Grayhawk Golf Club
Grayhawk Golf Club overview
Located 16 miles north of downtown Scottsdale, Arizona, Grayhawk Golf Club offers is home to two of the best public courses in the state – Talon and Raptor.
The rotunda-like clubhouse is a magnificent golf facility and contains three separate dining options to choose from and a Golf Shop & Trading Post for a true retail experience. One of the three restaurants is Phil’s Grill, offering a variety of dishes from fish to tacos to sandwiches and salads. This great dig is an ode to “Lefty” Phil Mickelson’s ambassadorship for the club and is packed with memorabilia from Mickelson’s career.
The practice facilities are also excellent and from the driving range to short-game area you will have all you need to get warmed up.
