    Snow is over-rated. 

    Sunshine, on the other hand, deserves every accolade it garners, especially from those of us choosing to flock south of the 49th Parallel, away from the cold winter climes of Canada.

    One of the best spots to sample life in the sun is just outside of the metropolis of Phoenix, at Litchifield Park’s Wigwam Resort, situated in a location that puts you smack-dab in the midst of all sorts of recreational activities.

    What awaits your presence is a wealth of outdoor activities including, of course, golf. The Wigwam offers up 54-holes of challenge on their three courses, the re-designed Gold Course, its baby sister The Patriot, and finally, The Heritage.

  • At Wigwam Resort, There’s Golf... And A Whole Lot More

    by Gord Montgomery

    While on a family vacation, someone’s significant other at some point and time has more than likely uttered the phrase, “Man can’t live on golf alone, dear.” 

    Well, if that in fact is true, then I have some other options to consider — tennis, baseball, NASCAR, hockey, basketball, football, fighter jets and yeah OK, more golf.

    You see, in the greater-Phoenix, AZ area, there is no better home away from home than to set up shop at the wonderfully appointed Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park, in the West Valley.

  • The WM Phoenix Open - 'The Greatest Show On Grass'

    by Bryan Outram, Inside Golf

    If attending a major sporting event is in your travel vacation plans anytime in the near future you couldn't do better than making that event the PGA TOUR’s 'Party in the Desert' - the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

    The PGA TOUR has worked hard in its efforts over the last few years to maintain purse levels and the Waste Management group came through in 2010 to help make the long-historied Phoenix Open truly an oasis in a desert of fast drying up sponsorships.

    Taking place as a rule on the first weekend in February there are often Super Bowl festivities surrounding the tournament making it an even crazier shindig, especially if the big game happens to be held in Phoenix as it was in 2009 and is again this coming February 4th, 2015.

  • Ambiente GC Offers A Breath Of Fresh Air In Arizona

    by Jim Claggett

    Golf courses, for the most part, can be viewed as works in progress.

    There always seems to be something which can be changed from the original design in order to improve the look or simply to keep up with technology as players continue to hit the ball further and sometimes straighter.

  • Las Sendas: A Phoenix Rising

  • Take Notah: Begay's Sewailo Course An Oasis In Southwest Tucson

    by Jim Claggett

    Designing a golf course which appeals to the entire golfing community is one of those 'you can't please everyone' types of propositions.

    The latest creation from relatively new course designer Notah Begay fits into that category but the asterisk beside this one is the fact he has taken the building of a golf course in another direction.
