The AAA Five Diamond Fairmont Scottsdale Princess provides the perfect setting to enjoy al fresco living in the blooming Sonoran Desert. As with the Native American tradition, you'll live in harmony with nature through vast open spaces, lushly landscaped grounds, regal Saguaro cacti and a burning orange sun sinking behind the majestic mountains that will inspire and energize you.
Grayhawk's Raptor Course, designed by Tom Fazio, offers a thrilling golf challenge that commands a player's respect through a daring, high-stakes game of risk and reward.
Stretching 7,108-yards from the back tees the par-72 course meanders over the gentle hills and across the deep natural arroyos that are typical of the Sonoran Desert.
Typical of Raptor's challenges is its 165-yard, par-3 8th hole, named 'Aces & Eights.' From the tee, this hole plays slightly downhill to a partially hidden green nestled in a natural amphitheater. Three large bunkers protect the front of the green and are placed in such a way as to 'fool the eye' of the player into thinking that the green complex is closer than it really is.
