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.
2023 Greens Renovation
The third and final phase of Vail Golf Club greens/bunker renovation is currently underway. Greens 2, 4, 8, 9, 10, 18 and the practice green are being renovated; greenside and fairway bunkers on holes 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 16 and 18 are also being renovated.
Cart paths will go through a restoration at a later date; all damaged areas will be patched and then a micro slurry seal will be added to all cart path surfaces end-to-end. This should take place during June or July, after daytime and nighttime temperatures have reached the appropriate levels.
Once the course opens on June 21, 2023, there will be six temporary holes to start: 2, 4, 8, 9, 10 and 18.
