This facility, which was named to "GOLF Magazine's" 1998 list of "Silver Medal Resorts," has two regulation eighteen hole courses and a nine hole par 3 course. The courses feature an artful melding of European design and ambiance with American comfort and the splendor of the Colorado Rockies. The Mountain Course will provide enough hazards and length to test the most experienced player's shotmaking abilities. Water hazards come into play on four holes, and the greens are sometimes difficult to read. "Golf Digest" rated Mountain as the 20th "Best in State" course for 1997-98. This course, located at an elevation of 8,200 feet, offers wonderful vistas of the surrounding countryside. The Dave Pelz Short Course is Dave Pelz's first attempt at designing a course that integrates his own short game philosophy utilizing his techniques and practice philosophy. Each hole is less than 130 yards, but features challenging shots and tight bunkering. The nine hole Short Course lies high on the mountain and close to the lodge, so it provides a fabulous view of the new Valley Course. The Valley Course is a trademark designed golf course designed by Tom Fazio and this course can only be played by members. It has mountain desert terrain consisting of natural ravines decorated with sage and junipers. Phil Mickelson met Colin Montgomerie in a match here to coincide with the grand opening of the courses. "GOLF Magazine" chose this course 100th in the category of "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." for 1998. Caddies are mandatory if you choose to walk the eighteen holes courses.
