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.

Great Course

Really a great course. It was in great shape from start to finish. The only thing I was disappointed with was the cart and food station. Both times I golfed they had next to no food. Response was they had a busy day. Which is great but you would think they would restock throughout the day. So the second day I brought my own drinks and food. Not my practice to do so but I did not want to be left hanging. Sure enough when I came to the food station they were out. Glad I brought my own stuff. Now that's my pet peeve. Yes I would come back again as the course was very challenging and in super shape.

Almost there!

Played the Hold course. They’re still watering the overawed s lot so very little toll out on the drive. This made the golf course at 6800 yds feel like 7200 yards.

Otherwise great condition.

It was just before overseeding but I like the challenge of the course, can't wait to play it again after overseeding.

Mediocre course

The course is ok, but not great. The layout is pretty plain and flat. The conditions were not great, but it was right before overseeing, so that was probably the main reason.

Off course, the restaurant, and clubhouse staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant, Red's, was very good. We ate breakfast there and went back for dinner.

Pace of play

It is very frustrating to have to wait 5-10 min on each shot when there are 2-3-4 holes open ahead of the group playing in front of us. Ranger apologized but did nothing to cure the situation.

One of my favorites

The Red and Blue courses were closed for reseeding, which probably led to our round being a little slow due to the number of people on the course. The Gold course is in great shape, very forgiving rough, tough but true greens. From the Blue tees, it plays 6800 yards, but only has a slope of 127. The round was worth every penny.

Gold Course

It is very long course for a high handicapper. Starter did not inform us of the aqua tee boxes. It was a 5 hr. Round since we had to wait on a lot of the holes.
