3 Great Golf Courses To Play In Scottsdale, Arizona

These three must-play golf courses are all located within a 30 minute drive from TPC Scottsdale.

If you’re in the Scottsdale, Arizona area to watch (or work at) the Waste Management Phoenix Open, and you have some free time for a quick nine (or 18), then this post may interest you.

Here are 3 championship golf courses to play. All are immaculate and challenging. None you will regret.

Grayhawk Golf Club

Grayhawk is a 36-hole facility with two unique 18 hole tracks – Raptor and Talon courses. The Raptor is considered its signature course, and was home to the PGA Tour’s Open. Both championship courses offer great challenge, magnificent views and pristine conditions.

Where: Scottsdale, Arizona
Minutes From TPC Stadium: 10 Minutes, 4 miles
Architect: Tom Fazio, 1995 (Raptor); David Graham and Gary Pank, 1994 (Talon)

Troon North Golf Club

Widely considered the best public golf course in the greater Phoenix/Scottsdale area, Troon North Golf Club is also a 36 hole facility with two unique 18s – the Pinnacle and Monument. The views of famous Pinnacle Peak at both courses are breathtaking.

Where: Scottsdale, Arizona
Minutes From TPC Stadium: 20 Minutes, 10 miles
Architect: Jay Morrish, Tom Weiskopf, 1990 (Monument), 1995 (Pinnacle)

We-Ko-Pa Golf Club

The final pick is another 36 hole facility (sense a trend?) located in what’s called the Valley region. The two 18-hole courses are the Cholla and Saguaro – both offering near-perfect conditions with some of the most awesome of views of the Sonran Desert.

Where: McDowell, Arizona
Minutes From TPC Stadium: 30 Minutes, 17 miles
Architect: Tom Fazio, 1995 (Raptor); David Graham and Gary Pank, 1994 (Talon)
