Grand County Colorado Golf Courses


Grand Lake Golf Course


Picture an 18 hole championship golf course, carved out of the woods at an elevation of 8,420 feet bordering Rocky Mountain National Park. Designed by Dick Phelps, the narrowly rolling fairways surround well-tended, subtle greens. The majestic Rocky Mountains, some still capped by the winter snows, tower high above you, offering exclusive and unique panoramic views. It’s all yours for the taking at the Grand Lake Golf Course, where your approach shot just might be checked out by a curious elk, mule deer or fox. This is the closest of the Golf Courses to the Rapids Lodge and Restaurant, about 2.5 miles. Easy access to plan a golf outing!

Headwaters Golf Course

Located next to the Sol Vista Ski Area in Granby, this course winds through a beautiful green valley with soaring red dirt mesas. It is located just outside the town of Granby about 18 miles from the Rapids Lodge and Restaurant.

Grand Elk Golf Course


Playing 7,200 yards from the back tees, the par 71 signature course emphasizes natural features echoing the Heathland style, which derives from the British Isles. This magnificent course was rated in the 2005 Golfweek’s Top 40 America’s Best New Courses. This course is located in Granby about 18 miles from the Rapids Lodge and Restaurant.

Pole Creek Golf Course

Treat yourself to 27 holes of Classic Mountain Golf on three distinct courses:  The Ranch, The Meadow and The Ridge .  Pole Creek’s design was conceived by Denis Griffiths, who incorporated existing lodge pole 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. Yes, the ball really does go farther at altitude! This course is located between Fraser and Granby, about 22 miles from the Rapids Lodge and Restaurant.
