The Legendary Wigwam 54 Holes of Golfing Splendor

Wigwam Golf ClubThe Wigwam is more than just a resort; it is a part of Arizona history. Situated in the West Valley, this iconic hotel first opened in 1929 and has become synonymous with Litchfield Park and is in many ways the cornerstone of that very community.

Blending casual elegance with the charm of the Southwest, the Wigwam is a 440-acre getaway destination that promises exceptional vacation and dining experiences with even more unforgettable golf outings. In fact, The Wigwam was recently the home of the 2011 U.S. Open Qualifier as well as the 2010 U.S. Amateur Qualifier.

Located just north of I-10 off Litchfield Road, The Wigwam is just 20 minutes from downtown Phoenix.

One of Arizona’s first and finest golf destinations, the 82-year-old Wigwam is the only resort in the Grand Canyon State to offer three exceptional 18-hole golf courses on property. Two of these, the Gold Course and The Patriot Course (formerly the Blue Course) were designed by famed architect Robert Trent Jones Sr., while the Wigwam’s Heritage Course (formerly the Red Course) was created by Arizona golf legend Robert “Red” Lawrence.

Wigwam Golf ClubBuilt in 1964, the Gold Course offers players perhaps the finest traditional layout in the Great Southwest. This lush, mature course stretches 7,100 yards from the back tees and challenges players with classic Jones features – namely small, elevated greens; narrow landing areas; elongated tees; and strategically placed bunkers and water hazards.

Perhaps the best kept secret at The The Patriot which plays to 6,030 yards and closely follows the hole routing of The Wigwam’s original golf course. Also designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., the Patriot plays to 6,030 yards and roughly follows the hole routing of The Wigwam’s original golf course. Though shorter in length than the Gold Course, The Patriot which plays to 6,030 yards and nearly follows the hole routing of The Wigwam’s original golf course. Scoring well requires pinpoint accuracy and a strong understanding of golf strategy.

At 6,861 yards, The Heritage Course is The Wigwam’s most modern design and offers players an open, “airy” layout that’s dotted with numerous lakes, rock-filled creeks and gigantic greens – all of which put a premium on good putting and chipping skills.

Now known as simply Wigwam Golf, golf operations are headed by 30-year Arizona golf veteran Leo Simonetta. Simonetta and his staff are striving to deliver one of Exceptional service, outstanding course conditioning of its 54 holes and quality dining at Red Allen’s restaurant makes The Wigwam a unique resort golf and country club experience.
