The deserts of Arizona are the last place you'd expect to find an ode to the British Open but the Monument course at Troon North is a love song to the golf courses on the other side of the Atlantic, from the ability to play bump-and-run shots into greens into the names of some of the holes.

A round of golf on the Monument Course at the Troon North Golf Club kicks off on a par-4 hole that measures 444 yards from the Black tees. Things get long on the third hole, a par 5 that plays to 564 yards from the Black tee and is one of four holes that come in at over 500 yards from the Black tees.

The 18th hole on the Monument Course at the Troon North Golf Club will be a relative breeze, then, a par 4 that measures just 370 yards from the Black tees.

Both courses at Troon North were incredible, I loved both and highly recommend both courses. The people working at the bag drop were very nice, the clubhouse was really cool and the restaurant had great food. Very cool putting green but the driving range looked like it needed work. No matter where you went you were hitting off of dirt. The grass was nearly non-existent. Worst driving range of our trip. Good thing the range doesn't reflect the courses because the tracks are awesome. I loved the views on both courses, Pinnacle felt like it had a lot of elevation changes, I loved the par 3s on Pinnacle and the bunkers were great. Many houses line the holes so if that makes you nervous, tone it back. Greens are very fast and very well maintained. You will love this course if you like desert golf. A must.

My son and I have played this course a few times. The views on the Back 9 are stunning and stay on my mind for months after I return to the snow and cold of MN. The fairways are generous in size and the pace of play is perfect.

Played with my 13 years old son who is a good player that can shot in the sixties not so rarely. I manage to play in the high seventies but this course is a tremendous challenge for the golfers, or at least for us Floridians who are not used to play in the desert. He shot 74 and I shot 86.. A lot of blind shots and you really need to keep the ball in fairway otherwise, it is gone amid the boulders and cactus. Every shot is a challenge. The course was in immaculate conditions despite the drought in Scottsdale area. By far the best one we played in the area, not to say in the whole Southwest region. Very nice and gentle staff and good food awaits you too.

For me, Troon North (price notwithstanding) has always been my overall favorite public golf experience in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, and the recent renovations on the Monument Course just solidify that ranking. When the course reopened late last fall, it didn't happen a minute too early. The new greens were perfect, as were the bunkers, and the fairways, rough and native areas were flawless, too. Combine this with a terrific design that keeps its distance from the homes on the sides of the hills and you pretty much have the ultimate desert golf experience.

From the moment you drive onto the grounds, you know you've come to a different kind of golf course. The attention to detail is ridiculous. You don't pass anyone without a friendly "hello".

The golf course itself, is immaculate. There is no such thing as a bad lie. The course architecture blends easily with nature. There are plenty of spectacular photo ops while you're playing(they probably don't want to hear that). The tees give your heart a shiver as you look out to the fairway. They are wider than they appear. The greens are quick, with subtle breaks. From the fairway, always take one more club than normal and you'll have the round of your life.

I could go on forever, but I won't. In short, if you find yourself in Phoenix, for any reason, get to Troon North and experience golf as you never have before.

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.
