Always a pleasure in the desert!

Big Wick is a beautifully kept course with considerable diversity and challenge. It is unusual in that each side has three par 3 holes, none of which are slam dunks. The greens were absolutely perfect and plenty fast. Yesterday's pin placement made for a good test of putting skill. (that's the nice way to say it)

The AZ Goat

This course, facility, and staff are all truly amazing. Each time I have been to play the Big Wick I am in awe. The golf course is unbelievable and features some of the best holes is all of Arizona! This is a must play golf course. Make sure to plan extra time so you can check out the Lil Wick!

Best Public Course In AZ

In my opinion, this is the best public course in AZ, and I’ve played all courses rated higher than golf digest. It was in impeccable shape and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The greens rolled so true, one can’t blame a missed putt on the green’s condition, but you can certainly make long putts if you read your putt correctly and hit your line. Highly recommend this course.

First time playing for my friend

The course was in great shape. Greens were fast, but putted like silk. I played terrible, but the course was great. I brought out one of my friends who I thought would like the course. He loved it. Kept saying it was his new favorite course.

Top Notch

This course was pristine. One of the nicest maintained courses I’ve ever played. Course was challenging but more forgiving than it looked many times. This course was very fun to play and the holes had a lot of diversity from one hole to the next. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were all perfect. Greens ran very pure. Can’t wait to play here again it doesn’t get much better than this.

Great conditions

Made the 1.5 hour drive the East valley. Worth the drive to play once a year especially if you can get a decent rate. Conditions were very good...greens held everything but were fast and very tricky. The ongoing housing development takes away from the scenery.. Ugly manufactured homes throughout the course . They must be cheap because I am not sure why anyone would seek out this destination to live. Understaffed in the bar and restaurant. Came for the course and it is well worth it! Lots of blind shots that made it tricky when playing the first time.

Labor Day at WR

This course was simply exceptional. I was amazed at the beauty of the surrounding areas, which were nothing in comparison to the beauty of the course it self. The course was in as good of a condition as any I course I have ever played. That is quite impressive considering the dry heat. I was a big fan of the short game practice area adjacent to the driving range. The layout of this course was challenging, yet a ton of fun. My only wish is that it was closer to Tempe so I could play more often.

This course is in great shape. I have played it twice now and it was better than I remembered. Greens are super soft and really fast, course is definitely well cared for. Also if you play 18 you must go and play the little 9 hole par 3 course as well. This is my favorite course I have played yet.

Great golf course that was in amazing condition; fairways were perfect and greens were smooth and quick, but were very responsive to a good shot. Pace of play was definitely a five ⭐️ as well, never waited one time.
I will definitely continue to come here as often as I can; the staff members were awesome too!

Excellent

I have been playing all around the Phoenix area. From Gold Canyon (East) Eloy (South) to Oakcreek and Stone Ridge (North) and nearly everywhere in between. This course has by far the best greens I have ever played on. Very soft and smooth almost like a carpet. The rest of the course is in excellent shape. This is a fun course. I love all the elevation changes. It makes it exciting. The staff was very professional. The ranger came by and checked in on me a few times. Made sure I had water. It was very hot out. Nice guy. We chatted a bit before moving on.
