Detailed description

Moreno Valley Ranch Golf Club is a Public, 27 hole golf course facility located in Moreno Valley, California. The facility has three (3) 9-hole golf courses, The Lake, Valley, and Mountain. These 9 hole courses can be combined in three different combinations of 18 hole golf. Each of the three nines has a distinct feel.

The course first opened for play in 1988. The course architect was Pete Dye.

The Mountain nine is the showpiece of the 3 Nines. The course offers some spectacular views and memorable holes. The layout winds through the hills and boulders. The signature hole is #7, a par-3 with an "island" green. No, the green isn't surrounded by water, the elevated green sits on a desert hillside surrounded by a rocky sandy desert. It's also the highest part of the course, allowing great views of the valley.

The Valley nine is relatively flat. Several greens are on the edge of a big pond with Dye's traditional railroad tie planking along the edges of the water. A small ravine crosses through the rest of the holes define the layout of the Valley Nine.

The Lake Nine is enjoyable. It's not obvious why this nine is named The Lake Nine. Yes, of the 3 Nines it's the closest to Lake Perris Reservoir, but you can't even see the Lake. In fact, water only comes into play on one hole.
