Time to Rediscover

Los Cab

Opened in 1979, Los Caballeros Golf Club in Wickenburg remains one of the icons of Arizona golf. Built back in the day of steel-shafted persimmon drivers, Los Cab was considered one of the longest courses in the State at just over 7000 yards. However, even today Los Caballeros will hold its own against the big hitters with demanding par 5’s, unique push up greens and distracting panoramic views. The genius in the design is not the length but rather that anyone one can play it. Five sets of tees, grass from tee box to putting green, and no forced carries means you can roll any shot or many shots, and still have a swing at the next one - very unusual compared to today’s modern courses. There is even more to Los Caballeros than meets the eye. Did you know you can stay right here at the historic Rancho de los Caballeros Inn, a dude ranch founded in 1948? Established as one

SEPTEMBER 2021

of the original dude ranches that earned Wickenburg the ‘Dude Ranch Capital of the World’, The Ranch was a long-time winter haven from anyone escaping the cold of winter to the north. With 79 rooms, 80 head of dude string horses and 20,000 acres for exploring, skeet shooting, pool, spa, hiking trails and tennis there is something for the whole family to do before meeting for the American Plan dinner in the evening. Or, perhaps the day ends with a cookout in the desert! Either way, the Ranch has been doing it for more than 70 years and knows how to do it right. Come to play or come to stay. Los Caballeros will get into your blood where just one experience is not enough.
