Great Course

Wickenburg Ranch was a great course. My wife and I went today for the first time for my birthday. It was a nice challenging course with some great views from the tee boxes. Watch out for the bunkers though the sand in them is very hard I believe due to the amount of watering they have to do in order to keep the fairways so nice. I would definitely recommend it if you are out this way it’s worth the drive. Little on the pricey side for me but I can see why because it’s such a nice well kept course. Just book it you won’t be disappointed!

Gem of AX

This course has made lot of excellent changes including club house and restaurant. Lay out of the course is excellent and greens are soft but fast. Fairways are well maintained. Practice facility is top notch including short game area.

There are five par 5s and five Par 3s and few of them are challenging. Pace of play was good and starter was very friendly. Drink lady came few times during our round but was surprised in the bar menu didn’t have many choices for vegetarians.

Also, hole #2 is under construction and pro shop didn’t tell us about it. We were given 10% off of our green fee. Overall, the course is worth playing even though it is hour and half away from PHX/Scottsdale area.

Not So Hidden Gem

Wickenburg Ranch is a gem in a pantheon of courses in the valley that one must play to truly appreciate. The course is in immaculate condition from tee to green and the staff is the friendliest I’ve encountered at any course I’ve played in the area. A “must play” in my book.

A GEM

This place is just fantastic! Course is in great shape, with undulating fairways and greens that are very soft and receptive. Greens were rolling at about a 10.5, which is actually a bit too slow for me, but regardless, this place is a treat! I've heard that the availability here is temporary, as it will ultimately become a private club in the relatively near future, so play it while you can!!

Wickenburg Ranch

Excellent course! Absolutely beautiful!!! Course was in great shape and was fun to play. Staff was super friendly and very helpful since it was our first time playing it. Marshals keep the pace going but they are not breathing down your neck. They make sure everybody is having fun and enjoying the pace. Highly recommend this course, we will definitely come back!

We are from South Carolina and have been in
Scottsdale at a VRBO for six weeks. Have played golf 5X a week at different golf courses. Wicke burg is the best in the area. Worth the drive. We have never taken the time to write a review but couldn’t pass up the chance for others to know how great it is.
