Keeping your eye on the ball and off the towering peaks surrounding the Telluride Golf Course may be your toughest challenge when teeing off at this breathtaking course. This par 70, 6,574 yard, 18 hole, mountain resort course is surrounded by the highest concentration of 14,000 foot mountains in the United States.
Perched 9,300 feet above sea level, the elevation works to your advantage as Telluride’s thin air creates less resistance against the golf ball during flight, translating to 15 percent more distance. The course offers meandering fairways that wind through aspen groves and towering pines and beside mountain ponds and sparkling streams.
The Telluride Golf Course was constructed in 1992 and serves as a private club for members, as well as a public course for locals and guests.
