Course 1
  • Course Name: Faldo Championship
  • Course Description: Six-time major champion Nick Faldo has carved his signature into Arizona’s desert with his Faldo Championship Course at Wildfire Golf Club. Featuring generous fairways, the new Faldo design provides ample landing areas for the not-so-straight and narrow golf swing, keeping golfers out of the surrounding desert flora. The course’s unique bunkering is reminiscent of the great Australian sandbelt courses, featuring high flashing lips and faces. Every hole on the 6,846-yard, par 71 Faldo Course brings a memorable experience that golfers will not soon forget.

  • Course Name: Palmer Signature
  • Course Description: The Palmer Signature Course at Wildfire Golf Club delivers a target golf experience, while the expansive fairways allow golfers to remain in play even on an errant shot. The bunkering on the 7,145-yard, par 72 Arnold Palmer design is superb with four to six tee boxes on every hole, generously sized bent grass greens and sweeping fairways, which create an experience unlike any other. The golf course winds through the rugged Sonoran desert, offering stunning views of the McDowell Mountains, Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak, making it the perfect setting for golfers of all skill levels.
