It’s time to add another No. 1 ranking to the already impressive list of awards and accolades at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club.

As Arizona’s ultimate golf experience, it sits just outside Scottsdale. The most recent addition comes from none other than PHOENIX Magazine, the readers of which named We-Ko-Pa Golf Club as the “Best Golf Course [facility]” in their annual Best of the Valley awards. In total, more than 400,000 online ballots were cast in hundreds of categories from dining to experiences and, of course, golf, to determine the reader’s choice for the best in the Valley of the Sun.

“The entire staff here at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club is determined to provide the absolute best golf experience we can offer,” said Matt Barr, general manager of We-Ko-Pa Golf Club. “It’s always wonderful to hear that the commitment from our team has translated into a number-one ranking in the Valley’s leading lifestyle publication. More importantly, it’s a number-one ranking from real golfers. We’re honored.”

There are many reasons why Phoenicians and visitors alike adore We-Ko-Pa Golf Club enough to name it the best in the city, but here are three common themes that propel We-Ko-Pa to number-one status.

Unspoiled—No Distractions

You won’t find any homes, roads, houses, or anything but the picture-perfect Sonoran Desert at either of We-Ko-Pa’s golf courses. In fact, the only thing other than the fairway and the pin flag you’ll find during your round not indigenous to the surrounding area is the beverage cart.

Unrivaled—True Value

There are a number of top-tier golf courses here in Scottsdale, but We-Ko-Pa is the only golf facility in the area that truly matches the value players expect. Pound for pound and dollar for dollar, We-Ko-Pa is the best bang for the buck in town.

Unbelievable—Immaculate Conditions

Both courses at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club—Cholla and Saguaro—are always in incredible shape. Winter, summer, ryegrass, bermudagrass, rain, shine, tidal wave, whatever—We-Ko-Pa always looks amazing.
