6 Outstanding Arizona Golf Courses Worthy Of The Pros

BY Taylor Transtrum | March 24, 2017 | Feature Golf Courses

Among a bounty of Arizona golf courses, these gorgeous greens prove to be a cut above the rest.

1. Troon North Golf Club

The brainchild of PGA pro Tom Weiskopf and golf course architect Jay Morrish, the Four Seasons Scottsdale-adjacent golf club is home to two 18-hole courses stretching throughout the foothills of Pinnacle Peak. Monument, an extensive 7,039-yard, par-72 course, as imagined by Weiskopf and designed by Morrish in 1990, offers five sets of tees to provide an ideal challenge for low and high handicap players alike. Six years after the birth of Monument, Weiskopf expanded Troon North with his own Pinnacle design, a 7,009-yard, par-71 course with five sets of tees. 10320 E. Dynamite Blvd., Scottsdale, 480.585.7700

2. The Westin Kierland Golf Club

Designed by celebrated golf course architect Scott Miller, the Troon Golf-managed course touts 27 strategically placed holes for a simultaneously robust yet relaxing experience. Factor in lush Scottsdale scenery and emerald fairways juxtaposed against golden desert grasses and you have an appetizing combination. However tempting, the club’s award-winning instructors should not be overshadowed by the exemplary course - the lineup includes award winners Mike and Sandy LaBauve of the LaBauve Golf Academy; and Tyler Haynes, a PGA Director of Instruction, who offers both training services and professional club fitting through the Kierland Performance Center. 15636 N. Clubgate Drive, Scottsdale, 480.922.9283
