My group got out to Troon North Pinnacle for a 1:03 tee time. The rate was $69 utilizing the Troon Summer card. It was my first time playing the course and I was excited for the experience.
Check in was smooth with great customer service all around. Grass range was big but not a lot of grass to hit off with the amount of play going on. Practice areas were all in good shape.
I feel Pinnacle was a challenging course from the gold tees we played and being the first time playing the course. I think playing a second or third time would result in knowing more where to hit and how to play the holes a little better. The course has a great GPS system showing you the layout of the holes but it doesn't make up for experience. I liked the variety of holes and the fact you could play each hole a little different. Great scenery and views throughout the round.
Course conditions were good save for the greens. They were very soft and accepting of approach shots but each green was riddled with ball marks, both fixed and unfixed. They made putting a challenge as did the subtle breaks in the greens. Fairways were good save for a few dried spots but not bad. I expected the course to be more lush considering the rain we have recently had but still in good summer conditions. Overall conditions were good for the price.
I don't think you can go wrong with choosing Pinnacle right now given conditions.» Close
