With respect to the natural surrounding, Robert Trent Jones designed Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club to preserve the ancient beauty of the area. Located in the middle of a residential community, Dove Valley was purposely toned down in consideration to the residents near the golf course. It is indeed a golf trip experience for beginners which is uncommon for a Jones design.
Just as many have testified, Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club is a desert style golf club with hints of tradition. Its ample fairways and subtly contoured greens with openings in front feature a low, rolling mix of holes of varying difficulty – it has tough spots for those who crave for challenge. The layout is easy to play but also requires strategy to test the course-management skills of the players. Aside from its player-friendly course is its unsurpassed natural beauty. At every turn, brilliant greens with desert’s muted palette mesmerize the eyes of the viewers. A well-manicured course maintaining its traditional views, Dove Valley enhances the guests’ entire golf vacation through its friendly staff in the club house and pro shop.
Unlike Arizona’s typical “target” golf courses, Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club is player-friendly, with manicured transition areas that allow its guests to recover without any penalties. Jones has put a premium on strategy and variety, which translates into a challenging yet refreshing round of golf. This golf club gently shifts between panoramic openness to the intimacy of lush foliage along Willow Wash. A golf trip to Dove Valley will surely enhance the golfing skills of the beginners as well as give them the taste of classic.
