    Country Club of the Rockies Golf Course Review




    The Country Club of the Rockiess design wears the signature of the famous architect Jack Nicklaus and its currently rated number 82 in the prestigious Golfsweeks 2016 Best Modern Courses. That refers to golf courses designed after 1960, but its good enough in my book. The Country Club of the Rockiess golf course was opened for business way back in 1984 and since then it consistently received excellent rankings, being one of the best in Colorado. The course itself features a links style design and it stretches along and across the Eagle River, on a beautiful piece of real estate, with its layout being cleverly routed and offering its visitors an epic scenery of the majestic mountains surrounding the area.

    The Country Club of the Rockies is privately owned and available for its members and their guests only and the magnificent mountain vistas will make for an unforgettable golfing experience, especially if youre visiting for the first time. Another thing worth mentioning is the altitude, as the Country Club of the Rockies was built at an altitude of 7200ft above sea level and it features 7402 yards of golf from it longest tees, being located twelve miles west of Vail. Despite being a mountain-golf course by all metrics, the Country Club of the Rockies resort feels more like a regular inland links one. Thats mostly due to water, which comes into play on the majority of the holes, signature-holes included, especially the back 9 which plays along the majestic Eagle River. The scenery is breathtaking and the golf course is well known for its impeccable conditioning and especially the very fast greens. Bottom line, if youre seeking for the ultimate golfing experience in the Vail area, the Country Club of the Rockies is a must-try.
