Rating 72.8

Pinnacle at Troon North represents a stunning, challenging golf experience blended into the high Desert's natural beauty with steep arroyos, natural washes and forests of saguaros and desert foliage. Portions of some fairways are hidden behind boulders and hills. Huge greens surrounded by large bunkers and sloping terrain challenge golfers on every approach shot.

A round of golf on the Pinnacle Course at the Troon North Golf Club kicks off on a par-4 hole that measures 392 yards from the Black tees. Things get crazy long on the 16th hole, a par 5 that plays to 609 yards from the Black tees. By that measure, the 18th hole will be a cakewalk, at par-4 and just 447 yards from the Black tee to the clubhouse.

After finishing the Pinnacle Course at Troon North Golf Club, head to the Grille, which offers a view of others trying to complete the course you've conquered, as well as the desert.

Rough start but fun in the end

Was initially disappointed the driving range was closed for maintenance. Would have been nice to know that ahead of time. I have lots of stiff joints and it requires a lot of time to loosen up on the range (or somewhere) in order to find my swing for the day and be ready to play. Unfortunately, that affected my front 9. The back improved quite a bit once I was loosened up a bit. Had a hard time gauging the greens and kept hitting the low side of the hole. However, the scenery more than made up for the poor round. Can't wait to come back.

Great course

I love playing Troon north. I was disappointed only in that the driving range was closed. If you are going to play a great course, you like to enjoy the experience, not just starting swinging away.

Troon North on the Cheap

This course is excellent in the summer. Great conditions and fees are much more reasonable. Our rate was only $81 on Teeoff.com. Would not pay $200+ for this course in the winter. My difficulty rating is based on the Silver tees which was about 6200 yards. Fairways are generous and not much protects the greens.

Beautiful desert course.

Spectacular desert course winding up and down the foothills in Scottsdale. The course is in superb condition for any season. For the peak of the summer it is outstanding.
It is a challenging track. There is a need for accuracy and distance control. Very unforgiving desert is everywhere. The greens are so nice. There are some superficial blemishes, but true and fast with significant contour to boot.
The staff was nothing short of awesome. Service was impeccable. You get what you pay for and they give it to you at Troon North. A must play in Scottsdale/Phoenix.

Amazing Course

Played the Pinnacle course yesterday and boy it was a treat! The greens are unbelievable right now. They have to be some of the absolute best in the valley. The overall course conditions were very impressive for summers in Scottsdale. The staff, facilities, and practice area are all some of the best as well. This is a must play when in Scottsdale!

The Best in Arizona

Amazing place. The entire Troon team are pros. The course conditions immaculate for anytime of year but unbelievable during 100+ degree summer days. Greens were perfect. Mix in the views and all the amenities that Troon provides makes it a “must play”. 3 hr and 40 minute round to boot…….

Get out here boys- you will not regret it.

Side note- it cost me 24$ thru Golf Now- Hot Deal for 54$, but I had earned 3- 10$ monthly credits from GN…

It is beautiful, friendly staff

This course is the real dessert experience. Gorgeous landscapes, Narrow fairways , medium speed greens (it improved during the morning) several ball impact depressions without fix on the greens

A little expensive and not much attention to pace of play

Overall good experience !

Gem of Phoenix area

Staff were friendly. Fantastic course layout, greens were not fast but rolled true. Very good pace of play - probably because it was over 108F hot summer noon time tee off.
The most impressive was the Teeing ground flatness. It was so cool like artificial mat of a practice range.
The Marshall provided iced wet towel from time to time.

Wow!

Even though we were in the dead of summer in the desert, the course was in very good shape. The greens were perfect and the fairways were surprisingly plush.

The views of the desert and rock formations were outstanding! Definitely a course to put on your bucket list!

Fun Track

Super fun track with more grass then you see from the tee boxes at times. Played from the gold tees, could not imagine playing from the tips. All in all, a fun and challenging course.
