  • Great golf club outside of Scottsdale, but a little hike to get out there. Incredible views on both courses and everything was in great shape despite it being 110 degrees outside. Was also impressed by the food at the clubhouse. Would have given five stars if the staff was just a little bit more friendly.
  • One of my favorite courses in Arizona. Two beautiful layouts that incorporate the desert without being too punitive. The vistas are stunning. It's obvious the tribal owners have water rights, a green and lush oasis. A great Casino next door too. Only a short drive from Scottsdale.
  • First off what a beautiful view! One of the most well kept greens I've played on! The service was great. Food at the clubhouse was delicious and not too expensive. The Cholla course took about 4 1/2 hours to play though. I highly recommend this course!
  • This place is amazing. Great views on both courses. The Cholla course is more target golf, but Saguaro while more open is very hilly so you need to on point or the slope will take your ball to the desert.
  • To anyone actually reading these comments- I recently played summer golf here in AZ. 72 holes in 2 days and he is my ranking and why I ranked below courses. 1) We-Ko-Pa: an incredible true desert course with the absolute BEST views, tee boxes, fairways, and greens in the summer. This was a fall back course for our group and it was outstanding. Great customer service too. 2) Troon North- Monument Course: also an AWESOME course and if we didn’t play WeKoPa this would have been number one. Best customer service by far and a great course. Fairways were decent but a lot of dead spots. Still an incredible course especially for the summer. 3) TPC Scottsdale- Stadium Course: terrible customer service. Fairways were Pretty bad. Greens were terrible for being punched a month ago. I expect much much more from here and wasn’t met with anything I expected. Pretty much had to put our clubs on our own cart and find the practice area ourselfs. No water provided and nearest station was on 3/4 holes. Totally disappointed here and expected much more. Open course and easy to hit low if you play right. 4) Boulders: eh not much to say here. Target golf. Pretty old crowd that plays slow. We paid less that $70 and I WOULD NOT (ever) recxomend paying more than that. Ever. Ever. Ever. Decent course and I’m sure it’s ok in season but I was disappointed. Thanks for reading! Brad
