This is one beautiful golf course. It was perfectly groomed, greens were perfect and putted true. Fairly tight off the tee and if you can play all 18 without putting at least one in the water you will have really accomplished something. I'm a 12 and I last 2 balls into the water so be careful. It takes a while... More

What a beautiful setting for lunch, was able to sit on the deck and enjoy the view of the golf course. The staff was friendly and very accomodating. I had the small Spinach Salad and it was more then enought and delicious! Didn't get a chance to golf but really looked like a nice course. The weather was perfect!

This course is on a private estate some miles out of Durango and has stunning views of the mountains of the San Juan National Park. It is a short but difficult 6400 yards par 72 course with loads...

We are not golfers but our host at Country Inn Bed and Breakfast suggested we try the food. Good Choice! We had the prime rib which was cooked exceptionally well. The view from the outside patio over the golf course made this a wonderful evening.

The staff is very friendly and wants to please. We went on Tuesday for dinner which is Italian night where they have a guest chef in to cook. The food was good and sitting outdoors overlooking the golf course and mountains made it a very special evening. It gets pretty crowded by 6 PM so either make reservations or go... More

We have had lunch at this golf club restaurant on three occasions and enjoyed it each time. The staff is friendly and food is quite good. The view is my favorite part of the experience.

Went here as a last minute thought to driving back to Durango for lunch. Simple menu with burgers & lots of sandwiches. Sit in the bar or on the spacious patio depending on the weather. The view up the valley & golf course would make it worthwhile in any event. However the food is much better than you might expect... More

Great place to sit and relax and listen to the blackbirds. Beautiful setting. The food is basic clubhouse food, but has always been solid.

I live just five minutes from the course and have come hear a few times would easily recommend it. They have a great location and restaurant, and a great place to play golf.
