“Too bad !”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Made a tee time in person when we first arrived in town. The young man at the desk was very pleasant and welcoming. When we were on our way to the course there was an accident on Rte 550, so knowing we would be late we called the course to let them know. The staff was terribly rude on the phone, but thought everybody has a bad day right ? When we arrived at the course we were told we had to be off in 4 minutes or wait an hour,no problem we got off and had a great pace going. Before we know it we are being followed around by the marshal ,making comments about "ready golf" and you have some "first timers " I asked him how where doing on the clock and he said fine but continued to follow us and make comments until I asked if he wanted on the course or not ? Finally I called the Pro shop to get him to leave us alone. We played under 4 hours and had to wait on the last 3 holes. I play twice a week and am a Marshal myself at a local golf course so, I think I know about slow play! This course is nice but not nice enough to put up with the crap. We will not be back !

“Very nice muni”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

We had gotten shutout of the National parks ( Govt shutdown) so had time to kill and had read in Trip Advisor about Hillcrest so we took a chance and rode up the upon arrival in Durango.
We were fortunate that they had a cancellation and could fit us in. The course is very busy with locals. It was cold and blustery but were fortunate to get paired up with a local couple for 9 holes.
The course was well maintained but you had to stay in the fairways or the hardpan would send your ball to parts unknown. The green were quite fast and hard to read if you were on the course for the first time.
That being said the staff was very friendly and we enjoyed our day on Hillcrest and played for 90$ cart included.

“Great Golf”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

This is an excellent municipal golf course. The staff caters to the players. Rates were fair for a scenic top notch course. The pro shop explained the rules and stressed a 4 hour round. Played 3 times in less than 4 hours on a full golf course.

“Best Golf Course Ever”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

My family and I have been playing here for a very long time. Every one that works here makes the place have a great atmosphere and you feel welcome. The pros in the shop will help solve your problems and answer your questions up at the golf course. Also the prices are very reasonable and the membership prices are a bargain. Over all the everything here is great.
