Tee off amidst awe-inspiring mountain views and lush fairways at Wildfire Golf Club. Located within the expansive JW Marriott® Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa, the club's two championship courses were designed by golf legends Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo to highlight Arizona's incredible natural beauty.

The Faldo Championship Course

The Faldo Championship Course, which plays up to 6,846 yards, sits on a 174-acre site and offers an inspired variation of the typical desert-themed courses. Featuring generous fairways, large greens, 108 sand bunkers and multiple tee boxes, the surrounding mountains and century-old cacti become a stunning backdrop for a championship round.

The resort's courses continue to be proud award recipients, beginning with The Arizona Republic selecting the #2 hole on the Faldo Championship Course as one of the ultimate 18 holes in the Valley.

The Palmer Signature Course

The Palmer Signature Course plays up to 7,145 yards, providing an unmatched scenic golfing experience. The expansive fairways allow golfers to remain in play even on an errant shot. The flashed bunkering on Palmer is superb and the putting greens carry plenty of undulation, like many Arnold Palmer designs.
