About

Holes 9
Par 36
Length 3501
Slope 143
Rating 36.4
Type Public
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.

Awesome surroundings/great course

Love the surroundings, very picturesque with Devils Thumb visible from almost every hole. Great layout and the course is in good shape. The cart paths need some work but if that's the only issue all is good!

Great Day!

Our group generally comes up to the mountains for a few days to golf. We knew it had been a little hot and dry this year, but you couldn't tell it at Pole Creek. The course was in excellent condition. It is a challenging course, but fair and fun to play. If you can play all 27 holes in a day, it is recommended. Very nice staff and the restaurant is good.

Overcoming rough winter beautifully

So, Pole Creek lost six greens this winter, including the first two on the Meadow. Yet the course is otherwise in great shape! Especially the Ranch. We are playing the Ridge, our favorite, in a couple of days and have hopes for a quick recovery, because this is a great course in a great setting with a wonderful final stop at Bistro 28. We wouldn’t miss it when we visit this area!

Greens are not good right now. Ok, but not the best. I still think it is worth playing.

Course had the greatest elevation changes I have ever played. The mountains are a great back drop to this course. We played mid afternoon round. This course was one of my all time favorites, will definitely play again. Couple of greens still coming in from winter but balance in great shape. This one is a must

Ranch 9 is fun and challenging

This was a 2nd time for this 9 for me and a 1st for my friend. The conditions were really quite good. The staff was very friendly. The layout was stimulating and challenging, especially #4, 6, & 7. #4 favors a draw on demand to keep par possible. #6 plays shorter than the marker says off the tee, and a previous run helped encourage me to club down to keep the tee shot dry. #7 is a demanding par 3 that requires a good tee shot to avoid dissatisfaction. Long and right will leave you mystified. This 9 makes you understand why folks like a membership here. Enjoy!

Great course, some winter green damage, but it's healing

This was our first 9 and a new 9 for both of us. Minus some of the really greens, the course was in magnificent shape. Apparently, the winter was hard on the greens. Still, it was a true treat to play. A very friendly local made it even more enjoyable with his knowledge of the course. With the course fairly full, walking Meadow and Ranch was a nice addition to the day. It was easily walked for those with the inclination. The wind added to the challenge, but it kept it very comfortable temperature wise. #1 plays stepper than it looks, #5 requires shot selection, & #7 isn't as steep as it appears. This is a fun 9!

Second time

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.
