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.

Anyone can eat at the clubhouse, not just Dalton club members. This restaurant is very close to downtown Durango yet is situated in the center of the Animas Valley with drop dead gorgeous views looking north towards the La Platas from their covered patio and dining room/bar area. High end dining (steaks, etc) as well as casual far (burgers/salads) with... More

We had a great time at Dalton Ranch even though my score didn't always reflect it. Golf staff (cart guys and check-in guy) and bar/restaurant staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Our 4-some played the front in 2 hr. 10 mins. and we even let a single in a riding cart play through us. However, a walking 2-some was behind... More

I had a blast at Dalton Ranch Golf Club this week! The course is in amazing condition and rivals many of the high dollar resorts that I have played. I never hit anything longer than a 3-hybrid off the tee in order to keep the ball in the fairway. From the gold tees I only had a few holes where... More

Beautiful mountain views on a well groomed course...at the right time of the year, many elk share the course with the golfers.

This is a nice course but it is very hard. Not a place for your average golfer. The course is tight target golf with homes on every hole. We played on a Thursday and we were the first group out. They sent two twosomes out after us. We let the first twosome through on the 4th hole. On the 15th... More

Somehow, even with water on 16 of 18 holes, I shot my best score of the year at DR. Playing with my wife on a beautiful August day, we look forward to playing here again next year. Really good greens and a very friendly staff. Good mix of long and short holes - 5 miles north of Durango. Not sure... More

Dalton Ranch is a very good mountain course and the greens were in great shape for early April. It was good value including a reasonable junior rate. It has an interesting layout and can be quite challenging using the back tees. Friendly and competent staff.

This is not a course for hackers. Ken Dye has designed a challenging but lovely course. Some tough undulating greens with some tricky approach shots. There are some particularly interesting short par fours with risk/reward trade offs. The condition of the course of is consistently good. The holes along the river are particularly beautiful. Nice views of mountains up the... More
