Beaver Creek Golf Club, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., is one of the longest established golf experiences in the Vail Valley and is famously known for its narrow and challenging fairways, as well as direct views of Beaver Creek Resort and a grand opportunity to view Rocky Mountain wildlife while on course. The course ranks among Golf Digest magazine’s “Top 75 Golf Resorts in North America.”
