Devils Thumb Golf Club Colorado

This Delta golf course will awaken your senses, guaranteed. A dramatic rock formation standing sentinel over this prairie-style course is responsible for the name Devils Thumb Golf Club. The San Juan Mountains, where skiers take to the slopes at Telluride, lie about forty miles to the south. The West Elk Mountains lie to the east. Architect Rick Phelps showed mercy on the average golfer when he created five sets of tees on this masterpiece just opened in 2001. Accolades immediately began to appear that very year when Golf Digest named it the number two most affordable public golf course in the nation. Devils Thumb has been repeatedly praised as one of the best golf courses in Colorado. From the most distant tees, this par 72 layout stretches to 7,176 yards. From there, the Devils Thumb Golf Course rates a 134 slope and a course rating of 72.9.

Right in the middle of your round, water will appear, and in volume. Both nine and ten are bedeviled by expansive water hazards. The ninth is a hefty 436 yard, par four with lots of water. From the tips, number 10 measures a daunting 468 yards. This par four doglegs right around the water. It's a simple equation here -- go right, you're wet. This is the land where "the deer and the antelope" play; well, at least the antelope. No, it won't be a mirage if you see an antelope sauntering across the fairway in front of you. This is a land of contrasts and drama, and the golfers at Devils Thumb get to take it all in. Full-service facilities include range, practice green, pro shop, restaurant and bar. Tee times in Delta for Devils Thumb are the ticket to a most memorable experience along the western slope of the Colorado Rockies.
