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 and served 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 Oak Creek Country Club. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., and Robert Trent Jones, Jr., this course is truly a masterpiece featuring Sedona red rock views beyond compare. In the usual Robert Trent Jones manner, the fairways are classic tree lined doglegs with fairway bunkers strategically placed in the landing areas. The greens are slightly elevated and surrounded with large swirling green side bunkers. This golf course is considered "player friendly" — allowing plenty of room for error but always with an opportunity to recover and get errant shots back into play.
Hotel plated meal.
At the hotel, we will be joined by local musicians who will perform their western ballads and tales. Our performers are frequent guests at Southwest cowboy poet festivals and have been delighting Road Scholar participants for more than two decades.
