This course has beautiful fairways and greens in immaculate condition. However we were not allowed to drive on course due to grass seeding? Had a 15 minute late start and play was very slow, unable to finish last 4 holes. Course is long and boring, most every hole looks the same. a nice course but not what we were expecting.

Greens are like putting on glass. You really have to hit it short and let it run to the flag. Nice desert decor and even saw horses grazing nearby the hole. Don't play if the course is cart path only. We played North course in the afternoon. It had just finished being overseeded so you get no roll from drives... More

This is a very good course. However they have an infestation of mosquitos. I have never seen anything like this before anywhere. Unfortunately it does not appear they care about the problem. It is very hard to golf when you are being attacked on every shot. I hope someone hears this.

We appreciate all feedback that allows us to improve our operation. This issue was a rare and unique one in the AZ desert that followed a series of major storms. We have responded in many ways to address this challenge and, thankfully, the recent rare mosquito season was very short-lived. We’re sure if you were to return, and we hope... More

We played this course in August and found it to be in very good condition. The staff treated us like kings and the price was definitely right. We will be back.

Great golf course (36 holes) that can compete with any in the area. We played Troon North, TPC, The Boulders, and Talking Stick South. Enjoyed them all!! This course is great and the property with the casino/resort is a great atmosphere as well. We played the South course (North was closed for aerification). Had a great time. Even saw wild... More

Nice course and friendly staff. The course looks easier than it plays. Hazards are well placed. Maintenance was to be expected as it was mid-June in the desert. Overall its a nice value...

I had the opportunity to play Talking Stick North this week. The conditions of the golf course were excellent and the pace of play was much better than we expected, about 3:40. The North course is an excellent Ben Crenshaw design that opened about 10 years ago and now has become a very nice desert style course with adequate fairways... More
