Was disappointed to find our golf bags still in their travel bags leaning against our cart. Considering what one pays to play here, we thought they'd be on the carts. We unpacked our bags, loaded them onto the cart and found someone to take our bags to store. No bottled water to be found, just plastic cups, no lids, that... More

The staff, host Professionals, everyone was so kind and accommodating during the weeks tournament. Great way to discover Quille and other eateries on premises. Tailored, clean, organized, easy access, simple directions and a standout server Alisa made for a " Fine Day." Arranging to play with friends in April as a result of the treatment we all received. 5 Star... More

This is a beautiful and challenging course. A bit expensive but the staff is exceptional and were able to manage our group quite well when they were also hosting the LPGA Founder's Cup. Greens are fast and scenery quite beautiful. Would love to play here again.

We played the front nine of each of the two courses because we were sharing the course with the LPGA Founders Cup Tournament. A professional quality golf course walking distance from your room at the JW Marriott!

Started with a Brunch at the restaurant. Meal was good but waitress forgot tea was ordered and "topped up" with coffee. Seemed a little confused. Golf was great. Superb practice facility/driving range with balls included Played Cattail course. Beautiful course, with a few water holes and lots of bunkers. In great condition in February. Greens were excellent, fairways beautifully manicured.... More

On our annual golf trip, my three neighbors and I just played 27 holes at Wildfire's Faldo course. We've played most of the courses in Arizona, including three more on this trip, and this was our first at Wildfire. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the course, the practice facility and the club/restaurant. Yes, the course has generous... More

Granted it's 40 minutes from the airport but- if you are staying at the JW Marriott and like golf - this is high quality desert golf. Greens are very fast and well manicured. The holes are interesting but only just so - there's only so many way to trick up a flat desert course.

Went to play golf on a return visit to beautiful Arizona. This course was one we were waiting to play, The pro shop staff were rude and we simply didn't want to spend any extra money despite the good selection. The specific problem? When we went back for our free same day replay, the pro shop employee said he wouldn't... More

Booked this online using a third party. They had our golf carts ready with name and tee time. The range was an awesome place to warm up. The putting green was a little slower then the greens in play. The course was in really good shape even for being there during the over seeding period. All the tee times where... More
