Grayhawk Golf Club – Talon Course

Talon, designed by former PGA and U.S. Open Champion David Graham and architect Gary Panks, opened in 1991 measuring 6,973 yards at par-72. It’s ranked No. 64 on Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 You Can Play List.”

On the Talon front nine, the par-5, 465-yard third hole, which doglegs left, is appropriately called the “Three Sisters” for the intimidating, deep bunkers, which are walled with wooden planks to the right of the green. But the back nine, with three potential water holes, fives holes over box canyons and a waterfall on No. 18, is where this course earns its high marks. The par-3 11th hole, “Swinging Bridge,” requires you to fly a bunker to a long, narrow green with a panoramic view of the mountains in the background. “Heaven or Hell,” the par-4 13th, is a mere 277 yards, but your tee shot must carry a box canyon and stay out of eight strategically placed bunkers.

Club representative and nearby Arizona State grad Phil Mickelson is honored here with “Phil’s Grill” at the clubhouse as well as a PGA leader board with his score permanently posted no matter where he stands in the current tournament.
