Best Golf Course — Best of Vail Valley 2019
1. EagleVail Golf Club
2. Red Sky Ranch And Golf Club
3. Vail Golf Club
favorite by tourists and locals alike, EagleVail really does embody mountain golf. Bookended by par-5s that start with elevated tee boxes, the course is a rollercoaster ride with the Eagle River, Stone Creek or forest serving as obstacles.
In addition to shots off precipices on the opening and closing holes, EagleVail’s Nos. 9 and 10 can also be called signature holes. Up in the forest, No. 9 is is a 452-yard par-4 from the regular white tees. It requires a blind tee shot with an equally challenging approach to a green guarded by two bunkers to the right. No. 10 is a dizzying dropping par-3, where clubbing down is strongly encouraged.
After making the turn, the course finishes in an aspen grove, where two short par-4s playing to elevated greens guarded by water (Nos. 15 and 16) will probably make or break your round. Bring your camera and a lot of extra balls.
EagleVail is open from May to October, weather depending, and its 19th hole is Mulligan’s, a great place to talk over your tragedies and triumphs on the links.
