Ours was the first course designed by Jay Morrish and international tour pro Tom Weiskopf, who won the 1973 Open Championship at Royal Troon in Scotland. Tom was intimately involved in the design and construction process and once the course was completed, he played the first round with our Members. To this day, Tom is actively involved with the maintenance of our course’s integrity. Our course not only shares design similarities to our namesake, Royal Troon but we continue to maintain a warm relationship with our Scottish sister, which is demonstrated through our reciprocity with them.
We have had the honor of hosting many Golf Championship such as, 1990 USGA Mid-Amateur Championship, Ping Pro Scratch from 1985 - 1995, and the 84th. Arizona Amateur Championship in 2008, and this will be our 10th time hosting the Arizona Open.
In 2017 we were proud to have hosted the Arizona Open for the tenth time since our inception.
We have been honored to have Golf Digest name us the 13th Best Course in Arizona. We were also voted Top 100 Courses in the US and in 1988, Golf Week Magazine's Americas Top 100 Residential Courses 2005, Golf Magazine's Top 500 Holes in the World 200, Golf Digests Magazine's Top Rated Course for Arizona and we were named Top Private New Country Club.
