Did you know a healthy lifestyle has as much to do with where you live as how? It’s true. And
Wickenburg Ranch, one of Arizona’s most popular and livable golf communities, may be all the
proof you need.
Here, everything from its high desert setting to the countless active amenities support your
desire for wellness, strength, and a far more enjoyable quality of life. Want specifics? Start with
these resident favorites:
- WARM, DRY CLIMATE
It’s no secret people have been coming to the Arizona desert for health and healing for almost
100 years. And the uniquely arid climate is the main reason. Wickenburg Ranch is about an hour
from Phoenix, Arizona, but it’s also almost 1000 feet higher in elevation. That means it can be
up to 7-10 degrees cooler than the Phoenix/Mesa/Scottsdale area on any given day, allowing
you to enjoy the great outdoors and stay active on all but the hottest days. Translation? At
Wickenburg, you get all the benefits of the climate, without its restrictions.
- A BREATH OF FRESH AIR
The air at Wickenburg Ranch isn’t just warm, it’s also clean—especially when you compare it to
nearby Phoenix. But given the differences in population density, this should come as no
surprise at all. Fortunately, the area’s better-than-average air quality means you won’t
experience the negative health effects of breathing deeply on our courts or courses. So, enjoy
as much active outdoor time as you like, free of red air quality days and smog. At Wickenburg,
the only things that will take your breath away are the views.
- WORLD-CLASS HEALTHCARE
A healthy lifestyle just isn’t possible without quality health care. Good thing this exceptional
golf community is surrounded by some of the top wellness facilities in the country. For
example, the world-famous Mayo Clinic Health has locations in nearby Phoenix and Scottsdale.
Wickenburg Community Hospital is only about 15 minutes from Wickenburg Ranch, making it
incredibly convenient for residents. Add an expert array of specialty clinics on every side and
you’ll never have to worry about having the access to care that you need, when you need it.
- WALKING AND HIKING TRAILS
Want to explore our desert scenery with more than just your eyes? Take a hike. Wickenburg
Ranch is crisscrossed with walking trails. Made up of over 20 miles of interconnecting paths, the
Pioneer Trails wind through each neighborhood, allowing you to take an invigorating walk from
the desert to your doorstep. But don’t stop there. Just ten miles from this golf resort
community is the picturesque town of Wickenburg, Arizona and a whole array of popular hiking
paths, including the Vulture Peak and Hassayampa River trails.
- FOUR RESTAURANTS TO CHOOSE HEALTHY OR DECADENT – ALWAYS DELICIOUS.
Wickenburg Ranch offers not one, but four exceptional restaurant experiences with the
community’s gates. Whether you are looking for a quick bite before hitting the golf course, a
refreshing poolside cocktail, a casual lunch over gorgeous views, or a sit down dinner with your
closest friends, the Wickenburg Ranch Culinary Team is ready to impress you with their
delicious and healthy food options.
- AFTURBURN & MOVEMENT STUDIO
Think you need to be a serious athlete to go to a serious gym? Wickenburg Ranch’s Afturburn &
Movement Studio is a state-of-the-art facility that was truly created for everyone, whether
you’re a fitness rookie or an elite athlete. A strength and conditioning gym, Afturburn features

- GOLF AT WICKENBURG RANCH
At the heart of a state famous for golf is a community that’s literally built around the sport.
Named #1 in the nation in 2021 by Golf Advisor, Big Wick is nothing short of an award-winning,
18-hole, championship masterpiece. And for those who could use a more relaxing round,
there’s Li’l Wick. This 9-hole course brings entertainment to the game with a dress code that’s
as relaxed and comfortable as the experience. Either way, you can’t go wrong with Wickenburg
Ranch or the golf courses at the center of it all.
- WICKENBURG RANCH’S RESORT POOL
Even in the relatively temperate climate of Wickenburg Ranch, there are hot days. That’s when
you can cool off at the Resort Pool, part of the community’s Golf & Social Club. Featuring
endless views of the desert and mountains that surround the community, it’s a great way to
unwind after a round of golf. Looking for a little low impact workout instead? The pool offers
that as well with several lap lanes. Cap it all off by relaxing with friends at poolside. It’s a
refreshing way to start or end any day at Wickenburg.
- WICKENBURG RANCH’S COURTS & SPORTS
At Wickenburg Ranch, golf isn’t the only game in town—even if it is at the top of many
resident’s lists. The community’s expansive Courts & Sports Complex is the perfect place to
round out your healthy lifestyle with a tennis, pickleball or bocce ball match. Just schedule a
time with friends, join one of the communities popular clubs, or sit back in the stadium-style
seating to watch some spirited competition. The active life has rarely been this much fun.
- THE ALVEA SPA
No active lifestyle would be complete without a little time to unwind. That’s where
Wickenburg’s Alvea Spa really shines. This fully equipped resort-style retreat offers everything
