Golf Granby Ranch
Nestled in the heart of the Rockies, Golf Granby Ranch boasts unbelievable mountain vistas. It consistently ranks as one of the top public golf courses in Colorado. Formerly known as Headwaters G.C., the course originally opened as a nine-hole layout in 2001 and has since expanded to a full 18 holes and underwent a renovation by Nicklaus Design. The golf course tumbles across dramatically hilly terrain that does more than offer great views, it also gives each hole a unique character. Sand traps can be found throughout, you'll even see some in the middle of the fairways, which is a Nicklaus signature. There are also natural lakes and ponds that come into play on several occasions. The golf course can be a tough but six sets of tees make it approachable for any skill level.

Great course despite greens
Yes the greens are in pretty bad shape and there is nothing flashy about this course at all, but after playing Pole Creek, Grand Elk and Fossil Trace this week, we enjoyed playing here just as much and at half the price. Other than the greens the rest of the course is in great shape and the layout is really intriguing, especially the back 9. Signage is almost nonexistent, so study and follow the map on the score card. And bring your own cooler, food and beverage. You will enjoy this course.
Greens have really bad winterkill you can't even take putting seriously...30 to 70 percent of the greens were dead....rest of course in great shape .
Fairway condition was great. Greens were lacking consistency. Putting was challenging. Very bumpy.
Course in good shape, we had special on pricing, Hot Deal, which made it affordable for us, otherwise we could not play here. cart paths are dirt on back nine, dusty, bathrooms not good, water available and a cart came by twice for anything we would like to buy, drinks, etc.,
When we first drove up to the course we weren’t particularly impressed. But once you are down among the fairways and greens, it’s a fun and fair course. The conditions this summer are excellent and the wild flowers and other natural plants make the environment unique.
Most beautiful Colorado
Always enjoy the beauty and splendor of playing this course
Play here many times. Course in good shape, and a fun layout. I like the back 9 a lot, even if there are long distances to drive in your cart. Always a good value.
A fun, stimulating course with subtleties that emerge on repeat visits
This is a really enjoyable course that may be the best overall course in Grand County. The check in was seamless. The practice facilities were good. The conditions were excellent. The greens were consistent and enjoyable. Repeat rounds will make this more enjoyable and interesting as you pick up on some subtleties. Note, #16 has an area short of the green that isn't visible on a longer approach shot, so a drive up to preview it is worth the effort.... or consider laying up if you're not sure you'll carry to the green. This is worth the effort to come play.
Nice course sweet views.
Greens and course were in good condition for early season. Enjoyable.
Course in great shape and pace of play excellant. The back nine is somewhat confusing to mannuver, signage would help.
Take a snack for the drive between nine and ten. The scenery is breathtaking and not to be missed.
Windy and smoky, but interesting
Tough conditions last week at Granby Ranch, but it was a course worth playing once. I'm generally not a fan of the courses I've played in Grand County (I found Pole Creek to be overhyped and was just kind of lukewarm on Grand Elk) but this track was okay. I tend to like mountain courses that have more nuance to them (like Lakota Canyon or Eagle Vail) but in a pinch this course will do. Hole 12 was great, really fun par 3.
Fun and Fast
Our groups were first on the course, therefore, we played really fast. The course is in good condition. The greens are a little slow, but expected. Most of this course is out in the open, with few trees protecting it. The day we played was perfect. It can be tough on windy days. The staff treated us well. We had a great time and will return again.
Wonderful scenic layout and course was in tremendous condition. Greens challenging but also in great shape. Staff was friendly and helpful; cart service superb. One of best values in CO. Will be playing here again for sure.
We got rained out after five holes and they gave us a rain check. I'm looking forward to playing the full course again.
Played two days here and all 12 of us had a great time. Found the back nine to be the toughest, with the front nine having the best scenery. There are multiple tees to fit every handicap.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
The clubhouse is disappointing..... considering the quality of the course.
Nice collection of holes
Like many of these courses in the ski areas of Colorado, the views are magnificent. And Granby Ranch has plenty of those, plus some really good holes. No complaints there, because this course is a blast to play. My only complaint is the routing with some long distances between a few holes, including what seems like a mile on a dirt cart path to get out to the 10th. But once you get to these holes, the drive is well worth it. The 10th, for example, is a par 5 with the tee shot over water. Also, the greens will certainly grab your interest. On the back nine there were some questionable pin placements (near impossible putts), but we're chalking that up, perhaps, to someone just having a bad day.
