Our foursome had a great golf experience on the Gold course. There is a good selection of tees to help even the challenges of this course. The pace of play was fine with the temp near 100F. The course is very well maintained, with fast greens, great practise and warmup area.

The golf course was challenging and in great shape. It is different from the average desert course. Lush fairways and is more like your typical country club layout. Overall I would definitely play this course again and try to play its other two courses in the future.

Our foursome followed a twosome and there was a slight wait on each of the first 7 holes. Evidently the Marshall asked them to speed up and all of a sudden they quickly were a hole ahead. The Marshall came by to let us know we were now behind this twosome. We explained we had been waiting until just now. He said, "you are now on the clock". I explained again that our group plays fast and we usually play in 3 1/2 or 3 3/4 hours at Corte Bella. He did not seem interested, was in fact a little rude. We teed off at 8:30 am, finished at noon which is 3 1/2 hours. Have never been put on the clock before, and obviously it was not necessary.

Course was in good shape, and the staff was very friendly.

The greens are raised, and the slope was challenging. It's a different look from most of the courses in the area, including the other two Wigwam courses.

Probably a little too much for a hacker like me, but the price is fair considering what you get. Would recommend to anyone.

Bring your A game. Long and unforgiving. Fairways generous but you better be sharp with your irons or be good with your sand wedge. Very difficult pin positions on back. Course conditions superb. A must play.

Great course. Played the orange tees. Surprise to see some tee boxes in the fairway Don't know if they are permanent or just there as temporary Greens rolled well. Tough to have shots hold on the greens. Would play again

Played the course for the first time in a couple years. Played from the back tees as a college golfer. Course is a great layout from backtees but also was a test for my dad from the upper tees. Course was in mint shape and greens were fairly quick. Only setback is the group ahead of us (pretty sure they were members) took their sweet time and didn't really care they had fallen way behind.

Course is in absolutely fantastic shape. Very challenging course for all skill levels with strategically placed bunkers and relatively tough pin locations. Only 2 complaints that almost ruined the round: the service from clubhouse and the availability of hole maps. Firstly, the clubhouse team could not have been any more rude. We arrived plenty early for our tee time but found it extremely difficult to locate the clubhouse due to a lack of signs and direction. The clubhouse attendant assumes that all players are 100% aware of course amenities and procedures, but for a first time player of the course, we were completely ignorant of where all things were. The course was not busy, but every question we had seemed to be a bother. Absolutely no hospitality. Secondly, the course lacks a description for each hole. With three courses intertwined, it gets very difficult to determine which hole you are playing and whether you are actually aiming for the correct fairway/green. Overall the course is in great condition, but lacks in user friendliness. This will not be on my list of courses to return to when I am in the area.
