The Red Course (formerly known as Heritage Course) at the Wigwam Resort, which has received acclaim from Golf Magazine, is one of three 18-hole courses at the resort. Built on rolling terrain, the course features elevation changes that can affect shots. Mature trees are also scattered throughout to add beauty and another challenging element. Winding creeks form water hazards that come into play on a few holes. The Red Course is popular among locals familiar with the Wigwam Resort because it is considered to have the three best finishing holes in the area. Although walking is allowed on the other two courses, carts are required on the Red Course.

We were in town from Maine, for the Waste Management Open. We were excited to play here and made our tee times well in advance. When we arrived we were met at the bag drop and our clubs were put on the cart. the price originally quoted was $23.00 less than what was paid on this day. We were excited to see the course from the clubhouse. We then followed the red line for maybe a mile to the course (there are three). When we arrived we were met by a nice guy who was the starter. We asked how the course was and what tees he recommended. His response was, "it's the old course". Needless to say it was awful. The course was in worse shape than a municipal course here in Maine that has three feet of snow on it all winter. Didn't even compare to Palm Valley which is in the same area and cost less. Felt a little slighted.

We've played this course many times from November through May. It's a great course. It's an old course, so it's very long for a woman as the forward tees seemed to be an after-thought as was the case when the course was designed. But, it's the best course in the area. True bounces, strategic landing zones -- all the good stuff. And, catching a cocktail outside at Red's after a round is just terrific. Love it here.

The course was wonderful, in great shape. The greens were extremely fast for us, but we got used to them. The temperature was 75, you’re on a golf course with no one behind you. How do you beat that. For the money it’s hard to beat.

From tee box to greens the course was in great conditions, except........... Bunkers. Bunkers were terrible. No sand at all, hard packed dirt. If you land in one of these traps make sure the players you are playing with are out of the way of the ball path. Greens were fast, fairways were cut short and the "rough"..... was as short as the fairway. Few of the holes had geese/duck/some type of water fowl exttrament littering the fairways. Overall it was a fun course and I might wait to play it again when Conditions are more optimal.

We were disappointed in the way the overseeding came in on the Red course fairways. There were many bare/dirt areas and where in did come in the grass was sparse at best. The traps also needed more sand.

The greens were very fast and true, however. This 18 at the Wigwam has always been the poor sister of the 3 18's.

This Red course at Wigwam was my first booking with golf now. Booked a week or so ahead of time and paid $49 (from $99).. One I got to the resort and learned how to use the app to my advantage I got tee times at the Gold course ( a much more challenging and longer course) for $35.

The course was in good overall condition with carts allowed . It was flat with not much character but still challenging enough to make it interesting and fun.

Cant wait to take full advantage of the app in the future.

Bag drop off, Pro shop, practice facilities, cart girl and tee to green can't ask for too much more. All in great shape and everyone has a great attitude. Played the Heritage and suggest putting out a bucket of water to wet your towel by the snack bar. This would preclude having to use the bathroom sink, where the started told me use.

The day was perfect ,weather wise finally, to play some golf. We were a bit intrigued on why the rough was so much greener and lush than the fairways which were a bit inconsistent. The greens were in great shape, extremely fast which we like. Overall the Wigwam is always a great value. The staff is friendly, a nice range with free balls. Pace of play is always good. I will return.

One staff member on the phone and two others behind the counter. Nobody would make eye contact to say just a minute I'll be right with you. When they finally checked us in they offered no information on where the range was to warm up or much of anything else. To be fair I have been there at other times when the staff served me promptly and was friendly and did offer information on all the on-course amenities.

This was a hot deal and I also was able to use some points, which may have contributed to the staff attitude
