“Number 1 in the Top 25 U.S. Courses Rated by Conditions” – Golf Advisor | 2017

The headline says it all! The 18-hole, par-71 championship course known as Big Wick, was diligently designed to be top notch, and Golf Advisor agrees naming it one of the Best Golf Courses in the U.S. The course is perfectly placed within the rolling hills outside of Wickenburg, Arizona. With immaculately manicured greens, lush fairways, and challenging play, the course offers an elite golfing experience that would impress even the most sophisticated golfers.

Playing from just under 4,500 yards at the forward tees to more than 7,000 yards from the championship tees, the artfully crafted collection of six par 3s, five par 5s, and seven par 4s pass through canyons and arroyos which offer views of Vulture Peak and Prescott National Forest. The elevation and relatively mild summer temperatures in Wickenburg allow the Big Wick course to grow and maintain Bentgrass greens year-round. Those familiar with Bentgrass know what a tremendous difference it makes in putting surface quality and is the best grass that most public players will ever have the chance to play on.

“It’s artfully designed holes showcase vistas of Vulture Peak and the Prescott National Forest, each a chapter in a larger story, with varying distances, compass directions, and skill requirements woven into the experience.” – Arizona Golfer | 2015

With a thrilling design, exceptional Bentgrass greens, and generous 10-minute tee time intervals, Big Wick is unlike any other golf course in Arizona.
