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.

Gold Course Green

Really enjoyed course but greens were rock hard and would not hold any approach shots.

Blue instead of gold

I had to play the blue course because the gold course was backed up by an hour. Blue course was good but I paid for the gold course.

Wigwam Gold

Would have appreciated warning that course was cart path only before arriving at course. Great course and lay out, but a lot of unanticipated walking. Wouldn't even allow handicapped player to use flag.. Also GPS not installed on one of our carts.

Very Disappointed

First of all, 2 hour frost delay with temperature in the 40s and grass soft without visual frost whatsoever. Second locker room was not stocked and no beverages available. and third and this is the big one, they waited until we were ready to hit the the first tee before notifying us that the entire course was cart path only which is absolutely unacceptable. And finally fourth, the course was in average condition and pin placement was ridiculous! Haven't been this disappointed with a golf course in decades and considering the track really isn't that impressive to begin with, and we played their so-called gem "the Gold Course", I will not be back ever to this lame establishment! We were not even allowed to hit the driving range which is on carpet, what a joke! And not allowed to hit the chipping greens and/or putting greens? I never take the time to write a bad review on any company, but I feel completely compelled to write this one to protect even one person from having to get screwed over like we were! So very disappointed, and I think your corporate board should really consider investigating your staff and their inabilities which are destroying your established name!

Beautiful course but horrible pace management

Playing the gold course and the pace of play was absolutely terrible! It took our group 3 1/2 hours to play 9 holes! To make things more complicated the course was cart path only due to an upcoming tournament which is great but cart path only really slows the pace of play especially when you’re stacking tee times on top of each other.

Excellent value. Enjoyable course

The course was in top shape. Even the seats in the cart were extra soft. Had a marvelous round on this forgiving course.

Gold course challenge

long and full of trees, so keep your ball in the fairway. it was a perfect day, even though we had a frost delay. The diversity of the three courses is great and a lot of fun.

Gold Service-Not

Upon arrival I was told there was a frost delay, no big deal. I inquired about the range and was told it was just over there? So I grabbed some clubs for my long trek to the range. Approximately 1/4 mile. While the walk did me fine everyone else seemed to be arriving in carts, where’s mine? Returned no to the starting area I was told the delay was short, 20 minutes or so. So off to the putting green I go. Approximately 35 minutes later I inquired about starting time. Was told to go and see the starter and when I arrived at the 1st tee Mr. Starter asked where have I been. In my opinion I was treated without care or respect of me being there to play a course I long believed was special. The course was outstanding, the playing partners were very nice but the overall service was lousy.

Long with long rough

Played the club tees and battled the course. Rough was long and between the two of us lost 3 balls that disappeared. Frustrating not sure if this is how they keep the course at all times but it was unforgiving. Greens were slow but practice green was fast.

Disappointed

Played the other 2 courses at Wigwam a few years ago. Heard all the hype about the renovations at the Gold & looked forward to playing there. The course was in very good shape...but it was boring! I didn’t have an uphill, downhill or sidehill lie all day. The course is an oldstyle, flat Muni. Def not worth more than $40-$50, especially when it’s cart path only as it was today. And especially with tons of quality tracks all over the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.
I’m sure there are plenty who like this style layout, but to me it was just plain vanilla.
