The Upper is the second course at Whisper Rock, designed by Tom Fazio in 2005. Whisper Rock Golf Club is located in the north Scottsdale desert. The club is strictly private and only members and guests are invited to play this gem. At more than 7,100 yards, the course is declared as the Pine Valley of Arizona. The course is always perfectly maintained and the key to score low here is to keep the ball on fairways because roughs are terrible. Phil Mickelson is one of the 300 embers at Whisper Rock (he designed the Lower Course) and he is not the only professional player.
