Big Wick Named Top Course in the U.S.

Golfers have spoken! Wickenburg Ranch Golf & Social Club’s Big Wick Course received top honors from Golf Advisor, the leading authority of golf course ratings and reviews by golfers, for golfers. In the website’s list of best courses of 2017, Big Wick was voted No. 1 in the United States for course conditions, No. 1 golf course in Arizona, and No. 9 overall in a ranking of the Top 50 Courses in the U.S.

Golf Advisor’s community of golfers share their first-hand knowledge of courses across the globe to help other golfers decide where to tee off next. Gold Advisor received more than 144,000 golf course ratings and reviews from our golfer community in 2018, and 2,800 U.S. courses received enough reviews to be considered for their list.

According to Golf Advisor, course scores are based on a combination of the star-ratings of their value, conditions, layout, pace of play, friendliness and off-course amenities. To be considered for Golf Advisor’s best-of rankings, courses need at least ten reviews throughout the year.

“We are honored that Big Wick is ranked on these Golf Advisor lists,” said Bill Brownlee, a development partner in Wickenburg Ranch and a co-designer of the Big Wick. “We artfully designed both courses to ensure that Wickenburg Ranch is among the state’s most enjoyable and elite golf experiences, and our presence on these lists is proof of that.”

The Golf & Social Club is the heart and soul of the Wickenburg Ranch community. Since opening in 2015, the 18-hole, par-71 championship course has received a number of awards, including being named No. 4 on Golf Digest’s list of “Top 10 Best New Courses in North America” in 2015, named a “Top 5 Best Courses to Play in Arizona” by Golfweek in 2017 and No. 94 on Golfweek’s 2018 list of “Best Residential Courses in the U.S.”
