Rancho Manana Golf Resort
The Rancho Manana Golf Club is where Mother Nature plays. Located in the heart of the Sonoran Desert in historic Cave Creek, Arizona, this course features a par 70, championship course with dramatic elevation changes and unspoiled desert terrain. It invites you to match your skills against nature while enjoying the spactacular and unforgettable surrounding desert views of Black Mountain, Skull Mesa, Elephant Butte and the nearby Tonto National Forest. Elevated holes present panoramic views of all of this in tranquil, peacefulness and provide a magnificent backdrop in every direction.
Although just 6,004 yards from the back tees, the length for longer hitters is substituted by placing a premium on accuracy – off the tee as well as on approach shots. This form of distance and shot-making makes the course enticing for all levels of golfers. The length of the course doesn’t mean you should leave your driver at home, just know when to play conservatively and when to let it rip. Tight fairways, thick desert terrain, elevated greens and water on a group of holes provide enough incentive to play smart off the tee.
Besides, the undulating greens are tricky enough to hit out of the fairway — let alone a desert bush on the rocky native floor. Many of the putting surfaces are surrounded by steep, rolling banks that can dump shots hit just off-center, rolling through the grass, rocks and desert. This hidden jewel is another example of the exquisite beauty that is Arizona and should not be missed on your next vacation.This par 71 gem features dramatic elevation changes, unspoiled desert terrain, abundant wildlife and beautiful bent grass greens. While Rancho Mañana Golf Club poses a significant challenge for low handicappers, it also attracts and is well known for its fairness and playability by high handicappers, as well.
Beginning with Rancho Mañana’s first hole, the front nine takes golfers through the Town of Cave Creeks name sake, Cave Creek Wash, one of the last remaining riparian areas in the state. From there, each subsequent hole ventures upward, to higher elevations, where one can witness some of the states most breathtaking views. No where else in Valley of the Sun can a golfer simultaneously view picturesque images of Camelback Mountain, Mummy Mountain, Squaw Peak, Black Mountain, South Mountain, and the dramatic Tonto National Forest, with its distinctive Elephant Butte. From the heights of splendor, golfers experience an ongoing, truly unique experience with a pair of par 3’s that forces one to gaze over the dramatic decline in elevation as golfers meander back towards the site of a once thriving, real western dude ranch, now the existing clubhouse and restaurant facilities, with their original, rustic structures.
From there, Rancho Manana’s back nine allows one to encounter a slightly different experience, as golfers work their way around a lush oasis of water-guarded holes that emerges, once again, from along side Cave Creek, where Mother Natures flourishing, vast array of wildlife can be found, including the likes of bobcats, roadrunners, mule deer, rabbits and eagles. As golfers near the end, they will be treated to the courses two most challenging par fives, giving one the immediate desire to make the turn again.
