Arizona Golf Course Review - Talon Course

Greyhawk Golf Club - Talon 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.

Practice facilities include several putting greens, a short game area with practice bunker, plus a targeted grass range with piped in rock n roll music. The  Grayhawk Learning Center is led by an accomplished and experienced stable of renowned instructors who have both played and taught golf at the highest levels, all instruction programs are all highly personalized and run the gamut from half-day workshops to three-day golf schools. 

Talon Review

The Talon was designed by 1981 U.S. Open and 1979 PGA Champion, David Graham, and golf course architect Gary Panks,  and features breathtaking views of the nearby McDowell Mountains as well as the Phoenix/Scottsdale skyline. Talon's back nine is built around a series of deep box canyons with a handful of holes laid out along steep drop -offs and thick stands of Mesquite, Palo Verde and Ironwood trees.

The wonderfully manicured fairways on the Talon are not as wide as those on the Raptor, but the green complexes usually present ample room for error. Be aware that the putting surfaces are often tiered, so it is advisable to aim for the flag! Golfers will encounter strategically placed sand bunkers both greenside and near the landing zones off the tee.

There are 4 sets of tees with distances and slopes ranging from 6973 yards /146 slope, 6430 yards/134 slope, 5867 yards/122 slope for men and 136 for women,   and 5143 yards with a slope of 118 for ladies playing from the forward sets. The Talon will sincerely challenge top flight golfers hitting from the tips, but present a playable round from the mid and forward tees.

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 information on either of the courses at Grayhawk, visit our pages on our Arizona golf course listing section - which provides a link to the Grayhawk website - by clicking here
