4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Talking Stick Golf Club (North course): With its Scottish links styling, and an absence of perimeter-hugging real estate, Talking Stick's North course offers something a bit different from the more typical golf and residential developments found here in Scottsdale. Situated on the flattish terrain of an Indian reservation, Crenshaw and Coore have designed a thoroughly absorbing and wonderfully challenging layout. The generous fairways extend to the cart paths, without thick and clinging rough to worry about. Small bushes, rather than trees, create the classic linksy openess, but don't imagine that this will make things any less challenging. Your shot-making will require accurate approach work to hit the smallish greens, which are usually strongly defended by plenty of deep bunkering. Out of bounds is a factor on some of the early holes. A real Scottsdale treat, and somewhat different from the norm.

Talking Stick is located on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Reservation. Two different meanings are ascribed to the name "talking stick". One is that a stick was used by the local Pima tribe to record important events, such as harvests, droughts, solar eclipses and festivals. The other is that a stick was passed around at tribal meetings to the person who wanted to speak. | Talking Stick is managed and operated by Troon Golf, a world leader in upscale golf course management. | Talking Stick formerly played host to the PGA Tour Qualifying School (in 1998 and 1999).

Latest golf course reviews
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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.

Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
