Great Views and Perfect for Short Hitters

Great scenery, so bring your camera! This is a perfect course for short hitters. I never used the driver over the 18-hole round. Staff was friendly and the pro shot has some... read more

Played here with my wife mid week and was surprised at the challenge it was. Had just played the blues at TPC in Scottsdale and this course being 600 yards less was tougher on me. Just hit them straight and you'll be fine. shot 94 at TPC but shot 100 here. Play move along well as we caught a group... More

Have been dining at Rancho Mañana for years, for lunch, dinner and special occasions such as Easter lunch. Always good.

Nice mixture of desert and mountains. Somewhat tight course but short hitters have many chances to get on in regulation. Seemed to be well managed.

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.
