Jonathan and Maura Armus just moved into their new Forest Highlands Golf Club home in May, but they are no strangers to Flagstaff, Arizona or the Forest Highlands community. The Armus’ moved to Flagstaff from New Jersey in 1998: “too much traffic, too much congestion, too much day-to-day frenzy,” says Jonathan. “We were ready for a change.”

Make that a big change. After looking around at various cities out west, Jonathan and Maura chose Flagstaff. “We didn’t know a soul,” says Maura. “We just loved the area—especially the mountain elevation and the land. There was so much space. In fact we bought a lot with a lot of land and built our house—it was so different from what we had been used to.” The people were different too, more outgoing and social than they were used to back east. “When we first moved to Flagstaff strangers would come right up to us and speak,” says Maura. “They’d ask us how we were and if we needed anything, that was a big change from New Jersey.”

The perfect home in the perfect community

It was actually through several new Flagstaff friends that they first discovered Forest Highlands. “Living in Flagstaff, it was just a matter of time before we were introduced to Forest Highlands. We loved everything about it, right from the beginning,” says Jonathan. “Several of our new friends were members so we would get invited to dinner or to play golf or to go to the pool. We have also attended a number of private events held there. I think we knew early on that when the time came for us to find our retirement home, Forest Highlands would be the place. We were just waiting for the girls to get through high school.”

Actually, the Armus’ couldn’t wait that long. In March of this year—with one girl out in the working world, one in college, and the youngest still in high school—the Armus’ made their move. They bought a lot and eventually moved into a rental in Forest Highlands just 3 lots from their soon-to-be full-time home: they are looking forward to building their new home within the next year. In the meantime, they can enjoy Forest Highlands each and every day. “The whole experience has been perfect,” says Maura, “from finding the right lot, to working with the DRC, to the incredible staff who have all made us feel so welcome here.”

A year-round living experience

After their first month living in Forest Highlands, the Armus’ feel like they are…well, at home. Maura is looking forward to joining clubs and taking advantage of member programs. Jonathan is enjoying the pool and fitness center to rehab his ailing back. And the kids have become big fans of the pool, the hiking trails, and the fishing. Rumor is, the youngest is interested in learning how to golf. “We couldn’t be happier,” says Jonathan. “Forest Highlands does everything to a T. The property is gorgeous. The grounds are immaculate. There’s an endless variety of activities and amenities for everyone in our family. And as full-time members, we love that The Meadow Clubhouse and the fitness center are open year round.” As for her part, Maura agrees: “It’s been one month since we moved here and it already feels like home. I think the people here have had a lot to do with that. They are fantastic. It’s a true feeling of community. From the other members we’ve met, to all of the friendly staff, everyone has made Forest Highlands the best living experience we could have ever hoped for.”

Set high in the Arizona hills, far above the heat and hustle of the city below, Forest Highlands Golf Club is unique. It’s certainly not your typical golf community, even though it boasts two of the premier courses in the country. It is a vibrant mountain retreat in Flagstaff that truly caters to each member of the family—not just golfers. Members here are drawn to a dynamic club lifestyle that harmonizes every aspect of one’s life, regardless of age or interest. This has certainly been true for John and Sara Auran, member at Forest Highlands since 1988. “When we first bought here we were very young,” says Sara. “The first golf course wasn’t even built. But from the beginning, it has been essential to our lives—we have literally created a lifetime of memories here watching our four kids grow up. They are now all in their twenties and still love coming to Forest Highlands to this day.”

An outdoor haven for the Auran family

Kids have always been central to the family experience at Forest Highlands. Whether it’s young families with grade-school children, or more mature families with kids in high school or college, each has experienced the wonder of a community that grants access to limitless outdoor recreation and activities throughout the year. For the Aurans, wintertime is one of the most magical seasons. All of their kids have grown up on the nearby slopes, an activity that has been central to their lives. “Our children are all skiers,” says John, “and have been involved with the Flagstaff Ski Team. In fact, two qualified for the Junior Olympics. The location in Flagstaff is great. Arizona Snowbowl Ski Resort is only 30 minutes away. So Forest Highlands gives us easy access to great skiing year-in, year-out.”

“A return to childhood”

Besides skiing, the Aurans have immersed themselves in the wide range of amenities and seasonal activities at Forest Highlands at each stage of life. As their four kids—all adults now—have grown and matured, Forest Highlands has been a constant thread that keeps them all knit together. As a family they have shared the wonders of the Arizona mountains—that extend upward 12,633 feet—as well as a wide range of outdoor pursuits and activities that are a far cry from congested city life. “This has been the ideal second home for us,” says John. “Leaving the city and coming here is like a return to childhood. There’s a freedom and vastness to the living experience that we all have enjoyed. The temperature is 15 to 20 degrees cooler up here. The lifestyle is vibrant and healthy. The community is dynamic and strong. Forest Highlands has been, and still is, a very big part of our family’s life.”

“Our second home comes first”

Having been amongst the first 100 members at Forest Highlands, the Aurans have evolved with the community. Each year their connection grows stronger. Each season new wonders present themselves: the pristine, white-blanketed hills of winter; the fertile, blossoming countryside of spring; the star-lit evenings and dew-scented mornings of summer; and the resplendent, dappled colors of fall. It’s all a sight to behold—a sight that never grows old. “The older we get,” says Sara, “the more important and enjoyable Forest Highlands becomes. We actually downsized in the city recently to spend more time up here. In fact, we would not have stayed in Arizona had it not been for Forest Highlands. It’s where we belong.”

Division Leaders Post Sub-Par  Opening Rounds at 36th Trans-Miss Four-Ball

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Despite cool temperatures and periodic rains, several teams managed to better par in the first round of play at the 36th Trans-Mississippi Four-Ball Championship at Forest Highlands Golf Club in Flagstaff, Ariz.  Among the 62 teams in the starting field, 25 found red numbers on the challenging Canyon Course layout.

With the day led by play from the 8th tee and the Senior Division, Steve Van Herpe from Temecula, Calif., and Dan Pouliot of Burbank, Calif., set the pace by carding a 7-under 64 to take the first round lead in their division.

When asked about the keys to their game following their first round, Van Herpe and Pouliot both noted their combined effort as a key to their first round success.  “We were able to keep both balls in play throughout our round and each contributed four birdies a piece,” said Van Herpe.  Van Herpe continued, noting their consistent play early on as a key to their success, “we hit consistent golf shots through the first five holes when the day started with cooler weather and rain.”

Only one shot behind the steady and efficient play of Van Herpe and Pouliot are Bill Jackson from Oklahoma City, Okla., and Mac McGee who hails from Midland, Texas.  The team of Jackson and McGee managed four birdies on both the front and back nine, faltering only on two of the most challenging of par fours offered by the Canyon Course; namely, the seventh and 17th holes, which played 425 and 366 yards, respectively.  With their opening round 6-under 65, Jackson and McGee have six other teams under-par and looking to make up ground in tomorrow’s second round.

In the Super Senior Division, which is contested by players aged 65 and over, Dave Sheff of Dana Point, Calif., and teammate Rich Tolly of Laguna Hills, Calif., led with an opening round 67 at 4-under for the day.  Starting on the first hole, Sheff and Tolly stumbled out of the gate with a bogey on the par four 357 yard opener, but responded with two consecutive birdies en route to their division-leading 67.

Much like the Senior Division, multiple groups found red numbers during the first round of play, with three additional teams at one-under or better on the day in the Super Senior contest.  Heading into tomorrow’s afternoon start, the Super Senior Division remains highly competitive with 13 teams within 5-shots of the lead.

Better weather prevailed in the afternoon for the start of the Championship Division, which features players from the Mid-Amateur age group of 25 and over.  The largest of the three divisions in the field this week, the Championship Division was led by Ben Blundell and Jordan Cook from Oklahoma City, Okla., who posted an 8-under score of 63 in their opening round.  Blundell and Cook are not strangers to the top of the Trans-Miss Four-Ball leaderboard as they took home runner-up honors in the 2015 edition of the championship.  Blundell and Cook were bested in extra holes by eventual champions and fellow Oklahoma residents, Lawrence Field and Draegen Majors at The Honors Couse in Ooltewah, Tenn.

Blundell and Cook rang off six birdies and an eagle to get to 8 under and grab the first round lead.  Not far behind and finding birdies of their own are twelve other groups in the Championship Division, who each posted scores under par.  With darkness falling around the rugged mountain landscape this evening, play was suspended at 6:26 pm.  Competitors will resume play at 8:00 am (MDT) to complete their first round, ahead of second round play.

At the conclusion of 36 holes on Wednesday evening, the field will be cut to the low 48 teams (and ties), with a pro-rated representation from each division. A revision to the format this year, the pro-rated allocation of teams making the cut from each division is as follows: Championship (17 teams and ties); Senior (17 teams and ties); and, Super Senior (14 teams and ties).

Forest Highlands Golf Club is no stranger to hosting national amateur events. Previously it hosted the 1996 U.S. Junior and 2006 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championships on the Canyon Course.  Designed by the architectural duo of Weiskopf and Morrish in 1986, the Canyon Course was carved out of breathtaking forest and rugged mountain terrain. A unique characteristic of the layout is the run of six par 3s between the fourth and 14th holes.  The unique and challenging northern Arizona layout will continue to test competitors in an always exciting team Four-Ball format.

Second round play commences on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 8:00 a.m. (MDT). For more information pertaining to the championship, please click here. For first round scoring and second round pairings/starting times, please click here.

For the first time ever, the Trans-Mississippi Four-Ball Championship is heading to Forest Highlands Golf Club in Flagstaff, Ariz. On Sept. 26-29, a field of 128 players comprising 64 teams across three divisions will embark on the Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish co-designed Canyon Course in an effort to lay claim to this year’s titles.


The 36th edition of the Trans-Miss Four-Ball, an annual team best-ball championship, is scheduled for 54 holes of stroke play with three divisions: Championship (25 and older), Senior (55-64), and Super Senior (65 and older). Each division plays from separate tees and yardages and a separate champion will be awarded in each division.


At the conclusion of 36 holes, the field will be cut to the low 48 teams (and ties), with a pro-rated representation from each division. A revision to the format this year, the pro-rated allocation of teams making the cut from each division will reflect of the number of teams in each division at the start of the competition.


Forest Highlands Golf Club is no stranger to hosting national amateur events. Previously it hosted the 1996 U.S. Junior and 2006 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championships on the Canyon Course. Director of Golf Matt Bailey reiterated the connection the club’s membership has with the amateur game.


“We have a great membership and many who have played competitively in the amateur game for a number of years,” Bailey said. “Our membership feels strongly about giving back to amateur golf and we are looking forward to showcasing the community and the golf course.”


Designed by the architectural duo of Weiskopf and Morrish in 1986, the Canyon Course was carved out of breathtaking forest and rugged mountain terrain. A unique characteristic of the layout is the run of six par 3s between the fourth and 14th holes.  The unique and challenging northern Arizona layout is sure to test competitors in an always exciting team Four-Ball format.


First round play commences on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 8 a.m. (PST). For more information pertaining to the championship, please click here. For first and second round pairings/starting times, please click here.

Forest Highlands Golf Club completes $6.75 million renovation to clubhouses elevating the mountain community to new heights

Forest Highlands Golf Club, Flagstaff’s premier mountain, golf community for almost three decades, recently completed a $6.75 million renovation to both its clubhouses.  The clubhouses are located adjacent to the award-winning Tom Weiskopf-designed courses: The Canyon Course and the Meadow Course.

“Our members trusted us with a nearly $7 million investment in the future of our community,” says Forest Highlands General Manager, Bill Griffon.  “These renovations and the expansion of our facilities provide for Forest Highlands remaining one of the top private golf communities, not only in Arizona but in the United States.”

Designed by Scottsdale-based Swaback Partners, the renovations significantly enhanced the outdoor spaces of the clubhouses to take advantage of the dramatic views.  According to John Sather, Senior Partner at Swaback Partners, “The renovation and expansion of Forest Highlands’ Clubhouses offered a great opportunity not only to update the facilities, but to continue to evolve the community’s lifestyle to be enjoyed not only for Golf, but for Life aprés Golf. The completed collection evolved the Meadow and Canyon Clubhouses into true community gathering places for every member of the Forest Highlands community.”

Swaback Partners brings years of club and recreation experience to the project. The design team focused on how to create more outdoor experiences with expanded dining and lounge locations on the wraparound decks.  The dining rooms were also enhanced and modernized with a new luxury look and feel.  A new children’s center was added to the clubhouse, and the family recreation areas were expanded with upgraded amenities added for adults and children to enjoy.

More traditional club offerings were also upgraded including new fitness equipment, massage rooms, steam rooms, exercise room, an updated locker area and a new flex space exercise room.

The members are also pleased with the renovations.  Mary Robinson, Forest Highlands member said, “We are so pleased with our latest renovations.  Our membership came together to identify what it takes to keep Forest Highlands current in appealing to golfers, non-golfers, retirees, families and kids.  This promotes a strong and balanced community interested in its quality of life and protection of property values.”

Forest Highlands Golf Club has continued to see strong sales in the community.  In fact, sales in 2016 have hit an all-time high with nearly $23 million sold as of mid-August.  “We’ve had a great 2016 thus far,” says Griffon. “Buyers come here and see how homeowners and members enjoy world-class golf, tennis, kid’s programming, pools, cycling and so much more at Forest Highlands. It’s more than just a home, it’s a way of life.”

“The location, nestled at 7,000 feet in the ponderosa pine forest of Flagstaff, offers unparalleled views and a mountain experience that’s second to none. We celebrate all four seasons from the glorious 72 degree summers to the winter wonderland when downhill skiing is 30 minutes away and cross country skiing can be found throughout the community,” said Griffon explaining the unique attraction of Forest Highlands.  For 28 years, this private club has remained one of the most popular destinations for families. Golf Digest consistently ranks the two courses in their Top 10 in Arizona.
