WeKoPa Cholla Golf Course Information
The Cholla course was designed and built in 2000 and 2001 by noted golf course architect Scott Miller who tutored for ten years as a design associate with the Jack Nicklaus Design firm before starting his own design firm in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1988.
It was Scott who selected a tract of land that is dominated by a series of natural desert washes that originate in the nearby McDowell Mountains. And it is within these washes that Scott chose to route the majority of his golf holes either “up or down” these native waterways and displayed an amazing imagination in moving some 500,000 + cubic yards of material to create the wonderful course we enjoy today.
It is a testimonial to Scott that any and all of the landforms his team built have been so expertly created that a stranger playing the course today is unable to distinguish them from nature itself. And it is within the unique environment of these lower elevations that the player is able to view and truly experience the many and varied forms of native desert plant life such as the cacti, creosote, brittle bush and the Mesquite and Palo Verde trees. While the Cholla course can play to a demanding championship length of 7240 yards, the other four sets of available tee boxes and the 84 acres of manicured turf grass, allow for a multiple of options if a player so chooses to avoid the “heroic path” that constantly tempts each player.

Four of us used Fox Golf for a 5 day golf tour of Majorca. The tour was a huge success and we are grateful to James for his efforts. He pays great attention to detail and this combined with his extensive knowledge of the golf courses and restaurants on the island ensured a smooth and highly enjoyable trip. Fox Golf are recommended!
Over the last few years my experience with Fox Golf has been first rate. Each trip has been superbly organised, overseen and managed directly by James. All golfing and social itineraries have been carefully tailored and expertly judged. And all logistics have run smoothly, without fault, so no moment is wasted and maximum fun can be had throughout. I would thoroughly recommend Fox Golf for any corporate event or personal trip with friends.
Fox Golf organised a trip for eight members from Royal Cinque Ports in April 2015. It was a great trip and brilliantly organised. James went out of his way to ensure every detail was catered for. We all had a great time both on and off the course. I can give no higher recommendation than to say if we go back we will ask James to do it all again for us. 10 out of 10.
