William “Willie” Nelson

Oakcreek Country Club, designed by the famous father and son team of Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Robert Trent Jones Jr., can truly be described as a work of art. Par 72, the 18-hole championship golf course is nestled among the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona with views beyond compare, and the golf course design a masterpiece. The golf course is a traditional layout similar to those that you may find in the midwestern United States. In the usual Trent Jones manner, the fairways are classic tree-lined doglegs with fairway bunkers strategically placed in the landing areas, and the greens are all slightly elevated and surrounded by large swirling greenside bunkers. The course is “player-friendly”, allowing plenty of room for error but always with an opportunity to recover and get errant shots back into play. The golf course consists of 145 acres, including three lakes. Water comes into play on the front nine on holes #4, #6, and #7. On the back nine, the water comes into play twice on holes #10 and #18. “Every hole must be a hard par and an easy bogey” — Robert Trent Jones Sr.
