Weiskopf/Moorish Arizona Pine Forest Marvel

Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Golf Week Magazines have all raved about The Canyon Course at Forest Highlands, often placing it in some variation of a Top 100 Courses (US) rating: Private Clubs, Golf Course Communities, Modern Designs and so on. Locally, the Arizona Republic has often rated it the Number One Private Golf Course in the state. Tom Weiskopf (who designed the course with Jay Morrish) has said "I don't think I have aseen a more natural setting for a golf course." Play it once and you will find yourself in firm agreement with him.

Flagstaff, Arizona is a little over two hours north of Phoenix, straight up US HWY 17. You will also travel about a mile upwards in elevation, placing the Canyon Course, located just a few minutes south of downtown Flagstaff, right at about 7,000 feet. Obviously, at that altitude, the game is played seasonally, with the summer and fall seeing the greatest amount of play. And it is called Canyon for a reason: The terrain IS mountainous and it is encompassed by the largest stand of Ponderosa Pine on the face of the globe. So, beware, there are enormously significant elevation changes throughout the course, which led Messrs. Weiskopf and Morrish to offer up an remarkable routing... 6 par three's, five par five's and seven par four's. In fact, from hole number four to fourteen, every other hole is a three par! Where else have you seen that before?
