Aspen, Colorado golf courses bring the game to a beautiful location amid the fresh air and mountain scenery you can’t find anywhere else in the U.S. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a round while on vacation.
Luckily, you will have a few options to choose from during your stay. Hotel Lenado is located just 7 minutes from the first, the town’s very own Aspen Golf Club. The location is convenient and the quality is excellent. In fact, this course was rated the 21st Best U.S. Municipal Golf Course and the #1 Municipal Golf Course in Colorado by Golfweek Magazine.
The course, which was designed by Frank Hummel also comes with a full line of additional benefits to make your visit complete, including a learning center available for group and private lessons with golf professional Carl Rabito and the Red Mountain Grill, their clubhouse restaurant.
There are also several golf courses near Vail for you to enjoy, including one in Snowmass, Colorado. With a course that takes inspiration from the ranching landscape it was originally used for, this more advanced option is sure to push your skills to the limit—fortunately, there are five sets of tees for you to choose from. This course is open for limited public play opportunities after 1:00 pm.
Other opportunities for play can be found in Carbondale, Colorado, just a 40-minute drive northwest of Aspen. The River Valley Ranch Golf Club here has received its own set of awards with recognition from Golf Magazine’s Top 10 You Can Play and a spot on its Best of America’s New Courses list. Open to the public, its 18 holes feature the area’s natural wetlands and rolling hills terrain.
Make a round at one of these options one of the Aspen summer activities you try during your stay. We hope to see you soon!
