The Talking Stick Golf Club, designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, offers two uniquely different courses that each offer many options according to your playing skill. The Piipaash course (previously known as South at Talking Stick Golf Club), with its tree-lined fairways and raised greens defended at the sides offers a more straightforward style of play than the O'odham Course (formerly known as North at Talking Stick Golf Club).

A round of golf on the Piipaash Course at the Talking Stick Golf Club kicks off on a par-4 hole that measures 405 yards from the Black tees. Three long par-5 holes ensures that power golfers will get their kicks, with the fifth hole coming in at 516 yards, the 1fourth measuring 541 and the 16th playing to 548. The round of golf concludes on a relatively shorter par 4 that measures 323 yards.

After a round of golf on the North Course at the Talking Stick Golf Club, head back to the Wildhorse Grille for drinks and a bite to eat.

Got a great rate for noon tee time. Cart path only due to overseeding. Otherwise nice outing.

BETTER COURSES FOR THE MONEY

Even though I gave an excellent rating for the course for me it was a little boring. No water hazards. I think there are better and prettier courses available in town. However based on your level this is a great experience. The greens are big and chllenging

Nice time

Course is not too demanding but both my wife and I enjoyed the relaxed time and 3:45 time it took to play. Course is well kept and the greens are quite good. All in all, glad we were there.

Fred

No warning of cart path only. Extremely slow pace of play. Greens were like putting on Brillo pad. Course was way over booked. At times four groups on one hole. Most holes required 50 yard walk to ball when drive was in middle of fairway for person driving the cart. Just couldn’t recommend this to anyone if they just weren’t so greedy in putting so many players on the course. No effort to keep a descent pace of play. Such a shame waste of facility.

Tony Counts

The fairways were plush and green but the greens were shaggy, slow, and unacceptable for the money. The staff was friendly and the pace of play was OK. Ammenities were limited on the course, but driving range was great. I was just not happy with the greens.

Wide open fairways

If you don't like to be intimidated by tree lined fairways, Talking Stick is for you. Playing long is main defense, but expansive greens also lead to a golfer friendly design.

Holes all quite similar

Course in nice condition. Cart path only really slowed it down. Many of the par 4s had the same look / layout.

great golf

Started after our tee time (2:01) and only played 16 holes before it was too dark; group in front of us was walking and did not keep pace. Most courses will not allow walkers on weekends which I recommend after this experience. Still a great place to play!

Nice greens with horrible collars

The greens were running at about a 12 and the collars were like a 1. This made it extremely difficult to chip onto the greens. Anything that cleared the collar went completely through the green and anything that hit the collar completely stopped. I've never experienced conditions like that. Im not sure if it was because the course was due to be shut down for seeding in a few days.
