Type Resort/Private
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.

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.
