Nick Faldo, winner of three Masters and three British opens, says that this course is not reminiscent of other Arizona layouts, saying that he wants his courses to have rhythm and flow, with more bark than bite. He has certainly done a fine job on the newest 18-hole course, the Faldo Course, located directly adjacent to the Palmer Course. The par 71 layout sits on a 174-acre site, and offers a slight variation from typical Sonoran Desert-theme courses. It features generous fairways, large bent grass greens and tee boxes. The surrounding mountains and century-old saguaro cacti as well as 106 sand bunkers, reminiscent of the Australian sand belt courses, provide a spectacular setting for the golf course and golfing guests.
Wildfire Golf Club also offers state-of-the-art practice facilities for our playing guests, including an all-grass driving range, putting and chipping greens, and a fairway bunker. In addition, there is indoor and outdoor seating with complete food and beverage service, as well as a golf shop with a distinctive array of men’s and women’s golfing equipment and apparel.
“I am confident that the course will inspire golfers of all levels to improve their game. Most of all, my hope is that everyone who plays the course will be enchanted and thrilled by a unique golf experience.” – Nick Faldo
