First time playing at the Wigwam. Staff was very friendly, course was in great shape. Bunkers filled with lots of soft white sand. Greens were smooth and fast, with challenging pin positions. Finished 18 in 3.5 hours.

My only two complaints are: the driving range was bare, hitting off dirt. The course is incredibly flat, without the well placed bunkers this course would be very boring.

The course fairways and greens were in fine shape. The par 3's were inviting and fair to play. Our round was a bit slow, but hey, I am retired and the afternoon was gorgeous. I certainly would play again soon.

First time playing the Wigwam Blue course. Meticulously kept up, beautifully manicured fairways, strategically placed sand traps with soft white sand, and elevated greens that are as challenging as you’ll ever play (Personal compact Stimp Meter read as high as 13.3on several greens......it was a head shaking experience to watch “touch putts” travel 6-8 feet....but that was the challenge. The back nine was short (as advertised) but several of those ho.es were a delight to play, especially #15, the 98 yard Island. Wigwam Blue was a fun course to play and if you choose to try it, I am pretty sure that you will agree.

I was late due to my first time locating the golf course.

I was extremely accommodated and joined up with a group of friendly golfers from Denver. I would definitely play at Wig Wam again, maybe the Gold or Heritage for a change.

Put as many people as they could on course. Asked to play gold because no one on it and was told no. Groups out in front really slow. Played 12 holes in 5 hours. No marshall on course. Usually better but was the slowest round of year.

Wigwam's amenities are excellent. Playing in early December is a transition time for the course conditions and the course was in good condition although there is some inconsistency in lies. Overall, it is a very nice track-greens are smallish and raised so difficult. We played on a Hot Deal so the value was super!!

Wigwam has a lot going for it - it's spacious, and it was lush even in the midst of a months-long drought. But the courses are old-school parkland tracks that just don't too much for the eye. They're flat and open, and Patriot may be particularly so. A few of the greens are somewhat elevated, but there's very little that's memorable about any hole apart for the short island hole, No. 15. It may be the flattest course I've played in the valley, and that's saying something. Good golfers would eat this course up. It's easy to leave the driver in the bag on several of the shorter par 4s.

That said, Wigwam has a friendly staff and excellent lunch opportunities. And it was unusually empty on the cusp of Thanksgiving, which may bode well for tee times throughout the year.

Had not played Patriot in over a year and was very pleased with the overall condition of the course. Greens were great and bunkers have been redone. The course is short but still demanding as greens are on the small side. Based on this experience, will be back.
