I played this course with friends last year and last week. It still is a fun, beautiful course to play. We were on the Ridge/Meadows 18. the Ridge nine is much more difficult than the Meadows nine. Many uphill and downhill holes. It's highly recommended for mountain vacationers.

What a paradise! The course architects are to be congratulated and I hope they know that. We had never heard of Pole Creek but took a chance on reviews to see a new place on vacation. What a great course and conditioning, we played Meadow/Ranch and will get back for Ridge another trip. The Bistro28 food was also special, dinner on the patio with the course and mountains laid out in front of us. WOW.

Pole Creek is a solid value in the Grand County golf scene. The course is well managed, fair and situated in a beautiful valley with fantastic vistas. After the round, one can also enjoy a meal at the course restaurant. Beware of frequent afternoon storms so come prepared with rain gear, though they usually pass quickly.

This is one of the two most amazing mountain golf course I have ever played. And this one has a bonus because it has three nines. Come play it!

This coure is top-notch. Wonderful clubhouse, great staff, challenging layout. Both courses we played (Ranch and Ridge) have water. It rained after the 7th hole, and we enjoyed a couple drinks and tasty apps at the bistro before we resumed play. Overall one of my favorite courses.

This course has challenging holes and the most amazing mountain vistas! The lupines were in full bloom in the trees creating a carpet o f blue, elk ran through the course, and the weather was perfect. The staff and clubhouse are great. It was a perfect day.

I had high expectations before playing this course (we played the Ridge and the Ranch nines), and I wasn't disappointed. Great views, terrific layout and lots of interesting holes throughout were the norm here. Conditions were also exceptional. There are several elevated tees where you can see for miles, including the ninth hole on the Ridge Course, a downhill par 5 with a drop of a few hundred feet where you can see 50 miles in every direction. The Ridge Nine, by the way, is the newest, so those greens are a bit on the firm side. You just have to adjust where you hit the ball because approaches will take a hop... Facility offers Golf Bikes, by the way, as an option.

The course is wonderfully laid out in the mountains, not far from Fraser, CO. They course is challenging and fair. The pace of play is usually very good. The practice facility is extensive and they give you free range balls when you play a round.

I played the Meadow and Ridge courses. One could walk The Meadow (and The Ranch), but The Ridge one really needs to ride due to hilliness and distance between some greens and next hole tees. Beautiful views, strategic holes, well-kept mountain course. Highly recommended.

Some challenging holes made this a fun golf experience. The course was in great shape for early season golfing. Rain showers kept coming thru but we could shelter until they passed. Vistas of snow covered mountains were spectacular.
