EagleVail Golf Club, rated 3-1/2 stars, home to a locally well-regarded parkland/mountain style layout, is located just outside the town of Avon in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. Stone Creek meanders through the course, coming into play on several occasions. Many holes are quite closely flanked by residential areas as the layout proceeds out-and-back from the clubhouse. Along the way you'll enjoy expansive views of the Gore Range and surrounding Rocky Mountain peaks.

The course is fine: not as plush as Vail or BC, not as long as Eagle Ranch, not as short as Gypsum Creek. And except for BC, the cost to play is comparable. We've played this course for years, but something is amiss this year (2017).
Aside from the starters, club staff seems to suffer from a culture of indifference. For the second time this month, we went to hit balls, arriving before the range closed. The ball machine was padlocked and the "dude" was sweeping up the balls on the range. According to the website, everything still was open.
Four of us were standing around, puzzled at the early closing. We called the clubhouse and explained the situation. They said that they "couldn't do anything about it"—despite the fact that they were still selling fobs to get balls from the machine. Also, we left our name and phone number at the club house three times this summer to set up lessons. No one ever called to arrange the lessons so we're taking them weekly at the Vail Golf Club.
It's hard to be enthusiastic about a playing a course where the staff and pros care so little about customer service and honoring business hours. There are too many other good options in this valley.
