View of Hole 3 at the Whipple Veterans Administration (VA) Golf Course.

In July 1919 a 2,809-yard, nine-hole golf course at the target range was constructed at Fort Whipple Barracks. This golf course served U.S. Army personnel, convalescing patients, and other golf enthusiasts. After the VA took over numerous hospitals in 1931, it built athletic fields and golf courses to provide recreational and therapeutic activities for its veteran patients during the 1950s. At the Prescott VA hospital, a six-hole golf course opened on September 6, 1961.
