- Address18200 Wekopa Way, Fort McDowell, AZ 85264, USA
The We-Ko-Pa Golf Club lies to the north east of Scottsdale on a site developed by the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and it offers daily fee golfers the use of two spectacular 18-hole layouts, the Cholla (opened in 2002) and the Saguaro (which debuted in 2006).
Situated on property totally untouched by residential or commercial buildings, the courses here offer a fantastic desert golf experience in the shadow of Red Mountain, Four Peaks and Superstitions.
As co-designer Ben Crenshaw said when talking about Saguaro: “this piece of land has some very interesting natural movement to it. I think this golf course will be pretty unique for the desert. People will be induced to play different shots and find solutions to new challenges when playing this course.”
Interestingly, the three par fives on the scorecard at holes 4, 8 and 14 are rated stroke index 1, 3 and 2 respectively so length really does matter in this instance in terms of scoring difficulty. The last of the four par threes is also a tough hole when played from a back tee that measures all of 255 yards to the green.

Coore and Crenshaw Inc. was established in 1986, but five years passed before the partnership made a real architectural impact when the Plantation course at Kapalua burst onto the scene in 1991.
