Something About This Course
At 6300 yards the course plays tough but fair. Very well maintained and staffed. Great experience. Recommended
Red course needs some love
I normally enjoy the red course but it was terrible today. The flags were in the wrong position, the fairways had so much mud in them you couldn’t take a legit practice swing and the greens were awful. I was very serious about becoming a member but I’m not so sure anymore because these conditions are becoming a norm.
Wigwam Blue Course
The course was well maintained even by Arizona summer standards. Staff were awesome friendly and helpful. The course was deceivingly tricky, nice wide fast fairways with small technical greens. My only issue with the experience was the directions on the GN App, directions on the app directed me to Luna Court address which was close to the course but not where you would start.
Better then expected
Didn’t have high hopes. Played here before in the summer and wasn’t good. Course is in good condition today.
Wigwam Red 6/26/20
I just finished playing the Red course and i was very disappointed with the conditions. The greens were awful and nearly every ball was boucing everywhere, the fairways were some of the worst general bermuda I have played in Phoenix area and overall it was a miserable round. If i didnt have a friend with me I would have left after the first hole. The lay out wasn’t bad so at least it has that going for it. You wont see me back at Wigwam paying for a round of golf after that experience.
Decided to spend my Father’s Day playing this course. From the first hole I could tell it was going to be really slow. As the round went on, the course condition went from bad to worse. Dead areas everywhere, the fairways were either bare or very lush. The greens rolled differently on each hole. You can’t focus because the holes are so close together. The layout was just set up horribly. I think they should close this down for a bit and let it grow grass back and be able to manicure the greens properly. Paid 40$ but it wasn’t worth 20$ . Definitely won’t be back.
The course appeared to be preparing for aeration. You need to always be alert as the courses intertwine. We almost got hit by an errant shot. The fair ways had many dirt spots. The greens were fast and challenging. The course is not in good shape right now.
Fairways and greens were in rough shape compared to previous rounds played here, hot weather has definitely taken a toll on this Course
The staff was awesome. The greens were like putting on packed dirt. Overall I played well I would definitely recommend this course to a friend.
Fun and Beautiful Course!
Played this course for the first time and had a lot of fun...even though I didn’t play great. Enjoyed the layout and the beautiful surroundings. The course has its challenges, but it’s not ridiculously difficult. Staff was very friendly and the GPS on the carts was cool. I look forward to playing there again!
Pros: Tee box, fairways, bunkers all in good shape for summer, very friendly staff.
Cons: greens was just aerated and pace of play was some what slow.
