For the avid golfer, summer in the mountains truly starts when the old clubs can be dusted off and put back to good use at Copper Creek. The snow has melted, the grass is green and Copper Creek Golf Club is scheduled to open June 2.


Golf at Copper Mountain can change a golfer's idea of what a course should look like and how it should play. Copper Creek is a challenging course known for its tight fairways that wind through towering pines, Copper's cozy East Village, beautiful high valley wetlands and along the scenic West Ten Mile Creek. With incredible views of the Gore and Ten Mile Mountain Ranges, the Pete and Perry Dye designed, 6,057 yard, par-70 course accommodates novice golfers from forward tees while providing a greater challenge for the accomplished golfer from back tees.


Copper welcomes area golfers by extending the local's rate to residents throughout Summit County. County residents can take an extra $10 off any regular priced rate all season while Frisco and Copper Mountain residents can take $15 off. Early Season*, Après rate** for 18 holes is $39, $29 for county residents and $24 for Frisco/Copper residents. Tee times can be reserved by calling (970) 968-3333. Detailed course information, pricing and Base Camp lodging deals can be found at
