The golf course at Red Mountain Ranch & Country Club is a beautifully designed layout set against a desert landscape with rock formations, mesquite trees, and cacti. Pete and Perry Dye designed the course, combining both beauty and challenge. This championship course was built on rolling terrain and has large, sharply contoured greens and extensive mounding that is reinforced with railroad ties. There are not only deep sand bunkers but also grass bunkers protecting the greens. There are also four ponds on the course at Red Mountain Ranch & Country Club, but only three create water hazards that come into play on four holes. A notable hole on the course in which water comes into play is the sixth, a hole that has a peninsula green with water surrounding it along three sides.

Bad Pace of Play & Overpriced

Unfortunately there was not a ranger today on a Saturday morning to help keep pace of play. We waited on the final 13 holes and even had 4 groups on one hole at one point. While most AZ courses aren’t in the best conditions right now, this was overpriced for the quality.

Great course and friendly people

Staff was great. Group ahead let me play through. Course was awesome. Greens were funky due to aeration, but that comes with maintenance so no big deal.

I had a great time this morning

Course is beautiful

Course is amazing minus the greens rn. Summertime heat is killing the greens bad and I’m not a huge fan. But other than that the course is fantastic.

Not a great value

upon arrival found only back 9 open to play due to main water line leak on hole 5 front nine. Not much value in paying this much for summer golf in Arizona and not being able to play entire course. Was given what they called a bounce back coupon will charge a 20 fee to play there again if it is before Sept 15. I feel that due to the price they charged to paly in the summer heat and only being able to play half the course that they should have given a complimentary round of golf as a good fait h gesture to show their commitment too a higher level of customer service, especially in these extreme times with the pendemic and all.

Bring your "A" Game!

What a treat test of golf!
You better hit it straight!
Will play the combo tees next time as this 65+ old geezer doesn't hit that far anymore.
They punch Monday so glad I was able to play before that.
If you haven't played here yet, yo need to go try it out.
Have fun and may God bless you.

Very challenging course. Definitely a true sonoran desert style course. Course management is a must here or the course will manage you. There is a good reason why this course has a high slope of 144 with a 73.8 rating!

If you think you got great game, this course will most definitely challenge your game. Narrow fairways with lots of hills, a few blind shots with plenty of bunkers and undulating greens will thoroughly test your golf skills.

Greens were nice and fast rolling around 10 or 11. All fairways were green and well kept with hardly any dead or dry spots. Course is long from the championship tees where I played from. Target golf!

No drinking water on the course due to Covid pandemic and no beverage cart. No GPS on the carts.

No PGA tournaments on this course. PGA players do not play on courses with this style of layout as it will make them look average.

Nice course for the price. Every golfer needs to play a course like this to experience a really tough layout and test their game.

Very Nice Desert Course

An interesting and challenging golf course. Lots of variety from hole to hole, and several scenic vistas. Pete Dye did a great job of designing a course that is playable, but at times, demanding. The course is in great shape. It is well worth the value.

Pete Dye Rollercoaster

Course was no walk in the park for the average golfer . Design emphasis is definitely a 150 yd box & approach shot premium wt very few level ground fairways & traps galore .. Course knowledge given by yardage book and starter were extremely helpful. Greens were not easy wt all slopes . I was intrigued wt all the different type of green protectors / hazards used .Played early no food available till after 11am. Would benefit playIng again wt course knowledge gained for sure!
