“Golfing with the chef”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

The Chef at Gainey Ranch is also a great golfer. If you're lucky, he'll be out and about (especially in the summer) and eagerly waiting to give you a private tour. He gave my sister and I a private tour of both courses and we fell in love. It's definitely a stop we try to make when we visit the desert together.

“3 9-holers. Only 1 worth playing.”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Ill be short. Lakes is lovely. water everywhere and some nice twists and turns. the other 2 were either closed or burned within an inch of their lives for re-seeding. people describe this as a test too..... not at all. short, all par 5s reachable with ease and not one challenging long par 4 etc. you will shoot under your hcap here.

“Excellent course despite the extreme heat!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Summer in Scottsdale...not the best time of year to golf, but if you can get out early enough it is a tremendous value. Gainey Ranch was in surprisingly good condition considering most courses close during this time of year. There are three nines, so we didn't experience the Dunes course, but the other two were spectacular layouts. Greens could have been better, but I expect when the weather cools off the course will be absolutely stunning. I ranked it only Very Good for that reason. If we get out there after the summer I have no doubt it will be worth the Excellent ranking!

“Expected more”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Staff is great. Summer rates are great. My course at home in Austin TX is far nicer. Not dessert course feel, like the TPC and fairways were a little ruff. Greens in nice shape
