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.

Wonderful round on the gold course. no waiting except for a few minutes on two par 3's. The course is in great shape. A lot of people don't take 3 seconds to repair their divots on the green. This is a very nice course; the whole resort is top notch.

Course in great shape and good value. The Gold course is tricky to play but good variation of holes with water and fairway bunkers to make you think. Not your typical desert course as it is more of a park like setting.

The course was in great shape. The greens were hard to hold and very slick and fast. Knowing the course layout would have helped out. Can’t wait to play it again

This is a very fun fold course with great conditions. The course was extremely well manicured and the layout of the course was very fun. What drove me nuts were the greens. Extremely undulated and hard. For a golf course which is 90 years old, you would think they could make the greens more receptive. I hit multiple wedges on that landed on the front of the green that literally bounced over the back of the green. Then I would hit shots to land on the fringe to bounce/roll on and they wouldn’t bounce up. The speed of the greens was fast but playable. You need to play this course 2 or 3 times before you can expect to score. Everything else was just great. I felt that the course rewards excellent shots, but penalizes good shots.

My first time to play any of the Wigwam courses. We hsd a very windy dayf following some rain days. The course drained very well and the ball rolled well on the fairways. The greens rolled well but could benefit from some sun and warmer weather. I would recommend this course to my friends and would play again.

Second time I've played this track, and let me tell you I thought I had learned something the first time around...but I still struggled on the hard, crowned, unfriendly greens!

Its the only thing that is unfriendly about this place, though. Great people, pace of play was excellent, all the amenities were great [although one of my $40 cigars!!! unravelled].

If you play, bring your A game and a bag full of patience, the greens don't hold anything but a spinny, high iron or a pitch and run. The rest of the MacKenzie track was a great test of target golf, and playing from the white tees, the length was manageable for an old boy like me. If you like a challenge, this will fit the bill!

If you like a little less challenge, the Blue and Red courses are also excellent, and super maintained, and you get all of the same great friendly service. 2nd to none!

The course was in immaculate condition; very challenging, esp the greens. The best part was the staff. The pro shop folks were as nice as could be. The starter, I believe, Ron?, got us out a little early which was great. Definitely will play here again.

One of the most challenging courses I’ve played. I didn’t score well but it was a lot of fun. The greens will really humble you. They’re fast and sloped. There are water hazards on the fairways and tons of bunkers around the greens. The bunkers are great with nice fluffy sand.
