Wildfire Golf Club at JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa is honoring America’s military men and women by providing active, reserve and retired military personnel with discounted golf fees.  The “Fairway Furloughs” program offers golfers in the military a discounted $59 rate now through April at Wildfire Golf Club, nearly a 70 percent savings off the normal rate, when they play after noon any day of the week. The golf rate is $49 May through June and just $29 in the summer months of July, August and September. Wildfire Golf Club, which is situated in the Sonoran desert of northeast Phoenix, features two picturesque 18-hole courses designed by two of golf’s greatest legends — Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo. Surrounding both courses are the majestic McDowell Mountains and century-old Saguaro cacti, providing a magnificent setting for golfers. The 7,145-yard, par 72 Palmer course is situated in the rugged Sonoran desert and meanders though scenic arroyos.
