Golf in Estes Park makes for a unique experience. Sure, you’ll get some extra distance on your driver, but there’s also breathtaking backdrops to admire your extra ball-flight. There are two courses in Estes Park, both open to the public and operated by the town of Estes Park. One a full 18 and separate 9-hole course nestled lake-side. If traditional golf isn’t your forte, there’s Disc golf or mini golf to get you enjoy the fresh mountain air and beautiful Estes Park views. Check out the Estes Park Golf Courses App for GPS Tracking and digital score keeping on the course, plus a free medium bucket of range balls to get your shot dialed in.
Designed in 1917 by Dick Phelps and Henry Hughes, the Estes Park 18-Hole Golf Course is a par 71 regulation,6,321-yard course that sits in a natural valley surrounded by spectacular mountains.
