VAIL, Colorado – The Vail Golf Club will kick off its 44th season Saturday offering some of the best rates in Eagle and Summit counties with unlimited play for $30 per person to walk the course. The course will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and will feature play on the back nine. Due to early season conditions, carts are not allowed at this time. Golf course crews are anticipating opening the remaining nine holes a week from Saturday.

According to Vail Golf Club Director Alice Plain, even with the recent inclement weather, golf course maintenance crews have been doing an excellent job prepping the course and it’s ready for play.

“Our golf maintenance team has been doing an amazing job in preparing the course for this week’s opening,” said Plain. “The greens are rejuvenating quickly and are in great shape for this early in the season.”

The driving range is currently open from 10 a.m. to dusk daily. Golf lessons are offered daily by appointment only and include use of the club’s indoor golf swing analysis program and/or at the driving range. Lessons will be offered on the course beginning Saturday.

Happy Valley Grill also will open the starter shack Saturday, offering snacks and drinks.

Today is also the final day to receive early season discounts on season passes including Gold, Silver and 10 and 20 punch passes. Season pass prices will increase for the season on Sunday.
