Excellent place to play.

This course was a great find. The staff met us at the car with the golf cart and then came to get the cart when we put our bags away. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The snack bar has extremely fair prices. The round was good for us playing on a golf now hot deal but normal rates are steep in the morning and get a little more fair later in the day. The back drop makes this course so nice. It is a bit difficult if you miss the fairway and first few feet of rough. A few lost balls and broken shaft on a rock underground when I missed the fairway. I will play here again when we come back.

A course with views

What a great course in the pristine condition. From the moment you arrive you feel welcomed. The staff is great willing to help with any questions or concerns. From the first tee box to the last, this course has some of the most spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains. It's almost difficult to play shots with all the views. The course is well maintained. Greens are tough and it's best to try to keep your ball I'm the fairways because the rough can add unwanted strokes. My daughter and I played it on a Friday and had so much fun we went back for a second round the day before we left from our vacation. I highly recommend to play this course.

Nice course and layout, but the greens are in rough shape, not worth full price. The info about the greens would have been good to know before hand.

Gem in the woods

EXCELLENT place to play. Greeted by a friendly young man who brought the cart toys when we parked. Great GN price & the course was fun to play but with the early season, the lack of good greens actually improved my score with a MAX 2 putt on 70% of the as well as temp greens. My husband and I will drive back to play, have dinner for the price is cheaper than where we live for one round.

Amazing views

Course was very well maintained and the views were amazing. Play was very slow as they had a tournament finishing up in front of us. Didn't get to finish the round due to time restraints. Will definitely go back and play it again.

Loved playing at Grand Lake GC

Grand Lake GC is fun 18 hole course. Some holes are pretty wide open and most holes you won't lose your golf ball. Some holes are more interesting than others but all in all, I really loved playing lthe course. Great value...

Perfect weather

Solid mountain golf pick in Colorado

It's a 1964 Dick Phelps design, so if you're expecting a bunch of "wow" holes other than the mountain scenery, you might be disappointed. But I found this to be a solid, straightforward course that requires accuracy and a good short game. Though it's only 6,500 yards or so from the tips, it will test every part of your game and is most enjoyable.. Of course playing this in the summertime at almost 9,000 feet certainly adds to experience for those of us coming from the hot South.

Great conditions, super greens, friendly staff!

Every green was immaculate, fairways, tee boxes all exceptional. The staff were very accommodating. Staff greeted us at our car and brought the cart to us there! It wasn't crowded so maybe this was the exception. Beautiful locale as well. Scenic throughout. Of course it is, it's in the Rockies!

Great views from the course

Though storms and rain through the first few holes, the weather cleared and the rest of the round was great. We did not have to worry about our pace as there were very few golfers on the course until the weather cleared. Loved the views and the elevation changes through the course.

$50?!?!?!

$50 for this course is a JOKE!!! I would have felt ripped off paying $15. Fairways are awful, tee boxes awful, the staff is rude, the carts are dirty and give you whiplash, no concessions. Whoever called it a hidden gem must have not played it in a while. It has gone way down hill!!! I would suggest playing somewhere else.

I am not sure how this review can be written on the day played 2/25/17. The course has been closed for several months because in is covered with snow. They may have the wrong course.

Why not leave a rating on Mother Nature's website if she kept you from playing more than 5 holes? Not sure how the course deserves 2 stars for that.
