Experience one of America’s top mountain golf destinations
Nestled in the heart of the Colorado Rockies a mere 20-minute drive from the Eagle Vail Airport, the Red Sky Golf Club features two professionally designed courses that are consistently ranked by Golfweek and Golf Digest as some of the best golf resorts you can play in Colorado.
The Tom Fazio course: stunning to look at and play.
This Red Sky course is currently ranked the #1 golf course in Colorado by Golfweek Raters and for good reason. Tom Fazio’s sensational design measures 7,113 yards (Par 72) and tees up postcard-perfect views of Vail’s back bowls along with a variety of terrain capable of gratifying players of all skill levels. Players weave their way past open sage-covered hills, through dense aspen groves and even around a pristine highland lake.
When creating this celebrated course, Fazio’s design team took particular care to maintain the site’s indigenous vegetation. All told, more than 23,000 native plants were temporarily moved into nearby nurseries before being carefully replanted throughout the grounds.
The end result is nothing short of spectacular.
“Red Sky Golf Club not only provides the opportunity to play great golf, but also to encounter dramatic Rocky Mountain landscapes in their pure environmental forms.” Tom Fazio
The Greg Norman course: astonishing in its own right.
Like his golfing career, Greg Norman’s reputation as a course designer is characterized by an unbridled zeal for achievement. At Red Sky Golf Club, Norman skillfully allows the treasures of the natural landscape to dictate the flow of play. Craggy rock outcroppings, twisted knots of scrub oak, rugged gulches, and wildflower meadows all contribute to an unparalleled wilderness golf experience.
At a full 7,580 yards from the tips, this Par 72 course is slightly longer than its brethren tract, which is why most players will appreciate the additional carry that comes with the high altitude here.
Should you happen to hit your round at just the tight time of day, you will be treated to one of Vail Valley’s finest sunsets silhouetted against the majesty of Castle Peak.
“For years, my love of the Rockies, along with the natural beauty of the surrounds, has beckoned me to the Vail Valley. Red Sky Golf Club affords me the chance to create one of the most natural and aesthetically beautiful golf courses in this region.” Greg Norman
