ay Morrish is one of the giants of golf course architecture. As a young man, he studied under such greats of golf design as Robert Trent Jones Sr. and George Fazio. He met Jack Nicklaus in 1970 and worked on all of the Nicklaus golf courses built from 1972 thru 1982. In 1983, Jay left the Nicklaus organization and formed a partnership with Tom Weiskopf. Together they designed such acclaimed courses as Loch Lomond in Scotland, Forest Highlands in Flagstaff, Arizona, TPC in Scottsdale, and Troon in Scottsdale, Arizona.
After his partnership with Tom Weiskopf, Jay formed his own company and has been actively involved with the design and construction of some of the top ranked courses both in the United States and overseas. Some of his well-known courses include The Golf Club Scottsdale, Scottsdale’s most exclusive private club; The Reserve in Palm Springs; and Las Colinas in Irving, Texas, home of the Byron Nelson Golf Classic.
“At Talking Rock we were given the freedom to design the holes where they wanted to go, without resorting to modern tricks or gimmicks. The course is a pleasure to play and to walk. It feels like it’s been here for years. I know it will please and challenge golfers of every skill level.”

Maybe the Ranch Compound of old didn’t have a state-of-the art exercise facility, but Talking Rock’s does. We named it the Barn because from the outside it really does look like a barn. On the inside, though, you will find the state-of-the-art fitness center our members are looking for. It features the best and the latest in equipment from and Cybex as well as classes and treatments you would find at the finest resort such as spinning, Pilates, yoga, and massage to invigorate you as well as relax you. Among other things, we host a hike through our 30 miles of trails on Saturdays.
The golf shop was the first building of The Ranch Compound to be completed. With a porch that goes around the building, this is a great place to gather before or after your round for refreshments or a meal. As you would expect, the Tack House has the look and feel of a traditional locker room yet it complements the rest of the Ranch Compound interiors – natural materials, use of wood and cast concrete counter tops. Members can select from full lockers or shoe lockers. Of course, shoe cleaning, re-spiking and other services are offered. You’ll notice pencil drawing by world famous artist Jim Fitzpatrick including drawings specifically commissioned for Talking Rock of the windmill, Juniper, Pinion and cactus plants found throughout the community. There is a separate men and women’s Locker Barn with showers right next to the professional shop.
Conveniently located next to The Barn Fitness Center, and the Ranch House, Coops features three baristas to help you with all your needs whether you need a cup of joe, a bottle of wine or a latte and the paper to go. The rustic feel of Coops including the cement counter, will encourage our members to come down and maybe sit for a spell.
This will become a favorite gathering place not just to pick up the mail, but also to grab a cup of fresh brew with your neighbor and catch up on today’s news.
