As part of our ongoing series of articles about summer activities in Beaver Creek, today we’re writing about Golf.
Two of the finest mountain golf courses you can play always open at the onset of May. You’ll enjoy awe-inspiring alpine backdrops, impeccably-maintained greens and fairways, opulent fine-dining establishments and first-class guest service at Beaver Creek Golf Club, and at Red Sky Ranch & Golf Club.
About Beaver Creek Golf Course
Beaver Creek Golf Club is just across the street from our condo. It is designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., is one of the longest established golf experiences in the Vail Valley, and is famously known for its narrow and challenging fairways, as well as direct views of Beaver Creek Resort and a grand opportunity to view Rocky Mountain wildlife while on course. We have played this course many times and have seen bear, fox, and deer on multiple occasions.
The Beaver Creek Golf Course is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and ranks among Golf Digest magazine’s “Top 75 Golf Resorts in North America.” The 6,784-yard par-70 course opened in 1982 and begins and ends at the edge of Beaver Creek Village. A short layout challenges golfers with elevated tees and narrow fairways.

Ranked by Golf Digest as one of “America’s Greatest Golf Courses” and by Golfweek as the “Best Courses You Can Play,” Red Sky Golf Club’s Fazio and Norman courses harness the sweeping grandeur and drama of the Colorado Rockies with views of Vail’s Back Bowls and the surrounding valley.
The Fazio Course is rated the #1 golf course in Colorado by Travel & Leisure Golf, with the Norman Course holding the #2 ranking.
Red Sky Golf Club is an exclusive golf facility that was designed as a private membership club with a separate limited access guest facility for guests staying at our condo.
Tom Fazio and Greg Norman have each sculpted a championship, 18-hole course that weaves through 800 acres of historic ranchlands filled with sage, aspen groves and spectacular mountain vistas.
