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 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.

Beautiful Arizona day for golf and Jake Nicol tops the scoring with a 65 net. Well done Jake. Rusty Silverman scored an Eagle on number #4 hole and ended up tied at 66 with Mick Panarello. Rusty won 2nd on the scorecard playoff and Mick got 3rd. Bill Heller scooped the Atta-A-Boy. Next up Palmbrook in Sun City. Results summary click here.
