We-Ko-Pa Golf Club was recently recognized by Men’s Journal as the No. 1 public golf property in Arizona in the publication’s recent “The Best Golf Courses in All 50 States: Where to Tee It Up in America” rankings list. The publication considered their rankings roundup as “an anthology of resort courses, daily fee links, casino tracks, and munis from the Maine woods to the Arizona desert, the Oregon coastline to the Last Frontier.”

Men’s Journal had this to say about We-Ko-Pa Golf Club

From Men’s Journal:

Scottsdale, AZ is the heartbeat of desert golf, but the Grand Canyon State’s best one-two punch is a casino course combo thirty minutes northeast on Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation land. Most of We-Ko-Pa’s well-deserved love goes to the Saguaro Course, a Coore/Crenshaw blueprint that naturally unspools in the majestic Arizona landscape. Both it and its sister course, Cholla, offer players unbroken views of multiple mountain ranges—the Superstitions, McDowells, and Mazatzals to name a few.

“We-Ko-Pa Golf Club is a true gem in the Arizona golf landscape and we are honored to be recognized as the best,” said President Burnette of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation. “We are proud to offer such a world-class golf experience to our guests and we look forward to welcoming even more visitors to Fort McDowell and its incredibly successful enterprises.”
