A Dave Pelz Signature Design, the Short Course is one of two in the world. Each hole is less than 200 yards, but features challenging shots and tight bunkering. The 10-hole Short Course lies high on the mountain, providing fabulous views of the Vail Valley. It's sophisticated enough for serious players who wish to develop a stronger short game, while providing a fun, relaxed golf experience for every ability level.
Club at Cordillera
Cordillera features three championship golf courses, designed by the greatest names in golf - Jack Nicklaus, Hale Irwin and Tom Fazio. Challenging courses, breathtaking scenery and topnotch facilities make Cordillera one of the world's premier golf destinations. The Club at Cordillera's three courses are private.
The Mountain Course
7,413 yards, par 72
Elevation: 8,250 feet Open June - September
Inspired by the undulating terrain and postcard setting, the Mountain Course is a Hale Irwin signature design. Capturing the feel of the landscape was important to Irwin, a three-time U.S. Open Champion. Formerly a working ranch, the land spans ridges, generous meadows and forests, bringing a variety of challenges into play.
This Jack Nicklaus signature design course has been crafted on 190 mountaintop acres and takes advantage of the natural, rolling terrain of the sage and spruce-covered hills. Stunning, hundred-mile views of the Rockies await every player.
The Valley Course
7,005 yards, par 71
Elevation: 7,200 feet Open April - October
The Valley Course is a Tom Fazio signature design with high mountain-desert topography and wide open fairways. Dramatically different than the Mountain and Summit Courses, the Valley Course is lower in elevation by 2,100 feet and blessed with primarily southern exposure, so it benefits from an extended playing season.
