The Golf Club at Redlands Mesa is home to a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best and most dramatic in Colorado. Laid out on undulating arid terrain to the west of Grand Junction, this immensely scenic desert-style layout sits in the shadow of the towering pink and red sandstone face of the Colorado National Monument (a National Park).
Some have described it as playing along the bottom of the Grand Canyon ... perhaps there's some hyperbole in that, but don't underestimate the spectacle and extraordinary scenery of Redlands Mesa. Although this expansive roaming layout brushes alongside some large home sites, any housing cannot detract from the sheer majesty of the rugged desert environment.
Jim Engh's excellent design offers many stunning, dramatic vistas, which can be enjoyed from 11 elevated tees that play down to good width fairways. A few straightaway holes are combined with many interesting doglegging holes. Very occasionally ponds are in play, but more frequently your course management will need to factor in long wriggling fairway bunkers and small greenside pot bunkers.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2020].
Golf carts available to rent.
Redlands Mesa is located just a short distance outside Grand Junction (also known as "River City"), where the Colorado River is joined by the Gunnison River, which comes in from the south. "Grand" refers to the historical Grand River, which was renamed the Upper Colorado River in 1921. "Junction" refers to the confluence of the two rivers.
