Resting at 7,400 feet amid the San Juan Range, Glacier’s award-winning Mountain and Valley golf courses pair challenging terrain with Southwest Colorado’s most breathtaking scenery. Whether you tee off beneath majestic peaks on the Mountain Course or discover the many strategic options of our Valley Course, your days are well-spent on the greens at Glacier.
Designed by Todd Schoeder and three-time U.S. Open Champion Hale Irwin, the Mountain Course at Glacier is enveloped by panoramic views that elevate the game itself. By utilizing the land’s dramatic topography and extraordinary rock formations, Schoeder and Hale brought to life a course that challenges even your most tried and tested strategies.
Initially designed in 1976 by renowned architect Arthur Hills, the 18-hole Valley Course has been modernized with new bunkering, hazards, fast undulating greens and tee-to-green strategic playing options. Golfers will find many elevation changes, challenging doglegs protected by trees and dramatic mountain views.
Polish up your game at the Mountain and Valley Course practice facilities, complete with a driving range and putting and chipping green — all complemented by panoramic views of the surrounding peaks.
