Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web
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.

  • One of 3 places we played our annual tourney. Fairways were kind of brown, but staff and greens were excellent. Great experience. 
  • Very friendly staff. Both on the course and in the club house. Beautiful golf course set in the Arizona desert. Surprised that the cost of golf at a late morning tee off was only 50 dollars or so. Unf...  read more »
  • We-Ko-Pa is rated highly by golf magazines for public courses in the US. There's a good reason for that. The course, staff and clubhouse are first-rate. It's a bit pricey but its worth the drive to th...  read more »
  • I would stay here again. Myself and 10 month old daughter had a wonderful weekend away to rest and relax. Staff was super. Food was better than good - I would go there just for he food it was so good.
  • My favorite golf facility in the greater PHX area. Two 18-hole golf courses. The Cholla course and the Saguaro course. Both courses are unique and not the same to each other. Cholla is more of a desert-park conditioning while Saguaro is more 'pure' in its conditioning. BOTH amazing golf courses and, if you can, try and play both. The views are fantastic and there is not an encumbrance of houses surrounding you. Always very well maintained. Worth every penny. Another plus that may not seem like a big deal, but as a once-a-week golfer, it is a big deal: ball-washer *and* club-washer *on* the cart. I can not emphasize this nice detail enough. I think most golfers agree. All high-end courses should have this nice feature...the ones that don't I honestly think it takes away from a good experience. Thank you Wekopa for treating the customer well and paying attention to the details.
  • We attended a convention here and had the misfortune of being in town during a water main break. This kind of thing is totally out of the resorts control but they stepped up to the plate by providing endless bottled water and brought in portable restroom facilities to help keep their guests as comfortable as possible. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out they didn't bill us for that nights stay. The water was back on early that evening and other then not getting my morning shower all was good. Great job making the best of a tough situation.
  • Two of the nicest courses in AZ - with Saguaro being one of my favorites, particularly for walkers. Bear in mind that during the summer on weekends, with one course closed - they tend to book tee times on 1st and 10th tee, so it does create a delay at the turn, but rounds are still on pace and around 4 hours and 20 minutes.
  • I've played both courses several times and the resort courses have been my favorites in the valley, however, the Saguaro course's bunkers are in poor condition. The "sand" is more like crunchy dirt. It seems to me if you're going to charge over $200 per round the course, including the bunkers, should be in perfect condition. I played a low end course a couple days later, Superstition Springs, and the bunkers were much, much better! Come on, man!
