Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club, Cave Creek

3.7
#8 of 10 in Outdoors in Cave Creek
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.

  • Great layout. Played the course when I was on vacation and I don't regret my choice to play Dove Valley. Course was overseeded which made the greens slow but I understood the need for this. I do recommend you playing this course. Thank you Dove Valley for the good time
  • Wonderful course. Greens were great. Good pace of play. Would recommend you play here. Good value
  • This is my home course. We play here all the time! Course is typically is pretty good shape. Only issue is there is a lot of turnover in the staff, so nobody ever remembers who I am which brings down the level of service I should be getting by visiting 2-3x a week.
  • Beatiful golf course. Well maintained.
  • Awesome course. Great staff.
