My wife and I enjoyed playing this golf course. It's isolated and serene. Pace of play is mellow and allows you to take in the forest and relax.

We arrived an hour before our tee time but asked if we might be able to go off early. They said as soon as there was an opening tee off. The first few holes were slow but then we joined up with the two-some in front of us. The rest of the round seemed faster and more fun. It's a fun course,easier than some but interesting. We'll be back.

Beautiful place and very friendly and helpful staff! Only drawback was it was very hilly and it was cart path Only. Makes a tough 18 if you have a lil age on you plus your at around 9000 feet. But will definitely play it again!!!

I've played this course many times before, but yesterday the fairways needed mowed. They may have had a lot of rain lately, keeping them from mowing the fairways. They were also mowing one of the fairways yesterday.

I think most golfers remember some courses over other courses for good & bad reasons. I think this one will be remembered for good reasons. At over 9,000 ft elevation, you won't find many higher than this one. The first thing that jumps out at you is the elevation changes. The 1st tee to green drops 150 ft!. You'll be impressed with the views on every hole and you may be sucking gas as you move along the course because it's cart path only! Fortunately, it's a fairly short layout. They fairways are generally spotty due to the elev. & rain. However, the greens are generally in very good condition but putt pretty slow. Only a few sand Bunkers on course and they were OK. Paths need some work in many places but they are functional. Overall, a very memorable golf experience. And by the way, the restaurant in the Lodge Inn next to the course is excellent!

I like to play The Lodge Course a few times a Summer. A great place to beat the heat of the desert. About 16 degrees cooler in the mountains. Also a fun, relaxing place to play and the thin air adds a few extra yards off the tee. Everyone should play here at least once.

Fun course to play. Love the first hole. Only hole with separate greens but such a challenge. 250 yards down hill playing 180 and 190 yards as number then number 10. Numbers 9 and 18 are straight up hill and I've yet to play this hole at par. Had 5 birdies on this course today. Lots of fun just can't seem to conquer that hole. O well some day. The staff very friendly. Very nice. Not a course to walk unless your in good shape. Did see one person walking. Course sets at 9000 feet.

If you have never played this course it is a must play. You won't find another course like this around with all the elevation changes. It plays short, and can make some good scores on a few holes. Hole 1 has a 150 ft drop! I have played this course for many years and play it every summer. Some summers have better course conditions than others but it is always in good shape compared to courses around. Don't pass this course up because it only has nine holes. You play the old Scottish links style of two tee boxes and two pins on every hole. It's currently the 7th highest golf course in the world.
