Where Play Comes First
Prescott is a playground. And Talking Rock, a private golf community in that classic western town, is a gateway to it.
When it comes to recreation in the Prescott community, there is no shortage of opportunities to get out and get moving. And when you own a Prescott retreat in Talking Rock, one that blends seamlessly with the area’s magnificent and open terrain, those opportunities for recreation are right at your doorstep.
Here are four types of recreation that are easily accessible at Talking Rock, a luxury community that captures the spirit of the west.
Keeping score. Talking Rock is home to world-class recreation facilities, including the Jay Morrish-designed championship golf course. With its friendly fairways and year-round play, the Talking Rock course offers ample opportunity to participate in organized tournaments, friendly scrambles, or a low-key round of best ball. Beyond the course, Talking Rock also offers tennis and pickleball courts, perfect for a tournament or quick pick-up game among friends or neighbors. Needless to say, the Talking Rock event calendar is consistently filled with recreation opportunities to suit anyone’s preference.
Make a splash. While swimming at Talking Rock is best reserved for sizzling summer days, there are numerous other ways to make a splash in the Prescott community throughout the rest of the year. Outside the gates of Talking Rock, explore Prescott’s nearby lakes. Grab live bait and a tackle box and spend the day fishing at one of Prescott’s lakes, or drop a kayak in at Watson Lake and appreciate the area’s unique rock formations from the water. Spend the day paddle boarding or enjoy the peace of the lake with a picnic at the water’s edge.
Take a hike. Prescott is known for its abundance of trails and offers a multitude of options for hiking. From petroglyphs near Talking Rock to the mesmerizing terrain of the Granite Dells, Prescott is a hiker’s paradise — especially with its mild temperatures. The city’s Mile-High trail system encompasses more than 100 miles of trails, offering seemingly endless opportunities to explore the area’s beautiful landscape.
Go off-road. Just as Prescott benefits from hiking trails, so too does it benefit from trails designed for mountain bikes and motorized off-road vehicles. Thanks to a robust trail system and an abundance of forest roads and other unimproved trails ideal for off-road vehicles, it’s easy to get as dirty as you want to in and around the Prescott community. And as an added bonus, the homes at Talking Rock offer options for additional garages, perfect for storage of recreational and off-road vehicles.
So, whether you discover recreation opportunities at Talking Rock in Prescott by golf cart, by ATV, by mountain bike, hiking boot, or kayak trailer, the one common truth is that recreation awaits — no matter what. And when the day is done, it’s easy to wander home to your own Talking Rock retreat.
