Quick links:


Basketball Courts
Our basketball courts are located at the Indigo Sky Recreation Area at 401 E. Johnson Ranch Blvd. Park hours are 6:00 am-9:00 pm.


Catch and Release Pond
Our one-acre catch and release pond is located at the south end of the Greens Park between the Association's on-site office (at 1475 E. Bella Vista) and the Stardust Recreation Area (1554 E. Omega). Johnson Ranch restocks the pond in the early spring of each year.
Directions: Traveling east on Bella Vista, turn right on Gray Fox Way, turn right on Silversmith Trail, then turn left on Desert Honeysuckle. Park at the volleyball court and follow the path around the backside of the court.


Disc Golf
You'll find Johnson Ranch's disc golf course at our Stardust Pool Recreation Area (1554 E. Omega Drive). This newly-renovated course includes nine new Disc Golf Association (DGA) baskets and concrete pads at each tee. Each hole has been installed with directional maps that lead you to the next hole.
This course is open to all Johnson Ranch homeowners on a first-come, first-serve basis.

San Tan Highlands Golf Course

30761 W Golf Club Dr. / San Tan Valley, AZ 85143
San Tan Highlands is a beautiful public course that winds through the community. It is a public course that the Association does not manage. The Johnson Ranch Community Association and San Tan Highlands have a partnership to better the community.
The course has a unique layout that features a front nine that is almost entirely different from the back nine. After a relatively flat and lengthy first nine holes, golfers will face a back nine that meanders through rolling hills, experiencing dramatic elevation changes along the way. The back nine also features spectacular views of the nearby San Tan Mountains and the Southeast Valley. The golf course features player-friendly fairways that are open with generous landing areas, but the large, undulating greens offer quite a challenge.
San Tan Highlands is also home to Maria's Kitchen, a full-service eatery serving classic American fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A 300-foot climate-controlled patio provides diners with a comfortable place to enjoy a distinct menu and take in the majestic views of the surrounding San Tan Mountains.
The Terrace is also perfect for special events such as weddings, parties, or corporate outings. The professional event planners at the Terrace specialize in turning your event into one you will remember for years to come.
The Golf Club at Johnson Ranch is about an all-around golf and dining experience and great value. For fees and rates, please call 480-987-9800.
