Hillcrest golf course sits atop a scenic mesa just north of Fort Lewis College. There are great views of the surrounding town of Durango, Colorado as well as views of the LaPlata Mountains and the Animas River Valley. This is an 18 hole municipal course that provides four sets of tees that plays from 5200 yards (white) to 6800 yards... More

We did 9 holes. Well kept and staff were helpful all the way when needed. Anyone traveling with their clubs like we don't? Don't miss this course on a Mesa above beautiful downtown Durango!

I have not played the course, but a friend of mine who has played the course says it is just fine for a casual round. The price is great at $35+cart fee. As compared to Dalton which is $120 per round. Nice course, but go to a TPC course for $75 and enjoy yourself.

The first 9 holes are under major construction so it's muddy and in disarray - hard to tell where the tees boxes are. The second 9 holes is a beautiful place to play. The staff aren't overly friendly but not rude either. Strange that the cart paths aren't complete - they begin, then you drive onto the fairway then towards... More

This is not your typical public course. It was perfectly groomed, great layout, many elevation changes and variety between holes. I think the greens were running 12-14 - really fast. Of course, being that hard mid irons or better won't hold very well and don't forget at elevation you probably need less club than the distance. I found that out... More

Not sure why the repeated poor comments about the staff. They were extremely accommodating to me, especially since I wasn't prepared to play & had to gear up quickly before our round. One of the guys even loaned me his golf shoes. As for the course, if you like picturesque backgrounds, well managed greens & gorgeous deer frolicking through your... More

Very nice restaurant, an outdoor patio with beautiful views of the club and the surrounding mountains and valley...Good lunches and dinners. For golfers or non-golfers, open to the public..

Called out there 3 times. Found staff to be awful. Always doing you a favor. Called for tee time today and was made to feel like a second class citizen as non member and felt like was bothering him... Insinuating I should book online. Course and facilities sub par.

I spend my summers in Colorado to escape the Texas heat, and stay very close to this course. Usually play five or six rounds a summer. The fairways and greens are always in fantastic shape for a course that gets as much play as it does. Must have something to do with the soil and weather. Can't say much for... More

We arrived on Monday to a full parking lot and kids everywhere. When the guy working the pro shop counter finally got off the phone and acknowledged us, he just starred at us until I finally asked if they had any openings. He was very rude in explaining that some high school competition was going on, and told us to... More
