According to science, golf balls fly further at elevation. See for yourself on the Telluride Golf Course.
Telluride Golf Course
This par 71, 6,739-yard, 18-hole, mountain resort course is surrounded by the highest concentration of 14,000-foot mountains in the United States. Perched 9,300 feet above sea level, the elevation works to your advantage as Telluride’s thin air creates less resistance against the golf ball during flight, translating to 15 percent more distance. The course offers meandering fairways that wind through aspen groves and towering pines and beside mountain ponds and sparkling streams.
The Telluride Golf Course was constructed in 1992 and serves as a private club for members, as well as a public course for locals and guests. The Pro Shop and Clubhouse are located at The Peaks Resort in Mountain Village.

The Mountain Lion is embodied by the title “Ghost of the Rockies”, for when in their presence they may be felt but are rarely seen or photographed. This magnificent golden cat has mastered the art of concealment by only hunting the remote broken canyons in the blackness of night.
Possessing cryptic senses of hearing and sight in combination with unmatched strength and speed makes the puma one of the least photographed of North Americas wild animals. But as winter snows blanket the favorite haunts of this American lion, the tracks of this great cat are revealed.
If a glimpse into the fiery-green eyes of one of these golden ghosts calls to you, then come ‘Experience the Edge’!
