Vail golf course opens Friday with 10 holes

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL ” The Vail Golf Club in Vail, Colorado will kick off its 43rd season Friday with unlimited play for $25 per person to walk the course or $37 per person including a cart. The course will have 10 holes open from 9 a.m to 6 p.m. daily.

The holes open are the back nine, with the exception of hole 15, plus holes one and nine. Golfers who use carts will be asked to remain on the cart paths during early season play. Golf course crews are anticipating opening the remaining eight holes within the next two weeks.

Vail Golf Club Director Alice Plain says the golf club is opening only 10 holes this week to accommodate work taking place to replace the course’s 40-year-old irrigation system, as well as to allow the greens additional time to recover from the winter.

The driving range is currently open from 9 a.m. to dusk daily.

Irrigation repairs take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and a half day on Saturday at the Vail Golf Club. No work takes place on Sundays.

The work is scheduled to be completed in late August. During the irrigation work,

golfers can expect a minimum of 17 to 18 holes available for play at all times.
