Style Desert
Par 71
Length 7009 yards
Slope 144
Rating 72.8

Pinnacle at Troon North represents a stunning, challenging golf experience blended into the high Desert's natural beauty with steep arroyos, natural washes and forests of saguaros and desert foliage. Portions of some fairways are hidden behind boulders and hills. Huge greens surrounded by large bunkers and sloping terrain challenge golfers on every approach shot.

A round of golf on the Pinnacle Course at the Troon North Golf Club kicks off on a par-4 hole that measures 392 yards from the Black tees. Things get crazy long on the 16th hole, a par 5 that plays to 609 yards from the Black tees. By that measure, the 18th hole will be a cakewalk, at par-4 and just 447 yards from the Black tee to the clubhouse.

After finishing the Pinnacle Course at Troon North Golf Club, head to the Grille, which offers a view of others trying to complete the course you've conquered, as well as the desert.

Troon North

The course was not in very good condition - pretty rough. And the fairways were sopping wet with mud in many places. It was very disappointing.

Played monument. This is a great course always first class. Greens and tee boxes in great shape. There are a number of burned out spots in the fairways but nothing really bad. Played in about 4+15

First rate...tough but fun.

Desert courses are never easy, but Troon has a lot of fun holes. Driveable par 4's and reachable par 5's from the proper tees make the course enjoyable. Always excellent staff from start to finish.

Range closed?! No notice.......

The course was in good shape. Some of the fairways and greens were a bit soft. (Wet, actually) so the ball would stop pretty much where it landed. I found out that on some fairways it is best to aim for the distance the stake is at. If you go past the stake the ball will run towards the washes as the fairways slant that direction. Overall, a good experience except some idiot on the 18th hole just sat with his cart in the fairway and wouldn't move. Dont know what his deal was, but after 15 - 20 minutes and the group behind me catching up I had to yell at him to get him to move.
P.S. You really should post that you close your range on Mondays. I had no idea. I did not have a chance to loosen up before going out.

This course has many "boulder" challenges.

Round would have been more enjoyable if player assistance had monitored pace more closely. Two younger players in group ahead of us thought they were only folks on the course. They did everything in slow motion and had never heard of golf etiquette. We had to wait at every hole. Assistance should have kept these guys moving.

Oddly busy

The course was oddly busy for late afternoon. Pace of play was lagging because of a 4-some who would not pick up the pace. After they were 4 holes behind the group in front of them, they finally let us through. The greens were in good shape. They have subtle breaks which are hard to read some times. The rest of the course is in very good shape. You need to plan some of your shots. Some holes you can just bomb away, others you need to think about where you want to land. If the course would have had a ranger keeping pace, then this would have been an excellent round.

No ranger

There were no Rangers on the course and the three foursomes in front of us were pathetically slow. Had to wait about 10 minutes on each tee box on the back nine.

A Surreal But Amazing Round

Had the pleasure of playing the Pinnacle course at TN this morning with a good friend of mine. Because of all the current health concerns, the course was virtually empty. Very strange feeling on such an awesome course. We took our time and finished our round in 3:15. Course conditions were incredible, and staff very friendly and professional.

Theron North - Monuments Course

A great experience! Impressive club house with welcoming staff from the bag drop through breakfast (delicious), to the pro shop & starter crew.

An outstanding desert course that is challenging but fair. Spectacular vistas and desert surroundings.

A must play on your bucket list!
