Pros Picks: Greg Gortsema

It is a shorter golf course by length, but what we lack in length we make up for. The difficulty comes from fairways half as wide as they seem ” undulating, slanting fairways. The greens are small, undulating and quick, and can be very tricky with certain hole locations.

I enjoy all the holes. It’s a good test of nine holes. My favorite feature is just greens ” knowing where you have to hit it not only on the green, but off the tee to put yourself in position to get on the green.

What really distinguishes us is that it’s a mature golf course. The thing’s been here since ’52. The trees have grown to give you the challenge and narrowness on the fairways. It’s always in excellent condition just because of the maturity of the course. And, of course, the affordability in comparison to other golf course in the (Roaring Fork) Valley.” ($19 walking nine holes, $32 for 18).

We haven’t had too many aces this year; didn’t have too many last year. The one we had this year, it was kind of neat. The one hole-in-one was by Steve Lundin and it was his first one ever. He’d been playing golf for a lot of years and finally got it on No. 8. And he was playing with son, Eric, which was kinda neat too.
