Pull out your calendars and begin planning your family fall getaways early! Williams—the Best of Route 66—has lots of great offerings for 2009.

Elephant Rocks Golf Course in Williams offers some of the most scenic and challenging golfing in the state. The original nine holes date back to the 1920s, but top golf course designer Gary Panks reinvented the course in 1990. Another nine holes were added ten years later, and Panks made a return visit to blend the old with the new. The result is a stunning, 18-hole, par 72 championship course that consistently draws praise from visitors.
Amenities include a full-service newly remodeled golf shop, full-size driving range, putting green, and chipping and bunker practice area. Meet their new Golf Pro Brent Redman and experience great golf in a cool and beautifully scenic location. Group meetings and events can be scheduled at the Pavilion.
