It's true that these courses are challenging but they are not impossible. I'm a high handicap and yet I managed three great scores here. I played one round at Saguaro and two rounds at Cholla. Both courses were in great shape with stunning scenery. There are a lot of forced carries and protected greens but the fairways are wide and... More

Yes, better than TPC Scottsdale - not even close. This course is east of the city and by itself in a spectacular desert setting. Well worth the effort of driving out there.

First of all my wife and I are pretty poor golfers and even though we found this course challenging we are very glad we went because it truly is so beautiful. It's a true desert course so the good golfers will really love it. By the way the clubhouse is also spectacular.

One of 3 places we played our annual tourney. Fairways were kind of brown, but staff and greens were excellent. Great experience.

Very friendly staff. Both on the course and in the club house. Beautiful golf course set in the Arizona desert. Surprised that the cost of golf at a late morning tee off was only 50 dollars or so. Unfortunately we chose a really hot day to play and my golf was terrible, but you cannot blame anyone else for that,... More

We-Ko-Pa is rated highly by golf magazines for public courses in the US. There's a good reason for that. The course, staff and clubhouse are first-rate. It's a bit pricey but its worth the drive to the east from Phoenix. I would recommend buying a course guide for first-timers here. And beware that the ball flies farther than you think... More

Both courses offer varied experiences and levels of difficulty with tee's that match your ability or interest. Allow for some time at the practice area to work on your short game and get accustomed to the sand as there is plenty of it on the course and it is somewhat unique. Be aware of the overseeding schedule in the spring.... More
