Saturday, May 20, 2017 / Wigwam-Heritage course

Wigwam Heritage Red Course to some of us. Built in 1972, the Heritage Course is a traditional layout lined with pine and eucalyptus trees. The course’s closing stretch of holes (15, 16, 17 and 18) just may be the toughest final four holes in the Phoenix area. The 15th hole is a 414-yard par-4 that requires a well-placed tee shot to bring birdie or par into play. The 454-yard, par-4 16th features a dogleg left and an approach shot to an elevated, well-protected green with water right and back. The 17th hole is a lengthy par-3 measuring a solid 250 yards from the tips. And finally, the 591-yard 18th hole is a monster par-5 with a dogleg left off the tee. Three well-played shots are required for a chance at birdie or par on the closing hole.

Jeff Currie was good today. He takes first place at Wigwam-Heritage course today with a 67 net leading the next three golfers who tied at 68 net. John Adair gets 2nd on the scorecard playoff, Tony Judd got third  and the Atta-a-Boy went to Dan Christiansen . Believe if Dan got 1 point for Atta-a-Boys he would be running away with the Big Dog competition. Didn’t check it but just seems that way. Next up a smoking deal at Ocotillo, so don’t miss playing this challenging course. Bring an extra pac of balls. Rest of Heritage scores below.

Rising out of the Arizona desert like an oasis, Ocotillo Golf Club is a golfer’s paradise. The course encompasses rolling hills lined by mature trees, colorful flower beds and all shapes and sizes of water hazards. An alternative to the desert-style golf so commonplace in the valley, this sanctuary-like course is also one of the best-maintained facilities in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area. Boasting a list of amenities normally found only at the finest private clubs and resorts, Ocotillo is recognized as one of the finest daily-fee facilities in the country. Serving as a qualifier course for PGA Tour events, Ocotillo routinely receives a four-star rating in Golf Digest’s annual guide. Ocotillo was also voted as one of the “Three Must-Play” courses in the valley – along with Troon North and the Boulders – in a recent Golf Digest Readers Poll.
