Tee off amidst awe-inspiring mountain views at Wildfire Golf Club. Located within our Desert Ridge resort, the club's two championship courses were designed by golf legends Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo and 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 a slight variation from the typical desert-theme courses. It features generous fairways, large greens and multiple tee boxes. The surrounding mountains and century-old cacti as well as 108 sand bunkers.

The resort's courses continue to be proud award recipients. Just after opening, The Arizona Republic selected 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 a very scenic experience. The expansive fairways allow the player 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.
