Elephant Rocks Golf Course is known not only as an exceptional venue for golf, but is rich in history as well. Players have enjoyed golf here since the 1920s, but it was not until 2000 that Gary Panks designed the course into a true 18-hole 6,695-yard championship layout. This created one of the top 18-hole courses in northern Arizona. From the moment you arrive at the course, hidden in the tall Ponderosa Pines and passing through distinctive Elephant shaped rocks, you know you are somewhere special.

The golf course boasts some of the best conditioned greens around, as well as three of the strongest finishing holes in the state with tree lined dog legged fairways, culminating with a 100 foot elevation change from tee to green on the 18th.

In 2005, the course added a large meeting/party Pavilion, which is available for hire. This facility is perfect for hosting workshops, large parties and weddings. Most recently, the interior of the clubhouse underwent a remodel, adding a full service kitchen, and modern furnishings.

Elephant Rocks offers a full service practice area, complete with driving range and short game area with PGA instruction available. Please contact the Golf Shop to schedule tee times or driving directions to the course.

The course is located on Golf Course Drive, two miles north of Interstate 40, Exit 161. You can find more information on the course at www.Elephant-rocks.com., where you can book times online in advance or by calling (928) 635-4935.
