Beaver Creek Golf Club
Enjoy year-round golf in the shadow of cottonwoods lining Beaver Creek. 6386 yards of play are offered on this par-71 course. It is located southeast of Sedona, off Interstate 17, about three and a-half miles east of exit 293. Let the great blue herons and the occasional deer or raccoon play through as you enjoy the fabulous Arizona sunshine. The on-site Ranch House serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner to feed the famished and hosts a country band on the weekends. See website for fee info, event calendar and more.
A recent visit to the Beaver Creek Golf Course revealed a community that has pulled together and is rebuilding the historic golf course and restaurant. A community group of volunteers raised the money, acquired the property and rebuilt the buildings. As of today the driving range and restaurant are open. The driving range daily and the Ranch House Restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday and they have a brunch buffet on Sunday. The food was excellent both the dinner we had and the brunch. We stayed at the Beaver Creek Inn nearby and can't wait to stay again when the course is up and running.
The last time I played Beaver Creek was a very disappointing experience. The pro shop custodian had no business being around patrons. He was not in touch, did not respond to 3 questions, rang up the fee, did not give me a cart key, had no merchandise on the shelves and was completely un-responsive. In Fact ! on the RUDE side of things. The buildings are basically falling down. If the restaurant is on the National register of historic buildings, save some pictures, erect a plaque and bulldoze the area off so a possible sale of the land looks attractive for an investor. The course was in the worst shape I had ever witnessed any course ever.
The homeowners association allowed this decay to progress over many years. They forgot to factor what it would mean for it to close, (it now has). It is a shame to see this area under such distress. It is a beautiful spot in Northern Arizona that is sitting on top of the fantastic water source of "Beaver Creek" winding around the property. This property is ripe for a Golf Course investment company that knows how to market and prosper in today’s atmosphere. The wolves, "some are from with-in", are circling the camp and nibbling at the emotions of this community. It's a Shame !
This place needs an overhaul in a bad way. The fairways barely have any grass on them, the greens are completely burned out and the tee boxes are not mowed or taken care of at all. This course looks like it was abandoned years ago and they are still trying to make people pay to play...there is a reason why they say that they are the best golf deal in the Sedona area...I didn't want to finish my round and I didn't even have to pay to play.
From the second a staff member answered my initial phone call, I could feel the warmth and hospitality. They are very easy to please you, and I even got a rare opportunity to talk with the groundskeeper. Everyone let me know up front that they were experiencing difficulties with a couple of greens on the back side. Nice to see everyone was very straight forward. Now after hitting a small bucket of caymen balls to a variety of targets, I proceed to get BEVERAGES for the round. Bartender has all the cold beverages and is pleasant as a peach pie, as she invites you back after play. Because we were told of course conditions ahead of time, we are not expecting perfection. After hole #1 we now fall in love with the charm of this little gem just north of phoenix and just south of flagstaff (munds park) which was my origination. Just a lovely day on a new golf course which I have taken a few photos of for my new screen saver, until I play another new course. By the way twilite rate starts @ noon $20 /w cart.
They have a very special place not to mention all the history.
