Balls really do fly farther at high altitude.

...but even if you hit a bad shot, the views are so good, you won't really mind. Mountain golfing is really something to experience, whether you're a seasoned player or not.  Didn't bring the clubs? Rental sets are available at both our favorite courses, Headwaters Golf Course at Granby Ranch and Pole Creek Golf Club.



Pole Creek Golf Club is Colorado’s Classic Mountain Golf Course. Their 27 holes were awarded “The Best Place to Play in the Rocky Mountain Region” by the Zagat Survey. Pole Creek is a par 108 beauty situated at 8,600 feet above sea level.  Their 10,709 yard layout offers both fun and challenges for any golfer.  Prepare to be awed and amazed by the surrounding alpine beauty and friendly service you will experience during your getaway to Pole Creek Golf Club.

Treat yourself to 27 holes on three distinct courses, The Ranch, The Meadow or The Ridge. Pole Creek's design was conceived by Denis Griffiths, who incorporated existing lodgepole pine, valley meadows, sagebrush and a variety of water hazards, including five lakes, to create a diverse course appealing to a wide range of golfers. The Ranch 9 and The Meadow 9 wander through lush fields, while The Ridge 9 showcases the "most spectacular view in Colorado."


Pole Creek is located just six miles from Devil's Thumb Ranch, and has rental clubs available. Please let us assist with tee times, and transportation if you require it.





Tucked into a secluded Colorado valley with amazing views of the Continental Divide, Headwaters Golf Course follows the natural landscape of the riparian corridor where the headwaters of the Colorado River meet rolling green hills. The course weaves naturally through native meadows along the Fraser River, with 18 holes to challenge and reward every player. While most greens provide generous landing areas, they are well guarded by deep bunkers, streams and ponds. Four sets of tee boxes make Headwaters Golf Course just the place for sharing your love of the game with friends and family.


Headwaters is located at Granby Ranch, just 10 miles from Devil's Thumb Ranch. Please let us help with tee times and transportation if you require it.
