Type Public
Par 36
Length 3501 yards
Slope 143
Rating 36.4

Pole Creek Golf Club boasts 27 holes of championship golf, divided into three nines called the Ranch, the Meadow, and the Ridge. Though there are three different 18-hole combinations available, no matter which one you pick, you're guaranteed a round of classic Colorado mountain golf in a beautiful setting. The Ranch nine is more open than the others and the gently rolling meadows are less intimidating than the Ridge's dramatic hills. You'll face several tough carries over daunting hazards that include lakes, ponds, and strategically placed bunkers. Colorful native wildflowers accent the lush green meadows, making the golf course as scenic as it is challenging. The Ranch nine, along with the Meadow, are the more player friendly of Pole Creek's golf courses while the Ridge nine is formidable for even the best golfers.

Beautiful, tough mountain course

What a treat for golfers. 3 different 9-hole courses: Meadow, Ridge,and Ranch.
We played Ridge and Ranch. The Ridge course offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, lots of elevation changes across the holes. Ranch was more open with equally spectacular views. At one point on the Ranch course, we were treated to the sound of nearby coyotes calling to each other across the valley. Very cool.

We hit the right time for fall colors as well.

The course was in great shape (Sept, 2020). Greens were beautiful, but fast. Lots of contour to play with.

Very accessible to visitors - not too expensive. Free range balls with green fees. Very friendly staff.

The restaurant itself offers beautiful views. Food, I would say, is average, maybe even less so for dinner. Staff is very friendly.

If you are a golfer, do yourself a favor and play Pole Creek.

Great Course but the value is not unlimited

Love Pole Creek and it is a fun course with a ton of variety to it. It was a nice day and even with the fires nearby, we could not sense the smoke but, there was a bit of a haze to things. We got a great deal on Labor Day so, even better but I would cap out the value for 18 here at about 60-70 max and after that, it becomes too much, even for a good Mt course.

Not worth the price

I had high hopes for Pole Creek and it didn’t meet them. The course has amazing views and some interesting holes, but it was not a good value. I understand you pay more in the mountains, but for $109 (Saturday morning) the course should’ve been in better shape. The greens, in particular, were shaggy and slow. There was no water on the course or pencils in the cart (maybe COVID-related).

Overall, I felt it should’ve been nicer and more intriguing for the price. Keystone Ranch is a similar price and offers a much better experience in my opinion.

We always enjoy playing here. The greens are slow and a bit spongy, but there is grass and they are fine. Other courses in Grand county have much worse greens.....except for Grand lake and that course has best greens. Pole Creek is a great experience. Go for it.

Stunning golf course. Better than advertised.

We played the ranch and ridge courses. Very beautiful, very well maintained and very challenging. Much better golf experience, for example, than Torrey Pines.

Not quite there yet

Anybody looking for recent reviews to see what shape the course is in, here you go. Give it 3-4 weeks and it’ll be perfect. Cool track, great views. We played in a downpour and tons of wind and still had fun.

Great place!

My son and I played at poll creek yesterday. Amazing place! It’s the nicest course I’ve played in my life. We played ridge/meadow. The views were unbelievable and the course was in incredible shape. The greens rolled true, and the course is very scoreable if you hit decent shots. My only complaint would be that it’s a hard place to concentrate as you’re constantly focused on the views and beauty of the course. It’s a great problem to have. You will not regret playing here!

Great day!

Course is in very good condition. Could use a little more sand in traps, but other than that, it was great.
Beautiful surroundings more than made up for it.
Staff was very friendly and helpful, the locals were extremely welcoming, and the food was outstanding.
Price seemed a little steep for a public course, but I can't think of too many places I would have rather been today.
Definitely would love to play here again.
And while i didn't get to take advantage of it, $10 unlimited balls on the range?! Wow!

Beautiful course

Pole Creek is a beautiful course and well maintained. We played the Meadow and Ridge course for our 18. I played my best 9 of the year on the Ridge course. I definitely want to play Pole Creek again and would recommend to everyone.
