We-Ko-Pa Golf Club (Cholla Course)

The Cholla Course at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club serves as a valuable amenity to the community at the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and compliments the success of the existing casino and resort. Since its opening, the Cholla Course has been considered by many to be one of the best golf courses in Arizona.

This unique design by Scott Miller offers a "core-style" layout, playing a 72-par and presenting a wide range of playing lengths from 7,225 from the back tees to 5,289 yards from the front tees, allowing it to cater to players of all calibers.

Dramatic on-site features including a variety of lush vegetation, natural drainage corridors and unique topographic conditions make the site ideally suited for a spectacular golf venue. Scott's skillful routing of the course was arranged to capture the site's pristine panoramic vistas, including the McDowell Mountains, Red Mountain, the Verde River and the Matazal Mountains, which are highlighted by the prominence of the often snow-capped Four Peaks formation, further enhancing the natural beauty of the site.

The final and possibly most important characteristic of the project is its lack of surrounding land uses, which will allow this venue to be a perpetual native Sonoran Desert retreat.
