Scottsdale’s longtime resident favorite facility featuring two Desmond Muirhead 18 hole Championship Courses. Both courses are over 7000 yards from the tips and have hosted numerous Amateur, Collegiate, and Professional Championships. Large clubhouse with restaurant and bar overlooks the ninth hole of the Palm Course. Both courses feature yardage markers to the front and backs of all greens and have color coded flags to let you know what portion to play to. There is a nice practice area with chipping green with sand trap and huge putting green.

PINE COURSE: This tract is named for the Pine trees lining its fairways. It has raised smallish greens and is probably the easier of the two courses. Its well bunkered off the tee with lots of grass and is not intimidating to the higher handicappers. There are four sets of tees to allow play from 5300 yds. to 7187 yds. and no reason to lay up. The 15th hole is the toughest with water surrounding the green on this long par four.

PALM COURSE: This course has more Palms lining its fairways. It can play as short as 5000 yards from the forward tees and over 7000 yards from the tips. The par fives here can be had with a well placed tee shot but the second shot must be precise to avoid hazards at the greens. These greens are a bit larger and not as elevated as the Pine course.
Its signature hole is the 9th where there is an island fairway to hit your tee shot. Don’t worry, there’s lots of room there and you don’t have to hit driver unless it’s into the wind.
