“Great Golf Course and Restaurant”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We have golfed three times in the last month at Tatum Ranch Golf Club and have enjoyed it each time. The course is quite forgiving but with some challenging holes. The views are really great and the staff is very nice. They also have a nice restaurant we recommend you visit for a cold beer and great food! Try the BBQ Pork Sandwich - you won't be dissappointed.

“Average golf experience”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

We joined Tatum Ranch on a summer golf membership. The course is basic. Nothing interesting, just basic golf. The course was in fair condition. Greens took 4-6 wks to recover from punching, but rolled nicely after. Clubhouse is plain but the food and drinks were very good. The downfall to this place was its regular members. No one went out of their way to be friendly and actually heard negative comments about 'those summer members.' Newsflash... We kept your course alive for the summer. You should welcome us and buy us a drink! Maybe that would help fill out your membership!

“Don't be fooled by the "facelift" - this place was terrible”
Reviewed August 17, 2010

By far, the worst place I have golfed this year! Fairways were horrible - they said that they had some issues due to the heat, but every where else I have played this summer was excellent. They just don't want to spend money on the water, because they have issues with membership. The bunkers were all pebbles and rocks - no matter how many excuses you use for the fairways, there is no excuse for crappy bunkers. Here is a great one - you join a private club, then notice that on multiple holes, there are power lines right overhead - big suckers that you can actually FEEL buzzing.
The Design is terrible and random, the members were snobby and cold, and the pro shop had the nuts to say that we needed to tuck in our shirts - that is a move for a real private club; this place was honestly worse than the worst municipal I have ever played.
The faciities were nice inside, but the range and chipping area were OK at best.
If I was a member, I would be super pissed - this is a craphole!

“A new look/ A great private club value”
Reviewed November 8, 2002

Tatum Ranch is now a completely private golf club as of 11/01. There has been a complete facelift including a multi million dollar club house, restaurant, locker rooms, pool, pro shop, snack bar, etc. addition. The course has also received numerous upgrades and the condition is exceptional.

This is a challenging, but enjoyable layout where a golfer can enjoy playing each week. The course rewards accuracy, but you can still make some gains with long drives on certain holes.

I have been a member since 2000 and the club has really come a long way. This is the best value in the valley with junior executive memberships starting at 12K and full memberships around 25 to 30K.
