Where2Golf says: 

Grayhawk Golf Club (Raptor course): In his younger days as a resident of Scottsdale, this is where Phil Mickelson honed his irrepressible golfing skills. Of the club's two excellent championship layouts on which the young "leftie" played, the Raptor probably just edges it over the also very good Talon course.

The Tom Fazio-designed Raptor layout is characterised by tightish, lush fairways, huge and often deep greenside bunkering and wonderfully undulating greens that will fully test your putting skills. Housing around the course is limited to a few discrete single-storey buildings, nothing to detract from the excellence and naturalness of the golf course. On the back-nine the wonderfully scenic backdrop of the rugged McDowell mountains also adds to the framing of the holes.

Grayhawk is a first-class golf club in all respects, definitely one to include on your Scottsdale play list, even if the green fee is perhaps a little more hefty than some others.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
