Fort McDowell Casino Golfing

We-Ko-Pa Golf Club

Ok, to say this is a nice golf course is a serious understatement.  Located on Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation land, there are two courses at WeKoPa -The Cholla course which was built in 2000 by golf course designer Scott Miler who worked for Jack Nicklaus's golf course design firm.  And the Saguaro course which was built in 2005.  Both courses are amazing and both unique to each other, giving Fort McDowell Casino Resort, Golf and Spa more than one reason to visit again. Both courses also offer amazing views of the McDowell Mountains, Red Mountain, Four Peaks and the Superstitions.

Other amenities at the golf course include a 10,000 square foot clubhouse, which features full-service indoor or outdoor dining, as well as a golf shop and lounge areas.

We recommend their well-done websites for a further look into these courses.  They provide some amazing photos of the course and the natural scenery and do a better job explaining the courses than we could.
