The Beautiful Colorful View in Vail

We had a terrific time playing Vail Golf Club and the sunny weather was great. A little windy but we really liked it when it was on our back!! Scenery was magnificent with the Fall Mountain colors at their peak.

Always a challenge

I have played this course many times since the late 70’s. It is interesting and challenging. Especially the back nine.

Very enjoyable course (1st time)

The setting is great. Views on almost every hole worth a picture. The course was in good shape. The greens were good. There is poana on the greens that seemed to slow down the greens a bit. The fairways were in very good shape. There was some high rough areas. The driving areas are generous but if you do hit offline there is some trouble.

I played the black/blue combo tees at about 6,500 yards. I would certainly play the course again and would recommend to friends.

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.
