troon north golf links
Troon North is a gem of a golf club and unequalled by any other in the American Southwest. It features the Monument and Pinnacle golf courses, both ranked respectively as 1st and 4th Best Public Access Course in Arizona of 2012 by Golf Magazine. The charm of these courses is the way they are artfully wrapped around Pinnacle Peak following along the natural ravines and foothills of Scottshill, Arizona. This is the perfect combination of wild desert beauty combined with a great golf design.

history of the course
The Monument course was the first in Troon North and was spectacular enough a golf course to put them on the map as one of the Top 100 Courses in America. This excellent target style course was designed by Jay Morrish, who not only apprenticed under legends Robert Trent Jones and George Fazio but also worked for Jack Nicklaus, and 16 time PGA Tour title holder Tom Weiskopf. The course was opened in 1990 and named after the large monument boulder on the fairway of the 3rd hole. The course was rerouted by Weiskopf in 2007 gave Monument one more of his signature drive-able par 4's.
Given the popularity and success of the first course, a second was created soon after. Tom Weiskopf was hired once again to design this beauty which opened in 1996. It was notably not as challenging as Monument, but definitely had its perks. The rerouting of ‘07 left Pinnacle without any drive-able par 4's but with one of the best collection of holes in Arizona. That renovation earned both courses high praise from many publications.
