Two of the finest mountain golf courses are slated to open at the onset of May.

Beaver Creek Golf Club, 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. The course ranks among Golf Digest magazine’s “Top 75 Golf Resorts in North America.”

The majestic Red Sky Ranch & Golf Club is home to two championship golf courses designed by Tom Fazio and Greg Norman. 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.
