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.

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.

Wigwam Heritage course is a challenging layout with a couple long par 5s and a couple short par 5s for some birdie/eagle opportunitues. The par 4s are generally very good holes if youbdrive it straight you will have good chances. The greens are a little skinny from the overseed this year but are mice if you like a firm challenging green.

If you want a tougher challenge try Wigwam Gold. If you are a beginner or novixe stay on the Patriot course.

We were able to upgrade our tee time due to cooler weather and the possibility of showers. The clubhouse people didn't charge us the greater price for moving us up either. That was appreciated as was the informative course marshall. The fairways on the course were in great shape. The front nine greens are spotty, but rolled pretty true. The back nine greens were better. Both rolled fast. The fairways were wide so it made it easier to stay in the lush green grass. Most holes are pretty straight forward, but #18 is a challenge. It is a quick left dogleg with water left and right. I used a 3 wood off the tee. We enjoyed our day on the course and look forward to the Wigwam courses, snacks (good hot dogs), and hospitality.

I play one of the three Wigwam courses at least once a month. I love the fact that I can go to one location and select from three different golf courses.

Course is challenge depends on your course selection. I love that. Great restaurant and great staff.

Heritage course has beautiful homes surrounding the entire course.
