Rating 71.9

Gainey Ranch possesses three nine-hole golf courses that are combined to form three 18-hole combinations. Each course has a distinct character that provides different challenges. The courses were built on a lush, rolling meadow. The Arroyo Course has a traditional design with one of the most difficult holes of all the courses, the notable ninth hole. It gets its reputation from its tricky island green that is guarded by four greenside sand bunkers. The Lakes Course, true to its name, has plenty of water including dazzling waterways and even a waterfall on the last hole. Combined, the two Gainey Ranch courses create a scenic and challenging round.

Loved it so Much I played it twice

I played Gainey Ranch two days in a row because it was so beautiful and I enjoyed it so much. I don’t think I could pick a favorite nine or 18 holes - if you are lucky enough to get a chance to play here, be happy to play whatever routing they send you on!

Gorgeous everywhere!

I loved everything about Gainey Ranch. The people in the pro shop were very nice, the starters were great and starters too. The course was gorgeous everywhere! Everywhere! I was able to play all 27 holes and loved the layout of the course at every turn. Special thanks to Alex in the pro shop and Sydney on the beverage cart for making me feel welcome!

Desert Golf rhe Way it Shoudl Be

We played the Arroyo and the Dunes nines on a mild and blustery weekday morning. These two golf courses are perfectly manicured
with amazing greens, fairways and tees.
There are many beautiful flowering plants, rocks, and decorative cacti throughout this layout.
The pace of play was well under four hours and there were no distractions here despite the existence of a small army of maintenance workers who did their best to remain invisible.
The Dunes course is relatively short with holes protected by large bunkers and steep berms. Every hole has a dogleg and none are straight
shots.
The Arroyo course plays longer, brings water into play, and has more sidehill lies and narrower fairways.
Swede was an affable and helpful starter who later showed up on the course to provide more helpful information. The proshop is fully stocked and the sign in went smoothly.
The have a beautiful clubhouse and the dining room was full at lunch.
