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.

Pace of play.

Not a ranger in sight. 5 zones on holes with loud music and horseplay. Nobody to help get them under control and move them. 5.5 hours for 15 holes.

Talking Stick - nice but not exciting.

Course very playable and in great condition. Nice wide fairways. Greens rock hard taking getting used to. Many par-4’s very similar: Driver/7-iron, repeat. Layout level with little significant elevation change. Large driving range.

Average layout

Course was in good shape. Greens were fast and consistent. Overall not worth the green fee in my eyes. There wasn’t much variety. Wide open with very little character. There were a few holes on the backside that had some variety but as a whole most holes just looked the same as the others. The green complexes were the only defense the course had. Got a “hot deal” for 115 and with so many other option in this price range I would play elsewhere. Nothing wrong with the course but just not that interesting

Garbage course

They let film crews in to make tiktok videos during prime tee times. Parking lot jam packed and film crew took up over 50 parking spots. Total joke!
