Seven Canyons in Sedona has been named ‘One of the Top 10 Best New Private Courses in the US by Golf Digest magazine. USA Weekend Magazine named Sedona the most beautiful place in America and now you have the opportunity to experience this exquisite golf course, designed by Tom Weiskopf, for a unique time period. Don’t miss out on, “The most beautiful golf course I’ve ever played in my life,” stated Jean Michel Edery, business owner/real estate agent specializing in golf communities and properties.

Taking a page from the past, Weiskopf has created an Arizona masterpiece set in the middle of Sedona’s dramatic red rocks. A throwback to some of the great golf courses designed in the early 1900s, Seven Canyons is not long by modern standards, measuring 6,746 yards from the championship tees and playing to a par of 70.

Located on approximately 200 acres surrounded by stunning red rocks and 100,000 acres of protected national forest land, Seven Canyons puts a premium on exceptional shot-making with small greens, narrow landing areas, classic-style bunkering, mature trees, natural water features and constant changes in elevation.

Similar in many ways to the great courses of yesteryear such as Pine Valley, Merion, Shinnecock Hills, Winged Foot and San Francisco Golf Club, Seven Canyons was hand-crafted by Weiskopf.

“The design of Seven Canyons was a labor of love,” Weiskopf said. “When I first saw the property it took my breath away. Words do not give Seven Canyons justice. The challenge was to create a golf course that looked like it has been there for 100 years, and that was the most compelling reason I accepted the assignment.”

As a result, Seven Canyons’ true hallmarks are its beauty, shot requirements and overall personality.

In addition to the spectacular golf course, Seven Canyons includes a two-tiered “Practice Park” that some people have referred to as the most spectacular practice facility in the entire world.

With a dramatic backdrop of statuesque red rock mountains contrasted with more than five acres of emerald green turf, the Practice Park features a 20,000-square-foot teeing area with 25 hitting stations, a 5,000-square-foot practice green, four target greens and a chipping area with a practice bunker.

The Range House at the Practice Park features a casual, yet elegant restaurant for a convenient respite in-between practicing your swing or to return to after your round for a bite and your favorite libation while enjoying the spectacular red rock formations.

An invitation is extended to all to come and experience Red Rock Dining at its finest. Breakfast and lunch are served daily from 7AM to 5PM. Dine at Seven Canyons Club House beginning September 3, 2010, 4PM to 8PM, featuring Chef Chris and his weekly tasting menu and wine specials by the glass. Call Seven Canyons Dining Room for reservations and menu requests at 928.203.2025.

Hole #7, par 3, 198 yards from the tips.
Magnificent par 3 with spectacular views of red mountain formations from tee shot over water and a cluster of bunkers to the right and surrounding the large green. Watch out…the green is tiered in back so your shot will roll into the bunkers if you don’t land short of the pin. Do not overshoot this green. Be proud of par on this hole.

Hole #13, par 4, 490 yards from the tips. Risk takers beware taking the shot over the trees, balls usually end up never to be found. Tee shot works best landing in the wide landing area prior to the dry wash and severe dogleg left. You’ll position yourself for a straight 2nd shot to the green. There’s some uphill elevation which helps make this hole an even greater challenge. It deserves it’s number #13. Special Note: Our group saw the largest rack on a mule deer we’d ever seen, walking in the trees and wash at the turn of the dogleg. “The ambience throughout the round was so quiet, if you stood still, you could hear the wing action on a honey bee nearby,” per Nancy Howard, publisher of Arizona Golfer.
