The PXG Experience

Originally Published:

"Life is about the stories and golfers at Scottsdale National get to tell a special one indeed. They enjoy the game of golf like never before on highly manicured fairways and greens, with breathtaking views of the 40,000 acres of undisturbed Sonoran desert which surrounds the club, made even more special by the absence of homes on the course. Because of its low membership the course is always wide open and ready for play, tee times are never necessary and golfers will seldom see another group. Add outstanding service and exceptional food to the equation and you've got an unbeatable experience." – Bob Parsons, Founder, Parsons Xtreme Golf & Scottsdale National Golf Club


“When someone is professionally fit for PXG clubs their enjoyment of the game goes up and their scores go down. In my mind that is a winning combination. Being fit by the guys who actually had a hand in designing the clubs, well that’s really special and something only a select few can say they’ve experienced.” – Bob Parsons, Founder, Parsons Xtreme Golf & Scottsdale National Golf Club

“I’ve been on a lot of great golf trips, but The PXG Experience was by far the best. I was blown-away by the pristine condition of the course and the incredible service throughout the three-day experience. And simply put, PXG clubs are the best I’ve ever hit.” – Peter Kravitz, Principal & General Counsel, Province

“When you arrive at PXG and Scottsdale National it’s like coming home to some of the great golf experiences I have been fortunate to have during my long and not so illustrious golf career. Everyone knows who you are and makes you feel welcome. The PXG clubs are amazing and I believe, the answer to that burning question posed by all kinds of golfers, ‘what's the next great club?’ PXG is it!" – Brain Greenspun, Publisher, Las Vegas Sun

Location: Scottsdale, AZ

Located within the McDowell Mountain Range, the undulating par 72 golf course sits on 290 acres of beautiful desert. Scottsdale National is unusual compared to the other courses in Arizona in that it was not built as part of a housing development – there are no homes lining the fairways or anywhere else on the property. The property is protected on three sides by over forty thousand acres of desert that has been set aside for preservation.

Signature Holes

#5 – With unobstructed views of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, Scottsdale National’s longest par 5 has arguably the most spectacular views on the property. From the lush, undulating fairway to the slightly elevated, two-tier green, golfers will enjoy mountain and open desert panoramas.

#15 – The “Mine Shaft” – Newly renovated, hole 15 is a risk reward par 5. With an elevated tee shot into the dogleg, golfers may be tempted to go for it in two. Beware of going long and landing in the daunting, 12-foot deep “Mine Shaft” bunker behind the green. The Mine Shaft will let few out in one attempt, so play with care.

#16 – This stunning par 3 sits at the highest point on the property. Halfway up the mountain, hidden among the desert landscape, golfers will find beautifully manicured tee boxes with unobstructed views for miles. Due to the significant change in elevation from tee to green players should choose their club wisely.
