Tonto Verde Golf Club
Tonto Verde Golf Club is 36 hole golf facility located towards the northeast valley in the city of Rio Verde. Both courses are surrounded by mountains and abundance of desert vegetation. Both courses are known for their desert views and top course conditions.
The Peaks Course at Tonto Verde is the original course, nestled between the Verde River and McDowell Mountains. This course features narrow fairways that slope down toward rugged desert. There are quite a few forced carryovers and subtle elevation changes boasting amazing views of the city.
The Ranch Course at Tonto Verde is a more player friendly course that the Peaks; offering wider fairways and larger landing areas. The desert that surrounds is not quite as dense allowing more room for errant shots. Deep bunkers surround the course adding extra challenge.
