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

I live here in metro Phoenix and play a fair amount of golf. This property, both courses, are among the best of the public places to play, and are probably my favorite local venue. I personally favor the South Course, but the North Course gets more publicity and has a great layout as well. Bring your "A game," and you'll... More

I am a beginner golfer. Played the South course with my husband and son and really enjoyed it! The course is in great shape...the greens were extremely short and challenging. The staff was very helpful! The mountain views were incredible..our pictures are breathtaking! Will definitely play Talking Stick again when we are in town!

First time playing golf in Arizona.Enjoyed this course a lot visiting from New Jersey. Majority of the holes had a great backdrop of the mountains. Back 9 was a lot harder then the front 9 especially when wind picked up. Would definitely play again. Pro shop staff was very helpful

Picked this course for a guys weekend of golf. Of three courses played by far it was the best. From the staff, facilities and course condition nothing could have been better. Another weekend planned for 2015 and this course is on the schedule.

My son and I came to Scottsdale for a father/son golf getaway for 5 days just to get away from the cold in Wisconsin. Perfect timing as the Midwest was having super cold temperatures and snow. Anyway, we landed in Phoenix at 11:00 am and had a tee time at Talking Stick North Course at 1:10 pm. We made it... More

So first of all this is a perfectly nice course. The staff were all very friendly, and we had a good time playing there. However, I really would not describe this course as anything other than a nice municipal golf course. I don't know how they get away charging as much as they do for such a "egh" experience. We...

Troon has managed these two 18 hole courses for many years, but a new company is taking over. The old team was terrific, but these courses are both beautiful, friendly resort courses with a great view from the terrace bar after golf We shall see about the changes and the new team The new discount card looks reasonably priced.
