The pandemic has been a difficult time for so many people for so many different reasons. One of the hardest things for many was not being able to see their families. I know that was extremely difficult for me and my wife, being on the West Coast and separated from our loved ones on the East Coast, while holidays, birthdays and other milestones passed without those large family gatherings we all looked forward to. As soon as it felt safe to do so, we flew across the country to see family and made up for lost time … and there was nothing like being reunited.
And that’s why I’m excited to partner with Rancho de los Caballeros Ranch & Golf Club to let you know about their 75th Anniversary Ultimate Family Reunion at the Ranch Contest. The incredible prize package, valued at $67,500 USD is a showstopper and is the ultimate opportunity to reunite with family for a special experience no one will forget.
But before we get to all the contest rules and prize details, I think you’re going to want to check out the ranch first, learn about its history and see for yourself why it’s the perfect setting for a family reunion.
Rancho de los Caballeros Ranch & Golf Club
Founded in 1948, Rancho de los Caballeros is in Wickenburg, AZ, just 65 miles north of Phoenix. The family owned and operated ranch resort spans more than 18,000 acres across the High Sonoran Desert and offers guests a wide variety of things to see, do and explore on all that rambling land.
Rooms and Suites
Rancho de los Caballeros is home to 67 rooms and 12 suites, all decked out in Santa Fe style for a truly southwestern experience. You’ll enjoy views of the surrounding Arizona desert landscape and look forward to retreating to your room after a day filled with activities, like:
You can explore the desert on horseback – all skill levels are welcome and accommodated, with a variety of horseback riding programs like all-day trail rides, private horse-riding lessons and arena riding. You can try private and group riding lessons for riders of all ages. Plus, every day, there’s a daily horse run, where the herd runs along a trail to pasture and guests are invited to watch and photograph the majestic animals as they go by.
The Spa at Los Caballeros
After a long day exploring the desert, the Spa at Los Caballeros is the place to relax and rejuvenate. Guests can indulge in any number of classic services and signature treatments like the desert baths, scrubs and wraps. The spa is a true desert oasis.
Golf at Los Caballeros
The Los Caballeros Golf Club is a unique course where guests can play golf while also watching the horses take their daily run. This 18-hole golf course is surrounded by views of the Bradshaw Mountains and Vulture Peak. This picturesque course has five sets of tees, grass from tee box to green and no forced carries. Open year-round, this course is designed to appeal to players of all skill levels.
There are lots more things to do on the ranch so no matter your speed or style, there’s sure to be activities you’ll want to check out. Guests can take a hike with the ranch’s naturalist or hit the skeet and trap shooting range. You’ll definitely want to explore your natural surroundings but how you do it is up to you – by foot, by jeep, by ATV or by hot air balloon. As the sun makes its descent, guests can take a hayride to an outdoor cookout to close out the night.
Dining at Rancho de Los Caballeros
Besides the cookout, Rancho de los Caballeros offers up other dining experiences where guests can indulge in Southwestern hospitality. Enjoy meals in the main dining room, from the breakfast buffet to the gourmet dinner, complete with formal dress code. The Los Caballeros Club Grill dishes up all-American comfort food, which guests can enjoy indoors during the day or al fresco at dinner, with a view overlooking the beautiful golf course.
