Offering a one-of-a-kind lifestyle, Wickenburg Ranch is in a class by itself. The dramatic desert surroundings and first-class amenities invite you to come outside and play. Wickenburg Ranch is not a community planned around a golf course; it was designed to blend both environments naturally, making it a truly unique experience. From an award-winning golf course and 5-star social club, to hiking trails that twist through the pristine desert landscape, Wickenburg Ranch is a dream come true.
The 40,000-square foot Golf & Social Club sits on a peaceful courtyard surrounded by options to get a bite to eat or just relax and take in the atmosphere. The Wickenburg Ranch team works diligently in design and development to make sure residents are provided with indoor and outdoor amenities that cannot be matched. Life at Wickenburg Ranch is unlike any community out there.
Charlie’s Park, named after the iconic dog of ranch owner Merv Griffin, is the perfect place for residents to play catch with their 4-legged friend or just sit, relax, and talk about their “children” with fellow dog lovers. The spacious dog park features covered picnic areas, cactus and succulents garden, restroom facilities, dog wash station, playground for children, and plenty of room to roam and explore. If residents are looking for a longer walk, Charlie’s Park is conveniently located next to the hiking trails for easy access to the natural beauty surrounding Wickenburg Ranch.
Wickenburg Ranch offers two exceptional golf courses suited for golfers at any skill level to play. The 18-hole, par-71 Big Wick course is just under 4,500 yards at the forward tees to more than 7,000 yards from the championship tees. The artfully crafted design and beautiful Bentgrass greens of the course offers a superb golfing experience.
For a more casual game of golf, visit the 9-hole, par-3 Li’l Wick course. It’s a fun short course for the golf aficionado, the amateur, or the non-golfer. There’s music streamed throughout the course and five separate seating areas if some golfers prefer to watch rather than play. Golfers can also play under the beautiful stars at holes 6, 7, 8, 9 and the putting green as these areas are lit up at night. While at Li’l Wick, guests can grab a bite to eat or enjoy a drink at The Watering Hole.
Health & Wellness
There are a variety of health and wellness facilities at Wickenburg Ranch. Residents can create a challenging, yet fun and effective workout tailored to their needs at the gym Afturburn.

Wickenburg Ranch takes hiking to the next level with hard and soft pioneer trails, offering residents the opportunity to experience the beauty of Arizona without leaving the community. There are 13 miles of genuine hiking trails woven throughout the property that twist and turn through the pristine desert hills. Whether residents desire a light stroll or moderate incline, there’s pathways for hikers of every skill and age level.
Just outside the Wickenburg Ranch community is the popular Vulture Peak trail. Known for its breath-taking views and beautiful plant life, Vulture Peak is a moderate hike of about 7 miles round-trip. Although the trail is typically used for hiking, horseback riding is also permitted. Hikers have also discovered small caves and cool boulders along the way.
From the incredible golf course views and new-American Cuisine at Jake’s Spoon, to the fresh dishes and open-air lakeside setting at The Watering Hole, there are plenty of delicious restaurants to eat or enjoy a drink here at Wickenburg Ranch. For premium bourbons and others whiskeys as well as craft beers, carefully selected wines, and expertly poured cocktails, Wick’s Hideaway and Jake’s Sip have all the refreshing beverages residents desire.
Stargazing & Yoga
Set on a hill overlooking the Li’l Wick course is Solstice Park. This dual-purpose park allows residents to relax and partake in the best stargazing in Arizona at the Lunar Lounge. Featuring a private stargazing lounge and telescope with digital tracking system, this is the perfect place to explore the galaxies. Not far from the Lunar Lounge is the Yoga Lawn where residents practice total togetherness of body and mind.
