There are many things that make the Faldo Course at the Wildfire Golf Club stand out amongst its neighboring courses in Arizona. For one, it is designed by a three-time Master’s and three-time British Open Champion – Nick Faldo, from whom it was named after. Two, it has 106 bunkers. Three, it sits on a beautiful golf vacation destination in Wildfire Golf Club at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa, standing next to an equally outstanding Arnold Palmer course. Nowhere else in the entire state of Arizona can these qualities be combined except at the Faldo course.
The medium length, 18-hole, par-71 course stretches to 6,846 yards of golf. Its most prominent feature is its 106 bunkers that are all over The Faldo Course at the Wildfire Golf Club. That, set on the flattish desert terrain of this side of the desert gives the course an edge to every play. The links-like effect of the flat ground sets it apart from its neighboring courses, and the many bunkers on the course gives it an Australian sand-belt feel to it. The golf vacation package is completed by the breathtaking views of the McDowell Mountains that serve as its backdrop.
A golf trip to the Faldo Course at the Wildfire Golf Club is capped off at the Resort and Spa. The most outstanding quality of the Faldo Course, perhaps, lies in its totality. It is a desert course – complete with all the visual delights of the Sonoran desert, but it gives a links/sand belt vibe to the game. It combines fun and challenge in just the right amount in its fairly challenging layout that can be enjoyed by golfers of various handicaps, and it concludes the game with a relaxing round at the Resort and Spa.
