Top public course in Arizona

There are two courses at WKP Golf Club. The first is the Cholla course – a 7,225-yard par-72 that has been described as the “essence of desert golf.” It features picture-perfect views of the Verde and Salt River Valleys, as well as the Red Mountain and Superstition Mountains. It is widely regarded as one of the best public courses in Arizona and has been voted a top-10 Arizona “course you can play” every year since 2007.

The second and most recognized course is Saguaro – a 6,966-yard par-71 that has been voted the No. 1 public golf course in Arizona for 13 of the last 14 years by Golfweek. In addition, the Saguaro course was voted the fifth-best casino course in the United States – good enough to be top-rated casino course in Arizona and the highest-ranked tribally-owned golf operation in the country.

A desert oasis of impeccable beauty

The 360-degree panoramic view of the Sonoran Desert is easily the most attractive element of these golf courses. The surrounding landscape is completely undisturbed by manmade structures, meaning no need to worry about hitting that house to the left of the fairway or slicing one onto the highway. But most importantly, it means that you’re able to experience golf the way it’s supposed to be played. The natural beauty of blue skies and red mountains combined with the tranquility of silence equals the desirable relaxation state that is ideal for such a leisure activity.

It is highly recommended that you make your way to We-Ko-Pa Golf Club to experience golf the way it was meant to be played. There’s no doubt about it, this is one of the most beautiful courses in America.
