Antelope Hills - Prescott's Hometown Golf Course

In 1956, several local businessmen got together to determine how to develop a golf course for their Mile High City. Back then, Prescott only had a 9-hole course discreetly tucked away in a pine forest and it featured cotton seed greens and a watering system courtesy of mother nature.

Eventually the men concluded that some annexed land at the Municipal Airport, which had been an Army Air Force training base during World War II, would be the ideal location for their dream to become a reality.

These pioneers were aided by the fact that the city was anxious to find a way to use effluent water from a nearby sewer treatment plant. Armed with a loan from the First National Bank of Arizona and a solid design for the course, they persuaded the city to approve the idea and a few months later, Antelope Hills Golf Course was in business. Fifty plus years ago, the use of reclaimed water on a golf course at that time was a new concept but today is very common.

And the rest, as they say, is history! The “original” eighteen is now known as the North Course. In 1992, the South Course and the multi-functional clubhouse were built and continued the history of serving golfers as well as visitors to in the region. Both courses are owned and operated by the City of Prescott.

Mack McCarley, who served as Head Golf Professional at Antelope Hills from 1970 - 81, has returned to the course that gave him his start in the business. He leads a professional team that is poised to make your round of golf, a memorable experience. McCarley, has impressive credentials (he’s a member of the Arizona Golf Hall of Fame and the Southwest Section PGA Hall of Fame) and is now leading the charge to make Antelope Hills one of Northern Arizona’s top facilities.
