Slope 143
Rating 36.4

Pole Creek Golf Club boasts 27 holes of championship golf, divided into three nines called the Ranch, the Meadow, and the Ridge. Though there are three different 18-hole combinations available, no matter which one you pick, you're guaranteed a round of classic Colorado mountain golf in a beautiful setting. The Ranch nine is more open than the others and the gently rolling meadows are less intimidating than the Ridge's dramatic hills. You'll face several tough carries over daunting hazards that include lakes, ponds, and strategically placed bunkers. Colorful native wildflowers accent the lush green meadows, making the golf course as scenic as it is challenging. The Ranch nine, along with the Meadow, are the more player friendly of Pole Creek's golf courses while the Ridge nine is formidable for even the best golfers.

Great Course

Have debated for weeks for pull the trigger on this course as I ski in the area in the winter. So glad I did. Played Ranch/Ridge. Ridge is in the hills for sure, lots of elevation changes. Course is in great shape and greens are even better. I do wish the greens were a bit smoother and rolled a bit faster. Idk if this is a preference of the regulars but kinda bumpy and fuzzy.

Note: I give staff friendliness a 1 star because we saw the beer cart once and when I went in to the bar to get my card after, they self tipped themselves on one beer! I can understand a large group of 12 or something, but one beer! I don’t agree.

Fantastic Course

One of the BEST courses we have ever played. The only better venue was Kings Barns and we have played The Old Course, Ballybunion, Pine Hurst #2, Sea Island, Whistling Straits, Spanish Bay, Torrey Pines South, and a number of other great courses.

The views were incredible, the bunkers had good sand, the fairways were excellent, the greens rolled true! We played the Ranch 9/Ridge 9 - OUTSTANDING in every way!

Enjoyable day

First time to play Pole Creek but definitely not the last. Loved the course. Beautiful scenery and fairly wide fairways for the mountains. It will definitely be at the top of our list for courses to play in the Breckinridge area.

Easier The Second Time Around

If playing Pole Creek, you should try to play the Ranch/Ridge nines. Ridge is the best, followed by the Ranch.

Since we were familiar with the course, holes 1 & 3 were much easier to play. The Ranch is a nice course, flat except for holes 1 & 8.

I do not like the small GPS screen on the left pole of the cart. Hard to see with the glare and the small screen. Not sure the yardages were correct either.

If in the Fraser/Granby area - this is the place to play your golf.

Decent Course. Ranch & Ridge Are Better Nines

Pole Creek has 3 nines. The Ridge is the best, followed by the Ranch, then the Meadows.

Pole Creek has a nice a clubhouse and views are beautiful. The Meadows is a decent nine holes and a little tigher than the other two nines.

It had two gimmicky holes. Hole 5 woth a split fairway with a creek in-between, with high bushes. Not a visually pleasant hole. Hole 7 is a double dogleg left. When you stand on the 6th tee, the 7th green is at 4 o'clock. When you stand on the 7th tee, you're not sure where to hit the ball.

The GPS system is mounted on the left pole of the cart. Hard to see with the glare and a very small screen. I thought the yardages were not always correct and when you pointed to a spot to get the yardage, the remining yardage would not even point to the green.

We payed $111 to play the Meadows/Ranch on a Friday. On the holiday, we played Ranch/Ridge for $97. The prcing seemed strange.

Some of the Most Scenic Holes You Will Play

If you are in the Fraser/Granby area, this is the course to play. Pole Creek has 3 nines. Ridge is the best, followed by the Ranch and then the Meadows.

This nine has some of the most scenic holes you will ever play. You do have two uphill holes to get you to the higher elevations. 1 and 3. Hole 8 is a blind shot but you are at the highest point of the course - 8,812 feet above see level.

This nine is a must play.

Nice Course, The 2nd Best Nine at Pole Creek

Ranch ninie is the second best nine of the three. Relatively flat, except for holes 1 & 8. It is pretty course with the mountains in the background. Love the bunkering of all the Pole Creek courses, nicely edged. The par 3, 2nd hole is a great par 3.

Playing the course for the first time, holes 1 & 3 are difficult. Especially, since the GPS system was not working. Hole 1 is an uphill par 5, double dogleg to the right. Not sure where to hit your 2nd shot.

Hole 3 is a 90-degree dogleg left, that is uphill. You cannot see the fairway going up towards the green, They tell you to aim at the restroom. Visually, a tough hole.

3 World Class Nine Hole Courses

Pole Creek Golf Course is a must if you find yourself in the area. The greens are perfection and all 27 holes include some incredible views of snow covered peaks. Very helpful staff and the food from the Bistro is affordable and delicious. This course is worth every penny and shines in an area full of great mountain courses.

A Mountain Gem

We played the Meadows and Ridge nines, and cannot wait to return to check the Ranch nine holes. The course was in great shape and well manicured for springtime.

The entire staff was super friendly and hospitable, and the meal afterward in Bistro 28 was fabulous!

We will be back!

Great Mountain Course

2:45, using a cart, was truly nice. Intermittent rain did not inhibit play at all. It can be brutal to play from the woods, requiring concentration to stay in play. Greens were slow, but consistent and birdieable. Meadow hole 7 continues to beat up me; I’ll be back often to try again.
