is conveniently located just 20 minutes off the highway. After a round of golf at the Rancho Manana Golf Club, stick around for around and maybe some eats at the Tonto Bar & Grill, which has received several awards and is listed among Arizona's top 100 restaurants.

Great Course

I love this course and take advantage of the reduced rates every time. This course is not for beginners as some of the fairways are tight. But the par 3s are a blast and the views are fantastic.

Very slow play

The layout of the course is nice, but the pace of play is real slow. We waited 5 minutes between shots on the front 9. Did not play the back 9 because of this. When we tee’d off the started talked about how they move groups along if the pace of play is slow. This practice was not implemented at all on the course. Disappointing!

Worst Experience

Staff was unfriendly and rude. Club services did not help with bags. Whole staff was very rude. Ranger did not regulate pace of play was spending 20 mins waiting one each hole to tee off. One say on tee box talking with nick one in fairway or green and ranger just drove by and did nothing to speed up play. When confronted her to tell her about it she got belligerent and rude. Spent 94.00 for two people and when asked to be able to come back and play different day because of pace of play took 3 hours to play 9 holes. There was no way a round was gonna take 4 and a half hours. Will not recommend this course or its resort to anyone due to the rude employees at this place.

Great Summer Course

Rancho Mañana has always been a good course to play in the summer and it still is. The course was in good condition although the green were slow due to keeping them longer for the summer heat.

I wish they would give us that play in the summer a 50% voucher to play in the winter when the rates go "out of touch" for the average resident golfer cause this is a great course.

Shot Makets Course

The course is shorter than most but interesting hole layouts. Need to make accurate second shots. Challenging. Course in good shape for this time of year. Worth a visit

Fun local course, (for me)

Not too long, not too tough, but you can’t beat this place for a great day and some spectacular views. Finish the day at Tonto Bar and Grill and I promise, you’ll want to come back. Course is in fine shape considering the Summer heat in the Phoenix Metro Area, but the elevation knocks a couple degrees off. It’s really great if you have out of town visitors that don’t need 6,800 yards to have some fun. You’re welcome.
