Grayhawk - Raptor & Talon
The Talon Course, designed by former U.S. Open and PGA Champion David Graham and architect Gary Panks, is one of the most exciting and dramatic golf courses ever built in the Southwest. In fact the 7,001-yard , par-72 Talon course was recently named among Golf Magazines Top 10 You Can Play in U.S. and has been selected to host many prestigious events, including the finals of the inaugural Andersen Consulting World Championship of Golf in 1995.
Talon offers elevated greens that are large and undulating, with numerous water hazards coming into play as well as one hole with an island green. Especially memorable are the par-3 11th hole, called “Swinging Bridge, and the par-4 13th, infamously known as Heaven or Hell because of the risk-reward value that is placed on the tee shot from 305 yards. In addition to thrilling golf, Talon provides players with breathtaking views of the nearby McDowell Mountains and the unspoiled beauty of the great Sonoran Desert.
The Raptor Course, which opened in 1995, is very scenic and has unique views that could catch any golfers’ eye, including the large lake that is adjacent to the clubhouse and hole #18, a 521-yard, par 5. Designed by Tom Fazio, the course offers a thrilling golf challenge that commands a players respect through a daring, high-stakes game of risk and reward. Stretching 7,108-yards from the back tees the par-72 course meanders over the gentle hills and across the deep natural arroyos that are typical of the Sonoran Desert. The Raptor course is a gorgeous layout that affords spectacular mountain views and features tee shots that often demand short desert carries. You’ll find rolling, jewel-green fairways, superb par-3s and lush landscaping. It also includes extensive mounding and massive bunkering, as well as shot-making pushed to the edge. Its not for beginners, and even seasoned players will struggle when elements push the Raptors claws into the attack position. To score well on this course, it is important to avoid the greenside bunkers – which are contoured, deep and abundant. Traps often line the front of raised green complexes that are very putt-able – if you can reach without landing in the hazards.
