Course Landmarks and Features

Recently listed by Golf Digest as "One of the Top 50 Courses in the Country for Women," and ranked in the "Top 10 Golf Courses" in Arizona by Ranking Arizona, the Scottsdale area par-70, championship layout features dramatic elevation changes, unspoiled desert terrain, abundant wildlife and the rustic charm of the historic dude ranch, which is now part of the golf resort property. While Rancho Mañana Golf Club poses a significant challenge for low handicappers, it also attracts and is well known for its fairness and playability for golfers of all levels. It is definitely one of Arizona's best golf courses that truly represents the uniqueness of desert golf.

The front nine takes golfers through the Town of Cave Creek’s namesake, Cave Creek Wash, one of the last remaining riparian areas in the state.  From the first fairway, each subsequent hole ventures upward, to higher elevations, where one can witness some of the states most breathtaking views.  Nowhere else can a golfer simultaneously view picturesque images of Camelback Mountain, Mummy Mountain, Squaw Peak, Black Mountain, South Mountain, and the dramatic Tonto National Forest, with its distinctive Elephant Butte.

With holes 7 and 9, golfers experience a truly unique experience with a pair of par 3’s that forces one to gaze over the dramatic drop in elevation and tingling views. Golfers then begin to meander back towards the site of a once thriving, real western dude ranch - now the existing clubhouse and restaurant facilities, with their original, rustic structures.  From there, Rancho Mañana’s back nine allows one to encounter a slightly different experience, as golfers work their way around a lush oasis of water-guarded holes with 360 degrees of unobstructed mountain views, where Mother Nature’s flourishing, vast array of wildlife can be found, including the likes of bobcats, roadrunners, rabbits and mule deer.
