Courses in the area include Arrowhead at Grand Elk Ranch and Club in Granby Colorado, Headwaters Golf Course also located outside of Granby, Pole Creek Golf Club in Tabernash with 27 holes of classic mountain golf on three distinct courses.

Golf Scene – Tucked away in Grand County, the Fraser Valley is dotted with small towns like Tabernash, Granby, Kremmling, Grand Lake and Winter Park. These tiny communities are populated by die hard outdoor enthusiasts who spend the cold months of the year on the slopes and their summers on the undulating lawns of little known mountain links. Golfers are likely to fall in love with not only the stunning scenery, but also the charm of the locals who populate this hidden mountain golf oasis.

Play & Stay – Like other popular winter destinations in Colorado, just because the snow has melted doesn’t mean that golfers aren’t able to take full advantage of top of the line amenities. Lodging deals often with great golf vacation package rates in the summer months mean that golfers are able to stay in custom log cabins, urban chic condos and townhouses, hotels, and even private home rentals throughout the Fraser Valley. No matter what your taste, you are sure to find excellent golf and lodging deals that suit your needs. Do be sure to book your accommodations well in advance to lock down the best possible rates for your golf vacation especially if you are planning on traveling over busy holiday weekends.

Locations & Transportation – The Fraser Valley and Winter Park are fairly isolated as compared to other towns along the I-70 corridor. Fly into Denver International Airport and take I-70 west and into the mountains. Veering northwest along Hwy 40, vacationing golfers will traverse Berthoud Pass on their way into the valley below. Hwy 40 serves the tiny towns of the area and getting from place to place is quite easy. With a countywide population of just under 13,000, golfers are on their own when it comes to transportation. Taxis are non-existent in this part of the Centennial State, so hailing from street corners will likely earn you a wave from local passersby and little else.

Entertainment – Like other mountain communities in Colorado, opportunities for exceptional hiking, mountain biking and fishing are not lacking. Visit the natural Jacuzzis in the town of Hot Sulphur Springs and take a dip in the earth warmed waters and melt away any stresses accumulated on the golf courses.
