Details

Mirroring the southwestern styling of the petroglyph-etched boulders that mark each hole, the adjoining Club House with Pro Shop and snack bar offer a casual but elegant retreat. Unlike many of Arizona's "target" golf courses, Dove Valley Ranch is player friendly, with manicured transition areas that allow its guests to recover without penalty. RTJ Jr. also put a premium on strategy and variety, which translates into a challenging yet refreshing round of golf. Factor in service that is second to none, and no wonder this lush layout on the outskirts of Phoenix is so popular with locals and visitors alike.

GolfTroop Review

Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club was established back in 1998 and designed by the ingenious Robert Trent Jones Jr. Dove Valley Ranch is an elegant treat in the natural desert surroundings of Arizona. Lush foliage, petroglyph etched boulders that mark each hole, and naturally flowing fairways; this golf course is of great value just outside of Scottsdale. This track is a desert style golf course with tastes of old tradition play with contoured greens and historic attributes, all without disturbing the natural surroundings of Willow Wash. The front nine warms you up with an open selection of shots, so just play smart golf and you will be rewarded on your scorecard. The back 9 is where the course really buckles down and is a true test of a golfer. As it tightens up and plays into dense vegetation along the wash. Keep it in the fairways here as there are fairways lined with Ironwood and Acacia trees. The 18th hole named "Bird Bath", will bring a final challenge with water stretching along the entire right side of the hole. Although a very fair golf course, this well manicured and challenging course is a magnificent play for either the veteran golfer or weekend warrior!
