Nested in a truly spectacular setting near the headwaters of the Arkansas River. Surrounded by the towering, snow-capped Sawatch and Mosquito mountain ranges, over two dozen 14,000 foot+ peaks are visible from the course, including Mt Elbert and Mt Massive, the highest and second highest in the entire Rocky Mountains.
The course blends links-style open meadows with tree-lined holes. 13 strategically placed bunkers dot the layout, and though water comes into play on several holes, there are no forced carries. Although priced well below the nearby resort courses, our facility is professionally operated and maintained. Our dedicated staff takes pride in providing excellent course conditioning and genuinely friendly customer service.
Our putting greens consistently garner high marks and praise from guests that compare them to more costly venues. With no homes, freeways, condos or development within several miles, golf at Mt. Massive is truly a walk in the woods. Carts are definitely not required - we encourage walking the course. Walking or riding, our aim at Mt. Massive is to send our guests home to tell their friends, “Put America’s Highest on your golf course bucket list. Totally awesome place, and the golf is pretty good too!” Just up the road, Turquoise Lake sparkles in the thin air. 3 miles east, beautiful downtown Leadville offers Victorian architecture, museums, shopping, dining and lodging in one of the largest National Historic Districts in the west.
