Rating 72.3

Faldo Championship Course at the Wildfire Golf Club measures as long as 6,846 yards, depending on which tees you're shooting from, and lies on 174 acres and features some differences from the average desert-themed golf courses. Faldo offers abundant fairways, big bentgrass greens and tee boxes, as well as the golf course's neighboring mountains, century-old saguaro cacti and 106 sand bunkers - which remind golfers of Aussie sand-belt golf courses, which gives it a magnificent locale for golfers.

Wildfire Golf Club is much-feted: When the Faldo Championship Course opened, the Arizona Republic selected hole No. 2 among the valley's 18 best. The golf course received recognition among the 2006 Travel & Leisure Golf's "World's Best Golf Resorts" for family getaways and in the 2006 Conde Nast Traveler rundown of the "Top 100 Golf Resorts in North America." These are in addition to the Gold Tee Award from Meetings & Conventions Magazine.

Course in great condition

This wasn’t our first time playing the Faldo course, but was a very enjoyable experience. Some quite challenging holes on both 9s, plenty of bunkers, several long par 4s, but very playable. Highly recommend, and will definitely come again.

Beautiful course

Excellent course. Beautiful and can be quite challenging. Difficult to say if is good value for the money. Still charging full pop for a round in early May with 100+ temperatures. When asked if there was a discount offered, they only offered twilite rate for late afternoon tee time. Course was completely empty from 10:00 am onwards yet still no incentive offered. Other deals in the desert for sure.

Great course - bad service

We paid $350 per person to play and saw a cart girl one time on the 14th hole… The rest of the staff didn’t care and didn’t make anything right with us… The service for a top level course and resort was a pretty bad experience. The courses in great shape but the service was definitely not great.

Great GolfNow Deal Made This Round Possible

The Faldo Course is a great resort-style layout and is HEAVILY bunkered … EVERYWHERE. With 108 sand traps available, I visited my share of them. Overall, the Course was in excellent playing condition, from tee to fairway to green. The only complaint I have was that the speed of the greens was slow (at least for me). Pace of play was very good (a little more than 3.5 hours). The value was fabulous, given my unusually low price offered via GolfNow.
