The Gold Course is one of three 18-hole courses offered at the Wigwam Resort, which was named one of Golf Magazine's "Silver Medal Resorts." Golf Digest cited the Gold Course as one of the best public courses in the state. Mature trees are present on all of the courses, as well as winding creeks that create water hazards, which come into play on several holes. There are also strategically placed sand bunkers present on the course. The rolling landscape of the course causes elevation changes that can affect shots. The Wigwam Resort facility also has a putting green and chipping area.

Almost Fall

"It's late September and I really should be back at school" but getting in a mid-week round on the Gold course took my mind off the daily grind, the pandemic and the political noise on all the media outlets...even sports talk.

The course was in super condition too bad the overseed looms. The heat in Phoenix has not yet subsided but was not factor during my late morning round. The grounds crew has this place in tip top shape- kudos to the super and his staff.

It was most tempting to get a quick lunch and play another round.

The Gold course provides a good test for all levels just choose your correct tees and have fun !

Not worth the money

Monday morning tee time took over 4 hrs to play 15 holes, absolutely ridiculous

1)Greens are as slow as putting in your front yard.

2)The ranger laughed at me when I asked if they had cold towels. (One and only time I seen a ranger hole #3)

3)the golf cart breaks hardly work

4) golf carts sound like they are going to fall apart.

5) The gps in the golf cart is the size of my iPhone.

I played this course once before but will never be back to play again

Slowest play ever

At on point there were 5 groups on one hole. No ranger in sight. I will NEVER play here again. Worst day of golf in memory. We quit after 9 holes !

Don’t book here

Booked 2 tee times through golf now, show up at the course just to find out they booked another tee time in the same slot and now we’re told one of our groups has to wait an hour or more to tee off. Mind you we booked early to avoid the heat. Our tee time was booked before the other group and we still get screwed. Horrible service

Steve

Great day playing a fairly busy course. For a record setting hot day I was surprised by the crowds. Until we started playing and discovered a course in good condition and fun to play.

Honestly best policy.

I’ve heard that the Gold Course is the flag ship course for Wigwam.
We called before we booked, we asked how the course was and was told it’s the best shape it’s ever been.
I’m sorry but now I understand why no one else was out there, I understand that courses have to punch and sand the course but saying the course is in the best shape was a complete fabrication of the truth.
Fairways not to bad but the greens were awful, sand, patches everywhere, around the greens was literally mud and holes. I can imagine when this course is fixed it would be perfect but not right now, no way, please try and be honest for future.
