Flagstaff Area Golf Course
With tantalizing mountain panoramas and enticing spectacles like lazy elk disappearing into pine shadows, even if you are the most serious golfer, you will have trouble keeping your eye on the ball at any Flagstaff area golf course. Public golf courses in the Flagstaff-area include the Continental Country Club and Elephant Rocks Golf Course in Williams, AZ.

Considered one of the top courses in Northern Arizona, Elephant Rocks Golf Course winds through tall stands of Ponderosa Pines. Owned and operated by the City of Williams, the 18-hole course is named after huge lava rocks that were perhaps spewed when neighboring mountains were forming.
Private golf courses in Flagstaff include Aspen Valley Golf Course, Flagstaff Ranch Golf Club, Forest Highlands, Pine Canyon Golf Club and Pinewood Country Club.
