Wildfire Golf Club, a certified member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, is the desert gem of Phoenix and Scottsdale’s golf courses offering exciting play as well as an unparalleled Arizona getaway.

Home to the Nick Faldo and Arnold Palmer championship courses, Wildfire Golf Club is located in the picturesque setting of the Sonoran desert featuring century-old Saguaro cacti and sweeping views of the McDowell Mountains, providing a spectacular setting for golfers.

The par 71 Faldo Championship Course was designed by three-time Masters and three-time British Open champion Nick Faldo. It features a total of 6,846 yards, generous fairways and ample landing areas, keeping golfers out of the surrounding desert flora. The Faldo Course offers stunning views of the McDowell Mountains, Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak.

The 7,145-yard, par-72 Palmer Signature Course, designed by Arnold Palmer, offers scenic and expansive fairways allowing the ball to remain in play even on an errant shot. Situated in the rugged Sonoran desert, the course meanders through picturesque arroyos with spectacular saguaro cacti. Five different tee markers allow guests to test their game and improve their range.

Wildfire Golf Club features state-of-the-art practice facilities, including a driving range, putting and chipping greens and a greenside practice bunker.

The two courses of Wildfire Golf Club are an integral part of the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa, named one of Travel & Leisure Golf’s “World’s Best Golf Resorts” and voted one of the “Top 75 Resorts in North America” by Condé Nast Traveler readers.
