Discover the links to Arizona's native heritage
If you listen, you can almost hear ancestral voices as the winds drift through this native land.
Deepen your connection to the land, as you listen carefully to the winds. At Talking Stick Golf Club in Scottsdale, premier golf on 36 artfully designed holes plays proudly in the shadow of majestic Red Mountain, which still symbolizes "home" to the people of the sovereign tribe.
Those native to the land nurtured life in a way that could make the desert bloom, just as course designers Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw based their work on a traditional layout with the greatest artistry as the ultimate goal. Truly an elevated experience, our courses are a modern-day reminder that the land continues to provide, just as it did for the ancient canal builders. Uniquely challenging for players of all levels, our award-winning North and South golf courses honor the traditions borne from the O'odham (pima) and Piipaash (Maricopa).
Delivering on the vision of the Salt River Pima - Maricopa Indian Community, Talking Stick Golf Club blends the desert panorama with an appreciation for a rich heritage. Come play, and experience the legacy.
