The Telluride Golf Club is known as the “most beautiful place you will ever tee”. Sitting at 9,500 feet above sea level, the course is surrounded by 13,000 and 14,000-foot peaks and winds through aspen and pine forests with majestic views of Mt. Wilson and the San Sophia Mountain Range. While playing golf in Telluride you will also see some of the most desirable Mountain Village homes and home sites in the Telluride area. Golf Course properties remain one of the best values in today’s real estate market.
And now, the addition of a world-class golf practice facility has rounded out this incredible summer outdoor experience. Telluride Ski & Golf Resort has invested over a million dollars in a new practice facility which will allow for destination golf lesson camps, equipment demo days, tournament staging and golf instruction on all aspects of the game. In fact, Telluride Director of Golf and Instruction Dale Abraham (PGA) is one of Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Teachers in America!
Renowned golf course architect Ken Kavanaugh was brought in to design and oversee the construction of the new facility which began in the Spring of 2016. The members and guests of Telluride Golf Club are raving about the quality of the project which officially opened on August 5, 2017.
Here are some highlights of the new practice facility:
- Almost 50,000 square feet of tee space on the driving range on 3 levels
- A 420-yard-long driving range
- A 5,000-square foot practice putting green
- A 2,500-squre foot short game practice green with a chipping/pitching area and practice bunker
- 6 driving range target greens
- Parking for up to 50 golf carts
The new facility required over 25,000 cubic yards of earth to be moved and is complete with drainage and irrigation. The grasses were topped off with seed, sod and hydro mulch.
Telluride Golf Club is a can’t miss Telluride experience and is perfect for groups, wedding parties, buddie’s trips and ladies golf.
The new golf course practice facility is an exciting addition and the Resort has much more planned in its’ five-year Resort Master Plan which is now in the final approval process with the US Forest Service. Look for more exciting updates to come on lift upgrades, summer activities and more in the near future.
