Nine holes in a classic Western setting
With beautiful views of the White River and the Chinese Wall of the Flat Tops Mountains, the nine holes at Meeker Golf Course deliver the views.
Meeker’s Western heritage is evident by the cattle all around the perimeter of the course thanks to its location right in the middle of three ranches. Wildlife are also common sights, including turkeys, deer and elk.
“This course was designed by ranchers who wanted to play golf,” said Kyle Hooks, president of the board for the Meeker Golf Course. “They made a course that follows the topography of the land.”
A creek runs through the middle of the course into the White River, a world-renowned trout fishing river.
With two sets of tee boxes and plenty of elevation changes, Meeker Golf Course is a challenging but welcoming ninehole.
“The opening hole is the signature hole because of the unique elevation change from tee to fairway, and because of the risk/reward challenge due to it being a drivable Par 4, but there is a small pond in front of the green,” Hooks said. “Also, the hole looks down into the White River valley with river meandering below.”
