Had a great time escaping the heat of Phoenix playing in the cool pines at Elephant Rocks GC. Pace of play was ok, course was in great shape, greens and traps were perfect. The course has a variety of playable holes that are fun and challenging. Go with someone who has course knowledge if possible.

The course married the old forest nine and a newer meadows nine into a fun track. Holes 1-5 are in the forest with many changes in elevation. The next nine holes are on the flatter, more open meadow. You return to the forest and elevation changes for holes 15-`18. #18 is a fun way to finish par 3, straight downhill. Scott, Brandon, and Andrew; the pro shop personnel are tremendous hosts. A fun way to escape the heat of Phoenix and Prescott.

The course was in great condition and a fun setting for a golf course. We especially love holes 17 and 18.

We had golfed here several years ago and had looked forward to coming back. Be sure to golf here if you are ever in the area. FUN!

Elephant Rocks is an incredibly short course (about 6000 yards from the back) as are other courses in the area. This place separates itself with it's great conditions, pine tree-lined fairways, and EXCEPTIONAL staff. Everyone from the clubhouse clerk to the ranger made us feel like regulars although it was our first time there. Saw the ranger several times throughout the round and he always made sure to stop and see how we were doing, made sure we were having a great time. An amazing course that makes you forget you're golfing in Arizona. A true gem.

This was my first time playing Elephant rocks but definitely won't be my last! It made the 1+ hour drive well worth it. The first few holes take you through a wooded area, the next series is in a meadow-type area, and you finish in a wooded area again. Some holes like #17 are extremely challenging, while those in meadow are more than fair. The fairways and greens were all in good condition. The scenery was awesome! Overall, a really fun course to play!

It was a perfect golf day at Elephant Rocks. The temp was in the mid 60's, very little wind and not really crowded. This was the first time I played Elephant Rocks this year. The course had been opened for about three weeks. The course was in very good condition considering it had not been opened very long from winter. The areas around the greens were very wet, thus, if you hit before the green you would not get any bounce. The greens themselves were in good condition, but the roll was very inconsistent from hole to hole. The first five holes the greens were extremely slow. Holes 6 - 9 the roll was what I was accustomed to on this course. The back nine greens were very inconsistent and looked as though some were cut early and some not cut at all making reads very difficult. Ali in all it was a lot of fun! I enjoy playing this course at least once a month during their golf season. It is a fun course to play, challenging but not daunting for the average player. The scenery is awesome with views of the mountains. The GolfNow price was fantastic and look forward to my next round at Elephant Rocks!
