The Wigwam Resort possesses three 18-hole courses, the Blue Course, the Red Course, and the Gold Course. All three courses were built on a rolling terrain with mature creeks sprinkled throughout and meandering creeks running through, which can all affect shots. The Blue Course is the shortest of the three courses but Blue plays long due to the elevated greens. The creeks create water hazards that come into play on several holes and there are also many strategically placed sand bunkers throughout the course as well. The Wigwam Resort facility has various practice facilities including a chipping area and putting green.

Course was eaten up. Nothing but dirt on fairways and around greens. Pace of play was slow. Would never have played there had I know conditions. Course should close till everything is grown back.

The fairways and around the greens were mostly DIRT! On every hole. Pace of play was very slow. Waited awhile on every hole.. Very very frustrating. Called it a day after 12. Pro shop did not mention the condition of the course, however, I was told Advisor rates the course. Did not expect these conditions. Paid $63 for the 2 of us and it was far from worth it.

Suggest Advisor take another look as the conditions are more minus 5 stars. It was rated 4 stars on Golf Now and Advisor.

Definitely not worthy of 4 stars. Totally disappointed. Will tell my friends/family to stay away from this course.

Played this course on a hot June Monday. I was the only one on the course, so pace was not a problem. All course representives were very friendly and helpful. Course was interesting and fun, and in very good condition considering the current heat wave. For the GolfNow price, it couldn’t be beat. Highly recommended!

Mostly wide fairways, and not a very difficult course. Challenging enough to keep it interesting, however. Greens were in good shape and also interesting design. Staff was quite helpful and attentive. All around, a very enjoyable round.

Although the course was in transition from winter grass to summer it was still in good shape. Played the Blue Course on Friday and the Gold Course on Saturday. All Staff we encountered were excellent. From staff taking care of clubs, to inside the pro shop or outside service and beverage cart, all employees were helpful, courteous and friendly. The Wigwam either hires correctly or has a good training program.

Very good course. One important problem: some fairways are very close and some tee off are very close to some greens creating a hazard. Most staff are friendly. The snack place is poorly located on the course.

First time playing this course. Grass was in good shape throughout; tee boxes, fairways, rough, and greens. Course is very flat. Fairways are wide and forgiving. Most holes have elevated greens so if you a little off target, your ball may roll off. There is some water and the 15th is an island green. Pace of play was decent. There are three courses at Wigwam and they seem to intertwine so the next hole is not always obvious, but the signage is good so if you pay attention, you should be fine.
