Top 10 public golf courses

1. Talking Stick Golf Club

Background: Designed by legendary course architects Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, Talking Stick Golf Club is comprised of two distinctive championship golf courses offering beautiful, tranquil scenery and memorable experiences. The O’odham Course (formerly North Course), with its broad, angular holes, rewards thoughtful play through the rise of its many options according to one’s level of skill. Its low profile, slightly crowned greens and close-cropped approaches encourage running as well as aerial assaults. The Piipaash Course (formerly South Course) with its tree-lined fairways and raised greens defended at the sides offers a more straightforward style of play. It presents its challenge and strategy in an open and clear-cut fashion.
