About

Type Public
Par 72
Length 7011 yards
Slope 131
Rating 72.7

Robert Trent Jones II designed the golf course at Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club, creating a championship course to shift gently from open play to intimate foliage along Willow Wash. The golf delivers Southwestern authenticity, with etroglyph-etched boulders marking holes. It differs from the "target" golf courses of Arizona in that it features player-friendly golf, manicuring transition spaces so that golfers face minimal penalty when recovering.

At the Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club, Robert Trent Jones II demands strategic and varied shooting, meaning the round of golf will challenge as well as refresh golfers.

After the round at the Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club, head back to the casual elegance of the clubhouse.

Friends liked it

We all enjoyed this course but it seems almost every time we play it-it rains! Not their fault of course but frustrating none the less.

Slow and goody

Many holes have small landing areas forcing less than driver off some holes, even par 5. Number 15 only missing a clown’s mouth on the green.

Good Track

From the men meeting us at the bag drop...to the cashier checking us in, the staff could not have been nicer. The breakfast was absolutely great, and the Spicy Burrito is humongous.
Only negative would be the fairways....meaning if there was anything not up to standards, it would be the fairways. With all the rain, most valley courses are solid green, but there were some sparse parts on the fairway.

good value

Great friendly, helpful staff. We Played in 3 and 1/2 hours. The only downside to this course was too goofy holes toward the end of the round, one being about a very short dog leg four par which any big hitter could easily drive. I (male) hot a 4 iron down the middle which went 60 yards thru the fairway. I should have hit a 8 or 9 from the blue tees.
