We Ko Pa Golf Club
18200 Wekopa Way, Fort McDowell, AZ 85264
We Ko Pa is considered by many people and publications to be the #1 or #2 top public golf course in AZ and we can see why. This review is for the Saguaro course which some people prefer over Cholla but they should both be excellent. Greens, fairways, tee boxes and hazards were all in fantastic condition during our early May round. Many public courses in AZ start seeing the effects of summer heat by this point but it seems this course stays in excellent condition year round. The visual appeal is awesome with lots of varied vegetation and small wildlife. Mountains can be seen in the distance all around you with very few manmade objects to interrupt sightlines. Playability was also very good with varied holes, interesting designs, and other elements listed below. Clubhouse is large and high-end. Riding carts are top of the line with GPS.
Greens, fairways, and tee boxes all in excellent condition with little to improve. Some may prefer white sand in traps but they were still excellent.
Very interesting and unique hole designs with some great sand traps. Course was well balanced with a little more room than most public locations without being too easy. Great job on partial forced carry decision making along with hole visibility. Excellent tee box options.
As the score suggests this is a top notch example of a beautiful desert course with very little that could be improved. The entire course and facility was a visual treat.
