With a rich history dating back to 1929, The Wigwam is the only Arizona resort with three 18-hole championship golf courses – The Gold, The Blue and The Red. As such, Wigwam Golf caters to a diverse mix of play, including resort guests, member play from 500-plus members, and outside/daily-fee play which makes up approximately 70 percent of total rounds. In addition, the club hosts numerous charity, junior golf and collegiate events throughout the year. With such a wide range of consumers to serve, The Wigwam golf shop is consistently focused on the latest trends in clothing and accessories, while also featuring the hottest golf equipment and hardgoods.

In 2019, The Wigwam’s golf shop was renovated with hardwood floors added, walls painted and small “concept shops” created within the shop.  In creating the concept shops, The Wigwam partnered with major vendors including Adidas, Travis Mathew and FootJoy to brand the shop, offset costs and make shopping easier for consumers. Highly regarded buyer and merchandiser Laura Saiki was also brought on to merchandise the shop and order goods. This increased attention to better merchandising has been successful for the club.

Wigwam Golf is a highly rated amenity of The Wigwam Resort, a 440-acre oasis resort nestled in the West Valley of Phoenix, Ariz.  Wigwam Golf features two golf courses designed by legendary course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. (Gold and Blue) and the Robert “Red” Lawrence-designed Red Course. Plus, unlike many desert golf courses found throughout the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, The Wigwam’s Gold, Blue and Red courses are all true parkland courses with parallel fairways and greens, which makes finding your ball easier and your round more enjoyable.
