Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 / We Ko Pa Saguaro Course

The Saguaro Course at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club combines distinctive desert-golf traits with the timeless traditions of golf course design. For example, it’s built for walking with greens situated near to the next tee. It follows the natural movement of the land; they didn’t move much dirt. And the playing corridors are wider when compared to target-golf design. AWARDS AND ACCOLADES Like its sister course, Saguaro has garnered numerous awards and accolades from golf industry leading publications. Golf Digest give it the 21st spot in its 2015-2016 list of the “Best in State Rankings: Arizona,” which considers both public and private courses across the state. And, Golfweek magazine honored Saguaro with three “Golfweek’s Best” rankings: 5th on the “Casino Courses” list for 2016; 2nd “Best Courses You Can Play: State by State” in Arizona for 2016; and No. 30 on Golfweek’s 2017 list of America’s “Best Resort Courses.”
