Tom Weiskopf’s hands-on approach sets him apart from other course designers. Most PGA Tour professionals-turned-designers draw up a set of plans and hire someone to oversee the operations. Not Weiskopf he prefers to make all the final decisions. From tee-box locations, to the slope of greens, to the trees that should be planted, moved or removed, he has a vision of the finished product. And no one else can see it as clearly. Already acclaimed for his designs on the two high-desert Troon courses, as well as the Tournament Players Club and Flagstaff’s Forest Highlands, Weiskopf seemed a natural choice to design Arizona’s newest upscale membership course-Prescott’s Hassayampa Golf Club. Respecting the existing landscape and honoring the history of the course were strict themes in course design and construction. Instead of plowing down the tall chaparral, the course was instead sculpted out of the dense vegetation. As an alternative to disturbing the two environmentally sensitive natural creeks on the site, they became features of the course. The numerous boulder outcroppings offered features unique to the topography. In honoring the course’s historic value, six of the newly designed 18 holes run parallel to, overlay or dissect the original Hassayampa course built in 1919. An emphasis on manual care of the course results in a first-class charm. Wide cart paths are paved with hand-brushed concrete, instead of asphalt, for durability. The various elevations of the course, which range between 5,200 and 6,000 feet, allow for breathtaking views. While preparing for a tee shot, it’s difficult to overlook the 360-degree vantage points offered from many of the tee boxes. In the forefront stands the historical village of Prescott, nestled quietly among a circle of ponderosa pines that surround the town. While strolling along the nearly 6,700 yards of manicured fairways, golfers are treated to seemingly endless views of the horizon bisected only by numerous mountain ranges, including the often-snowcapped San Francisco Peaks.


The mild climate and year-round playing season attracts residents with varying intentions. Four categories of tees are offered: Weiskopf (Championship), Tournament, Regulation, and Forward. Golf memberships are restricted to 390 golf memberships to ensure that intimacy and exclusivity remain at a premium. Residency is almost essential to play this course, as usage is restricted to members and their guests, although social memberships are available. To learn more about how you can begin living the Hassayampa lifestyle and create a lasting legacy of your own, contact Brian Young (602) 405-3949 direct line.
