2022 Year In Review - Golf


The Vail Golf Club had a busy 2022 season with 22,859 total rounds of golf played! The golf course was in the best shape it has been in years, thanks to Golf Superintendent Jacob Tilmann and his golf maintenance staff. Thank you to all our staff for their positive attitude, exceptional customer service and hard work!

Maintenance Work
The 2022 golf maintenance season was a true success. During the spring, we completed phase two of our three-phase golf course greens renovation project. Golf greens 3, 12, 13, 15, 16 and 17 were completely renovated by adding a new sand base, new drainage and new bentgrass turf. We also renovated the greenside bunkers on those golf holes by adding new drainage and a liner for added defense against weeds and rocks. We also reshaped the edges and added new bunker sand.

We had another great year of Lady Golf Camp in 2023, with 15 happy participants!

Over 300 young players participated in the Vail Junior Golf in 2022.

The Vail Mountain School boys golf team won the state championship, the first time in school history!

For the first time, we hosted the Colorado PGA Women's Championship, a two-day tournament. Director of Golf Alice Plain finished in 5th place, a wonderful accomplishment especially considering she is usually too busy running the golf club to play! We plan to host this successful event again in 2023.

More Numbers:

  • Approximately 240 adults in group weekly lessons and clinics
  • 10 participants in the women’s only two-day Get Golf Ready class
