Service goes above par at Eagle Ranch
Service is top-notch at this downvalley public course that feels more like a high-end private course. Exquisite conditioning, service and course design make Eagle Ranch Golf Club a true locals’ favorite in Eagle County.
Balls are included with the green fee at the driving range, where an attendant will hand golfers balls upon arrival as well as ensure you make it to the first tee on time. And you’ll never have to fumble around with your clubs at the car, either — attendants help you get them out on your way in and they’re there to take them back for you after you play.
“We have such a high level of service that makes people feel like they’re playing at a more exclusive place,” said Jeff Boyer, PGA General Manager at Eagle Ranch. Thanks to the climate downvalley, the course is open about eight months per year, a long season for Eagle County, Boyer points out.
Season pass variety suits various demographics and golfers, while a junior golf program focuses on getting younger folks into the sport. “It’s a great place for families to play and learn and we definitely do our best to make room for young golfers and novice golfers,” Boyer said.
“No. 12 is one of our most challenging and I think it is the prettiest hole. It is also unique in that it has an alternate green. When the course was originally built, we found that the original 12th green was too difficult for golfers. Instead of rebuilding the green, we built another green in a different location. Most golfers play the newer green, but the original green is an option for those looking for a challenge.”
