What this means for golfers of all abilities is one unforgettable round of 18 holes after another. Adding to Colorado’s lucky links’ attributes, golf is a year-round endeavor in many areas, particularly around Denver, Colorado Springs and Grand Junction.
So what’s a duffer to do with so many options? Start with this quick summary of Colorado golf courses — broken out by terrain.
Mountain-Style Colorado Golf Courses
Colorado’s mountain golf courses are numerous, with many of them situated near major resort towns. One course that consistently receives rave reviews is the Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks in Silverthorne. With ample elevation changes from tee to green, this photogenic course weaves its way through aspen groves and along ponds with the spectacular Gore Range as the backdrop. In Eagle, just west of Vail, the Red Sky Ranch & Golf Club boasts two courses that present a considerable test for golfers — not to mention glorious tee-box vistas of the distant Sawatch Mountains.
