A Premier Arizona Golf Community
The Tonto Verde golf community offers you golf course living at its finest. With two distinctly different and challenging 18-hole championship golf courses, designed by Gary Panks and David Graham, our Arizona golf retirement community near Scottsdale, AZ is a desert gem with national recognition for its charm and playability. Both courses, the Peaks and the Ranch, are immaculately maintained and are known for being some of the finest greens in the valley.
The beauty of the courses begins with a magnificent setting and mountain views in every direction. Six tees with ten different tee combinations on each course provide options for golfers of all ages and handicaps. Yardage on the various tees range 3772 from the silver tees on the Peaks course to 7004 from the tips on the Ranch course. Both courses in our Arizona golf community have been carved from the desert, and have been designed to incorporate much of the natural, desert terrain creating a true, desert golf experience. Yet, the Peaks and Ranch courses are distinctly different and, the combination of the two, provide members and their guests with unending variety and interest. With the added benefit of being able to use your own golf cart on both courses with no trail fee, you will enjoy a world-class golf experience every time you play.
The Peaks Course takes its name from the signature Four Peaks Mountain that towers in the background to the east. The Peaks is shorter and narrower than the Ranch Course with tighter landing areas off the tee. It is challenging around the greens featuring smaller, undulating and fast greens. A combination of well-placed bunkers and desert areas create a wonderful yet friendly golf experience.
The Ranch Course provides a great contrast to the Peaks Course. The name was derived from the Box Bar Ranch, a working ranch that has been integral to the area since the early 1900s. It also features stunning mountain views at every turn. It features wider landing areas off the tee and larger greens with subtle breaks. Strategically placed bunkers, water and desert areas laced throughout the course can be a challenging event for the most experienced golfer, yet the Ranch Course is a very fun and playable course.
The Tonto Verde Golf Club provides excellent practice facilities for honing every part of your game. The expansive driving range was created with the ability to use both the north and south ends of the range and, with unlimited practice balls for members, there is plenty of room to "hit away." When working to sharpen your short game, our golf community offers a dedicated green surrounded by fringe grass and an excellent sand bunker. The Golf Club facilities also feature a very large putting green that will mirror the course greens.
