Big Wick's thrilling design, exceptional conditioning, and thorough commitment to excellence make it one of the most envied golf courses in the state, earning its place on Golf Digest's Top Ten Best New Golf Course in North America and No. 4 Best New Course in the US in 2015, and No. 1 Top Courses in Arizona by Golf Advisor in 2020 as well as No. 1 in the Top 25 U.S. Courses Rated by Conditions by Golf Advisor in 2017.
Crafted under the watchful eyes of two passionate stewards of the game, Bill Brownlee with M3 Companies and Wendell Pickett with Greey | Pickett, Wickenburg Ranch was groomed and refined for seven years to ensure maximum playability, shot values, and enjoyment. The 18-hole, par-71 championship course known as Big Wick, was diligently designed to be top notch, and Golf Advisor agrees, naming it one of the Best Golf Courses in the U.S. The course is perfectly placed within the rolling hills outside of Wickenburg, AZ. With immaculately manicured greens, lush fairways and challenging play, the course offers an elite golfing experience that would impress event the most sophisticated golfers.
The championship course known as Big Wick, took seven years to groom and refine for the ultimate game of golf. Playing from just under 4,500 yards at the forward tees to more than 7,000 yards from the championship tees, the artfully crafted collection of six par 3s, five par 5s, and seven par 4s pass through canyons and arroyos which offer views of Vulture Peak and Prescott National Forest. The elevation and relatively mild summer temperatures in Wickenburg allow the Big Wick course to grown and maintain Bentgrass greens year-round. Those familiar with Bentgrassknow what a tremendous difference it makes in putting surface quality and is the best grass that most public players will ever have the chance to play on. Each hole tells a larger story with varying distances and skill requirements woven into the experience.

Course Access Reminder:
As we head into longer days and with the addition of new members to the community every day, we want to remind all members in regards to golf course access. The golf course is limited to golfers only. For your safety and the safety of all members, we ask that you refrain from accessing the course unless checked in to play the course, and any walking, jogging, biking, etc. should utilize the many WR Trail paths. We have signage posted at certain access points, specifically off of Wickenburg Ranch Way, reminding all of these guidelines, so please make note of these areas. This is even more critical during course closure days as we spray applications on the course, and any unauthorized traffic could be detrimental to the turf. In addition, we recently added Stop signs at all Wickenburg Ranch Way cart crossing areas, cautioning carts as they proceed across the road, and new yellow cart crossing signs were installed on Wickenburg Ranch Way to caution vehicles of cart crossings. Please remember to use caution as you approach these areas in your carts or in your vehicles.
