Redlands Mesa was designed by award-winning golf course architect Jim Engh, whose layouts include The Sanctuary in Sedalia, CO, and Hawktree Golf Club in Bismarck, ND. Engh took full advantage of the desert landscape by creating a course that incorporates many elevation changes. Nine of the holes play downhill from elevated tees. Wherever possible, native terrain and plants were left untouched. Many areas of the course incorporate large rock outcroppings and many marvelous views of the Grand Mesa, the Bookcliffs and most notably the Colorado National Monument.

The par-72 Redlands Mesa plays a distance ranging from 7,007 yards to 4,916 yards depending on which of the tees are used. From the championship tees, the course has a U.S.G.A. rating of 72.1 and a slope rating of 137.

Fees & Tee Times

Front Nine

HOLE 1

This opening hole requires a well hit tee shot that needs to avoid the fairway bunker on the right side of the fairway. There is more green to the left than appears from the fairway.

Hole: 1

Tees Yardage Par H/C
Monument 419 4 3
Redlands 387 4 3
Canyon 335 4 3
Desert 294 4 5

 

HOLE 2

A breathtaking tee shot looking towards Mount Garfield and the Grand Mesa. Slightly longer than the opening hole this tee shot plays downhill. Avoid missing tee shot to the left, for the lake comes in to play as you round the corner.

Hole: 2

Tees Yardage Par H/C
Monument 429 4 9
Redlands 400 4 9
Canyon 365 4 9
Desert 310 4 7

 

An accurate tee shot is necessary due to the inability to see the entire green. Trust your yardage, it’s a big green with bunkers short right and behind the green.

Hole: 3

Monument 197 3 17
Redlands 170 3 17

This straight away Par 4 may become known as the “Cliff Hole”. The entire right side drops off with a perfect view of the entrance to the Colorado National Monument. Be careful not to be long or right on your approach.

Hole: 4

Monument 373 4 15
Redlands 320 4 15
Canyon 282 4 15

A partially blind tee shot from the back tee. Play this tee shot directly at the fairway bunker. A mid to long iron second shot will leave you a short iron over a native area to a small green. Club selection is important because of the two-tier green.

Hole: 5

Tees Yardage Par H/C
Monument 575 5 5
Redlands 538 5 5

Redlands 376 4 7

A breathtaking downhill Par 3 that plays over a large lake. Club selection is the key to avoid the water and bunker short of the green and the large boulders, which are just past the green. The expansive but shallow green will test your putting nerves.

Hole: 8

A solid tee shot is critical to carry a large ravine and avoid the OB along the right side. Take plenty of club to avoid bunkers right and left of the green. The green narrows significantly at the back to allow for some difficult pin placements.

Back Nine

A superb hole that awards good shots. The downhill tee shot can play quite differently depending on the wind. Avoid the natural wash to the left and the bunker selectively placed on the right portion of the fairway. The green is deeper than it appears, so take plenty of club.
