Solid mountain golf pick in Colorado

It's a 1964 Dick Phelps design, so if you're expecting a bunch of "wow" holes other than the mountain scenery, you might be disappointed. But I found this to be a solid, straightforward course that requires accuracy and a good short game. Though it's only 6,500 yards or so from the tips, it will test every part of your game and is most enjoyable.. Of course playing this in the summertime at almost 9,000 feet certainly adds to experience for those of us coming from the hot South.

Terrible Golf Course

If you enjoy playing in a cow pasture- This is your course.
Played nine holes .
Storms came in. They would not issue a rain check being I booked on GOLFNOW. NOT that I would go back to play this golf course any way but they could have offered.
Terrible experience.

AZ Golfer

My wife and I hadn't played here since before the fire. Wow, what a dramatic change in the look of the course. It still is in very good shape. Great greens and great fairways. Always a fun course, we recommend that if you are vacationing in the area, make sure you play here.

Must play in Grand Lake

I loved this course. The views were beautiful it was challenging but didn't lose too many balls. The pace of play was a bit slow but it was a Saturday. The greens were pretty challenging but in good shape!

Second Time Around

Two of us played Grand Lake for the second time, the first being in 2021. Pace of play was very fast at 3 1/2 bourse on a Friday afternoon. What is most interesting is to observe the areas which were burned in the Troublesome Fire in 2020. Wildflowers were blooming in the burned wooded areas, and new homes were being built where others were destroyed by the fire. Good to see progress after devastation. The course playing area was not damaged, and is in good shape.

Still a good course

Landscape devastated from October 2020 fire. Kind of sad, a little tougher to get bearings without foliage backdrops. Course itself is in fine shape. Residents rebuilding. Pro Shop still nice, new carts are extremely comfortable. Distant scenery still fantastic!
I still recommend.
