On this day the Wigwam had a HUGE tournament and handled it very well. There was nothing available on any of their courses until after 2 p.m. and they had things ready on time. It was pretty impressive. Plus they paired me up with a gentleman about my age so it was a nice round.

Nice course. Greens, bunkers and fairways were very nice. not very long and what you see is what you get. Next time I will play the Gold course as I hear that's the side to play if you want a challenge.

Very few other players on the course which was nice. Probably just the day and time. Fairways were great and every lie was super for the next shot. Wide fairways and large greens which was good for me. Nice choice of tee locations. Staff was friendly. Practice area was close and plenty of balls to use. Great practice green for putting. I will play Heritage again over Patriot. Haven't played Gold. Probably because it is a little out of my price range. Thanks for a fun day!

Whoever is selecting hole locations is not a golfer. I was a national (Canada) certified rules official and I would never have selected many of the hole locations that our group encountered on this course. I also had many unfair hole locations on the Patriot course. If you drop a ball next to the hole, the ball should not roll off the green.

Wigwam Resort should not be taking the fun out of golf by using terrible hole locations.

Facility layout is good. The proshop has lots of variety at reasonable price. Staff is friendly and helpful. The course layout is simple and playable with very few surprises for first time golfers. Condition of the course is 4/5 (bunkers need more sand). Overall an enjoyable experience.

The Heritage course is a fun layout with mature tree lined fairways. Some holes are easy with some challenging ones. The fairways were perfect but the greens werent consistent. Some greens were awesome and some bumpy. The sand traps need work like has been done on the gold and patriot courses. We waited on every shot and it felt like it took forever to play, but actually only took 4 hours. Back nine was much faster. Overall really nice course!!

I'd play here more often if I didn't have to cross thru downtown Phoenix traffic. So I time it out to avoid the crush or play on the weekends.

Course is always in good shape. The difficulty is reasonable. The fairways are generally generous. Greens are a good quick.

The other Wigwam courses are decent, but the Blue is short and tricked up. The Gold is long and tough.

Greens were not in great shape. Too fast for the layout. This is not a good course for anyone under a 12 handicap. I would say it's best suited for beginners to moderate players

The Wigwam has three courses....the Gold which is a ridiculously penal layout for anything but single digit handicappers....the Patriot which is just a poor layout....and the Heritage which is a fun, interesting design that is currently in about the best condition I've ever seen it. Twilight rates make it a great value. I have only one quibble: put some sand in the bunkers! Most bunkers have less than an inch of sand on a base of hard pan. That simply isn't fair and could be easily remedied.

The greens were in rough shape. Sparse grass and very firm. Pace of play was about 4 hours, but our foursome was constantly waiting for the foursome in front of us when no other foursome were anywhere within 3-4 holes of us. If there was a ranger maybe could've sped them up or suggested to let us play through.
