Emerald Canyon Golf Course
NEW WEBSITE LINK
This is the most fascinating and unusual golf course you’ll ever play, often referred to as the “Jewel in the Desert.” You may tee off over a ravine to a fairway bordered by vertical canyon walls on both sides or hit your tee at a par three to a green guarded by a deep canyon. Then again, you may stand on an elevated tee and gaze down at the mighty Colorado River and the numerous mountains that surround you as you feel you can see for eternity.
Located in the beautiful foothills of the Buckskin Mountains, following the shores of the Colorado River, Emerald Canyon can tan your hide. At the same time, few courses in America offer the fun and fantasy of playing golf in an arena that might be best described as the "Wild, Wild West Personified." Yes, cowboys would love this place.
The Golf Digest quoted “An unexpected pleasure. A fantastic unusual layout with stunning surroundings.”
The golf course offers a full service Pro Shop and snack bar. There are two (2) practice greens with a lighted driving range. Golf lessons can be taken from a PGA golf professional.
"Difficult but incredibly beautiful," said Steve Benton, who has been the head professional at the La Paz County - owned facility since 1991. "One thing you can't say, though, is the course lacks character."
