What to Expect:  After a lengthy working relationship with Tom Weiskopf came to an end, Jay Morrish made a solo effort with Scottsdale National Golf Club. The course stretches out over 7500 yards and follows the natural contours of the ground. The final stretch of holes (15-18), known as Gambler’s Bluff, bring the course to exciting climax with a stunning par 5, downhill par 3, short par 4, and a lengthy two-shotter. Natural brush and cactus encompass the non-playing surfaces around the course while hundreds of bunkers provide a challenge within the playing territory. The fairways are generous but a full view of the landing areas are rarely offered from the tips.
