The nearby Grand Lake Golf Course is surrounded by Arapaho National Forest land and sits at an altitude of 8,420 feet. The Never Summer Range provides the backdrop for this scenic 18 hole championship golf course. To make your mountain golfing holiday go smoothly, overnight guests of the Lodge can make advance reservations for the Grand Lake Golf Course through our reservation staff (more than their standard 48 hours prior to play). About 30 minutes down the road from Grand Lake, is the award winning Pole Creek Golf Course. In 1984 Golf Digest named it the "Best New Public Course of the Year." Since then the magazine has twice named it the "Best Public Golf Course in Colorado."
