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.

Extremely challenging, but the views and conditions make up for it.

First time to Phoenix and played some great courses while there. Pinnacle edged out Quintero,for conditions and views, but just slightly. Bring lots of balls if you don't have your A game, the desert is not forgiving. Course conditions were amazing, but greens were like concrete and extremely fast. Don't be above the holes. Staff and amenities top notch. Will definitely be back to play the Monument Course.

Beautiful but tough course

I’m not a great golfer (20 handicap) but I love the game, and this course was really tough for me and the other three that joined us. From the first hole I noticed the placement of transition and traps made reaching the green in regulation and thus scoring difficult. The caddie was very friendly but virtually useless, as he didn’t read one break properly and rarely offered helpful suggestions. His only purpose was to rake the traps collect our clubs and double check the reads on the gps cart. Not worth the money, and at over $750 for two it was a disappointment. It was a very cold day and the cart girls had no hot coffee or warm drinks. But overall it’s still worthwhile if you’re a better golfer than me or just want to enjoy the beautiful desert scenery.

It started out bad when the kid at the bag drop got our clubs all mixed up. The course made up for it but the price ! There is better value out there.

Troon Pinnacle

Payed course many times before. This time (first of 2019) found course to be in poor shape. Practice area was very bad, practice chipping area worse. Greens very soft and marked up badly. Mowing was happening today, lots of extra grass and debris. Runoff from recent rains not dealt with. For one of highest cost golf courses in Scottsdale, poor presentation. Always one of my favorite golf courses, in poor shape today.

Refresh leaves Pinnacle close to perfect

It's not as if the Pinnacle Course wasn't already one of the top golf courses in the country before a recent renovation. But after it reopened in the fall following a reworking of the greens and bunkers, it's simply that much better. Which is pretty much perfect. Conditioning doesn't get any better than it does at Troon North, and in this case, the Pinnacle Course, which is arguably the better of two terrific courses there.

The Pinnacle, with its all its beauty, is also one of the most challenging courses in the area. This is desert target golf, so you'll have to be on your game, especially on the approaches, if you want to shoot a good score. Even if you're not on your game, though, it's still thoroughly enjoyable with all the elevated tees, mountain backgrounds and beautiful desert landscapes. Plus, you still have the great practice facilities (music on the range), courteous service, fantastic pro shop and grill to go with the experience. In short, Troon North always lives up to its premium experience reputation.

Always a good experience

Troon north is always in good shape and this time was no exception. It’s a little pricey so try and find a hot deal. I paid $86 and it’s definitely with that but I wouldn’t play the $171+ that most others were playing.

Must play

We played the Pinnacle course and it was a wonderfully set up course that you can enjoy with different levels of skill. The staff was tremendously courteous. We were caught in a unexpected frost delay and the staff spent much efforts to move us up and paired with another couple. We had great fun and finished just in time to enjoy the beautiful sunset! Thanks!

Never again

This was by far the worst golf experience I have ever endured. We were a groupe of 28 players, at least 24 of which are club players. I was in the last foursome. On our way to the second tee, the GPS iPad in the cart starts beeping telling us we are 2 minutes behind. However, when we get to the second tee, we have to wait because the player in front of us are still in the fairway. By the time we get to our balls in the fairway, this Marshall shows up and starts chewing us out because we are already 3 minutes behind. I tell him we can’t play because we have to wait for the green. Clear the course in front and we will follow.
The GPS Beeped all through the front nine but we were following.
When we got to the tenth tee, there is this Marshall built like a body builder, standing with his legs apart and his arms crossed like he is some kind of bouncer in a night club, watching everyone of us teeing off. Is this customer service?
At the end of the day, we finished this round in 4hours and 25 minutes of constant frustration.
It was the tenth anniversary of this groupe. We have played everywhere from Myrtle Beach to Orlando and this year Arizona. Never have we had a bad experience like this one.

One of the best

Always a pleasure to play Troon North. It had been a couple of years since my last visit, so was a surprise to get a great deal on Golf Now for a single. I jumped on it in a flash. Played both sides with a replay rate for $75 and managed to finish just in time.
Thanks Troon North. See you next year!

Challenging layout

Great round on a challenging course. It will be tough for inexperienced golfers so bring extra balls. Lots of fun and gorgeous. Scenery makes up for the tough courses. Don’t get too frustrated.

Third visit to Scottsdale from Canada. So glad we were able to play this course (Pinnacle) on this visit. Excellent course. We played TPC Champions and Wildfire Palmer course the previous days.....definitely more challenging. Challenging from all tee boxes. Played from Silver tees which was more than enough challenge. Our wives played from Jade. Don’t bother looking for your balls. Drop out and play.....impossible playing from desert rough and shrubs. Finished in about 4hrs and 5 mins. Staff super friendly. Driving range excellent. Course in great condition. Great elevation changes but few if any blind shots....I hate blind tee shots!

November 21st

Course conditions were great. Pace of play was slow and because of this we were not able to finish.
I was surprised to see an employee, while I was talking to him, simply turn his head, spit on the concrete and then continue talking to me.
Very impolite.
