We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, Fort McDowell

#4 of 142 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.

  • Really a special course. Not inexpensive, but worth it. Views are amazing, course was in great condition. Truly memorable, would highly recommend for someone seeking a classic desert golf experience.
  • One of my all-time favorite golf courses. I played the Cholla Course and loved every minute of it. Large saguaro cacti are everywhere and you won't find a single house or building on the course. It's true Arizona desert golf at it's finest. The holes are fun and require a good amount of course management to play well. From the minute you pull up you'll be happy with your decision to play here!
