When a golf course is designed by a renowned course architect, it is almost always expected to be excellent. But when two noted course designers combine to create a genius of a creation in a location that’s anything but ordinary, nothing less than awesome and great is to be expected. This was the result when Ben Crenshaw teamed up with Bill Coore to create the Saguaro Course at the We-Ko-Pa Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, a fairly new course that’s all too easily becoming a premiere golf vacation favorite.
The Saguaro Course at the We-Ko-Pa Golf Club lives up to the standards and expectations set on it being a part of the top Arizona golfing facility and the reputation earned by its older counterpart in the golf club, the Cholla course. The 18-hole par-71 golf vacation destination plays on 6,912 yards. Like the Cholla course, the Saguaro course sits amidst golden desert sands and majestic Arizona mountains untarnished by the presence of golf club residences. It’s nothing but pure bliss and endless rounds of golf set in its natural desert environment, retaining its original terrain. It perfectly blends a good and challenging game with the natural scenery of the Arizona desert.
Because of this truly wonderful characteristic, the Saguaro Course at the We-Ko-Pa Golf Club was named one of the “Top 10 Best New Courses You Can Play in the US” by the GOLF Magazine in 2007 and Golfweek’s No. 1 Public Access Course in Arizona; not to mention, becoming famous among local and traveling golfers for golf trips. That, however, isn’t surprising. If two heads are naturally better than one, then it’s easy to know what to expect when two geniuses join forces.
