Comments

Malibu: This course near Phoenix is a nice one for the money. Located just south of Phoenix, on Indian land with casinos nearby to take your change. Fairways, greens, sand traps, and views are great.

QuickBuck: For late June this course was great. Cat Tail is more interesting than Devil’s Claw. The pin placement was tough today but they can make it impossible. As with any Troon club, you will enjoy yourself as long as you play the tees that fit your skill. There are 5 sets of tees. What a bargain!

Stone: Nice Troon managed course. The Cat Tail course is much nicer in my opinion, even though it is “side by each” with Devil’s Claw as I think the design of the Cat Tail course has more variety. The pro shop did mislead us on the status of the greens, telling me on the telephone they had been aerated three weeks ago; they looked like it had been last week! Not in very good shape. The bunkers were full of rocks and dirt instead of sand (at least the ones I was in, which was a statistically significant sampling), but overall a very nice course and more fun to play than the two Talking Stick courses which are similar in many ways. Try it!
