Hillcrest Golf Course plays over 7,000 yards from the tips posing a challenge to even the biggest hitters. There are, however, plenty of doglegs, water hazards, and white sand bunkers to keep them in check. Generous fairways, an all grass layout, and an absence of blind shots make Hillcrest a perfect site for any caliber of the participant. Choose from multiple tee placements, which allow playing from 5,500 to over 7,000 yards. The course can also accommodate up to 288 players. With elegant yet comfortable surroundings and impeccable service from a knowledgeable staff, it’s easy to see why Hillcrest is the venue for more than 100 corporate and private events annually. As the nation’s largest golf school, John Jacobs’ offers a variety of individual and group instruction options to help you achieve your goals, whether it’s polishing your backswing or revamping your game. The Club features a double-ended driving range as well as extensive short game practice areas for putting, pitching, and bunker shots.

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.
