Snowflake Community Golf Course

visitors-golfThe Town of Snowflake’s community golf course consists of an 18-hole course, and a 9-hole course. Lush greens, the shade of cottonwood trees, and the sound of waterfalls make for a relaxing yet challenging round. Built on land donated by developers, the course is a community asset, and as such rates are kept extremely competitive to allow access to the course by all of the general public. Tournaments, clinics, and individual lessons from the Town’s on-site golf pro are available. A nearby driving range, putting green, inexpensive cart rental, and restaurant and snack bar complete this one-of-a-kind community course. Call 1-800-600-9033 for additional information.
