I have played this course every summer since my prior review, and nothing has really changed EXCEPT one major improvement. They now have an online tee time reservation system which works very well. Also, for some reason, this past summer when I was there (mid-July...More

I played this course four days in a row! Loved every minute of it. The greens were 11+ every day, the staff were very friendly and the course is outstanding! Cannot wait to play it again.

This local gem is never boring. Challenging and usually fast greens, but wide open for tee shots. Nice grill and a comfortable patio overlooking the course. Best golf at the best price in Durango.

This course as a pleasant surprise! The course sets high over the city near the college campus. The course was in excellent condition. The layout takes advantage of some great mountain views. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We hooked up with a couple...More

We did 9 holes. Well kept and staff were helpful all the way when needed. Anyone traveling with their clubs like we don't? Don't miss this course on a Mesa above beautiful downtown Durango!

I have not played the course, but a friend of mine who has played the course says it is just fine for a casual round. The price is great at $35+cart fee. As compared to Dalton which is $120 per round. Nice course, but go...More

The first 9 holes are under major construction so it's muddy and in disarray - hard to tell where the tees boxes are. The second 9 holes is a beautiful place to play. The staff aren't overly friendly but not rude either. Strange that the...More

This is not your typical public course. It was perfectly groomed, great layout, many elevation changes and variety between holes. I think the greens were running 12-14 - really fast. Of course, being that hard mid irons or better won't hold very well and don't...More

Not sure why the repeated poor comments about the staff. They were extremely accommodating to me, especially since I wasn't prepared to play & had to gear up quickly before our round. One of the guys even loaned me his golf shoes. As for the...More
