Robert Trent Jones II designed the golf course at Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club, creating a championship course to shift gently from open play to intimate foliage along Willow Wash. The golf delivers Southwestern authenticity, with etroglyph-etched boulders marking holes. It differs from the "target" golf courses of Arizona in that it features player-friendly golf, manicuring transition spaces so that golfers face minimal penalty when recovering.

At the Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club, Robert Trent Jones II demands strategic and varied shooting, meaning the round of golf will challenge as well as refresh golfers.

After the round at the Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club, head back to the casual elegance of the clubhouse.

The was lots of noise from all the traffic around the course. Also there were kids fishing in the water which is very dangerous on the course. The greens were full of ball marks especially on the par 3 holes

Awesome!

I made sure I got all impressions from my friends ...and everyone was really impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of all the staff (starters, marshals, bar personnel, etc. everyone was really nice), some golf courses don't even care about service anymore, but not you guys.
You really know how to excel and create a great customer experience, kudos to you and your success Managing the Dove Valley Ranch GC crew.

Too slow- waited 30 minutes at 10 as group ahead stopped after 9 and no marshal. We walked- no drinking water on course. Quirky target golf on some holes.

Great shape

The course is in great condition, over-seeding was really good. I think next week you’ll be able to go off cart path. Will play again.

Cart Paths Only

I gave Dove Valley Golf Course a 5-Star rating overall, however my only major complaint is that they have a “cart paths only” policy currently in place. This made our round take far longer than necessary and I honestly do not plan on going back until I am advised of a change. That being said, I loved the course and it is a top notch type of place to play.
