Red Allen’s Bar & Grill Patio overlooks The Wigwam’s Gold and Blue golf courses. The restaurant’s relaxed vibe pairs nicely with an outstanding menu of delicious salads, sandwiches, burgers and a rotating selection of local craft beers. Named after the club’s head golf professional of 42 years, Red Allen’s is The Wigwam’s 19th hole and features four firepits, and seating for more than 120 guests. During the fall, winter and spring, meal covers on the patio average 550-plus per day.

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. Two courses were designed by legendary course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. (Gold and Blue), while Robert “Red” Lawrence designed the Red Course. Plus, unlike many desert golf courses found throughout the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, The Wigwam’s Gold, Blue and Redcourses are all true parkland courses with parallel fairways and greens, which makes finding your ball easier and rounds more enjoyable.
