Ridge Golf Course at Pole Creek Golf Club
Pole Creek Golf Club is a public 27-hole golf facility in Tabernash, the only one of its kind in Grand County. The holes are divided into three par-36, nine-hole courses, which can be played in different 18-hole combinations. You'll get a different set of challenges on each course but they each provide a classic round of Colorado mountain golf. On no other nine is this more apparent than the dramatic Ridge Course. As its name would imply, the layout features several dramatic ups and downs. Accuracy is key and having a good strategy is equally important. Golfers will also have to contend with tree-lined fairways and strategically placed bunkers along the greens, not to mention the occasional water hazard. The other two nines, the Meadow and the Ranch, are more mellow and approachable.

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.
High altitude golf
This is a great visual experience and very good condition condition course, the greens were excellent, oh yes bring an extra ball or 2.
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!
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!
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.
A little snooty
Good course. Treat hot deal tee time players as second class citizens. Mentioning the cost of a hot deal and vs. regular rates and why we are treated differently is a joke. Although Marketing and POS provided through NBC and GN for every course offering tee times.
Excellent fall day of golf in the mountains.
Course is in great condition and staff very attentive and friendly. Enjoyed the Bistro after an afternoon of golf. Always recommend this course to friends & family.
Holy Golf Balls This Place Is Stunning
One caveat to this review, my benchmark is courses in Dallas, TX, so I’m used to flat crappy courses....but my goodness. There truly are no words to express how unbelievable this course is. We started our round on the ridge course and it was about 61 degrees, second nine played the meadow course and it topped out at about 78 degrees. Each nine had a totally different feel, but I personally enjoyed the Ridge course a bit more.
Greens are in phenomenal shape but holy golf balls they’re fast. Like putting on concrete kind of fast. Hit a low burner and kiss your ball goodbye... high arching shot, they’ll hold.
My favorite golfing experience of all time. Ps if you’re traveling like me, they have regular flex Titleis 716 AP 1’s. Took a little adjusting from my normal flex, but still shot 82. Highly recommend as a must do if you stay anywhere near Denver, Winter Park or Boulder.
Snagged a hot deal through GolfNow to offset usual course fees between $59-$95 and then had dinner at course Bistro Lounge. Gorgeous surroundings and perfect day made for the best of golf finalized by walleye dinner and local craft brew.
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!
