While I thoroughly enjoyed playing the course, I have mixed feelings. The setting and views of the mountains are amazing ,especially for anyone who hasn't been in the Rockies before. That said, I have played many other courses that cost less and enjoyed more.

Great course with excellent service. fairways and greens in great condition. You need to watch out for the sand though as there are bunkers everywhere, but forgiving bunkers. Tends to get a little windy on a few of the holes because of the valley. A...More

We have always seen lots of wildlife along the Golf Course Road and even on the golf course. This year we saw lots of elk and deer. It is a beautiful drive not to be missed.
