WeKoPa Saguaro Golf Course Information
The immense popularity and success of the Cholla course was the “father of the idea” to create yet another unique golf experience at We-Ko-Pa. The internationally renowned design team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw was engaged to create the Saguaro course in 2005 and 2006 with the intention of providing a completely different look and feel than the Cholla course.
Their respect and enthusiasm of the natural beauty of our desert was evidenced by the fact they continuously walked the land of the new golf site for two months in an effort to locate the most desirable green sites before deciding upon their routing plan. They ultimately decided upon the present day routing plan because it afforded them a front nine loop moving clockwise and a back nine that played in a counter-clockwise motion moving in and out of the hundreds of large Saguaro cacti that dominate this site.
Saguaro is yet another excellent example of Coore and Crenshaw’s design philosophy that the “lay of the land” dictates their end result because they moved less than 25,000 cubic yards of material to create 68 acres of turf grass that plays to a championship yardage of less than 7,000 yards.

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.
