The Short Course




Open May 13 – September 30

The Short Course is a private amenity owned by the CPOA open to Cordillera Property Owners and accompanied guests. The operations and maintenance are managed by the Cordillera Property Owners Association.

It is a 9-hole, par 3 course located in the Divide, with fabulous views east to the Vail Valley. A Dave Pelz Signature design, one of two in the world, the course was created to improve your short game. Each hole is less than 200 yards, and features challenging shots and tight bunkering.

There is also a short game practice area to hone pitching, chipping and putting skills. It is sophisticated enough for serious players looking to lower their handicap, while providing a fun, relaxed golf experience for families and golfers of every ability level.
