Golf Course Review Wildfire Golf Club PALMER Phoenix Arizona
Reviewed by: sdscratchorbust, Scottsdale
Since the ladies didn’t tear it up I’d figure I’d splurge for the $100 twilight and play Wildfire Palmer last Saturday at 2:30. I needed to clear my head and was able to walk solo and enjoy a beautiful day in Phoenix.
Following the cancellation of Founders the course has been let go a tad from tour level. The greens, tee boxes, and bunkers are still mint carpet. When they properly fill and level all bunkers for pro events it really shows. I felt like hitting in the front right greenside bunker a lot that day. The bunkers’ depth and consistency were amazing. Helps explain how the pros can be so precise out the bunkers. The fairways were starting to dry but still 9/10. No longer pro carpet. The rough wasn’t being maintained and wasn’t a consistent dormant Bermuda (Obviously nitpicking)
This is a really fun course. At the end of the day it’s still a resort course. While no pushover there isn’t much danger to get into here. I always love playing here. I feel it’s a tad over priced. But It’s convenient and always top notch service and never overcrowded.
