The Vail Valley is serious about golf. With 13 breathtakingly beautiful courses, this high-altitude destination is a golfer's paradise. From local public courses, to the championship Red Sky Golf Club, players of all abilities will find a course and an experience suited just for them. And, just in case you’re wondering, it’s true what they say. The ball does fly farther at altitude.
Located just 30 minutes from The Lodge at Vail, Red Sky Golf Club features side-by-side signature courses designed by two of the best names in course design. Tom Fazio and Greg Norman, have each sculpted a piece of Colorado into an alpine playground that rewards your highest expectations. Former PGA Tour player Larry Rinker is the Director of Instruction at the Red Sky Golf Academy, available for a variety of golf lessons. The masterful courses weave through 800 acres of historic ranchlands filled with sage, aspen groves, and spectacular mountain vistas at every turn. A grand 13,000-square-foot Guest Clubhouse, located alongside the Tom Fazio Course, features a restaurant with both indoor and outdoor dining, a full-service pro shop, and locker rooms.
