Scottsdale's acclaimed Grayhawk Golf Club offers two of the Southwest's most enjoyable and challenging golf experiences, Raptor course being just one of them.

Grayhawk GC - Raptor: #8

Named after one of the most ferocious carnivores on the evolutionary chain, the Raptor at Grayhawk Golf Club doesn't false advertise. It plays 7,151 yards and a 74.2 slope rating from the championship tees.

Although it doesn't require the demanding tee shots over desert that Talon (the other course at Grayhawk Golf Club) does, the Raptor poses more potential traps for players, with 22 more bunkers (70 to 48) than its sister course. The fourth hole, a 520-yard par 5, and No. 14, a 379-yard par 4, provide nice shots of the McDowell Mountains. "Aces and Eights," the par-3 156-yard eighth hole, is a masterpiece. Three front bunkers can hide a front pin on the two-tiered green. The downhill par-3 16th plays anywhere from 160 to 210 yards, depending on the tee placement, with some water to worry about on the left.

Club representative and nearby Arizona State grad Phil Mickelson is honored here with "Phil's Grill" at the clubhouse as well as a PGA leader board with his score permanently posted no matter where he stands in the current tournament.
