Beaver Creek Golf Club: About
After the carefully designed Beaver Creek ski resort opened in December of 1980, renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. set eyes to create the famously narrow and challenging fairways of Beaver Creek Golf Club nestled in the canyon leading up to the resort. The club opened in 1982 and is artfully complemented by its impeccably-maintained greens, awe-inspiring alpine backdrop and diverse array of Rocky Mountain wildlife. Here, guests can allow the crisp mountain air to permeate their senses, promoting a sense of calm as they reach the apex of their backstroke, connect, and drive straight down the luscious green fairway. They say the higher elevation allows for a smoother carry and it doesn’t hurt that you may see an eagle while trying to score one.
Here you have an opportunity to showcase your skills in a challenging mountain arena while simultaneously sampling the grandeur of Beaver Creek and escaping any foreseen humidity by being in the mountains. Both seasoned veterans and aspiring golfers will revel in the astonishing aura of one of the longest established golf courses in the Vail Valley. Precise shot-making is necessary between majestic pines, a cascading creek and off elevated tees throughout the 18 holes on this championship course. The first three holes challenge some of the best, and the last holes lead up to the clubhouse with a stunning fountain and pond landscape in sight. Views of Beaver Creek Ski Area, home of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Championships, envelop many of the lush fairways and greens. The Beaver Creek Golf Club course is located in a gated community and set parallel to Village Road, which leads directly to the world-renowned and European-inspired, Beaver Creek Village. Don’t miss the courses’ cookie time at 1 p.m. where a ranger delivers freshly baked cookies and enjoy the two barns, including the Holden Barn, seen from hole 15, built by some of Beaver Creek’s first settlers.
For those looking to whet their appetite after a successful day on the tees, The Rendezvous Club at Beaver Creek Golf Club is open to the public, offering a delicious menu of American cuisine.
