Nestled within the Colorado Rockies, Grand Elk Golf Club in Granby, Colo. offers stunning mountain views from every hole. The course has a links-layout inspired by the inland golf courses of the British Isles. The low-lying vegetation and gently rolling terrain lend a heathland feel to the course. The fairways are wide and undulating and the large greens have ample contours as well. The layout has an interesting mix of holes with some that are straightforward and others that twist into tricky doglegs, but nearly all are flanked with sod-faced bunkers. There are more than 60 bunkers coming into play throughout Grand Elk Golf Club, and water hazards come into play on four holes. Besides just being a fun and challenging round, the magnificent views that stretch across the snow-capped peaks of the Continental Divide are not to be missed.

Beautiful & Challenging Course!

This is our second time to play Grand Elk and I think we loved it even more this year than last. The entire course was in excellent shape. It's tough... some very challenging holes. But, it's a fair course that we look forward to playing again when we return next year! It's quickly become one of our favorites.

Beautiful course and location

Loved the round, pretty difficult course to play. Would be nice to have a hole here and there that isn't protected by sand traps up front. Ouch. But definitely enjoyed it!

Great value...fun track

Course is in really good condition. Fun layout with some hidden trouble but overall a great course for the money.

They should pay attention to slow golfers. The group in front of us was really slow and they were not letting people play through.

Surprisingly strange layout, but still worth playing

Played this course with my dad and another solo golfer. We ended up playing 3 of the tees: Solo guy played the tips and was clearly a scratch golfer, I played the blues (5-6 handicap) and my dad played the greens (senior golfer, 15-17 handicap). From the back 2 tee boxes there are several blind (or mostly obscured) tee shots. Not a problem if you trust your driver or have a trusty 3 wood for distance control. 3 long par 3's on the front. Pay attention to the course map to figure out where hazards are, and distances to bunkers. Many bunkers are in the middle of the fairway, at typical driver distance (starting with #1). Greens are soft and hold well but have mixed speeds from hole to hole so it's hard to get a feel for pace.
Friendly staff and easy check in process.
Nice range to warm up on. Did not see a practice green but there may be one there.
GPS on carts in helpful.
Somewhat inconsistent sand in bunkers, be sure to test it with your feet as you take a stance, many were fairly packed and a little wet, so not much hope of sliding under the ball.
Got a good price through GolfNow at ~$65, and was happy with it at that price.
Very nice grass on tee boxes and fairways.
It's clear they are taking COVID protocols seriously: check-in window so going inside is optional, some sort of ball retrieval mechanism on each flagstick; restroom doors permanently open with new partitians, thorough spray down and rinse of carts after each round is finished. Free bottles of water and ice for cooler included with the round.

You might need a caddy . . .

Great course, but playing it for the first time is very tough. Several blind tee shots and forced carries makes it even more difficult for the shorter hitters. Knowing the wind direction also is important as the direction of play is greatly influenced by the weather. Would definitely play again. Greens sometimes were a bit rough, but that's a mountain course for you.

Very friendly staff and service.
