History:

Los Caballeros is a 20,000 acre Historic Guest Ranch and Golf Club situated just outside Wickenburg, Arizona (the Dude Ranch Capitol of the World). During the 1930's Dallas Gant managed a guest ranch in Wickenburg. Two winter visitors to Wickenburg joined the Gants and created Rancho de los Caballeros which opened in 1947. The Gant family still owns the ranch.

Golf:

The ranch's 18-hole golf course has been rated one of the top 75 resort courses in the US. The par 72 championship course plays 7,025 yards and features strategic bunkering and rolling Bermuda fairways. The hilly back nine will put all of your clubs to work. There is also a putting green and driving range. Golf Club Website.

Children's Programming:

The Caballeros Kids Club has paid staff who look after 5 to 12 year olds as a group from 8 am to 1:30 pm and again from 6pm to 9am. There is no extra charge. The staff accompany children to all three meals, take the swimming, riding and hiking. If the child is under 8, they will ride in the corral.
