Bill B

As always, love playing Rifle Creek!!! This is one of the best values in the area and the course and all the surrounding views are fantastic (especially the back nine). It was obvious that it was still only the first week of May because the invasion of dandelions had just occurred and the fairways were still in the process of coming into what will eventually be peak form.. Eric in the Pro Shop was also a pleasure!

Great Vacation Course

The front nine is quite doable and fun. The back nine can chew you up and spit you out! All in all. A great course to see the extremes of course slope rating!

Great Find

Found this golf course after daughter took a trip to the national park to visit the falls. Was so impressed with the layout, the pace of play, the weather conditions (yes late October) and staff. Highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a mountain course outside the confined conditions of so many courses wrapped by neighborhoods. We will make this course a mainstay for every trip back to the region.

Views for days

A few miles off of I-70 you find this hidden gem of a course. The front nine is more open but water comes in to play on most holes. The back is where the fun and views really begin. Long par 5s and elevation changes are just a few of the surprises that await you. Can’t way to play it again

Tough greens , challenging!

We live in Carbondale and prefer driving to Rifle to play the course over River Valley Ranch. The staff is amazing and the course is always fun! I had two hole in ones in nine months , on hole's # 9 and #11. Golf memories I will remember forever. While the back 9 seems more challenging than the front , the greens are fast making it tough scoring for the entire 18 holes. We think we will look at a season pass next year and really get after it! My wife and I love Rifle Creek Golf Course and can't wait to play again!

Good overall course

Staff was excellent. Greens in good shape. Course seemed to play long for its slope rating. Some blind holes that would be interesting to play a second time driving range and cart paths only fair
