“Big greens”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

Not as easy as the Fazio course, but better views & faster greens.
Double check pin placement as these greens can be 3-4 clubs difference front to back due to size.
This is a great course, I have played this gem many times now.

“The Top Notch...”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

The Red Sky Golf Club in Walcott, Colorado, is by no exagerration amongst the finest courses in all the land. While I have not visited some of greats, I can only compare the course to the likes of Colonial in Ft. Worth and the Barton Creek courses in Austin, Texas. However, I would place a wager that the Norman and Fazio at Red Sky holds its own against any of the challengers.

The courses themselves are challenging. While the Norman touts lengthy tee box to fairway distances and double-cut greens the size of UT - Austin tailgates, the Fazio course is a narrow marksman's game with aspen groves and thick grass pressuring players to keep it straight.

Another aspect of Red Sky that makes it stand on its own are the facilities. Ice cold bottles of water are located at every 3rd or 4th hole, the bathrooms throughout the course are as nice as the Ritz Carlton's (from experience) and the club house is as spacious as they come.

The staff are fantastic, from valet to range staff, from pro shop to restaurant/bar staff.

Like the title of my review says, Top Notch.

Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

Fantastic layout, great views, very playable for all skill levels. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The course was is great shape, well kept. It did rain on us like it all ways does in vail around 3:00 but it rolled thru after 30 minutes. All in all a great time highly suggest.

“BIG views with top GOLF quality!”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

You must be on top of your game for this Top of the World views. Couldn't get better mountain sites with outstanding golf course from tee to greens! Once you finish the course, grab some grub and some colds one at a wonderful clubhouse and bar!

“Amazing golf and mountain views”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Red Sky has two excellent golf courses, Norman and Fazio. Both courses are in excellent shape with lush fairways and beautiful, large bent grass greens. I thought the Fazio course was a little tougher but both are very comparable. The views of the mountains and great course make for a perfect golf experience. As another reviewer said, ball always breaks toward the valley. We played several other courses in the area but these two were the best hands down. If you want to play both courses you need to play back to back days or skip a day. They offered a deal if you buy both courses up front. (a very good deal)
