  • Went here for lunch with a friend. Have to say it was great. The munch menu had good options, staff was nice, and view was great. Had the pork belly Reuben and I would recommend it! I actually forgot some personal items here and staff was very helpful in holding them for me. Even if you don’t golf, check out the food here.
  • Nice course. Everybody on course very nice and professional. Club house gays n gals are very nice. First time playing there and guy showed me around. Great experience. Purchased a glove with fossil trace ball marker. Will play there agian soon loved it.
  • Had a great time golfing! Brunch was great and inexpensive which was nice. We ordered food from hole nine in the carts and didn’t realize we had to stop at the club house the folks on the cart were kind enough to bring it out to us! Course was quite challenging but a ton of fun thanks again!
  • Fantastic course. Great service. Everyone was very accommodating and hospitable to us. The views alone make it worth every penny. The course is very challenging but a blast to play.
  • Beautiful course. This place eats me up. Pretty tough course for an average golfer. But the views are worth the extra strokes! Incredible panoramic views of the entrance to the Rockies as well as both Table Mountains. Also love golfing through the canyon on the Back 9. I play here every Wednesday for a work League and have a great time no matter what I shoot. Just gained a new appreciation for the staff as well after losing a pretty pricey wireless speaker either on the course or left in the car last week went to the Pro Shop after golfing this week and they had it ready for me in the drawer. Impressive links and impressive staff five stars.
