Rated “Best Executive Golf Course” by the Arizona Republic, “Host Course of the Year” by the Arizona Women’s Golf Association and home to the East Valley Short Course Championship, Augusta Ranch Golf Club does not rest on its laurels.
Located in Mesa, Augusta Ranch is an 18-hole 3,788-yard, par 61 course. Its friendly accommodating staff, superior playing conditions, and challenging layout allow players of all abilities to get out and enjoy the game of golf, the way it is meant to be enjoyed. Unlike some of the ”Desert” golf courses located in the Valley, Augusta Ranch is a traditional design that will keep your smiles up and your blood pressure down. Yet it does offer the challenge of seven par 4’s in the 300 yard range for those who want to work with their “big sticks”.
While Augusta Ranch Golf Club is the ideal facility for players new to the game, golfers looking to lower their scores will find Augusta Ranch to be a great place to fine tune their short game. In an era of limited free time, one can play 18 holes of golf in less than three hours. Another benefit, this course permits walking.
