Disappointingly...disappointed. I had previously written a good review on Wigwam and now that has, unfortunately, changed. I came here with my buddy almost a month ago. I am now writing this current review as I re-visited Wigwam 2 days ago with my father-in-law, his friend Gary, and my buddy. A month ago I was very impressed with the Wigwam golf. Something changed. Apparently, not for the better. A month ago I was so impressed that I had to get my father-in-law, his friend, my friend, and myself out to Wigwam as I wanted them to also enjoy Wigwam as I did. Not so much this time... First, we get to the bag drop as the actual parking lot is across the street and is more convenient to drop off a foursome and golf bags closer to the pro shop. No attendant was there when we pulled up as the actual golf cart area and bag drop are separated by an outdoor hallway, but still visible. My friend and I unload all the bags onto the bag rack and then all 4 of us change into our golf shoes, waited...and still no one showed. I told my friend to find someone and I would go park the car. Everyone was checked in when I got to the pro shop. I check in and go to the golf carts. The golf carts were all lined up and ready. I hop in mine and find, no joke, two beer bottle caps in cubby hole, empty bag of chips, AND a half drunk water bottle IN the ice chest...with just melted ice. I dont say anything. I throw away the half water bottle and dump the water out and go find another golf cart that has actual ice in the ice chest. I pick a cart two rows away and in back, not kidding, this ice chest had no ice, a used cooling towel, and two empty water bottles inside! These golf-carts were all lined up AND READY for play?! Thankfully, my f-i-ls cart only had NO ice in his >:-/. 3 attendants outside so I have no idea who was being lazy, but I kindly let one of them know and he actually panicked and profusely apologized. Who knows how many other un-clean carts were around as our carts were on the outside row of @20 golf-carts ready for play. As we are driving across the canal to the driving range my buddy casually mentions "It was cool of the pro shop to give us $25 vouchers to use for next time." Wait...what?? "I never got one. When did you get yours?" "When I payed in the pro shop" my friend said. I ask my f-i-l, and his friend. Apparently, my f-i-l got one, but me and Gary did not. At this point I am ticked AFTER the whole unclean golf carts. I tell the group to hit some range balls and I go back to the pro shop to get a $25 voucher for myself and Gary. Ok, let us put that behind and enjoy a nice round of golf. They have a water cooler on the driving range with cone cups...the water heavily tasted like the plastic of the water cooler. Little did I know that it was a precursor to the condition of the golf course. Ready to golf on the first tee of the Gold course. The tee-boxes were un-mowed. The grass was over an inch up the side of the tee-markers on certain holes. The 7th tee-box was not even an actual tee box, but a patch of rough with tee-markers in the ground! It had been 3 days since the last monsoon. Did Wigwam give the entire grounds crew an entire weeks vacation?? The fairways were un-mowed. The rough was extremely thick...it was un-mowed. The greens looked like they had been mowed maybe the day before....maybe as they were very slow and crispy. The entire golf course looked so unkept. Remodeling the bunkers on the Heritage course last time I was here and they were still remodeling them 3-4 weeks later. Maybe why they were giving $25 vouchers?? After the round we all had solemn in our moods and me apologizing for not picking a better course. At least we had a good meal after, but not at Wigwam. Did Wigwam get new management or a different grounds crew...or both since I was here last @month ago?? If so, apparently they now care more about the dollar than the customers who give them the dollars. I SHOULD give Wigwam only 1-star after this really bad experience, but I try to give benefit of the doubt, but not excuses.
I tried for 2 weeks to get in touch to no avail , I stayed there and talked to front desk with an I don t want to know attitude. My room had little black bugs in the bathroom that bit you shower door leaked all over the floor and there was no hot water for two days. The good is the bell people wait staff the pool people and bartenders are all outstanding
Gold Course was in great shape tee to green. Greens were firm, fast and smooth, some the best Ive played. Tee boxes are level, no dead spots well maintained. Plenty of room on the fairways, course is fair and no tricked up holrs. Ate at the restaurant Reds. Good food, decent number of options. Service was friendly but food was a bit slow.
The course is in amazing shape. The ground crew really has done an amazing job and with college tournaments going on there they really stepped it up from the over seeding. The greens were really smooth and held approach shots the way a green should. Im not a fan of hitting it short and bouncing shots on. Get out there a go flag hunting!
Absolute stunner! I had heard some good things about this golf resort, and I can say it surpassed my expectations. I played two of the three golf courses -- the Gold Course and the Patriot. Both were challenging and beautiful. This is going to be a staple on my agenda anytime Im back in the Phoenix area.
We were disappointed. Been here before and it was so good but this time when we ordered the Big Pig the pork patty wasnt cooked all the way and the bottom bun was soggy. Had them cook it longer and it still wasnt cooked all the way. They did take it iff our bill but Id have rather had a well cooked burger.
Three courses and all were well maintained and please tell to look at, fun to boot. Staff was always very accommodating and polite. Prompt cart service and a nice Pro Shop. Great prices for the quality of the place. The resort is amazing and the restaurant, Reds, has great food & drinks.
3 schöne Plätze mit viel Abwechslung. Spiele sehr gerne hier und kann es nur empfehlen. Super service!
Brad in the clubhouse was very very rude. We booked a tee time for 1:15, and drove 45 minuets to get there. Then Brad who had a very unaceptable attidude told us we couldent play because we are juniors. Very dissapointed!
If $4.25 beer is ok with you, then this may the course for you. If a 5 hour round and a staff that does nothing to speed up play is ok with you, this may be the course for you. The course is in great shape though.
Awesome courses! Played on all 3 and have not been disappointed. The staff there are the best. With some of the most inexpensive tee times in the Phoenix area, the Wigwam is for sure a must play for any golfer!
