The Wigwam Resort possesses three 18-hole courses, the Blue Course, the Red Course, and the Gold Course. All three courses were built on a rolling terrain with mature creeks sprinkled throughout and meandering creeks running through, which can all affect shots. The Blue Course is the shortest of the three courses but Blue plays long due to the elevated greens. The creeks create water hazards that come into play on several holes and there are also many strategically placed sand bunkers throughout the course as well. The Wigwam Resort facility has various practice facilities including a chipping area and putting green.

Great layout for the amateur golfer. very forgiving Fairways with challenging bunkers.

The Greens in the Tee Box were in pristine condition. I didn't see a brown spot on the entire course.

the staff in the Pro Shop for very friendly and very helpful we arrived 30 minutes early due to unexpected light traffic. they sent us out to the starter on the blue course who said not a problem you can see off now. that's what I call customer service.

We will be back thank you.

Had fun at the Blue course today. Played from the black so challenging enough distance wise. All twosomes it seemed (including us) so we finished in 3 hours (Tuesday 11am tee time). Greens are nice and deceptively small so watch your distances into the green. Course in nice shape and appreciate the range balls being included.

I had not played the Blue Course since the renovation. I found a shortened version of the old Blue Course with many new or revamped holes. The course condition was very good but the layout was a bit like a resort course. I will opt to play either the Red or Gold in the future. Both are more challenging.

Not great, but not terrible either. Short course w elevated small greens. Kind of dangerous with people hitting all around you. So many times we were held up by others playing other holes in our fairways. It was fine for the price but no bargain

Played 18 holes today and the weather was perfect. It's getting that time of year again for reseeding and the course is getting dry and hard. Greens unholdable and sanded but for the price what can you say. I''ll be back in June when things heat up and the playing condions come back to the great course that you are. Thanks

Blue Course was in great shape. Greens were fast and tough, but fair. Staff was friendly and helpful and the pace was 3h 20m on a BUSY Masters Sunday. No gaps, no slow play, and VERY little to no waiting on any tee box.. Excellent management.

We had a 2 PM tee off. The weather for Phoenix was a mild 74. The Blue course was in great shape, the fairways and greens were very friendly. Played the round in 3 hrs 45 mins.

All in all, great price for a memorable round.

This course is always a favorite. Although par 70, you would think it would be easy, but there are several water hazards and many sand traps placed strategically where you can get in trouble. The greens are big and sloped providing challenging putts. The fairways are lush as well as everywhere else. You would not think you are on a desert course. There are lots of very large trees providing shade during the very hot weather. The pace of play was great as we were finished in 3 1/2 hours. Had a great day! Already booked another round.

Awesome course. Played the Blue course from the tips and it was great. The course isn't overly long but it makes up the difficulty on the greens....they are sloped and fast so ensure you put your ball below the hole. Good golfing to you! Cheers!

I played the Blue Course for the first time on March 21. Bag boy, shop attendant and starter were all very friendly. The course was in very good condition. Ball set up nicely in the fairways and the bunkers had plenty of sand that had been raked. While the greens rolled true, be advised that they are small, mounded and fast which affected my ability to hold them. Also, pace of pay was excellent as my two playing partners and I finished in under 4 hours. I would recommend this course to anyone who's in the west valley and wants an enjoyable round of golf in a nice setting.
