New Improved EagleVail Golf Club Passes on Sale Now
The valley’s second oldest course will play like new this year! Golfers will discover a highly improved course when they venture out to the tees at EagleVail Golf Club this season.
The first thing they will notice is that the new cart they are riding in is equipped with GPS. This state-of-the-art system works like a personal caddy, giving players information such as distances, obstacles, range, and more for every hole. Next, golfers will notice the pace of play being smoother and faster. Golfers will also note that EagleVail remains the perfect combination of gentle river course and challenging mountain course, providing players of all abilities an exhilarating golf experience and making EagleVail Golf Club the logical golf choice for beauty, value and convenience in the Vail Valley.
“I’m really excited about the new and improved golf experience we are offering,” said Ben Welsh, EagleVail’s golf professional since 2005. “We have removed more than a dozen bunkers, re-aligned three holes, paved the cart paths and have a whole new fleet of carts equipped with a state of the art GPS system. It’s a great year to re-experience EagleVail!”
Pinnacle Passes, the only season pass offered at EagleVail, are now on sale for $1099 through the end of April, when the price will be $1199 until pass sales end May 15. Opening day is scheduled for April 28, weather permitting and extends into October to greet the first flakes of snow. Pinnacle Passes can be purchased on line only at www.eaglevailgolfclub.com. The pass includes unlimited golf with cart & unlimited play at Willow Creek Par 3. Some time restrictions apply to this limited time offer.
Remodeling the EagleVail course has taken two years with work being done in the shoulder and off-seasons for minimal disruption of course play. Hole #3 was removed which realigns play along the Eagle River to increase pace of play. The new Hole #5 was lengthened to a 398 yard, Par 4. The shared green was replaced with fairway and a new green created to the east. Play along this Par 4 still goes across and alongside the Eagle River. A new Par 3 hole was created which will now be the new Hole #8. The 16th green was rebuilt also, nearly doubling the size of the putting surface and approach area. Remodeled tee boxes and bunkers on the rest of the course add to the overall result of a much more fluid round of golf, without losing any of the scenic beauty or natural challenge of this mountain course.
