Yes, you can golf in the Arizona desert, but that doesn’t mean a golf course that looks like something moved in from the east coast. We know how to build a golf course that makes the most of the Sonoran Desert’s unique landscape and terrain. A perfect example of a golf course in the desert is We-Ko-Pa golf course on the nearby Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation.
Named as one of the Best Resort Courses by Golfweek magazine, We-Ko-Pa features two distinct courses called Cholla and Saguaro. Both offer tranquil golfing that’s outside the stresses of the city and houses.
Now what does We-Ko-Pa mean? It’s the Yavapai word for the nearby Four Peaks mountain range. Speaking of mountains, We-Ko-Pa has breathtaking views of not only Four Peaks, but Red Mountain and the Superstition and McDowell Mountains.
You can enjoy these wonderful views at the clubhouse after your came and take in the beauty of the desert while enjoying a cold beer or a meal from the full-service restaurant.
Be sure to check out the design of the clubhouse too! It was designed with elements that draw inspiration from Yavapai culture For example, the sloped entry walls and a wood beam canopy create a canyon-like entryway, followed by a water and fire feature that symbolizes the importance of woven baskets to the Yavapai culture.
We guarantee you’ll be snapping pics of the beautiful scenery when you’re on the green so be sure to post those perfect shots in Instagram with a filter and share it with us using #CityLimitless!
