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.
