Rating 71.0
The Lakes/Dunes Course at Gainey Ranch is actually two distinct nine-hole courses of three offered at Gainey Ranch. The golf courses, which are played in three 18-hole combinations, are all unique from each other meaning that they offer a wide range of challenges. The Lakes Course naturally features several water hazards in addition to providing a delightful landscape of lush, green meadow and lovely waterways. On the last hole of the Lakes Course there is a beautiful, sparkling waterfall The Dunes Course is a desert-style course that requires shot accuracy off the tee and a light touch on the greens. Rainey Ranch's rolling terrain also provides a few uneven lies.

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.
