Chaparral Pines? private championship golf course is an 18-hole, par-72 masterpiece designed by former U.S. Open and PGA Champion David Graham and noted Scottsdale-based architect Gary Panks. It was named one of Golf Digest?s ?Top 10 New Private Golf Courses in the U.S.? when it opened in 1997 and consistently ranks among the magazine?s ?Top 10 Private Golf Courses? in Arizona. Spreading over the Mogollon Rim country of northern Arizona, the golf course features a variety of challenging holes, beautifully manicured fairways and breathtaking views of the majestic landscape ? all of which exceed any golfer?s expectations. In addition, an assortment of intrinsic man-made lakes, streams and washes add to the serenity of the course. Thanks to Payson’s mild climate, avid golfers can enjoy year-round golf.
