Greyhawk Golf Club - Raptor Course | Arizona golf course

General information:

Established in 1994, Grayhawk Golf Club features two par-72 golf courses – Talon and Raptor –that are widely considered to be among the best golf courses in Scottsdale.  The golf courses differ in style, but the quality of play for each meets the highest conditioning and design standards consistent with true championship-caliber golf. In fact, both have hosted competitive tournaments at the highest levels of professional and amateur golf. With 2 layouts to choose from, this property can host events for as little as a dozen people to 288. NOTE The PGA Junior Tournament that has been hosted at Grayhawk since 2016, will continue to be held at this facility through 2022, and the NCAA chose the Raptor course as the host site for the NCAA Division I Men's and Women's Golf Championships from 2020 to 2022.

Grayhawk is located about 40 minutes from Sky Harbor Airport, on some of Scottsdale's premier real estate. The upscale residential community formed around the property is aptly named "Serenity". More than 200 mature Saguaros and thousands of native Palo Verde, Ironwood and Mesquite trees were preserved in the landscaping process, and other desert plants include 80,000 Greasewood, Bursage, Ocotillo and Barrel cactus. Wildlife also abounds in this glorious desert setting. For more info on Grayhawk, visit our page for page for either course - with link to their website, by clicking here
