This canyon is a gift that transcends what we experience. Its beauty and size humbles us. Its timelessness provokes a comparison to our short existence. In its vast spaces we may find solace from our hectic lives.
The Grand Canyon we visit today is a gift from past generations. Take time to enjoy this g. . .

A dramatic elevated tee box on the first hole sets the tone on this 18-hole, par 72 golf course that plays 7,108 yards from the tips.
