Fun, Early Season Round
Well, the Golf Now deal of the day screamed $15 a round, which includes cart (roughly $18 and change with tax).
So, needing to get a round in and get out of Vail Valley to a warmer, lower climate in spring, I decided to jump on the deal.
I grabbed a buddy and we drove the 1.5 hours to the little town of Rifle. Straight shot down I-40.
Arriving at the course a few miles north of town approacing Rifle Gap, the course immediately drew some comparisons to a similar course up the road a ways: Lakota Canyon.
Both courses have 9 holes on the "flats" and 9 holes snaking their way back into the canyons of the nearby bald rock and cedar.
The front 9 of Rifle was as about as boring and municipal golf course as you could get. Very little fairway grass or imagination with the layout. However, once we crossed the road to the Back 9, things got much more interesting. The Back 9 was in much better shape, prettier and much more fun and challenging.
The staff was outstandingly friendly and helfpul and we waited no time from car to tee or vice versa. Easy Peasy.
We both realized that the season was early and the course would become even better as the warm weather progressed, so we vowed to come back for another round, now that we know where to hit it.
Friendly atmosphere and great course. The pro is a great guy and runs things very well! Will return again and again.
One of the most impressive back 9's anywhere.
Super friendly staff. One of the best golf courses I have ate at, great food. Fun, but challenging course to play especially the back 9. The greens were a little rough I thought This time, but overall, course is in good shape.
We all like the course
We ail liked the course.we we'll be back.the lay out was nice.the staff were very nice.keep up the good work.
The course was great
I play the course a few years back and it's still in good shape.my friends well be back thank you all for a good time .keep up good job.
Great value for the money
Needs more on course beverage services. Been there multiple times and only seen beer cart two or three times. Front nine has fast, slanted greens. Overall I love this course, golf has become affordable and I can finally work on my game.
Thanks golf now!
Great course and beautiful location in the low rocky hill, back side is to die for.
Great course and even better restraint. The guacobacon burger was more than could eat. The course is in good shape and greens while fast were well taken care of.
Descent Course with great views.
Fairways in great shape and greens were good. Some greens were difficult due to slopes. The course was much more than expected given the price.
Back nine is fun.
We like the back nine which has elevation changes.
Very fun to play
Two different 9s offer challenges to all abilities. Enjoyed the views and had fun.
Wow... when we were teeing off on #1 a couple drove by in their cart and heard her say "now the fun begins". We figured out later why she made that statement.... The back nine is one of the most scenic and toughest 9 we have played. what a wonderful time.... Ready to play there again.
The course has a variety of holes which makes it very interesting to play.
I recommend this course. With a variety of holes links and distances it's very outstanding course for the price.
Good course, would play again.
Good golf course for money. Front and back nine totally different. Greens in good shape. Fun little track, not extremely hard but enough of a challenge to be fun. Staff very friendly. Enjoyable place to play.
great Value for mountain golf
The front nine is a traditional municipal type course and flat. The back nine are similar to Arrowhead with changes in elevation on 7 of the 9 holes. Great value for the very reasonable cost.
Lightning fast Greens and beautiful backdrop
I really enjoyed this golf course , from the ever changing/blind tee shots, to the pin placement and slope rating, this made for a challenging yet simple round of golf! If your shooting em straight, you'll have no problem owning this course. If your not on the other hand, bring a few sleeves of balls!
Fun course. Super hard greens!! So windy, it was ridiculous!!!
