It was truly shocking the number of unrepaired ball marks on the greens. The greens looked like the far side of the moon. I have been golfing 40+ years and I have never seen anything close to it. I quickly gave up on fixing ball marks other than my own since it seemed pointless. Many of the marks were deep and fresh. Numerous bunkers had footprints that were not raked. I was shocked overall by the lack of regard for the course by the players there. There were some bare patches on the course and around some greens. The tee boxes were small and fairly hacked up. I paid more at Troon than at the 6 previous courses I played and yet it was in by far the worst condition. I was very disappointed. Other courses in the area will et my return business. Troon North won't sadly, even though it is the closest course to me.

Took 5.5 hours to play, greens lightly sanded but still rolled good. Beer is to pricey. If it wasn't so crowded would be good, round was just to slow pace

Pace of play was slow, greens were top-dressed and fairways were far from prestine (Pinnacle Course). This is certainly a beautiful area but did not live up to my expectations for a Troon Golf facility.

Course was great

Unfortunately the 5 hour round took the shine off

The Foursome infront of us put on a clinic on slow play.

The course marshal tried every means to speed them up but no dice.

Towards the end of the round groups farther back quit and drove past

This course is always special to play, and presents a tremendous challenge. You must bring your A game when you play here, as there are tight fairways, long carries, and a variety of angles off the tee and for your approach shots. The greens were very well maintained, and super quick. The hot weather clearly had taken a toll on the course as there were many re-sodded areas around greens and fairways. But that didn't take away from the beauty of this course.

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.
