Golf & Tennis

Description


The Aspen Golf & Tennis Club provides a challenging 18-hole course set in the heart of the Rockies...just minutes from downtown Aspen. This 7,156-yard championship course is complete with a PGA award-winning golf shop, lessons, driving range, chipping and putting greens, cart rental and full-service locker facilities. Instruction is available by PGA staff.  Don't forget to stop by the fabulous Red Mountain Grill for a tantalizing array of fine foods and beverages. 

The Aspen Golf Club is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and has been since January 2000. At that time we were one of only two hundred in the world and the fifth in Colorado to achieve this recognition. There are over 1,000 courses worldwide with this certification. This program is designed to recognize Golf courses that maintain and demonstrate a high degree of environmental quality. To achieve certification a Golf Course must certify in six categories: Environmental Planning, Wildlife and Habitat Management, Outreach and Education, Integrated Pest Management, and Water Quality and Water Conservation.

The City of Aspen and the Aspen Golf Course are very proud of this certification and are pleased to be leaders in the community by being environmental stewards.
