This was my first experience at Troon North and I loved every minute of it. From the time I pulled up to the time the bag was back in my car, the staff was friendly, chatty, and completely awesome. Nice range and putting greens, and a great pro shop facility.

The 90 degree rule was in effect, but other than that minor inconvenience, every single thing about the course was great. The conditions were perfect and never had a bad lie. It's also a little more forgiving off the tee than I was led to believe. Lots of great views and photo ops.

Played with a great couple from the area and although that weren't having a stellar day, we had a blast. Highly recommend Troon North.

I've been to troon three times every time the stuff is more interested in doing what they want then being helpful. The gentleman who helped get my clubs out of my car was very helpful friendly and gave me great directions. The inside staff did not great me waited tell I said I was checking in. They thought thier conversation was more important. The outside service when I went to get my golf clubs useless. Not one of them said a word to me. Ten minutes after we were supposed to tee off we headed to the first tee and finally you guys are ready to go. The only golf course in these city which is supposed to have exceptional service has probably the worst. Thank you for reminding me why I will never recommend or go back.

Everything about this course was top notch. Pace of play was quick. I only slowed down when I caught a foursome at the 15th. I finished in just under 3 1/2 hours. The only issue was they had sanded the greens, which they told me about prior to teeing off. That didn't effect my play.

I played the gold tees. Off the tee, there was about 150 yards of carry until the fairway on a lot of the holes. The GPS worked well, so I didn't even notice how the course was marked.

Since I teed off at 2:36 PM, the drink cart only made 1 pass.

First time playing and would recommend. Very difficult course but enjoyable. Not what I expected in terms of being the #1 overall rated course in AZ but still very nice. Especially when you only pay $29 to play; a steal of a deal! Thanks GolfNow for getting me the price. Normally this time of year the price is $75. I'm sure much more than that in the peak season. Wife and I played and enjoyed our time together. It was more difficult for my wife but she still enjoyed it. Staff was very friendly and outgoing. Made you feel welcomed. Worth checking off your bucket list if price is right.

Troon North is a nice golf course, however there are better courses out there, especially when considering price and pace of play, which are 2 important factors for me. I played the Pinnacle course, which has very lovely views of Scottsdale, North Phoenix, Carefree, and Cave Creek. The mountains look gorgeous especially from the tee box on hole #3. The fairways are narrow and surrounded by desert making challenging tee shots. The main issue with the greens is they currently have 2 different kinds of grass growing on them and are spotty. Although they are soft and receptive, the ball does not roll true to line and the grain simply takes over the ball since the grass grows in different heights throughout the day. Pace of play was super slow as well.

It was in great shape, despite an outrageous heatwave. It was 121 when we played. Too hot.

The course has a few blind shots and tee shots that you have to guess on shot placement if you've never played. The staff, course, facility, greens....all absolutely top shelf. It was a great experience.

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!

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.
