We-Ko-Pa GC - Cholla Course
18200 East Toh Vee Circle, Fort McDowell

The Cholla Course at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club offers a dramatic test of golf that plays through shady arroyos, over desert ridges and amid some of the most picturesque Sonoran Desert on the planet. For this reason, Cholla is widely considered as one of the most pristine desert golf experiences in the Southwest with no homes or other development to spoil the sweeping views of the nearby river valleys, Red Mountain, Four Peaks and the rest of the majestic Superstition Mountains. The aesthetic charm of Cholla appeals to golfers just as much as its strategic challenge. Open for public play since December 2001 and designed by Scott Miller, Cholla has racked up a host of honors on its way to becoming one of Arizona’s most celebrated courses. In fact, the 7,225-yard layout was named by Sports Illustrated as one of the “10 best new public courses in the world” shortly after its debut. Since then, Zagat Survey 2007-2008 gave Cholla its highest rating among all Arizona courses. More recently, Golf Magazine listed it as No. 45 in its ranking of the “Top 100 You Can Play” for 2014. And in 2015, Golfweek bestowed Cholla with three prestigious rankings: 13th “Best Casino Courses” in the U.S.; 4th “Best Courses You Can Play” in Arizona; and No. 70 on the list of America’s “Best Resort Courses.”
