Greens were furry but I guess they're always like that and slow. As good of desert layout as you will find. Nice finishing hole. If you play the back tees with the men you'll have your work cut out for you. Clubhouse is excellent. Plenty...More

I’ve scheduled a tee time at Grayhawk my prior two visits to Scottsdale and had to cancel both. I even cancelled a tee time on my most recent trip, only to get a special offer two days later and rebook. Boy am I glad I...More

To the Golfers: Grayhawk Raptor is an impressive layout. It hosted the Fry’s.com PGA tournament for 3 years. As of June, the fairways are in transition, so expect some tight lies. This is a test of the whole game, particularly driving accuracy. Easy to lose...More

After playing the Talon last year this was a higher test of play. Pace was good but you had to place your shots. Being the first time playing this course we were at a disadvantge. Would like to play again knowing what I know now.

Absolutely brilliant golf course. The driving range has a great atmosphere with music playing and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The course was in very good shape and phils grill was very good for a post round beer and food.

This is a nice course. But very overpriced. The practice area was very chewed up. The carts had no GPS and no front windows. The balance of the course I.e. Fairways and Greens were good. It's also fairly open of the tee. The golf club,...More

Raptor remains wonderful. The new holes are excellent and 18 is one of the best finishing holes in the Valley. BUT paying $170+ for a weekday round in October on cart path only is outrageous. Arizona residents get no break. I only played at that...More

The course is, in my opinion, the better of the two. I'm not saying the Talon isn't fantastic what I'm saying is this is better. Well thought out course. You need a buggy but there was only one hole where green to tee felt far....More

The course is located in an upscale neighborhood of Scottsdale, the parking lot looks like a Barrett-Jackson Luxury used car lot. Rental Chevys and Fords are definitely out of place. The excellent service at bag drop is a precursor of an excellent day of golf....More

Great club/ Very forgiving. Only issue is that they deeply discount the rates in the summer and the rounds are slow! Not fun when it is 120 degrees!
