About SedonaWith a population of around 10,000, Sedona, Arizona may not be considered a rocking town, but its red rock formations are something to see and they offer up a background for some stellar golf. Seven Canyons is a Tom Weiskopf design right in the middle of the red rocks.
Weiskopf didn't have a ton of land with which to work, so he made the greens small and put the emphasis on shot making. Sedona Golf Resort is a stellar Gary Panks design. The par-3 10th, with the red rocks beside the green, is one of the most photographed holes in the western U.S. The Oakcreek Country Club, designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Jr., is Sedona's first golf course. And like all of the golf courses here, make sure to bring your camera. The red rocks are waiting. In Sedona, some things never change.

Is Sedona Golf Resort the most challenging course you'll play? No. Is it one of the most unforgettable? Absolutely. Sometimes, a golf course is defined by its scenery, and that's the case here. The red rocks are so majestic they relegate Gary Panks' design to the back seat. That's not to say Sedona Golf Resort isn't a joy to play. It is. But it's the views around the course that make it special.
