Robert Trent Jones, Sr.
After the carefully designed Beaver Creek ski resort opened in December of 1980, renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. set eyes to create the famously narrow and challenging fairways of Beaver Creek Golf Club nestled in the canyon leading up to the resort. The club opened in 1982 and is artfully complemented by its impeccably-maintained greens, awe-inspiring alpine backdrop and diverse array of Rocky Mountain wildlife. Here, guests can allow the crisp mountain air to permeate their senses, promoting a sense of calm as they reach the apex of their backstroke, connect, and drive straight down the luscious green fairway. They say the higher elevation allows for a smoother carry and it doesn’t hurt that you may see an eagle while trying to score one.
