Beaver Creek Golf Club: History
The Beaver Creek Golf Club, nestled against the slopes of Beaver Creek Mountain, is one of the longest established golf courses in the Vail Valley. Opened in 1982, the course was designed by noted course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and is known and respected for its long, narrow challenging fairways and its stunning scenery.
Robert Trent Jones Jr, the son of a golf course designer, has designed more than 250 courses in more than 40 countries on 6 continents including The Club de Golf Alcanada in Mallorca, Spain, The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe in California, The Founders Golf Club in Sarasota, Florida, The Links at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, California, The Miklagard Golf Club in Norway, The Mines Resort and Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and the Santiburi Golf Club in Chiang Rai, Thailand.
For the past 4 years, in between golf seasons, Beaver Creek has worked to re-shape all of the bunkers on course, aligning them more closely with their original design, and in the process installing a new drainage system and new sand for better playability. Additionally, the clubhouse restaurant formerly known as Holden's has undergone a face lift and reopened as the Rendezvous Club, serving lunch and happy hour and other daily specials.
