Hidden Gem on Northen Arizona

This is a fantastic muni course. I've been several times and its always in good condition. A fun layout with elevation change, water, pine straw hazard, ect. Definitely worth the price and the drive.

A "Jewel" for serious golfers. Must play

IF your going to the see Grand Canyon and you are a golfer this is a mature course with amazing challenges on several holes. The middle "whites" are a 120 slope but plays more like a 126-28. The course is very mature. A lot of contours and for a mountain course plenty of water.

Great high desert course

This course is at around 7,000 feet. The temperature was at least 20 degrees cooler than at our Arizona home at 3.500 feet. This course kicked my butt but it was very windy. There are a few shorter par 4s to give you hope but some holes (17 par 5 for example) are very challenging to remind you that golf is difficult.

Best Conditions

Elephant Rocks is a summer fave of mine. The course was in the best condition I have played it in a few years. Well worth the drive from Phoenix. Fun course and great weather. Only downside is the restaurant food, but across the 40 in Williams are some good spots.

Great Course - Fantastic Price

Winter is coming and Elephant Rocks will be closing Sunday, November 18. I had a 10:00 tee time and temp was 35 degrees. Apparently I was the first to tee off that morning. The only cars in the lot were mine and the owner plus some workers. The first nine holes, fairways and greens were frozen.My drives were amazing with the frozen fairways! The ball just kept on rolling and had only a few short chip shots to the green. Unfortunately,, the greens were frozen as well and had to punch shots onto the green because if you hit them high they would bounce way past the green. Even so, the course was in great shape for this late in the season.. I had the course to myself and never saw another golfer until I was on hole 15. I play Elephant Rocks about 8 to 10 times a season and is one of my favorite courses in Northern AZ. The staff is excellent and the course is always in great shape and can hardly wait for the opening of the 2019 season at this gem of a course in Williams, AZ.

Excellent Experience Both Staff and Course

I brought a friend to golf there for the first time in Williams, and he remarked leaving the pro-shop that Greg is how all employees in golf should be. Very friendly and courteous, just like all of the others we encountered working there.
Course is in fantastic shape and defiantly worth the trip. TOTALLY GREAT EXPERIENCE GOLFING THERE.

Challenging course

The course was in the best shape we have seen thanks to lots of rain over the past few weeks. This course is challenging with a number of long holes since I don't hit very far. They have some very interesting holes and we like to play here since it's generally cooler than where we live. We usually see deer there as well.
