When most people think of Arizona courses, they think of the desert courses of Tucson and Phoenix. But Flagstaff, two hours north of Phoenix in a completely different climate, is home to what may be the best golf course in the state, Forest Highlands.
Forest Highlands could easily make my Top 10 list. Designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, the property is nestled in among tall pine trees that frame the snowcapped San Francisco Peaks in the distance. Elevation changes abound at Forest Highlands, and many of the holes play downhill through those towering pines. The course is only open in the summer, and we were blessed with a perfect day. We were blown away by this golf experience. Larry Berle.
