Golf Outing

Join us for an afternoon golf outing on the Wigwam’s most popular 18 holes.  Built in 1972, the iconic Red Course is a traditional layout lined with pine and eucalyptus trees.  Its wide fairways lead to generous-sized greens while streams and ponds meander throughout the course bringing water into play on ten holes.  The course’s closing stretch of Holes 15, 16, 17 and 18 just may be the toughest final four holes in the Phoenix area.  Designed by Arizona Golf Hall of Fame member and golf course architect Robert “Red” Lawrence (nicknamed the “Desert Fox”), this par 72 – 6,852-yard course is the perfect setting for this year’s industry scramble under the warm West Valley desert sun.

Per person registration charge includes greens and cart fee, box lunch, and drink tickets.  Club rentals are available for an added fee.  Full foursome and individual registrations welcome.
