Enjoyed 9 holes on this high mountain course(10,000+). Recommend that you play in the morning since the daily rains usually start around 1 or 2.

We took three foursomes out, and we had a blast. We had golfers of all ability levels, and everyone had a great time. Snow caps in the distance made for great views. Friendly staff and a slow afternoon (crowd-wise) made for a real relaxed environment.

You can't beat the scenery at this nine-holer. The course was in excellent condition, and the staff was very friendly, but it's the mountains rising beyond the fairways that will make this a memorable course. It's also far more reasonably priced than the resort area...More

Interesting layout. While greens are not protected with bunkers or water, there are a with a number of doglegs and the greens are often elevated. Combined with club adjustments due to altitude, it made for a challenging round. The course is currently in danger of...More
