This typical Tom Fazio design is located at the base of Buttermilk Mountain. Fazio designed the course alongside the Maroon Creek, and it is surrounded by beautiful mountain vistas. The management considers this a world-class golf facility during the summer months, and a world-class snow skiing facility during the winter months. "Golf Digest" selected the course 3rd in the category of "Best New Private Courses" for 1996, and as the 3rd "Best in State" course for 1997-98. The fairways are wide, but there is strategic bunkering throughout its design, and the greens are large and heavily contoured. In addition, there is an assortment of creeks and ponds that come into play on twelve holes. The first four holes play over a former working ranch bordered by native sagebrush. The remaining fourteen holes meander through alpine meadows, climb up a canyon wall and play alongside Maroon Creek and a ravine. Of the several signature holes on the course, the most difficult is hole #7, a 196-yard, par 3, requiring a tee shot from an elevated tee to a well-sloped green protected by a creek on the left.

|This is the best layout in the mountains for my money. If you can get on you will love it -- Fazio, views of 3 ski runs, no crowds, caddies from Augusta, perfect greens and 300 days of sunshine/year. Don't miss the 12th hole -- a par 4 that looks simple at the tee box but stomps on your 2nd shot. I saw a black bear on #9 and several deer on #15.|
