Troon North Golf Club
There's no perfect swing for everybody. That's why Troon North Golf Club Director of Instruction Doug Hammer tailors his teachings to each client's level, whether they're competing in professional tournaments or swinging their first nine-iron. In his 14-year career, Doug has polished his instructional technique on courses from Galena, IL to Seoul, South Korea, picking up extensive club-fitting expertise along the way. At Troon North's Callaway Performance Center—one of only nine in the country—he analyzes clients' swings with sophisticated cameras and software, helping them select clubs and other equipment to improve their game.
That extra edge may come in handy when they play either of the two 18-hole courses at Troon North Golf Club. Framed by picturesque sandstone mountains, both courses may have repeatedly made Golf Magazine's "Top 100 Courses You Can Play" list—but that's not to say that golfers will play them well. If balls stray on their way to the green, players will have to hunt them down in grisly desert sands riddled with cacti, boulders, and reptiles who do not allow mulligans. The Pinnacle Course finishes with an epic dog-leg left par 4, where long hitters will be tempted to cut the corner and leave a short approach into a green nestled behind a desert waste area. Though its rating suggests it's slightly easier than its sister course, the Monument Course features a handful of treacherous holes, including two par 4s that exceed 460 yards in length.
