About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 7005
Slope 135
Rating 73.1
Type Semi-Private
The Ranch course at Tonto Verde Golf Club is the newer one, this golf course designed exclusively by Gary Panks, who laid it out over 6,988 yards, upon which it has played host to several golf events at the professional and amateur level since it opened in 2002. The Ranch golf course at the Tonto Verde Golf Club serves power golfers due to the distance, though it will certainly test those who golf a good short, thanks to big greens that are bunkered well and slope, too. The Tonto Verde Golf Club offers stay-and-play packages for those who don't want to lodge themselves too far from the Peaks and Rancho golf courses. Pets are generally welcome, and the minimum stay is only three nights.

Greens in great shape

The course recently hosted a tournament and it’s in great shape. The greens are very smooth. Any burned spots on the fairway are marked under repair. If you haven’t played here, the course is very scenic. The holes are challenging. There are 5 sets of tees so you can play the right set for you. The course is a little remote but worth the drive.

great value, great features

From lunch on the patio and a 3 and 1/2 hr round with good friends, could not ask for more.

Course was fair, greens tough to read and fast.

Conditions overall great. Would play it again

Hidden Oasis

Second time playing the course and was in great shape. Has the feel of a private club, out door patio over looking water complex, 18 hole putt putt course, nice practise area. The members are very friendly & staff too. Played the white blue combo at around 6300 yards, as a 11 handicap shot a 83 so picked the right tees. Good mix of holes, don't need driver on every hole unless your a bomber. Greens roll great & are very tricky. Great mountain back drop views. All in all a nice track to play.

never seen anyone after the check in at pro shop

We arrived really early so we had a great lunch with Dominique as our server. She was extra friendly and the food was great. From there on our experience was not very good. Told in the pro shop that the starter would get us going and the beverage cart would be available all day out on the course. Never seen either so glad at least there was water on the course. When the temp hits 90+ a beverage cart is a must. The course was in fair condition with lots of dead spots. We played six different courses and this one was in the worst condition. Go for the food and leave to golf at a better venue.

Father and Son outing.

The course was in great shape and the greens were not too fast or too slow, just right for us. We enjoyed the signature holes on the back nine the most, especially the drivable par 4. The Club house and pro shop was well furnished, and a very pleasant experience. All of the staff was remarkably pleasant even though we were non members.

Nice course, staff not so nice

The course is in great shape! It's a very fair course, not one of those target courses. The starter was rather rude. He kept his eye on our group at the range, like he didn't like us being there. We decided to go up to the first tee about twelve minutes before our start time. He followed us up there and chased us away saying "you're too early, there's another group before you." We went back to the practice area and waited until he allowed us to go up there. The group before us never showed up and we had a twosome behind us hot on our tail. If they don't like offering hot deals they should stop. We were all dressed in appropriate golf attire. My husband has a 4 handicap, so it wasn't like we were a group of hacks.

Excellence

Me and my wife just started playing again after a medical sabbatical.

We had a wonderful time, everyone was very gracious and eager to please.

Everything from the condition of the practice area to the clubhouse, the restaurant,

and the pro shop was top notch.

We played the Ranch course, and it was in spectacular condition!

We will be making frequent visits to this club for meals, drinks as well as enjoy

playing the courses as well.

Thanks again for having such a professional and prestine establishment.

William and Lana Webb
