Rating 72.9

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.

This Course Has It All

One of the most difficult things about playing golf at the Monument Course is all the distractions from nature and the way that Tom Weiskopf has rearranged the thousands of huge boulders to create a masterpiece of desert golf.
The only downside is that everyone wants to play here. On a Friday morning, we had a 6:30 tee time and were the first group off. The managers decided to double book the tee sheet
because there was also a big tournament starting at noon.
We made great time, the course was in pristine condition, and everybody was enjoying themselves when we ran into the extra bookers on hole #11. This group was staffed with
some serious duffers and our pace of play came to a screeching stall.
There are many classic short par fours here that are designed to eat your lunch. They are short but so deceptively difficult. The par fives seemed easy and were reached in regulation.
The drivable par four, Canyon Pass is 283 yards from the gold tee box. The tee is elevated high
above a tiny green in a bowl surrounded by boulder outcroppings on both sides. Neither gold tee golfer came close, they both wound up in the left desert.
The #16 hole Lone Mountain is way over 100 feet above the green. The distance from the copper tees is 213 yards and most of this is carry.
The greens are putting true but you can be easily tricked into giving away the hole. They
are set to be replaced this year because of some poa annua infestation. This morning they were rolling.
What an impressive golf course, this is my favorite in Phoenix so far.

Bad Greens

Overall, great fairways, rough, and course layout. Staff was awesome. Greens we’re atrocious. The amount of damage from not fixing divots was the worst I’ve ever seen. Couldn’t get a putt to roll straight to save my life.

These courses usually play in good condition. Staff is usually friendly. The pricing on this course is a complete ridiculous as I can play Pebble Beach for the same price. The greens run fairly smooth but have a thousand ball marks as nobody fixes them on this course because it's a tourist course. I would become a member here if it was a private course and no public play.

Amazing experience

We played the Monument course. The condition was incredible - lush green grass everywhere except for where there was desert, bunkers, or cart paths. Each hole was well designed and challenging to play.

It was our first time in a true desert type course and I hope we get back to play it again.

Great course, but

The course.was in great condition and is quite scenic. But we were disappointed in a fee that was higher than the GolfNow price, a driving range that was NOT available (and for which we arrived early to use and warmup), a cart with a broken GPS, and slow pace of play. For the price, we expected a better experience.

The course was in very good shape. Pleasure to play, however the driving range was closed, supposedly due to an equipment problem. That was disappointing.

Bad Luck with Group in Front

It was Cart Path only which was fine and the pace of play was what was expected, until the last 2 holes. It looked like they had sent out a group of 12 (3 4-somes) in front and they decided to congregate on the 17th hole, and holding up all the groups behind them by about 20-30 minutes. We tried to contact the clubhouse via their carts like we were instructed to but no one came. It was also unfortunate they did not have a marshall.

The groups in front of us were extremely inconsiderate as we continuously saw fresh/new pitch marks on the greens that were not repaired and trash littered on multiple holes (snack bags, beer cans, ball sleeves, etc).

Wish they had a better system of controlling these people as it really ruined the experience.

Poor green conditions/poor value for the $$

The staff was great, consistent with other high end courses. Course itself was a lot of fun & challenging to play on a windy day. We paid over $300/person, & at this price point the greens were horrendous. It looks like no one ever fixes a ball mark. I am a lower handicap, and if I had been playing a money game I would have had to fix multiple marks on most putts.

The fairways looked nice, but similar issue of people not replacing/fixing divots.

Unless you have money to burn, there are a lot of other options in Scottsdale in the $100’s & $200’s.

I Expected Better

This course has a great track. It’s challenging but would be great for any level of golfer. The staff in the pro shop were excellent, the starter “average”. The fairways were in great shape and had just been over seeded. My disappointment came with the greens. They made the course feel very “touristy” in that the greens were pockmarked with divots and I wouldn’t have expected that based on the cost to play this course.
