Definitely a bucket list course. Absolutely gorgeous views of the mountains and wildlife. Don't expect a good score unless you are a single digit golfer cuz the fairways are tight but well worth the price.

Paid $100 on golf now and would go back tomorrow in an instant.

This is an amazing course and one of the funnest, most beautiful and challenging that I have played. Pace of play was slow due to overseeding so carts were path only.

The course was incredible. We played during reseeding, so it was cart path only and quite soggy. But the course layout was incredible. Very challenging design that provided hazards for every tee box. Very hard for women who can’t drive 180 plus yards. No way to get on in two. But that’s half the fun. A challenge!

The course layout was great but the conditions were terrible. The fairways were a mix of brown and green. I understand that the course was about to close for over seeding but for over $200 I made a bad choice of booking this course. I played at kierland and had a much better experience even with kierland going through the overseeding process on one of their three 9 holes.

Incredible layout, difficult course. Staff is all very friendly and accommodating. Conditions were very disappointing, greens had innumerable ball marks and interfered with putts, fairways had rough spots. Took around 6 hours to play 18 and I nearly missed my flight out of Phoenix. I was between playing at Troon and TPC Stadium and several people recommended Troon. I expected better overall. Conditions might be better later in the year?

Pickelt11,

Thanks for playing Troon North. Sorry Troon North didn't meet all your expectations. We did have a busy day and our rounds were behind our normal pace of 4:24. We were monitoring pace all the day. GPS lets us know that no rounds were over 5 hours. Our Pinnacle course has had his share of play with one course closed this summer and the long hot summer has taken a toll, but hope to have you out again for another try.

I always love playing at Troon North when I come to Scottsdale and this was no different. End of September and the weather was absolutely perfect.

A week before shutting the course down for fall over seeding, greens were a bit wet and spongy compared to usual and practice range was closed.

Nice layout first time playing this course typical desert course hitting from and too green grass over desert. Carries were acceptable. Rolling layout a lot of elevation change. Course was in transition with over seeding but over all not bad.

Greens rolled well but some were really potted.

Overall not bad would play again.

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.

elkvalley,

Thanks for playing Troon North. We do all we can to remind players to fix their ball marks throughout the round. We have an over concentrated amount of play on our Pinnacle Course due to the Monument being closed for new green renovation. Thus our tee boxes have received more play that usual. Thanks for your comments as they are valued and I hope you give us another try in the future.

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

Sorry for the slow play. We work hard through the Players Assistants' with players of all calibers to play a difficult course as fast as possible. I apologize for a slow day.

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
