The San Marcos Golf Course boasts a recent multi-million dollar renovation and now includes a brand new state-of-the-art irrigation system that produces year-round premium playing condition, expanded lakes, new tee boxes, reconstructed bunkers with new sand, and green enlargements on a handful of holes. The result is a strategically-diverse and visually stunning layout that makes for an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all playing abilities.

My favorite VGA golfer won today. Me of course, Harley Ewing won it with a 67 net score after taking a 10 on # 18. Some days it just works you know? Larry Burton was second one stroke of the pace at 68 net. Neal Fisel was third at 69 net with Tom Hebert and Dan Campos sharing the Atta Boy at 70 net. Cart path only and tall grass made the course a lot tougher than normal. Recent reseeding.

This Arizona treasure was established in the 1920’s, a time when golf courses did not get built through dense housing developments, and certainly not with tight, target fairways. At the Wigwam, the golf courses have remained at the top of the list. This jewel of the desert is among the Southwest’s last remaining golf resorts built for a pure golf experience. Canals, streams and lakes cascade through the journey. The shadows cast on greens and bunkers are from majestic parkland trees, not multi-story resort buildings. The Wigwam’s three 18-hole championship golf courses offer a diversity that cannot be matched by any other Arizona resort. Here, the golf enthusiast has their pick of not just one or two courses, but three 18-hole courses – 54 holes of championship golf including two courses designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones, Sr. And, in true Wigwam style, each course – The Gold, Blue, and Red offers a unique challenge that adds spice and variety to one’s stay at this timeless and relaxing retreat. For guests that truly love the game of golf, The Wigwam features a variety of golf packages to entice every traveler, from family getaways to golf-intensive buddy trips for 5 or more. We are proud to announce the addition of the Warren Schutte Player’s Academy. Warren was the first Hall of Fame Golfer at UNLV. And though he has maintained pro status for the last 14 years, his focus has now shifted to helping others excel at golf.
