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.

A great course. While only 6,000 yards from the tips, the fast greens and ample hazards make it challenging. The course conditions were superb. Lush fairways. Lush "green" rough.

Played the blue course which was in excellent shape. Probably the quickest greens i've seen in the valley, but fair! Challenging course, primarily due to elevated quick greens, but a lot of fun. Definitely be back. Staff all very friendly and helpful.

Championship tees play about 6K yds. Greens small, stiff, well hidden and very challenging. I especially enjoy how every square inch of this course is so lush and green. Played a midday, mid-week threesome and finished in three hours!

The Patriot or Blue course is a short par 70 great for shorter hitters. The fairways, greens and rough were very well maintained. The course layout is a bit different with lots of par 3s and par 5s.There are some tough water holes that require an accurate shot. Watch where you are going because there are some places the three courses overlap and you can get mixed up. The only maintenance issue was the driving range had no grass in the marked hitting area. I'll play this course again with my wife.

First time playing at the Wigwam. Staff was very friendly, course was in great shape. Bunkers filled with lots of soft white sand. Greens were smooth and fast, with challenging pin positions. Finished 18 in 3.5 hours.

My only two complaints are: the driving range was bare, hitting off dirt. The course is incredibly flat, without the well placed bunkers this course would be very boring.

The course fairways and greens were in fine shape. The par 3's were inviting and fair to play. Our round was a bit slow, but hey, I am retired and the afternoon was gorgeous. I certainly would play again soon.

Staff are very friendly. Course is short but challenging greens make up for lack of length. Old style course, very open so will have shots avails from offline hits. Great course for seniors who are losing length. A lot of fun

My buddies and I came to Phoenix a few days after Christmas, and the course was in outstanding shape. Of the three courses we played in three days, this Patriot Course at Wigwam was by far the best one. The greens rolled well, the staff and members were friendly, and the beverage cart lady was attentive and friendly.
