Tee Off at Wildfire Golf Club

Ignite Your Game at Wildfire Golf Club

Tee of amidst awe-inspiring mountain views and lush fairways at Wildfire Golf Club - proud host of the LPGA Founders Cup - featuring two picturesque 18-hole championship courses designed by two of golf's greatest legends - Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo. 

The Faldo Championship Course which plays up to 6,846 yards, sits on a 174-acre site and offers an inspired variation of the typical desert-themed courses. Featuring generous fairways, large greens, 108 sand bunkers and multiple tee boxes, the surrounding mountains and century-old cacti become a stunning backdrop for a championship round.

The Palmer Signature Course plays up to 7,145 yards, providing an unmatched scenic golfing experience. The expansive fairways allow golfers to remain in play even on an errant shot. The flashed bunkering on Palmer is superb, and the putting greens carry plenty of undulation, like many Arnold Palmer designs.
