The staff is very good, especially Kyle. However No consideration is given to either locals(Carbondale residents) or seniors concerning Green Fees. This is a blue collar town, NOT ASPEN!

From driving up to the club house you will experience the quality of the staff which is first class and real. The course is in great shape for a public course.

This golf course is exceptionally pretty. It has an amazing view of Mt. Sopris. Very well groomed. The only drawback is the golf pro is not very friendly! You won't be disappointed in this course.
