Troon was awesome!

My first time here and i will be back. (in the summer of course)

hooked up a hot deal on golf now for $50 and set a tee time for 12:20.

The course was absolutely beautiful and greens were perfect.

on the first hole, my gps on the cart was not working, or not loaded up. My playing partner hit the help button on his cart and within 3 minutes on of the friendly staff members had a new cart to me and helped transfer all my stuff over.

(now that's what i call service!) i could easily get used to this!....lol

the pace of play was good, there was a Pepsi tour tourn. with a few groups in front of our twosome.

we caught up to them and went back and played 1 hole over. the rest of the round was decent speed and i was happy to relax and just enjoy the beauty.

the course seemed to be very playable and no real surprises or blind shots.

the greens rolled as good as any i have ever played.

the fairways were plush and just the right height for nice lies for the irons.

it was 105 degrees, but a small breeze every once in a while seemed to take some of the heat off.

i will be back for sure to try the other 18 holes.

thank you Troon!

The Monument course at Troon North has a wide variety holes, and the scenery is spectacular!

They were getting ready to shut the course down for several months to rebuild the greens, and it was still in great shape. Can't wait until they reopen it!

I would highly recommend the course to anyone who appreciates quality golf golf experiences.

Fantastic golf course. Very fast greens with severe undulation in some. Great views and elevation changes make this course awesome. Lots of wildlife on the course. Friendly staff except for a marshall who complained about our slow play even though we had no one behind us for a hole and a half all day. Would recommend this course to anyone.

One of the most difficult things about playing golf at the Monument Course is all the distractions from nature and the way that Tom Weiskopf has rearranged the thousands of huge boulders to create a masterpiece of desert golf.

The only downside is that everyone wants to play here. On a Friday morning, we had a 6:30 tee time and were the first group off. The managers decided to double book the tee sheet

because there was also a big tournament starting at noon.

We made great time, the course was in pristine condition, and everybody was enjoying themselves when we ran into the extra bookers on hole #11. This group was staffed with

some serious duffers and our pace of play came to a screeching stall.

There are many classic short par fours here that are designed to eat your lunch. They are short but so deceptively difficult. The par fives seemed easy and were reached in regulation.

The drivable par four, Canyon Pass is 283 yards from the gold tee box. The tee is elevated high

above a tiny green in a bowl surrounded by boulder outcroppings on both sides. Neither gold tee golfer came close, they both wound up in the left desert.

The #16 hole Lone Mountain is way over 100 feet above the green. The distance from the copper tees is 213 yards and most of this is carry.

The greens are putting true but you can be easily tricked into giving away the hole. They

are set to be replaced this year because of some poa annua infestation. This morning they were rolling.

What an impressive golf course, this is my favorite in Phoenix so far.

This is one spectacular course worth playing at least once. How they carve this course through the desert with gorgeous mountains and million-dollar homes surrounding it, I don't know. You had no clue that there was another hole close by until you got up on the next teebox and saw the next challenge!

One complaint would be that the greens were definitely damaged a bit, but were fair and challenging. My biggest complaint was the pace of play was horrible. Had to wait on every tee-box.

With that being said, I will definitely look forward to playing the course when I'm back in Scottsdale.

This place is set up to maximize revenue. Put as many people on the course as possible and deliver poor customer service at a premium price. It's probably worth a call to the pro shop to see if the course is being used that day for multiple tournaments and events. Unfortunately we arrived when it was total chaos because they had back to back shotguns. Front desk person was flat and unfriendly. Golf attendants were very busy and ignored us so we found our cart and the practice range where there were no available spots, mostly because they didn't set up the space. Play was extremely slow and when we asked the ranger what was going on, he said we should expect a 5 hour round and didn't really get why we were irritated. Frankly, the pace was in excess of a five hour round. This course doesn't come back around to the club house after 9 holes, so take advantage of the bathrooms on the course. Cart lady came around once on a hot day. We left after 14 holes. The two others we were paired with left after 12 holes.

An absolutely wonderful Arizona morning saw us tee off at 7.40 sharp. Every hole was so individual and we felt we could have been the only golfers on the course. Each hole is so well sculptured but so unforgiving if wayward of the often tight fairways.

I played Troon North two days back to back, Monument, then Pinnacle. The experience was close to perfect, from the moment you enter the property until you leave. Not sure I've ever played a course in better condition. I'm an 8 hdcp...the Monument was maybe a little more scenic, but if felt the Pinnacle was a little more enjoyable to play. Will definitely play here again if in Phoenix.

Many courses have a reputation of greatness or excellence as did Troon. Many don't live up to their reputation. Troon met or exceeded all my expectations and hope to play it again someday. Beautiful, well maintained, landscaped course. Greens were on the fast side but the ran true. Highly recommended.

Just an awesome place to play golf. Yes, you are paying good money to play, but the course conditions, staff, beautiful scenery, and overall experience is top class.

Everyone on the staff makes sure you are taken care of. I can't emphasize this enough. This is how you would want to be treated.

The course is prefect green and the grass is extremely well kept. I found the greens quick, but not ridiculous. The design of the course is nice. The location and scenery is just incredible.

I have played many of the great courses in the world, and I would rate Troon North right up there with all of them. It's just a wonderful experience.

I even got to talk briefly with Alice Cooper, who is a golf nut and friendly. He still pushes the Callaway gear.

This is one of the courses that should be on everyone's bucket list. You won't be disappointed.
