Vail Golf Course Information
Nestled at the base of the Gore Mountain Range, Vail Golf Club offers a unique 18-hole, par-71 experience at a soaring 8,200 feet in elevation. This public Vail golf course is truly walkable and offers a full-service shop, classes, a driving range, a practice area, club storage, golf-swing analysis and more. Learn more about Vail Golf Club.
The Vail golf season typically runs mid-May through early to mid-October, depending on when snow melts and flies seasonally. Wondering what to wear? Given periodic rain showers typical of high-elevation mountain weather, we suggest wearing water-repellant outfits, and dressing in layers to add or shed (it’s mighty warm in the sun but can feel cool when it’s cloudy).
Looking for something kid friendly? Families will love the mini-golf course at the bottom of the Eagle Bahn Gondola (#19), accessed as part of Vail Mountain’s Epic Discovery Adventure Pass. You’ll play a nine-hole, par-three course boasting an educational wildlife theme and melodic sounds of Gore Creek.
