Paul originally nominated the Cholla course at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club as a gem and we added it to the Top 100 website in February 2008. Since then, we have extended our Best In State rankings for Arizona and the Cholla has made the ranking grade. Paul’s original comments are as follows:

“We-Ko-Pa (which means 4 peaks) is located in Fountain Hills just outside Scottsdale and is blessed with two award winning courses, Cholla & Saguaro (named after the iconic desert cacti that cover the landscape). The Cholla course is a Scott Miller design and opened for play in 2001 and the second course, Saguaro, designed by Ben Crenshaw & Bill Coore, opened for play in 2007.

Both courses are built on land owned and developed by Native American tribe Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation. We-Ko-Pa is all about the golfing experience with stunning views and vistas with no homes constructed anywhere near the site and some of the views from the elevated tees are jaw dropping. Also, the conditioning could not be better.”

WeKoPa Cholla is probably the best fee paying course in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. WeKoPa means Four peaks in the Yavapai language and to be honest there is some bite to Cholla. Terrific vistas of mountains, valleys, canyons and washes, not to mention the Saguaro cactus and other desert vegetation. The first hole is fairly short but has a spectacular view overlooking the emerald green fairway and Red Mountain in the distance. Pick up a par or better because the next seven holes are pretty intimidating. The two hardest holes on the front nine are the two par 5s. The second is a double dogleg with a wash cutting across the fairway off the tee with the green tucked away from sight in a little nook of it's ow. Desert golf at its finest. Number 8 is the signature hole with the most incredible view of Four Peaks mountain. A downhill dog leg that only the longest of hitters would dare to go for in two. The second shot has to be a layup taken with utmost care. Too long or too right and the wash awaits. The third shot, again downhill to a long narrow green surrounded by a wash and deep bunkers. par is a good score. A great back nine with wonderful views....with a great 19th hole awaiting you. WeKoPa Cholla is a spectacular golf course that you have to play.

The original We-Ko-Pa course (Cholla) is one of my favorite courses in the Phonix/Scottsdale/Fountain Hills area. I have to photos of this course on the wall above my computer. As the reviewer said, there are no houses to detract from the great views. The course has a good variety of holes and is very playable for all levels of golfer. Service is outstanding and they serve a delicious burger. You can see the fountain hills fountain from several of the holes.
