---------- Attention Golfers ------------
Ingeniously designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones II, this championship course gently shifts between panoramic openness to the intimacy of lush foliage along Willow Wash. 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.

Latest updates on Course Conditions
While the fairways and roughs have improved tremendously, the putting surfaces continue to be difficult to get back to smooth, lush surfaces. Here are pictures of 9 green, 18 green, and 10 tee taken on April 8, 2015.

While the grass in the fairways and roughs has started to wake up thanks to this great weather we are having, the greens remain dormant and very speedy. We are still offering very discounted rates for this time of year but please take a peak at these pictures or call the golf shop to get an up to date description of what the course is like to play. Again, we hope, weather permitting that the bermuda grass will wake up soon and the conditions of the course will vastly improve.

The golf course was overseeded and came in beautifully. Unfortunately, we encountered an incident during the grow-in period which eliminated the winter rye for the season. The course is now dormant Bermuda with green dye to outline the fairways. The greens are quick and the fairways have tight lies much like a European links style course. We have made adjustments to daily green fees and are working on a dynamic price structure. Please visit our bookings page for our best golf prices. As the Bermuda wakes up in the Spring, we will keep you updated with pictures and then return to our normal pricing structure.
