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.

The course was in excellent condition and the greens were extremely fast and smooth. The greens have severe undulations and may not be fun for higher handicappers. Better players will love the challenge. From the back tees, the Gold course is a brute, but fair.

Very well manicured. The greens were way to fast. I had about an 8 foot uphill putt that I missed 4 times and the ball rolled right back to me. And it wasn't all that steep. The bunkers were a bit odd in that the sand was very fluffy for a 1/2 inch or so then solid. Not sure if it was the sand or me, but I had problems getting out.

The course layout was a bit boring. No hills. Nothing scenic.

I sound critical, but I liked the course. The fairways and 1st and 2nd cuts were very well manicured and I almost always had a perfect lie.

Great course, fairway and greens very good shape. The gold course very challenging, many greens surrounded by sand and water. I am from out of town and was pared with a couple and a single, had a great time lots of fun. Lots of support staff standing around, starter very helpful and accommodating. 02/09/2018.

Course was in very good condition, we played after Dreamcatchers tournament, the greens were lightning and the pins were in some tough spots. Very long course and it got windy in the afternoon, making it very tough. Lots of big trees to maneuver around and sand traps to contend with. I would play here again.

Course in very good condition. Greens were fast and very challenging. Pace of play was good.

The burgers we ate at the Red's Restaurant/Lounge at the club were absolutely awesome and deserve an extremely high rating.

Gold course is wide open, long as you want, with tough undulating greens. Well placed traps and fantastic conditions. Just about 4 hr round on Tuesday 9:00AM.

Downside - restaurant not open in the morning and after round waited 15 mins and no server came to the table so we left.

Played Xmas morning on the course. The course is in excellent shape from box to hole. Pace of play wasn't a issue since no one was playing at that time ,I walked 18 in 3 hours. The Gold is still CP only and it's a simple walk course is very flat. Fairways are firm and fast as are the greens. Please enjoy the Wigwam Gold and don't forget to fix your ball marks .....thanks

Since my grandson encouraged me to play from the blue tees I had to hit long drives. That didn’t work out so well. Also the Wigwam is a long drive from where I live , so it was a long drive out and back. Beautiful destination resort course. Worth the trip.
