The Duke at Rancho El Dorado is a championship, 18-hole golf facility designed by David Druzinsky. This desert links style course offer generous fairways and a scenic view of the natural desert sage and brush surrounding. The difficulty lies in the slope of putting green so golfers beware.

The Duke at Rancho El Dorado is a par-72 golf course that measures 7,011 yards from the back tees.

After a round on the Duke at Rancho El Dorado, head to Silver Spur Grill for breakfast, lunch or dinner on the patio, which offers vistas of the Estrella Mountains as well as that 18th hole you just wrapped up on.

The course was very forgiving with wide fairways, a lot of sand traps with beautiful white sand on back 9 .

Course Good - Amenities Non-Existent

Course is good, long, and challenging. Restaurant was CLOSED. No beverage cart. Management needs to get their act together, although I suspect Mr. Gee doesn't want to pay for a competent chef. Too bad because this was one of the nicest gathering spots in Maricopa.

Need a Marshall

This is a very nice course and was in better shape than most around the area for April. Unfortunately it took 5 hrs to play a round due to a foursome holding up play 2 groups ahead of us. Nothing worse for golfers than having to wait on every tee-box. In fact there was one hole with five groups, three of which were waiting For that reason alone, I cannot recommend this course to others. Fortunately it was not an extremely hot day we played so it was tolerable.
