Proclaiming Arizona's No.2-rated Course "just as good as its more famous sister", players partial to this "very demanding, very lovely" pinnacle of "must-plays" are "awed" by "lush fairways and true greens in a pristine desert setting" with "magnificent views"; "no request is too small" for the "professional staff" at this "truly first-class" facility with a stellar spa and fitness center where "every amenity imaginable" is on hand.

Profile: This facility has two dynamic eighteen hole courses: The Monument Course and The Pinnacle Course.
The Monument was designed by the team of legendary golfer, Tom Weiskopf and architect, Jay Morrish, and stretches to 7,028 yards. It has beauty, challenge, and is thoroughly enjoyable to play. The desert frequently comes into play, but the course is not a target course. On hole #14, your tee shot must carry over a dry desert wash and a stretch of desert. The second shot is somewhat tricky since the long, slender green is set at a diagonal, requiring an approach from the right side of the fairway.
GOLF MAGZAZINE ranked The Monument Course 21st in the category of "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." for 2002.
Weiskopf's Pinnacle Golf Course is a worthy companion to his previous masterpiece. Built around dramatic granite boulders and striking elevation changes, The Pinnacle features a more traditional desert layout with tighter landing areas and spectacular carries over desert washes. The signature hole, nicknamed "The Pinnacle," is #18, a 407-yard, par 4, featuring an outstanding view of Pinnacle Peak in the background. Water hazards come into play on holes #4 and #9.
GOLF MAGAZINE ranked it 58th on its 2002 list of "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S."
Course information booklets are available in the pro shop. Tee time reservations can be made by calling (480) 585-7700.
