Golf at the Amazing Grayhawk Golf Club
Do you dream of gently rolling greens, gorgeous mountainous backdrops, and picturesque desert scenery – dotted with cacti, Palo Verde trees, and gorgeous water hazards? If so, our favorite golf course – the Grayhawk Golf Club – may be just what the doctor ordered. With two gorgeous and professionally designed courses, this centrally located golf club provides challenging but enjoyable golf to even the most skilled golfers. It is also within easy driving distance of all that makes North Scottsdale great including some of its top attractions, such as Tom’s Thumb Trail, the Penske Racing Museum, Macdonald’s Ranch, and even some other great Golf Clubs – for all you golf tourists out there!
Two Golf Courses, Two Different Experiences
One of the many facets that make Grayhawk Golf Club a must-play are its two professional courses, the Talon and Raptor courses. Though situated in the same area, both offer different experiences – and both are more than worth a round or two! The Talon course was designed by former US Open and PGA Champion David Graham, and is truly a course for the ages. As one of the highest rated golf courses in Arizona – an accomplishment accompanied by its placement on Golf Magazine’s “Top 100” list – the Talon Golf course provides fantastic views of the Mcdowell mountains, and some devilishly designed holes that many believe unmatched in Arizona. With a back 9 designed around a series of deep box canyons, and many holes punctuated by steep drop offs and thick brush, this course is much more difficult than it may first appear!
As for the Raptor, this Tom Fazio Designed course also offers thrilling challenges to all. A Par 72, 7090 yard course, the Raptor splays out over gentle hills, shaded washes, deep bunkers, and grass collection areas. Like its sister course, it too is considered one of the best public golf courses in Arizona by Golf Magazine, and has hosted many professional golf events!
