McDowell Mountain Ranch is a diverse, family oriented community with a wide range of amenities designed for an active lifestyle. At the heart of this award winning community is a five-acre park and community center with a swimming pool, spa, basketball court, tennis courts, a sand volleyball court and the very popular splash fountain. Miles of improved trails connect neighborhoods to each other and to the Scottsdale Public Library, Citizen Service Center, elementary/middle school and the recreation center.

In addition to these amenities, McDowell Mountain Ranch features its own public golf course. The Sanctuary Golf Course at McDowell Mountain Ranch was built on the western slope of Scottsdale's McDowell Mountains and adjacent to the nationally recognized Westworld equestrian center. Acclaimed golf course architect Randy Heckenkemper transformed the Bureau of Reclamation's storm water retention area into one of the premier Scottsdale golf courses, a 6,624-yard, par-71 layout that provides a haven for native plants and wildlife.

The Sanctuary is more than a stunning 18-hole daily-fee Scottsdale golf course. It was the first golf course in Arizona and the 17th course in the world, to attain the coveted Audubon Signature Status.

While friendly to the environment, the Sanctuary is an entertaining challenge that demands intelligent course management at every hole. In addition to establishing itself as one of the finest Scottsdale golf courses, the Sanctuary Golf Course also houses a stone and stucco clubhouse that serves as an inviting retreat featuring a host of amenities including a comfortably elegant dining room, a multi-use, outdoor covered pavilion and an impressive golf shop.
