About the Course

Highlighted by views of the Gore Mountain Range, Vail’s mountain-style, 18-hole course features unique fairways, smooth putting surfaces, and a scenic layout amidst the White River National Forest.

The fairways are tree-lined and generally flat, but numerous greenside and fairway bunkers, as well as beaver ponds, will test a golfer’s accuracy. Vail’s course features 6,739 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71. 

A course rating of 71.0/136 from the back tees and 63.5/108 from the forward tees make it a truly spectacular experience for golfers of all skill levels. Recognized by Golf Digest as a "Top 100 Resort Course," golfers enjoy watching their balls fly 10 percent farther in Vail’s high-altitude environment, while they challenge themselves on greens that follow the scenic Gore Creek.

Designed and built by one of Vail’s pioneers, Ben Krueger, in 1962, Vail’s course continues to be thought of by many as one of the best courses in the Vail Valley -- a must-play among locals and guests alike. Once the golf course is blanketed with snow, it serves as Vail’s Nordic Center during the winter months, offering 17 kilometers of groomed ski track and 10 kilometers of separate snowshoe trails
