Ha ha, they paved a road around the reservation a few years back. I do remember having to travel that dirt road to get to Rio Verde back in the day.
Now it's an easy shot from Fountain Hills up to Rio/Tonto Verde. This is the route I use to Vista Verde from the East Valley.

Legend Trail is not bad. A few odd holes and a real estate routing but generous in width for a desert style course and reasonably priced for the area.
Troon N and the Boulders will be pretty expensive.
I've not played it, but Dove Valley (RTJ II) is in the area. Also there is Tatum Ranch (Bob Cupp) a private course that is accepting public play. Don't remember much about that course as I only played it once when it first opened back in the 80's.
I would not recommend Rancho Manana.
Why not Rancho? I'm in Cave Creek 3-4 times a year visiting in laws and typically play it. Always seems in good shape (except when part of it got washed out in a monsoon) and has nice views. A little short but makes for a good warm-up round before playing Troon, Boulders, etc and typically well priced (not too hard to talk them into the resident rate).
Dove Valley is a pretty basic track but reasonably priced and last year when I played it it was in great shape (I avoided it for few years because I felt that the conditioning had gone down hill and it was slow). Seems like they may have fixed those issues.

I personally dislike Tatum Ranch's layout and holes.
