More straightforward than the North Course, the South Course is 6,833 yards at par 71. What you see on the tee will tell you what to do. The South features subtle elevation changes, fingered bunkers, tiered landscaping and native cottonwoods and hardwoods.

Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore designed Talking Stick Golf Club, where everywhere you look on 36 holes you can hardly see any evidence that a bulldozer ripped through this Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian community.

More straightforward than the North Course, the South Course is 6,833 yards at par 71. What you see on the tee will tell you what to do. The South features subtle elevation changes, fingered bunkers, tiered landscaping and native cottonwoods and hardwoods.

The Talking Stick name comes from the traditional Pima calendar stick, a wooden branch carved to mark significant events in its history.

"The South course, with its tree-lined fairways and raised greens defended at the sides offers a more straightforward style of play." - Bill Coore & Ben Crenshaw

    I actually loved the Talking Stick golf courses. They are very well kept and somewhat open fairways. Excellent rough and firm, fast greens.
