“Great 9 Hole Course in Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We played the 9 hole Mt. Massive Golf Course today on our way through Leadville. What a treat!
The fairways and greens were in excellent condition.
We're trying to play golf in all 50 states (only 11 to go) and thought it would be neat to play the highest golf course in the Americas (maybe the galaxy?).
The views of Mt. Massive and the surrounding area were impressive.
The course has 2 par 5s, 2 par 3s and 5 par 4s. The staff was very nice and we were lucky enough to play with a local guy (John) who had worked at the nearby Climax mine and was fun to talk to.
Give it a shot you'll enjoy it.

“Great golf experience”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Playing the highest golf course in the US is a gem in itself but this course is in great shape and the layout is fun and challenging. Highly recommended

Thanks for the kind words! Glad you guys were able to get out - we've had a rainy mid-summer, but it finally looks to be drying out and the course simply could not be in better shape.

“If you are a glofer, come play at the highest course in the USA!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

I love to play here! Mount Massive in the background, balls flying 2 clubs farther, blind shots and very hospitable hosts!
If you are playing up on 70, come down here for some real fun in the sun! Highest golf coarse in the USA!
Crazy driving range, you cross the road and hit out over a field covered in sage! how do they ever get their range balls back.
9 hole coarse made interesting with a few blind shots and muffin top greens!
Stay on the path, do not destroy the fragile eco system!
Great dogs as well. (hotdogs..:))

Beers are speedy, but you can say that about any course. Most affordable course in the high rockies.

“Don't know about golf...but the cross-country skiing is excellent!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Title says it all. As I don't golf I can't rate it as a golf course...but as a place to cross-country ski...this place ROCKS!!! Now if you're looking for an always-groomed setting...this ain't it...but generally there is a path to follow. They do groom it on occasion...I just don't know the schedule (hint...publish it on your website, please). If you prefer solitude and don't mind sometimes setting your own tracks...this is the place. Not for the timid as the weather can get brutal here in the winter...but if you're somewhat hardy and love to cross-country ski it's worth checking out Mt. Massive. It is well worth the $2 they ask for covering the grooming and winter maintenance. I'll gladly pay this every time. When they're open you can rent gear or even take a lesson...or call ahead to pre-arrange.
