An award-winning 27-hole private golf club, offers unparalleled golf on three distinctive, championship nine-hole courses: The Lakes, The Dunes and The Arroyo. Nestled in the heart of paradise, Gainey Ranch was once a historic Arabian horse ranch owned by Daniel C. Gainey. With panoramic views of the McDowell Mountains, the allure of the Sonora Desert and breathtaking blue skies, Gainey Ranch is more than just a golf club – it’s a home away from home.

Your round of golf includes a continental breakfast, boxed lunch, and (2) drink tickets. A shared golf cart is also included.
