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.

We teed off just before 4. Got 16 in and pace was great. Ran into a slow group when we got to 17. The course was in great shape. If i had to say anything bad about it, the fairways could have been cut a tad shorter but really nothing to complain about. I would definitely come back here at play the other courses next time i'm in AZ.

the gold course will test your game as it's well over 7000 yards. The layout is very wide open so balls tend to fly from other holes into you - slight knock on the layout. Some large trees can really come into play if you hit the wrong side of fairways. Greens and pin locations provided ample challenge. A couple of bunkers lacked sand but think that was a raking issue.

Only downside was carts on path only. So the round was slow. It was not that wet out there. We could have played 90 degree. Anyway, great course and condition.

We played the Gold course. The fairways are in great condition, the greens not so much. Our biggest complaint is the closeness of holes going in every direction and you constantly hear "FORE" as you are on your downswing. There are too many golfers crisscrossing since they have 3 courses in this location. You had to pay attention where your next tee box is as signs / directions are not exactly abundant. Maintenance crew were also busy doing their work without regard of approaching golfers or golfers who are putting, and I am talking midday, not early morning time. Another big turnoff was that the crew were cutting trees in the middle of the day, when the course was at its busiest.

Overall, the green fees are too expensive for what you get. There are too many golf courses in the area that are way nicer, same difficulty, more classy, friendly and definitely more reasonably priced than Wigwam!!

Played around 10am on a friday at the Gold Course. First time playing. The course is well maintained and the grass was so green. The rough on the course is not very thick and easy to navigate. There are some well placed bunkers all over the course that make it interesting. One issue with the bunkers, there was very little to no sand in a green side bunker which caused my club to completely bottom out and duff a ball. It appeared to be only the one bunker because later in the round I was in another bunker or two and the sand was perfect. Another knock on the course was the price. Even though the range balls were included, I would have at least expected to have a range finder in the golf cart for what we paid. Greens were quick and you need to be precise where you miss on this course. If you leave it in the wrong area off the green, you could be in for some very difficult shots. Since it is a Parkland course, you can get away with some errors off the tee box as compared to the desert courses. Overall a nice course. Unfortunately this is west of Phoenix so you don't get the views of other courses.
