Some courses in the area are relatively level in the base of the valley. Some are mountain goat courses hanging on the side of the mountains. Singletree is a wonderful mix of both.

We really liked this course. It wasn't too difficult but was challenging enough with interesting holes and features. It was in great shape and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I will definitely be going back.

I visited during the summer and it felt a little deserted. The city of Vail had plenty of friendly people, great food and a luxurious resort (the Sonnenalp) but this Club felt forgotten.

Beautiful course with challenging holes. Very well kept and fast but true greens. Once we adjusted to the speed, we were rolling them tight. Customer service was excellent as well, as guests, we were treated very well.

Played on late July for the first time. Had played Eagle Vail a couple of days before, and preferred Sonnenalp. Course was in excellent shape, and had a good combination of "valley" holes and holes with elevation changes. Greens were pretty consistent. Would play again.

Interesting golf course that was in decent shape (not nearly as good as either the CC of the Rockies or the Cordillera courses). Many nice vistas. Good driving range. However, the greens fees are outrageous ($160), and the course isn't worth it.

I would not call this a course that is the top shape...the greens are excellent...fairways good. Like most Vail vicinity courses, it is pricey for what it is...the restaurant is okay...drinks are cheap during happy hour. Just don't get you ball above the hole...for a...More

We have always golfed at Sonnenalp but then the prices went sky high so we golfed elsewhere but this visit we did the twilight golf and it was perfect. Course is in great shape and nice dinner after in their club house

We stopped at Sonnenalp for their Breakfast Brunch. The food was excellent, coffee was great, and the service was very good. We spent the day walking around the shops in the town, but since it was off season, there wasn't very much to see in...More

Obviously the setting is beautiful and the course was well-maintained. There are lots of opportunities to lose balls but it is all worth it having a drink after the round in the lovely clubhouse. There is also a well-stocked Pro Shop.
