The deserts of Arizona are the last place you'd expect to find an ode to the British Open but the Monument course at Troon North is a love song to the golf courses on the other side of the Atlantic, from the ability to play bump-and-run shots into greens into the names of some of the holes.

A round of golf on the Monument Course at the Troon North Golf Club kicks off on a par-4 hole that measures 444 yards from the Black tees. Things get long on the third hole, a par 5 that plays to 564 yards from the Black tee and is one of four holes that come in at over 500 yards from the Black tees.

The 18th hole on the Monument Course at the Troon North Golf Club will be a relative breeze, then, a par 4 that measures just 370 yards from the Black tees.

All good until….

Welcome, great; staff, great; lay out, great; driving range, mediocre due little turf where it is currently set up. Nonetheless always a good feel… right up until you get to the first green…. And then the 2nd, and then the 3rd… ball marks were shocking for a high end golf course and simply unacceptable at this price point. Allocate some staff to repair them. Shameful that golfers don’t fix them, but my guys we fix 4 -5 per hole, it’s just not enough. #2 looks like a somebody did a helicopter ball drop! Sorry, but I expected better at this price point. probably 8th time I’ve played this course and have never seen it like this.

Great golf course

We had a outstanding time at this location. This was one of the top 5 courses I have ever played. The views were amazing. The layout was fun and challenging. This staff was great

The only hicup was it was cart path only for some reason. The couple we were paired with had played there around 15 times and they said it was never like that in the past. I don't know if this was a special situation or a new policy but it did add some time to the round and a lot of extra steps.
Overall outstanding round.

Not worth it

5.5 hr round at Pinnacle. No starter. Course completely backed up, waiting before every shot. Ranger was a joke. Most holes you can’t hit driver, lots of forced carries. Greens and fairways were super nice. Views pretty good. Suggest you save your money and go play eagle mountain and dinosaur mountain for cost of one rd at Troon north.

Tight and challenging

Rarely hit driver because the course was so tight, but a good challenge. Greens in good shape, recommended.

3 hour back 9, bad staff

I don't know what it is with this course, every time I golf there's an issue starting.

Last time I played I showed up to the tee box 15 minutes early, only to find that the starter sent my group out 20 minutes before the scheduled tee time, and had me hitting into them on the fairway.

Today the starter tells me "wait for the other twosome". No worries. He leaves. The other twosome shows up. It's 2 minutes past our scheduled tee time. We tee off. He shows up a minute later, and he lectures my playing partners about how we were supposed to wait for him to send us off? I don't get it.

Grass range for warm-up is great, but the TopTracer feature requires WiFi and it was down. Drink cart came around a few times. Nothing was posted about ordering food at the turn. 2 bottles of water provided, club cleaner in cart with towels.

The course had some unique holes - #3 is the monument hole with a boulder in the middle of the fairway on a dogleg par 5. Had me excited that the course would have other unique features, but there was nothing that you wouldn't find on other courses for another 10 holes. #14 is an uphill par 5 into a mountain full of boulders. #15 is a drivable par 4. #16 is an elevated par 3 with a city/mountain view which is 238 from the tips (plays like 200). Lots of rabbits, saw 5 deer crossing the path, even saw a bobcat. This was the easier of the 2 courses here.

Made the turn just over 2 hours and finished in 5 hours. Back 9 was a 5-10 minute wait every hole. Ranger approached groups ahead of us and told them to speed up, but this accomplished nothing, and he gave up after hole #12. This part of the valley is full of wealthy people who don't like being told what to do. Every green had several ball marks that went unfixed.

Condition is fantastic, there's rough here outside the fairways instead of dead grass like most courses. Greens weren't as fast as they were a month ago - thank goodness. Bunkers had good sand in them. Tee boxes could have been cut a bit shorter.

Troon North is truly a Beautiful Gem

I have been living in Troon North for 12 years after living in Scottsdale for 22 and I feel very lucky every single day to live in this neighborhood and that being said I’m also a real estate agent and I love working with people that love the lock off lifestyle, so if you’re ever looking .Please give me a call or hit my website brianford.com . It’s hard for me to decide which course I like better I really like both… Today I played the pinnacle course. It is an excellent shape. The greens are rolling very true and fast, but the fairways are lush and the views are incredible, monument back nine is probably my favorite, but you can’t go wrong with either course at all… Hope you get lucky to get the chance!

Not Worth the Money

Played Troon North as a Single, with no one else out there and was very much at my own pace (yay!) but I do have to say at 280$ before tax it's not worth the money. It is a nice course and very well kept but from an interesting factor it just isn't there. Also there was apparently a tournament the Friday before I played (2 days before I played) where a bunch of pitch marks were not repaired and the green was so beat up it really felt like a bit of a ripoff for not being told about the conditions....

Go play Southern Dunes, We-ko-pa, or Quintero for a better experience at a much better value for your money

Communication issues everywhere

Beautiful course exactly what you think of when you want to play Arizona golf. Just wasn't a 5 star experience, not even close.

Communication issue #1: incorrect electronic communication. When we booked the e-mail said that the course would be "carts 90 degrees", then when we get to the course they tell us "Cart path only". Bait and switch.

Communication issue #2: starter. We checked in with the starter 20 min before the tee time, and when I asked who we were playing with 13 minutes prior to my tee time he said "the people you are with already teed off". What? I had to yell down the fairway on #1 to my partners who already hit their first drives that "hey, heads up, we're partnered with you!" Keep in mind we were not late, but 13 minutes early, then felt rushed to hit our first drives and put in a weird situation with our partners.

Communication issue #3: ranger. We booked a 1:05pm tee time - since the course spaces tee times out 10 minutes you're going to have a sub-4.5 hour round, easily getting the round in before the 5:25pm sunset. However we ended up waiting on hole 2, hole 3, and then the ranger came up to us on the hole 3 fairway telling us to play faster to make sure the group behind us who was "paying more" would get their 18 in. What? We're on hole 3, we had to wait on every tee box, and we teed off ~15 min ahead of schedule.

Just to add - myself and another member of the group were both Troon Card members - we were not using 2-for-1s. Why even buy the card if you're going to be discriminated against for using it?

Communication issue #4: bag drop/cart drop off. There's a bag drop which is nice but there was no communication what happened after you dropped the bags. Just left them there and they miraculously made their way to the other side of the clubhouse. Drop off was even more frustrating as there was no one directing where carts should be left, and no signs indicating how to get to the parking lot. We ended up asking people who weren't staff because there was no staff available.

The course is beautiful but it's target practice. Could only hit driver on a few holes. It's not good enough to hit fairways, balls roll off on many holes. The greens were the fastest I've played all year and there's deep bunkers around many of them. The bunkers had a lot of sand in them. Don't think anyone in our group made a putt all day, very difficult greens.

Not sure if I'll make it back to the Monument course.
