Telski: Mountain Golf, The Only Way To Play

Telluride Ski Resort Offers Amazing Early Season Golf Package

Surrounded by massive peaks reaching high into the beautiful Colorado blue sky, clean and cool mountain air, and lush, green forest, there is no better place to get away and play a round of golf than at Telluride Golf Course.

After a great season of snowfall and the periodic blankets of spring snow on the course, the golf season in Telluride is going to begin with beautiful fairways and pristine greens. 2014 is going to be a stellar.

“The additional snow this spring has kept the course well hydrated and protected it from spring winds,” according to Telluride Golf Course superintendent, Kevin Cahalane. “ The fairways and greens are in excellent shape and ready for play when the course opens at the end of May.”

Focusing on the ball and not the towering peaks surrounding the Telluride Golf Course may just be the toughest challenge when teeing off at this breathtaking course, perched 9,500 feet above sea level. This par 70, 6,546-yard, 18-hole, mountain resort course is surrounded by the highest concentration of 13 & 14,000-foot peaks in the United States. While the beauty may be a distraction, the high altitude is an advantage as the thin air creates less resistance against the golf ball during its flight, translating to 15 percent more distance.

Telski‘s golf season this year begins Friday, May 23 through the summer, closing after October 5. This provides plenty of time to escape the heat, visit an incredible destination, and get in a few rounds of golf. Or, find the festival of your choice this summer and come for a visit, putting aside some time for the links. Telluride is considered the Festival Capital of Colorado and there is something here for everyone, so there’s no reason to miss an opportunity to experience this course.

The Telluride Golf Course will be starting the golf season off with a great opportunity to get out early by introducing the Fore! Pack. The Fore! Pack is a package that includes four rounds of golf, including cart and lunch (Angus Beef burger and beer or soda at the Halfway House). Tee-times are available daily after 12 p.m. from May 23 – June 15.

With everything included at $259, it’s the best price to tee-off the season. And, Fore! Packs are fully-transferable. Bring three friends or golf individually. How you use your rounds is up to you.

There is one catch, only 100 Fore! Packs are available for sale. So don’t hesitate, they’ll be gone fast.
