Unless you are a very good golfer just enjoy the course and take your score and the chance to play a RTJ layout. Severe penalties for off line shots. Play it for the experience.

The course was in very good condition. The traps are strageticly placed and the elavated greens were very challenging.

I think it is a great challenging course considering some traps in the middle of the fairway within driving range.

Worth the drive from Scottsdale to the west. Coming from out of state, you will not be disappointed. I know it is over seeding time, but the superintendent takes pride in the condition of this course and it showed. Well done. Everyone at the resort was wonderful, helpful, and courteous. Great job!!! The restaurant, Reds, was a pleasant surprise, the food was excellent, 5 star. The service superb. This experience made me smile. Thanks to everyone at the resort.

No water coolers on course. Umm...Arizona....Desert?

Yardage markers are in the middle of the fairway. Kinda odd, oh and they are all off by 20-30 yrds!

No way to identify if flags are back, middle, or front locations.

All of the 3 courses at the Wigwam intertwine. Unfortunatly there are no signs guiding you to the next location.

Don't waste your $ here.

There are water fountains on the golf course and on Gold, they are available in 7 different locations. There are yardage markers in the middle of the fairway. They are also on the side of the fairway as you enter the fairway so that we have markings every 25 yards and the yardage is also done with a laser for accuracy. Flags are identified front middle or back by a corresponding pole at the 150 yard marker with either a red, white or blue cap to indicate front middle or back. On Par 3 holes this is located at the tee box. This information is also on the scorecard. You are correct on the need for more directional signage which is currently being addressed. We have two of the courses that intersect, not 3 and when playing Gold, its only in one location.

We were very pleased with the condition of the course and the speed of play. The greens were in good shape as were the fairways. It was a nice golf day followed by a visit to the clubhouse for lunch and a beer. The staff were VERY friendly, the GM was seen out on the course and in the clubhouse on several occasions and was very cordial and welcoming.. Definitely worth the drive out from Tempe.

I have played this course many times, but it was in rough condition that day. Pace of play was very slow. I have played all three of the courses before never encountered slow play or bad conditions like that day. I definitely will play there again since it was a one time occurrence.

Wigwam Gold: This was before they aerated the greens, but the course was not in good shape: fairways had many thin or dirt patches, and the greens were dirt bare in several places. Overall a very disappointing experience on what is usually a well-conditioned course.
