I was in Scottsdale for a meeting in January and got to play at Grayhawk, Raptor course. It was one of the nicest courses I've played, and was a very fun layout. Greens were very nicely manucured, and were pretty quick. Check out their website, www.grawhawkgolf.com. I did get a chance to walk around the TPC a bit since my hotel was right next door, and it was beautiful. I was there right before the Pheonix Open and the rough was about seven or eight inches, and my boss who got to play there said that they had a local rule that gave you a free drop out of the rough since they were growing it out for the tournament.

TPC is a very well conditioned course, one of the best in the Valley, but there are so many more that are much more scenic and alot more fun to play.

 

TPC is nice because you get to play where the Pro's play, but for the money, there are better choices.

 

Here is a link to the previous Scottsdale posts. Good luck.

I think I am the only one here, but I was not impressed with WeKoPA. I did not think it was worth the money. I liked a few of the holes, but overall I expected more due to the hype.

 

I agree with the recommendation of Troon North & Greyhawk...Awesome courses! I also liked the ASU Karsten course in Tempe. Holes 9 & 18 are some of the toughest you'll find anywhere.

 

No matter where you play, you can't beat the weather in AZ, and the course conditions are usually spectacular.

 

Enjoy! :)

I'm involved in a friendly golf outing to scottsdale every summer. last year we played greyhawk talon, troon monument, tpc, and wekopa. I'd say that greyhawk and troon are a must play (greyhawk is a personal fave). TPC is great, it's cool that the pros play there and there are some dramatic finishing holes. I really liked it but couldn't recommend it as a must. As for wekopa, I agree with rico on this one. I wouldn't go back- wasn't well maintained, but the service was good. Like the TPC, the karsten course is cool to play and practice at (faux grass range and huge) but nothing breathtaking there.

 

i'm looking forward to the boulders this august, possibly talking stick, and i'm reaching to get out on one of the desert mountain courses...anyone know who to talk to for this....?

 

check out the link. this place looks like paradise

We played TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course this past April 2007 and it was the best course I have played thus far - worth every penny.

 

Another nice course that I play often in Phoenix is Phantom Horse in Tempe, near the airport - very nice elevation changes and all that.

 

I also like the 2 Whirlwind courses at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass in Chandler - the Cattail is slightly better than Devil's Claw, IMO.
