Good course, not too expensive, well maintained.

A somewhat difficult course - tight fairways, well-maintained. Prices are reasonable and not usually too crowded. GREAT landscaping and views.

What a delightful course to play. The first 10 holes are in the mountain and then you start playing down below. The course was immaculate and not a blade of grass out of place. The greens rolled true. What a great day we had. This is a must lay golf course when in the Phoenix area.

I have now had the pleasure of playing this course twice and believe it when I read that it is one of the most scenic courses in Arizona. From the outset I found the staff to be helpful, knowledgeable and very polite. The stater was able to give our group some excellent advice (which I often failed to head). Shortly... More

Great welcome from the check in staff. Decent rates. Course is tight so drive straight - greens in good nick. Front 9 more scenic (lots of big cactus) than back.

A scenic course in very good condition. The friendly and service oriented staff gave us good advice and the lunch at the Patio was great! Do not miss this opportunity when you are in the area, you will not regret!

Golf course located in Cave Creek. Easy to get to. Not a long course, 6000 yards and change from the tips. Course was in very good condition. Fairways and greens very good. Greens were slow at this time of the year. Course was open for carts, however, had rain the night before so it was cart path only. Course located... More

We were looking for a desert course, cactus, fairways amongst scratchy desert plants, etc the hotel recommended Rancho Manana. Rates were affordable and buggies allowed on the fairways, the elevation changes / distances mean it's not really feasible to walk. Pleasant welcome in the pro shop / starter was friendly and very informative. Went to the practice range only to... More

Be sure to take the time to enjoy the view as you make you're way through the challenging narrow fairways of this scenic course. Fantastic course for someone like me who hits 200-250 with my driver.

Played here on a Sunday in Oct. Fantastic golf course with amazing scenery from the top holes up in the mountain. A very good range of holes with some fairly challenging holes along the way . Amazing wildlife aswell . Starter was fun with his helpful hints and tips making us feel welcome. Just a pity about our first experience... More
