Good deal for your money, especially if you play there often

The first thing I'll say about Boise Ranch is that it seems like everytime I play there alone I get paired up with a "regular" (usually playing on the very economical punch cards) and I've yet to get paired with someone I wouldn't call a great playing partner. If you have golfed much, you know this can sometimes be rare at clubs where people play often. The staff and grounds crew match this friendliness making this course always pleasant to play.

While not the toughest track in the area Boise Ranch does have plenty of hazards to keep players honest. On some holes club selection is important off the tee as it is possible to hit the ball too far and get into danger; the short par 4 third hole is a good example of this were a big driver (or even 3w) could easily find the fairway pond.

Unlike some of the other courses in the valley, Boise Ranch does not have a lot (if any) holes in which local knowledge is going to help much. There really aren't a lot of hidden shortcuts etc. as this course lays out pretty much the way it looks from the tee's. While there isn't a lot of elevation change on this course, there is a little and it is at least diverse; with a couple uphill par 3's and a nice elevated tee into a par 4.

The course has very few bunkers and some of them are more designed to stop errant (long) shots than to really challenge your approach to the greens. There also aren't very many trees that will cause you much trouble either; however, as mentioned above there is a decent amount of water to protect from scores getting too low. Most of it is avoidable if you properly manage the course, however.

Pace of play has been great everytime I have played at Boise Ranch and since one of my favorite lunch spots is down the street, it's one of my favorite places to get in an early morning round.

Great course for the money

They have a punch card pass that makes it super affordable but even at full cost it is a great course for the money.
