We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, Fort McDowell

4.5
#4 of 120 in Golf in Arizona
We-Ko-Pa Golf Club is a daily fee golf facility that consists of the original 18 holes, the Cholla course, designed by Scott Miller. A second 18 holes, the Saguaro course, designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw is also open for play. The outstanding facilities opened for business in December 2001. In addition to the two 18-hole courses, there is a large practice facility and a full service clubhouse. We-Ko-Pa Golf Club has been developed and is owned by the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation.

Located just east of Scottsdale and Fountain Hills, the two courses and associated facilities are on land that will never be used for residential or commercial development, yielding dramatic views of the Sonoran desert and the surrounding mountains.

    I played a late round (3 p.m) here on a Thursday in mid-June. I arrived early to use the range, but was told that the range was already closed for the day, which was a bit of a bummer. It was understa...  more »

    The two courses here are both wonderful and distinctly different, which makes for a great golf outing. The Saguaro is higher rated, but I personally prefer the Cholla for its aesthetic qualities. The ...  more »

    Can't say enough great things about my experience at We-Ko-Pa. I played 9 rounds in 4-1/2 days, and stayed at the resort. The staff was great, always ready to help out in any way. Food at the grill wa...  more »

    a group of 4 of us from Vancouver BC and Seattle played here the weekend of the open and had a great time. we played both courses and found conditions, staff and facility to be top notch. green were quick and tough to hold for mid/high handicappers (which we are) but we still had lots of fun. we bought a 4 round package including a few other courses so it's difficult to say how much our 2 rounds were but i suspect they were the most expensive. we played southern dunes the next day and we enjoyed that course equally so in terms of value, there may be better choices.

    Best golfing views I've ever experienced in the desert. Beautifully designed and well maintained courses. My favorite is Saguaros, Cholla is nice, but not like it's sister course.

    A very beautiful gold course. In the evening, there was little wildlife running around and it was nice to see. The gold course is very nicely maintained

    I've played these courses several times, and have always had a good experience here. No homes on the golf course, which is nice, and some breathtaking views. We-Ko-Pa hosted #TheOven16, and the staff hit a home run with everything. Just an amazing property. Always in good shape, too, with outstanding staff. We-Ko-Pa is a home run and worth the drive. FORE!

    Two of the most beautiful courses ever. Always in good condition. Views are second to none. Without question we would give the courses an easy 5 out of 5 but the customer service is some of the poorest we have ever encountered. A couple rude, unfriendly and fowl mouth bag guys. A pro shop staff that makes you feel like you are imposing when checking in. Ashame for such beautiful courses. They need to send their pro shop staff and bag boys down to Grayhawk or Troon North for training in good customer service. Then they might come close to the experiences at those two clubs.
