If you know We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, you know it’s a bucket-list course for any golfer. But even if you’re a frequent flyer of We-Ko-Pa’s two award-winning courses, you might not know of another adventure you need to immediately add to your bucket list – Sami’s Amethyst Mine.
We all remember the days where we could wake up, roll out of bed and hit the first tee without fear of pulling a hammy. But for most of us, those days are gone and we need to take our pre-round warmup seriously.

Give this routine a try and you’ll thank us later.
Social media has changed the way we communicate. The tradition of chatting with guests across the golf shop counter is just so 20th century.

The responses to the recent renovation of Cholla are a great example. We couldn’t be more pleased with the steady stream of positive feedback since reopening in late October.
We saw the writing on the wall the day Cyber Sunday overshadowed Black Friday.

“The We-Ko-Pass and Peaks Pass are ideal for avid golfers who would like to play all year long, not just when the rates are the lowest in the heat of summer,” said Matt Barr, general manager of We-Ko-Pa Golf Club. “And best of all, passholders may bring their three golf buddies with them for the same low rate.”
While most of the country is busy shoveling snow this December, We-Ko-Pa Golf Club is offering a one-of-a-kind golf experience thanks to our friends at Golf Digest.
Things are moving along smoothly just one month into the Cholla Course renovation project. We-Ko-Pa’s top-notch agronomy team completed the sprigging process for the greens on the front-9 and they are now moving on to the back nine this week.
