Little walking during 3 hours of golf lessons but on your feet and active the entire time. Golf carts mandatory; if/when conditions have been rainy, golf carts must stay on the cart path with the possibility of walking 1-2 miles; largely flat terrain.

We’ll spend the morning at nearby Oak Creek Country Club, an 18-hole championship golf course nestled in the majestic Sedona red rocks. We’ll have lessons in small groups where professional golfing instructors will focus on swing mechanics, putting, chipping, iron and wood play. Our small groups will rotate between instructors as they address different parts of the game.
At the Oak Creek Country Club, we’ll have a plated lunch with an emphasis on contemporary, health-focused cuisine and choices such as soup, salad, pizza, vegetables, and lemonade, iced tea, water; other beverages available for purchase.
Next, it’s 9 holes of golf at the beautiful Oak Creek Country Club in the heart of Sedona’s red rock country. Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Jr. designed the course in tandem using many of their signature features such as tree-lined fairways and strategically located bunkers. The course is simultaneously approachable for casual players, yet embodies enough nuance to provide a challenge even for professional players. Already a pleasure to play on, the lovely Arizona views that surround the course are truly the icing on the cake.

Then, gathering in the hotel conference room with a local expert, we’ll have a presentation on a topic of interest such as regional history, natural history, or Sedona movie history.
