spectacular scenery especially with fall colors

Course a littlewith rough around the edges but sits in Vail valley with fall colors on full display. Staff is
extremely friendly and helpful. Course seemed serious about pace of play and in a mixed foursome we played in under 4 hrs. Greens were inconsistant, some had weed or different grass causing bumps, others were smooth. Despite being in the mtns course is pretty flat, tees and greens elevated. Greens are fairly small so create a challenge, fun course and scenery can't be beat.

The course is varied and the scenery superb.

The staff were friendly and helpful. Pace of play was brusque but not unreasonable. The course is excellently maintained and something to challenge all players. Would definitely play there again.

Nice Vail outing

Classic course in a beautiful setting. Convenient to all things Vail and thereabouts. Greens still recovering from a winter ice sheet but otherwise a wonderful place.

Seriously?!

Are those even greens for that price? And if they are that bad from snow, then bring the prices down.

Don’t play

Course condition is Atrocious. I have played this course 10 or more times in previous seasons and the course was always very well maintained. The greens are terrible, the fairways are spotty. Many of the fairways are rippling like the mower made dips but the ground needs grading.

Disappointed from a distance

My college roommate and I were celebrating our 60th birthdays with a golf vacation. We traveled from Hilton Head, SC and Washington DC area to Colorado and very much looked forward to playing Vail Golf Club. I set up the tee time a month in advance. The layout of the course and setting were amazing. The entire staff were all extremely friendly.

However, we were very disappointed to find out, upon arrival, that ELEVEN holes had temporary greens. One or two may have been acceptable but certainly not 11. We should have been advised ahead of time and we certainly would have postponed this round.

With limited time, we wanted to experience the best golf possible. Unfortunately, our experience at Vail Golf Club was disappointing and frankly, not worth the price. I also rented clubs, adding to the cost. Most disappointing was the lack of response from emails I sent to the club.

11 temporary greens Will open after the forth and hopefully all greens open then. Played it before. Good enough course rather flat and easy but pretty and affordable. Eagle Vail better but greens in bad shape now

Most greens are not playable

No one told me that 11 of 18 greens are out of commission due to poor winter conditions. Most of the grass died. They replaced them with temporary greens in the middle of the fairway. Impossible to track distances or putt. Not worth the money even if getting good deals with Gold Now
