The Wigwam Golf Club
The Wigwam Golf Club–which was established nearly a century ago–is the only of its kind in the state to offer 54 holes of championship golf. (It comprises three 18-hole golf courses: Gold, Blue and Red.) The Gold Course, considered one of the best public golf courses in Arizona, was renovated in 2015 by former British Open champion and PGA TOUR veteran Tom Lehman, who left Robert Trent Jones Sr.’s (original architect of the course when it opened in 1965) signature greens untouched during the renovation project. The Blue Course is ideal for golfers who excel at short and mid-iron play, while the just-updated Red Course offers a traditional layout, lined with pine and eucalyptus trees.
Standout hole: Both unique and challenging, The Gold Course’s No. 8 offers a green that is elevated and slopes from back to front. Here, an irrigation canal cuts in front of the green, making accuracy key as shots landing short of the green will go into it.
