SilverLeaf Financial: Pine Canyon Is a Family-Oriented Destination in an Alpine Setting

SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SilverLeaf Financial is the new owner of the 619-acre private golf course and residential community known as "Pine Canyon" in Flagstaff, Arizona. One of Arizona's best-kept secrets, and many residents will agree, Pine Canyon is a community that caters to families as well as passionate golfers.

Located adjacent to the Coconino National Forest, Pine Canyon is primarily known for its unforgettable, award-winning golf course. The Jay Morrish signature course features sweeping views of the countless pine trees and numerous ponds and streams positioned across the rolling fairways.

Many people don't realize that Pine Canyon is also a family-oriented destination, designed for families to enjoy themselves with their loved ones in an extraordinary alpine setting. One significant amenity that allows Pine Canyon to be family-centric is their exceptional youth recreation center known as "Camp Pine Canyon." The camp for kids features an assortment of fun activities and hands-on learning experiences for children of all ages. Kids get to experience the great outdoors and participate in arts and crafts, sports activities, and educational activities with others their same age.

The camp's amenities include three pools, basketball and tennis courts, a park and a lake stocked with freshwater trout for fishing. The children can also challenge their skills by way of the sport camps offered, such as soccer, football, basketball and cheerleading.

Shane Baldwin, a Principal of SilverLeaf Financial, said, "One of our fundamental goals with Pine Canyon is to have it be the absolute best family-focused golf and residential community in the country."

The new owners of the development are largely focused on providing a top-notch experience, with exceptional recreational activities for the entire family to enjoy.

"I recently brought my wife and three small children here, and what I love about Camp Pine Canyon is it's just for kids. There are so many activities and fun things for kids of all ages and skill levels. The professional guides that work with the kids create a dynamic and fun experience for them in a safe, outdoor environment," said Baldwin.

In addition to providing a comprehensive experience for the entire family, Pine Canyon's geographic location and climate make it an attractive choice for many members and residents. "The intrigue that Pine Canyon offers is its close proximity to major metropolitan areas in hot climates, like Phoenix and Las Vegas. There, daily temperatures often reach over 100 degrees during the summer," said Cary Clark, SilverLeaf Principal.

At 7000-ft elevation, Pine Canyon presents a cool escape from the constant desert heat, making it enjoyable for people to spend time outdoors and take part in the many activities available. To learn more about Pine Canyon, visit their website at:
