Golf Vacation Insider Honors We-Ko-Pa as one of Best Golf & Casino Resorts of 2016

Golf and a Little “Wagering” are Par For the Course!

Around the time the first Scot took a whack at a pebble with a bent stick, golfers have been placing wagers on who will come out on top. Gaming and golf have joined at the hip ever since.

While most play We-Ko-Pa for the incredible golf on Cholla and Saguaro – with or without anything riding on it – they’re also welcome to try their luck at the Fort McDowell Casino, located a par 5 away from the club.
