The Aspen Golf Club’s long 400 and 500-yard fairways may be featureless and relatively Spartan, but the club gets nods for convenience to the downtown Aspen and public accessibility. Owned and operated by The City of Aspen’s Parks and Recreation Department, the Aspen Golf Club is an 18-hole course with sweeping views of the Roaring Fork Valley, Buttermilk, Mount Hayden, the Hunter Creek Valley, and Pyramid Peak. Greens fees at the Aspen Golf Club are relatively affordable. Playing this course is a great introduction to refining your technique in the high country before tackling more challenging courses like the Snowmass Club or the Roaring Fork Club.
