Grand Opening for the Newly-Renovated Private Country Club Set for mid-August
PRESCOTT, Az. (June 26, 2015) – After nearly three years of inactivity, one of Arizona’s premier golf courses is set to re-open. The Tom Weiskopf-designed layout at Capital Canyon Club recently underwent extensive renovations and completed a total restoration of the former dormant golf course.
The Par 71, 6600 yard design features magnificent scenery from virtually every hole on the golf course. With dramatic elevation changes throughout the landscape, Capital Canyon Club offers a challenging, yet rewarding 18 holes for golfers of every handicap. Re-shaped and sweeping fairways give way to undulating greens, some widened and even made narrower to improve playability. With the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff providing an awe-inspiring backdrop to the golf course, members and guests of the exclusive private country club will be treated to a memorable round on the links in Arizona’s high country. Capital Canyon Club will open up play on July 1 while a celebration event is set for July 4. The Grand Opening is scheduled for August 15.
“We couldn’t be more excited to introduce a vastly-improved golf course to our members. Tom Weiskopf visited the Club last month and we have some exciting new changes being developed,” said Paul McLoughlin, Director of Golf Operations for the Capital Canyon Club. “It was truly a great experience to spend the day walking the course with Tom and discussing plans to further enhance an exceptional round of golf. The end result will be simply spectacular.”
Prior to his new position at the Capital Canyon Club, McLoughlin was Director of Golf Operations at the Lake Malaren Golf Resort in Shanghai, China where he was instrumental in the formation of the world-renowned Shanghai Masters with International Management Group in 2011. He also negotiated and planned a Final Series event with BMW that has since developed into the BMW Masters, one of golf’s top events.
“It has been a long time coming, but very soon members of the Capital Canyon Club will marvel in the splendor and beauty of what has been re-developed. From our grand and picturesque Clubhouse to our superbly-conditioned golf course to all of the other amenities which make our Club unique and special, we’re starting a brand new chapter which will surely be the forerunner of so many great things to come,” said Laura Scrivner, General Manager of the Capital Canyon Club, located just two miles from historic Courthouse Square in downtown Prescott.
The Clubhouse with turn-of-the-century charm and appeal features indoor/outdoor patio seating, stone fireplaces and a fully-equipped fitness center accentuated with saunas and steam rooms. With spacious windows providing ample natural light into the Clubhouse, breathtaking views of the countryside are evident from nearly every room. After the Grand Opening on August 15, the Capital Canyon Club will soon take full advantage of its enviable locale and offer weddings and other special events with the ultimate venue to celebrate those special occasions.
