Great golf course especially for a public course. Views unbelievable. Feels like you are at a country club - friendly efficient staff. Great lunch after golf with views of Gore Mountains

Vail Golf Club

This course is in a beautiful spot with stunning Mountain View’s all day. The two temporary greens were disappointing. Obviously there are some issues with several greens as patches of new sod have been put in. Some of the greens were really slow- probably an attempt to get the grass to grow. Other than that problem the course was fun to play.

Vail Golf Club July 3 2021

Vail Golf Club is a good track adjacent to I70 in the Vail Valley. The course layout is out and back with some interesting holes along the River. The fairways and tees were in great shape but the greens were a bit slow and shaggy. Otherwise the experience was great as was the weather.

Public yet feels private

The course itself was great, nestled in the Vail valley with amazing views of the gore mountain range. The one thing that blew me away was as soon as I showed up, I was treated as though I were a member at an exclusive club. The staff was friendly, courteous and went out of their way to ensure I was taken care of. I’ve never been to a public course where they load and clean your clubs before and after a round. Bonuses: pro shop has an amazing selection of new merch with a great restaurant above that overlooks the 18th green. Also it’s probably one of the cheapest courses in the area.
