Dove Valley Ranch is an 850-acre master-planned community built around the Dove Valley Ranch public golf course. Because Dove Valley Ranch is located at the far northeast section of Phoenix, homes in this community receive Phoenix city services, but have Cave Creek postal system addresses. There are equestrian trails and multi-purpose paths all over the immediate area, including a 2-mile equestrian trail along the southern section of the community. Bordering the community to the west is the Cave Creek Wash corridor, where 15,000 acres have been preserved for perpetuity. Dove Valley Ranch is located less than 5 minutes away from the center of Cave Creek, an area known for its western ambience, eclectic shops and various dining options. There’s also a major retail area at the north end of the community at the intersection of Black Mountain Parkway and Carefree Highway with a Home Depot and a Fry’s grocery store.
Dove Valley Ranch has a variety of properties to choose from – there’s everything from smaller homes with luxury, updated finishes, to larger homes on larger lots. Villagio at Cave Creek townhomes are currently under construction, offering 5 floor plans ranging from approximately 1300-1800 square feet, with heated pools, spas, fitness center and barbeque areas.

Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club is a 7,011-yard, par 72 desert-style, yet target golf course. It is a Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design that opened in 1998. The varied tees provide challenge for the novice and expert golfer with slopes ranging from 114 to 128. While it is a desert track, there are ample fairways and contoured greens with openings in front.
The first hole is an easy warm-up, quickly transitioning to a very challenging second hole. The rest of the front nine roams through the desert with beautiful views of nearby mountains. The back nine tightens substantially with dense vegetation and narrower fairways.
For its play and majestic setting, Dove Valley is a course you’ll want to play again and again.
Dove Valley is predominantly a daily fee course; Semi-Private Memberships are available by application.
