The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community has built two uniquely divergent courses; golfers looking for wide-open links will be as content as those looking for traditional tree-lined doglegs.

Nice Course

While staying at the Talking Stick we played at the course. The staff is friendly, the course is well kept for being in the AZ heat.

Played the North course, not as pretty as TPC or Troon North but a good challenging course. Deep bunkers, stay out of them if you can. Played the forward tees to avoid the carries. Enjoyed the round, but not as challenging as Troon North nor as exciting to play as TPC Stadium. All in all a good round. The staff... More

Played both the North and South courses. Not a short course but well designed and fast greens. Clubhouse staff friendly and helpful. Free range balls and practice area prior to play. Sand traps as expected and playable. North course better than the South.

Close to other attractions, course was in great shape. Very forgiving fairways but challenging from any set of tees. Don't hit out of the desert unless you don't mind dinging your clubs, lots of hidden stones. Greens rolled about 11, so not too fast but fair and tough to read. Played the North Course and will return to try the... More

We played the North Course recently and it was well maintained. The layout and play itself was boring and not challenging. I would play it again, but as a practice round for a more exciting course.

Very nice golf course, well maintained. Good service by the staff. Would most definitely visit again. We were with a large group and the coordination of our tournament was on point.

Two friends and I played at Talking Stick (north course) as part of our spring training get away. The fairways and greens were in excellent shape, although surprisingly the greens weren't nearly as fast as they appeared. The fairways are open, and even errant shots can be located for the most part. I might have lost one or two balls,... More

As it was an extremely hot day we were very surprised that carts didn't come with bottles of water. Every other course we played had water bottles. Extremely slow play with no visible ranger. Nice course but not picture worthy.

I am a golf and travel writer and have played golf all around the greater Phoenix area. While I may be be a bit more critical than most when it comes to golf courses I do try to be fair with my reviews. This trip I played the North course and my overall rating would be AVERGAE. The conditions were... More
