Chaparral Pines

Payson, AZ Private

Overview

About an hour and a half northeast of Phoenix, Chaparral Pines is a private mountain course designed by two-time major champion David Graham. The course—formerly owned by Phil Mickelson—is tight and demanding with tall pines and rocky outcroppings guarding many landing areas. The heavily wooded mountain setting is unique for Arizona, with a feel more reminiscent of golf in the Lake Tahoe area.
