Five Reasons To Love Talking Rock Golf
Golf isn’t everything at Talking Rock, but it sure is a marquee activity in a community that appreciates an active, outdoor lifestyle in an unforgettable area. We’ve seen quite a bit of activity at the club, especially during this stay-home season, and we can’t argue with the urge to get out and play.
Our Jay Morrish-designed course offers players contrasting experiences across its front and back nines, creating a perfect storm of challenges when terrain and elevation changes beg for shots that involve creativity and precision. The course has greens that are absolute heartbreakers and fairways that boost your self-esteem while allowing a variety of handicaps to find equal enjoyment in a round.
We could go on and on about our course, but instead, we’ll simply summarize five reasons we love playing here. Find out the rest when you visit for yourself.
Jay Morrish designed the Talking Rock course intent on using the shape of the land to his advantage. As a result, our course rolls a bit with the natural flow of the land, while also capturing truly panoramic views of the mountains that surround our community. We feel pretty lucky about that.
Talking Rock has a good habit of honoring veterans every year. To celebrate Veteran’s Day every fall, Talking Rock opens its course to veterans for a complimentary round. We’re proud to have the ability to give back to those who have served and we think it’s a good reflection of the energy we appreciate in our community.
It’s nice to play forgiving fairways. And that’s what Talking Rock offers. Besides, our wide fairways make up for the challenges presented by our sprawling, and at-times deep, bunkers.
Silent Moon Park is a nine-hole, short-game course we opened a few years ago, offering a quick chip fix or a rowdy but mini round of martini golf. Either way, you play, it works. It’s the perfect place to leave the big dog in the bag and work out some kinks or settle some bets.
We can play all year at Talking Rock, and we realize that’s a rarity. So, we embrace it. Our temperatures are often about 20 degrees cooler than the Phoenix area, and our afternoon breeze is generally a welcome one. It just makes golfing easy (or at least easier) when you know the weather is on your side.
