a golf trip to Prescott!
“I just want to go to a cabin in the mountains with my friends and play golf.“
Prescott, Arizona is only 60 miles away from Phoenix- and it’s a breath of fresh air! A top 10 retirement city in the United States with views of the pines and mountains, and plenty of Wild West fun in between.
My golf friends and I packed our clubs and took a road trip during overseed season for Scottsdale.
JUST LOOK at this Airbnb we got- super modern, secluded, and with a stunning view on the back deck!
Unreal. We had 10 people total and it was the perfect space for everyone to hang out. Had some late nights playing shuffleboard downstairs, sitting by the fire, and hanging out in the hot tub. Crystal was the best host and we loved reading through her guest book of all the visitors from all over the world that have stayed at her beautiful home.
Luckily we all work in the golf business, so we set up tee times at Stoneridge, Capital Canyon, and Antelope Canyon.
Stoneridge GC is a course with surrounding views of Prescott on the whole course. It’s still a desert style track with tighter fairways off the tee, but conditions were great and the back nine had some unbelievable holes carved into the mountains.
Capital Canyon Club was my favorite of the trip!!! It is private but we were able to get tee times through our industry.
It almost feels like you’re in Colorado- the course winds through the pine trees and is more gettable than a true desert course. You get some serious elevation on this course. Conditions were PURE-greens were slick and the amenities (with a halfway house) were great.
Antelope Hills was the last one we played and it was the most laidback round for sure.
It’s a true muni track but that’s what makes it so fun. It’s a pretty traditional setup, so if you spray it into the next fairway over, you’re fine. After 2 days of grinding for skins, it was nice to play a course with the hole laid out in front of you. Greens were slow but drinks were coming fast. 😜
Day 1: Costco run for beer, snacks, and Red Solo cups.
Drove to our Airbnb in East Prescott, had an evening sitting on the back deck soaking in the views and pounding beers in excitement.
Day 2: 10:00am tee times at Stoneridge.
Lunch after at Colt Grill. Back to the house for hot tub, bonfire, and shuffleboard.
Day 3: Brunch at Bistro St. Michael.
12pm tee times at Capital Canyon. Grabbed big pizzas at Costco, pregamed, and went to Matt’s Saloon downtown for pool and Rumplemintz shots.
Day 4: Packed up the Airbnb, headed to Antelope Hills for tee times at 12pm.
Stopped at The Palace for a late lunch on our way back to Scottsdale.
In between all the golf, we were able to get out on the town and have some fun. (We were smart enough to avoid the casino though).
It was so nice to get out of the heat of Scottsdale especially when most of our golf courses were closed for overseeding- temps were a perfect 75 during the day and chilly at night.
Thanks to Stoneridge, Capital Canyon, and Antelope Hills for having us out! The staff everywhere were so nice and accommodating, and we really appreciated them getting us golf fiends out to play.
HIGHLY recommend a golf trip with your friends!!!
