As a former golf professional at Desert Mountain I had the privlege and opportunity to play some of the finest clubs in the North Scottsdale area.  I have ranked them below based on golf course, club facilities and exclusivity.  This is just my ranking so no offense intended!

1) Silverleaf ~ Exclusive, location is amazing, clubhouse is special, golf course a 9 out of 10.

2) Estancia ~ Tom Fazio at his best.  Golf course is a 10, clubhouse and amenities are outstanding. 

3) Desert Mountain ~ 8000 acres at the end of Scottsdale.  6 Jack Nicklaus courses (7th short course on the way),  clubhouses, tennis facilities...the only drawback is the number of members.  Many of these folks also join Silverleaf or Estancia.

4) Whisper Rock ~ One of the lowest handicap membships around.  Pure golf.  They do have real estate but golf is the primary focus here.

5) Desert Forest ~ Was the #1 ranked golf course in Arizona for many years.  Small, old school.  In the summer you may be the only person on the course.  

6) DC Ranch ~ Location is perfect to access Scottsdale amenities and restaurants.  Array of home choices, nice club, scene and golf facility.

7) Mirabel ~ Tom Fazio designed, sits near Desert Mountain but a much more intimate membership.  Frank Lloyd Wright inspired clubhouse.  Homes and homesites available.

8) Troon Country Club ~ Old school golf and club if you can say that in North Scottsdale as nothing is really old.  Location near Pinnacle Peak.  Tough to beat.

9) Desert Highlands ~ Host of the first Skins Game.  Dramatic elevation, built around same time as Troon CC.  

10) Scottsdale National Golf Club ~ Bob Parsons baby.  Private with a wild Member/Guest event each year!
