The Talking Stick Golf Club, designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, offers two uniquely different courses that each offer many options according to your playing skill. The Piipaash course (previously known as South at Talking Stick Golf Club), with its tree-lined fairways and raised greens defended at the sides offers a more straightforward style of play than the O'odham Course (formerly known as North at Talking Stick Golf Club).

A round of golf on the Piipaash Course at the Talking Stick Golf Club kicks off on a par-4 hole that measures 405 yards from the Black tees. Three long par-5 holes ensures that power golfers will get their kicks, with the fifth hole coming in at 516 yards, the 1fourth measuring 541 and the 16th playing to 548. The round of golf concludes on a relatively shorter par 4 that measures 323 yards.

After a round of golf on the North Course at the Talking Stick Golf Club, head back to the Wildhorse Grille for drinks and a bite to eat.

South Course in excellent condition

Enjoyed my round. Tee boxes were level and clipped. Fairways were being cut ahead of me. Greens were firm, with reasonable speed. Sand traps (found a few) were inconsistent with sand fill, adding to the challenge of escape. Pace was fabulous, as I was alone (a single walking), with no one visibly before or after me. TeeOff rate was very reasonable, making this a great value. The starter even allowed me to depart early, as both courses were unusually quiet on this particular Monday morning.

Nice Course

Overall a decent and moderate difficulty course. Extremely hot for this Colorado golfer. I was prepared with plenty of water. The course was setup with multiple water points. Keep it in the fairway. I would recommend playing the course but not a course I burn to play again (no pun intended).

Enjoyed it!

First time playing this course, usually out of my price range. Able to get a deal off of this app so made it worth it. Fair ways are wide and greens are protected so it makes it fun and challenging. Looking to see what the north course is all about.

Pretty good

Considering this course was victim to the monsoon a day earlier it was in pretty good shape. I did shoot my best round here so giving it a good rating. However it was over booked and the pace had us waiting 5 min on every box? Aside from that, loved it! Plan to ay it again.

Difficulty assessing distance

Need GPS or at very minimum put in some 150 yard sticks and provide a score card with map. Very hard to know what’s ahead with no visual.

Pretty Satisfied

Not the fanciest course out there, but conditions were great for this time of the year and can't beat the weekday prices.
