This course is very picturesque and dramatic. The greens and fairways were in great shape. This course is a target golf style of play. There are hidden holes and dramatic elevation changes on several holes. We also got to see several animals on the course. Rattlesnakes, Bobcat and Javalinas all showed up in our round. We would definitely play this... More

I love the views on this golf course but it just doesn't fit my game. I play horrible here but I keep going back to hopefully improve.

I totally loved this golf course. It is a bit tight and the configuration is unusual but it is very scenic. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the lunch at the turn (chicken breast burger) was one of the best I have had on a golf course. The greens tend to be small and slow, part of why I... More

If you want great views and a course that challenges your ball placement then you will enjoy. Not a long course at all, in fact, fairly short but you better keep the ball in the fairway. We saw deer, coyotes, Javelinas - all in one round!!! Love this place! And reasonably priced!

We played Rancho Manana for the first time during our golf trip to Scottsdale last year and it was a favorite so we played it again this year. The course had great views and was in great condition. The greens were in better shape than one of the other courses we played that was twice as expensive. Friendly staff and... More

One of our favorite courses to play in Arizona. Great views of the mountains. Nice elevations in the course. Nice challenging holes too. Not overly expensive either. Shop for deals online.

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.
