About Talking Stick Resort & Casino

It is among Arizona's largest golf and casino resorts with nearly 500 guest rooms in a 15-story hotel tower, six restaurants, entertainment and pools. Located off the Highway 101 loop, it is conveniently located near Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and many of the area's best golf courses. In addition to nightlife and live casino action at the resort, a Topgolf was recently added to the property as well. The main outdoor pool is large and has live music and DJs during a summer series and cabanas for rent, while there are two smaller pools.

The golf club is located next door and feature 36 holes designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, the Piipash and O'odham. Both golf courses are void of residential development and feature forgiving fairways and greens on native terrain.

great course but no ball washers

The day was beautiful and sunny in the 70s
the pace of play was good we finished in4 hours
the fairways were lush , wide and welcoming
the greens were fast and rolled very true.
my only suggestion is to add ball washers on at least every other hole
we did get mud on the golf ball every so often.
We scored well and enjoyed our round.
i did not have a chance to have food at the grill so i can’t comment on
the food preparation
i will be back

A classic Valley of the Sun desert course without the target golf

Beautiful course layout and scenery. A challenging course especially with the fairways cut long. I understand the course had recently been over seeded and the good news was that carts were allowed on the fairways. Lots of water on the course though which made for some “sloppy” approach shots from the fairways. Greens and tee boxes were in good condition.

Off the Mark.

GolfNow had my tee time set at 1:18pm and when I checked in, the pro shop said I was late and my tee time was 1:10pm. I showed him my GolfNow reserved time but he didn’t seem to care. He probably bumped my tee time around for someone else being that I was a single.

Restaurant was closed before sunset at 5pm so went offsite for a nice dinner and drinks after my round.
