EXPLORE GRAND LINKS’ COURSES
Granby Ranch welcomes you to the tale of two nines. The front nine holes weave naturally through native grasses along the meandering Fraser River. The back nine unveils elevation changes in a valley setting, providing soaring views from rolling fairways and greens. It’s a classic mountain course for all levels of golfers. With strategically placed sand traps, lakes and ponds, Granby Ranch offers 18-hole play for golfers of all abilities. This scenic course consistently ranks as one of the top mountain golf courses in Colorado and is open to the public.
Grand Lake Golf Course borders Rocky Mountain National Park and has a variety of challenging holes with spectacular views from every tee. The course is Rocky Mountain golf at its best. The course was designed by renowned golf course architect Dick Phelps with its rolling fairways and undulating greens surrounded by lodgepole pines, aspens, and colorful native flora is sure to be a favorite. Moose, elk, deer, fox, and other wildlife are often spectators during a round and add to a memorable, unique mountain golf experience.
Grand Elk was inspired by the inland courses of the British Isles with low lying vegetation and rolling terrain. It is Grand County’s only “Heathland” style golf course, and showcases the rugged natural beauty you’d expect to find in Colorado. Designed to challenge the imagination and creativity of the finest golfers by using the rolling terrain and natural contours to influence shot making, it’s also perfectly suited for all golfers because of the five tee boxes and the family tees. As of 2017 – we now carry GolfBoards – reserve one ahead of time, supply is limited!
Pole Creek Golf Club is everything you’d want and expect out of a Colorado golf course. Located at 8,600 feet of elevation, Pole Creek is sure to impress every golfer – whether it’s a first timer or seasoned veteran – with 360 degrees of stunning mountain views and a vast diversity of terrain. The course has rightfully earned a number of prestigious accolades, including “Best Mountain Golf Course” by Colorado AvidGolfer the past 3 consecutive seasons, in addition to top-three nods for “Best Views,” “Best Wildlife” and “Best Après Golf” the past 2 years.
