Wildfire Golf Club
This gorgeous golf resort in Phoenix features two 18-hole championship courses, a grass driving range, practice bunker and more. The first course was designed by legendary golfer and course designer Arnold Palmer. It plays up to 7,145 yards and allows golfers to experience the beauty of the Sonoran Desert landscape. The second course, designed by golf champion and designer Nick Faldo, sits on 174 acres and plays up to 6,846 yards. This course boasts generous fairways and more than 100 sand bunkers, similar to Australian Sand Bent Golf Courses.
Whether you plan to play the Wildfire Palmer course or the Wildfire Faldo course, you’ll enjoy a great day on the links surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Plus, each course at the Wildfire Golf Club in Phoenix is easy to navigate thanks to the state-of-the-art GPS systems that outfit each golf cart.
TPC Scottsdale features two 18-hole, par 71 golf courses. The more widely known of the two is the Stadium Course, which is home to the Waste Management Phoenix Open. An annual stop on the PGA tour, the Waste Management Open draws large crowds—around 600,000 people throughout the week—thanks to its festive atmosphere and star power.
In addition to the big names playing in the tournament, some of the most popular names in music come to perform at the “Bird’s Nest” where the party continues when the sun goes down. Throughout the rest of the year, golfers can book this course (designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish) and play where the pros play.
The second course isn’t quite as famous but it’s equally impressive. The Champions Course delivers an iconic desert golf experience. Designed by golf course architect Randy Heckenkemper, this course was not built to cater to any one style of play—so it provides a challenge for golfers of all skill levels.
