What else could be more picturesque and more perfect a golf vacation destination than one that is located amidst a sea of unspoilt desert, surrounded by majestic Arizona mountains, without the presence of the usual golf residences? Nothing. Nothing can top this scenic quality of the Cholla Course on We-Ko-Pa Golf Club in Arizona, all the more that it has a layout that was meant to inspire and challenge golfers of all playing handicaps, designed only by one of the most noted names in course design, Scott Miller.
The Cholla Course at the We-Ko-Pa Golf Club is a 7,225 yard 18-hole championship course at a par of 72. Together with its sister course, the Saguaro Course, they make up the newest and best golf facilities in Arizona that winds through the Sonoran desert with the Four Peaks, McDowell, Superstitions and the Red Mountains as its backdrop. The Cholla Course is dotted with cholla cacti from which it is named, and boasts of dramatic plays with more forced carries and few bunkers. The natural desert environment that the Cholla Course plays on is a feature that adds for both beauty and playability, something which makes golf trips hereabouts even more exciting.
Since it opened in 2001, the Cholla Course at the We-Ko-Pa Golf Club has had countless merits to its name. It was named one of the 10 Best Golf Courses in the World by Sports Illustrated shortly after it opened, and ranked highest in the Zagat survey of 2007-2008 for the best courses in Arizona. Nothing can definitely top Cholla’s unique offers of golf vacations that are breathtakingly beautiful, tastefully challenging, and perfect in the best possible ways a golf course can be.
