October 2, 2015 – One of Arizona’s most storied private country clubs has been masterfully restored after a nearly three-year absence on the state’s golf landscape.
Capital Canyon Club, which features an 18-hole Tom Weiskopf signature course amidst Ponderosa pines and magnificent rock outcroppings in Prescott, will reopen with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 3.
“We are so excited to unveil what is truly going to be one of the country’s finest high-elevation golf course communities,” said Laura Scrivner, general manager of the Capital Canyon Club. “The club is steeped rich in tradition and we have brought that important aspect forward in our redevelopment and the end result is simply stunning.”
Formerly known as Hassayampa Golf Club, the Capital Canyon Club, with unparalleled views of the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff from virtually every angle of the club is situated on one of the state’s original golf courses. The nearly century-old private country club, located just two miles from historic Courthouse Square, has a long and prestigious legacy in the northern Arizona community. Capital Canyon Club’s new ownership group has developed the new property as a “family-friendly” club with amenities, activities and social events that will attract every member throughout the year.
Dating back to 1919, the new Capital Canyon Club name, inspired by the gorgeous scenery of the area reflects the fact that Prescott was the United States’ first Capital of the Southwest Territory, as designated by President Abraham Lincoln in 1864.
