Overview:

Wickenburg Ranch Golf Club is located in the community of Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch and is developed by Shea Homes. This community is located in Wickenburg, Arizona which is about 60 miles northwest of Phoenix, Arizona, and opened in February of 2015. What is very interesting about the course is that it was built in 2008, and for those 7 years before 2015 there was no public play at the course. What is great about the course is that there is 12 minute tee time intervals and only 72 rounds a day (18 foursomes). Wickenburg Ranch is doing this because they want to give off a “private” course feel. They do plan on going private in the next 2 – 3 years.

The Review

What is interesting about the course are the green fees. For example, golf was $64 today and for $15 more you could get a Travis Mathew hat and for an additional $25 more you could get a Travis Mathew golf shirt. So, $104 and tax gets you golf, a hat and shirt … great deal. Of course, the price goes up in the high season, but last winter I paid $130 for golf, a shirt and a pullover … an even better deal.Course: A tremendous layout of 6 par 3’s, 7 par 4’s and 5 par 5’s … a very unique design. I was amazed at that condition of the course because they start to overseed the course on Monday 10/17 and they will come out of overseed on Friday 11/11. The tee boxes were perfect … flat and very little divot damage. The fairways were in great shape and the rough was in good shape but not very penal. The greens are bentgrass, which is very rare in the desert, and will of course not be overseeded. Thus, when the course come out of overseed they will not be shaggy and slow. The greens ran at an 11 today and were in great shape. The only minor issue was that there was some divot damage on some of the greens. Why can people not fix their ball marks? Most of the greens are double tier and have very subtle breaks. You have to play the course a couple of times before you can really understand the greens.

Summary:

The golf course is building a permanent clubhouse and I was told that it will be completed in the 1st quarter of 2017. I was also told that they are trying very hard to have it ready by Super Bowl Sunday. The clubhouse sits right by the putting green and will overlook the 1st tee and the 18th green. This is a great course that will unfortunately go private when enough homes are built and golf memberships are sold. This should take about 2 or 3 years and until that happens I will definitely be making the trip to Wickenburg once or twice a year.
