Pulling into the entrance to the Golf Course is the bag drop. Definitely Drop! The distance from your car to the carts is too far to carry. The attendant at bag drop offered to take the bag out of the car and they did. Finding parking was not a problem at all. It is a decent distance from the carts... More

This is another great area course to play. The staff were all polite and courteous. The course was in great shape and fun to play. The front 9 was more open and the back 9 demanded more target Golf but both were more than fair. The greens were fast and rolled quite true. Overall I would play here again anytime.

We were a foursome on golf holiday from west coast of Florida. We were looking for a course near Scottsdale that was not restricted to cart path and found several out north towards Cave Creek. Selected Dove Creek based on price and concierge recommendation and glad we did. Cart staff very helpful and nice lunch in Copper Grill before tee... More

I live locally and while I play here it is not at the top of the list. The greens have been rock hard and virtually unplayable for a couple years. The back nine has several blind and monotonous holes. On a positive note, I use the driving range often and appreciate that they have newer range balls than other local... More

What a beautiful course! After a season of trouble, this course is well kept, scenic and fun to play. The remodeled clubhouse and Bar/Grill is classy, comfortable and the food is great!

The front and back nines are very different. The front nine is fairly straight forward, the back nine becomes tricky with risk reward choices on several tee shots - usually not worth the risk so you can wind up hitting irons off the tee on a par five and several par 4s. The first few holes are a lot of... More

My wife and I played the course and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We live in Arizona full time and we understand that with the excessive heat we have been having that keeping everything green and alive is a challenge. The course is a fun, relatively easy track with wide fairways. We thought the greens were very good also. The staff was... More

I should have listened to previous reviewers. This course is in need of some serious help. For starters, you don't charge for range balls if someone is paying for a round of golf. That's petty, just give them the small bag to hit. Next, spend some money and water the course. They talk about how they had to redo all... More

After the accidental loss of their greens in 2015 the club was saddled with justifiable poor reviews. Happily, new owners have more than fixed the problems. New greens, new management and the nicest staff we have met make this club a keeper. Of the eight different courses played during our stay Dove was the favorite. A combination of a friendly... More
