Estes Park 18 Hole Golf Course



Calling "Fore!" to the Elk

Golf finds a natural home in the sweeping green valleys of Estes Park. The lay of the land beautifully accommodates two courses, one 9-hole and one 18, that challenge and inspire golfers. (And let's not forget the three family-friendly putt-putt parks!) The scenic views alone make a round worth it, and at the affordable prices, you'll likely go for more! The nine-hole course, which hugs the Big Thompson River, features five par-3s and four par-4s, and often dozens of elk. Weather permitting, it's open year-round. The 18-hole course runs 6,400 yards from the men's blue tees for a par 71, meandering beneath the snow-capped peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park.
