Rancho Manana Golf Club
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.

Ranch Manana is AWSEOME!
Love playing this course.......there are two really cool downhill Par 3's and the views of Carefree & Cave Creek cannot be beat!
Best course I’ve been to in awhile
Welcome to the oasis! This course is amazing. So many elevations changes. Tight fairways and small green. You better come with your A game and camera for the many beautiful views. We will be back.
Challenging but fun
What a beautiful day to golf at Rancho Manana. First time to the course. The Marshall was fantastic! Funny, informative, and patient with us newbies
The course was outstanding! Well groomed and the out of bounds areas kept your game tight. It’s about how to really capitalize on the first swing; don’t rely on the driver to set the course.
Always a great experience at this course. My absolute favorite course ever. Highly recommend!
Love this place
Best views, lots of wild life and the staff is amazing. Best place to golf!
First time I’ve had a complaint
I love this course, but here’s my issue;
I brought my wife with me to hang out. They charged me $20 for her to ride in the cart. I’ve never heard of anything so absurd, and I’ve never heard of this being done at any other course in 45 years of play. Obviously this is some resort charge they’ve come up with, and apparently a long time ago. Yep. Still angry about it.
Great conditions, beautiful vistas
Very interesting golf course in superb conditions with superb views. The front 9 is very tight, with elements of target golf, so bring plenty of balls.
Fun in the foothills
Strong layout, many elevations changes. Fun tees. Grass in top shape, green smooth.
Short but all you want
Teed off early because of 100° temp. predicted for later. Course in great shape, greens quite slow but do hold..Pace of play excellent. Pay attention to back of scorecard to hole layout as many blind holes and you may want to keep driver in the bag.
Rancho Manana Golf Course
One of my favorite golf courses. Course condition was very good. The scenery is spectacular. Saw many quail, some roadrunners and ducks.
Will definitely go back and play again. If you hit good shots you will be rewarded, but errant shots will cost you in golf balls.
April 19, 2020 - great conditions
A spectacular day and a gorgeous course in great condition. Water running through course and ideal playing conditions. The course will leave your head shaking for first timers. Driver isn’t necessary and downright dangerous on several holes starting with #1.
Love this course. It is in the best shape I’ve ever seen it, beautiful conditions. I really enjoy the layout, really a course that makes you think. If you play here & automatically grab your driver, you had better bring a bunch of extra golf balls. A totally enjoyable round.
This course is not worth the $100 price tag. The tee boxes and fairways are long, and the greens aren’t the best in the area. Save money and golf elsewhere for $100.
Manana and the virus
I have played here fairly often. Today, they were extremely accommodating. Individual carts and allowed to play alone. The virus is affecting everyone. Slow time for them in an otherwise very busy time of the year.
A little pricey
This course is fun and not overly challenging. The elevation changes make for some fun shots and great views! I was expected a little nicer condition for the price I paid. This course could be great, but it’s current state seems a little unkept.
