Best Phoenix Courses


Recommended Posts

Wigwam...not even top 50! Boulders only for aesthetics. TPC is overrated, so know you are only playing it for nostalgia purpose. Quintero is great scenery and out of towners love it. Troon North is the best of the bunch you have.

To not include Wekopa Saguaro or Southern Dunes or Wickenburg Ranch in a poll is a miss.

Well you are all over the map with those choices. Wigwam is just terrible....I was forced to play there last week and regretted every minute I was there!

I would instead consider: Troon North Pinnacle course, the 36 hole package at Wekopa, Quintero, and Verde River or Southern Dunes. You could also consider Grayhawk in the mix.

Is it bad that I didn't think Quintero was anything special? Some cool drop shot par 3's and a neat par 5 that goes up the hill there but I wasn't blown away like I thought I'd be. For reference, the only other course I've played in the Phoenix area in the past 20 years is Dinosaur Mountain which for the price I paid was enjoyable.

Quintero is like a gallon size ice cream sunday that has one scoop of ice cream and the rest is non dairy whipped cream with sprinkles on top. Its fun to look at but design wise it isnt well executed. I always recommend it to people from out of town because it is a unique spectacle and usually for one round that can carry it. IMO design wise it isnt great. Even though you point out the par threes as being a strength, do you remember what club you hit? Chances are you played the same shot on three of the one shotters.

Strangely, Wigwam Gold found its way on to Golfweek's best in state list. Huh? Southern Dunes is worth the hour's drive, and it's a bargain at less than $100. Most of the top courses are going to be $200+ this time of the year.

Otherwise, We Ko Pa is tough to beat. If you're going to make a trek out to Quintero, keep driving another 20 minutes and play Wickenburg Ranch.

puttinfor knows what he's talking about, Southern Dunes, We-ko-pa & Wickenburg are must plays. I'm not from the area ( have played with puttin 2 times) I've played many tracks in the Phoenix area over the years I would only vote for Troon North.

Maybe you shouldn't go by what I say, I'm 60 and I'll be in Bandon with my best buddy the 1st week of Feb. Bring it weather man!!

I basically went for Quintero because it was close to my parents' place and seemed to have good reviews. Also got a decent deal for this time of the year at $100/round. If I would've paid the approx $180 rack rate I would have been severely disappointed. Great views but not a ton of substance as others have said on here. Next time I'm in the area I'll look into Wickenburg, Troon North, WeKoPa and Southern Dunes as you guys have recommended. Glad I'm not crazy for thinking Quintero wasn't all that special!
