This is a fantastic course, challenging and a lot of blind shots. Be sure to read the handout book they give you before each shot. My favorite hole is # 14 with the water running all the way down the left side of the hole, simply "breathtaking". Yes, totally enjoyed this wonderful "gem in the desert".

Overall the course is in great shape. For a first timer, there is no diagram of each hole on the scorecard or on a tee box. Many blind greens - up hill and around cliff corners. Never saw a level green on the course. We much prefer Quintero for the scenery, layout and pricing.

Wickenburg Ranch was a very good course. It was in fabulous shape, and the greens were firm and fast, but fair. Due to some elevation changes, the course plays longer than what's listed on the scorecard - the starter will advise you of this before teeing off - it's definitely the case. It is located about 75 miles from Phoenix and depending on traffic - could be about an hour and half away. Still - it's worth the trip and is recommended.

If you are a golfer, are up for a challenge and can stomach the drive, then go!

The conditioning is 11/10. The clubhouse and amenties (eg Lil Wick) are also cool.

The layout itself was undoubtedly very good, but not mind blowing.

In terms of value, this is much better than Quintero or some others in PHX (eg Troon, We-Ko-Pa), but it comes at a cost of an hr~ drive.

Excellent course in fantastic shape. Not easy to play the first time around. Plays longer than the yardage. Fairways, greens & green complexes all in outstanding shape. Greens were putting at 9-9 1/2. Would prefer them a little faster. Friendly and very accommodating staff. Nothing but good things to say about this golf experience. One reminder, gps based yardage devices didn’t work because of the lack of cel service. Course is well marked however. Take this ride to Wickenburg. You will not be disappointed.

Heard conflicting reviews of the course. Maybe the negatives were because of the difficultly of the course, but I found the course to be a good test of golf. The greens were difficult to read and that added to the challenge. The conditions of the fairways and greens was superb, however the bunkers were poor. Very, very hard packed with rocks. Not worthy of a 5 star course rating. We played with another couple and the forward tees were OK for the ladies. There are some challenging holes, even from the forward tees, but the wives both enjoyed the course. Probably the worst hole is the par 5 number 9, if you have not played the course before. Do expect we will be back if the opportunity arises. Rate the course as one of the top 5 we've played in the PHX area. Much better than the TPC Champions. Prices was comparable, but for the $$$, Wickenburg Ranch would be our preference. The driving range was closed, so we did not get to take advantage of that before our round. The starter was very informative about the course and what to expect. The barber poles are aiming points and not the 150 yard poles, so that helped with planning for the perfect tee shot.
