About Redlands Mesa Golf Course
Perhaps Golf Digest sums up the course best, “Positioned beneath the slopes of jagged buttes south of Grand Junction, Colorado, in the shadow of the towering pink and red sandstone face of the Colorado National Monument, Redlands Mesa is like playing golf along the bottom of the Grand Canyon, with a couple of sojourns to the Garden of the Gods thrown in.”
The Golf Club at Redlands Mesa is a spectacular course that occasionally overwhelms the senses in its grandeur. Over one-third of our 500 acres is part of our sprawling, world-class golf course. You’ll discover stunning, dramatic vistas throughout, as well as 11 elevated tees and 37 bunkers. Our unique hole shaping ensures challenges for all skill levels on this championship-grade course.
