Golf Resort Overview: The Wigwam

An Interview With Mark Conn, Golf Sales Manager

By Brian Weis


The ultimate golf vacation is staying and playing at a golf resort. Below is an interview with Mark Conn who shares some valuable information about staying and golfing at The Wigwam.

Give our readers an overview of the golf resort.
This Arizona treasure was established in the 1930s, a time when golf courses did not get built through dense housing developments, and certainly not with tight, target fairways. At The Wigwam, the golf courses have remained at the top of the list. This jewel of the desert is among the Southwest's last remaining golf resorts built for a pure golf experience. Canals, streams and lakes cascade through the journey. The shadows cast on greens and bunkers are from majestic parkland trees, not multi-story resort buildings.

The Wigwam's three 18-hole championship golf courses offer a diversity that cannot be matched by any other Arizona resort. Here, the golf enthusiast has their pick of not just one or two courses, but three 18-hole courses - 54 holes of championship golf including two courses designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones, Sr. And, in true Wigwam style, each course - The Gold, Patriot and Heritage offers a unique challenge that adds spice and variety to one's stay at this timeless and relaxing retreat.

For guests that truly love the game of golf, The Wigwam features a variety of golf packages to entice every traveler, from family getaways to golf-intensive buddy trips.
