(TELLURIDE, Colo.) – Telluride Ski and Golf Club in the heart of Mountain Village has unveiled tellurideskiandgolfclub.com, offering an enhanced user experience for visitors, and premium access and benefits for members.
Responsive across desktop, tablet and mobile platforms, the new website combines Telluride’s powerful brand colors, fonts and signatures with expanded content and features. The website is the property’s first dedicated, online home for Telluride’s two iconic lifestyle sports.
“Our goal was to assemble all the aspects of the ski and golf club into an intuitive and accessible website,” says Robert Stenhammer, Vice President of Hospitality at Telluride Ski & Golf Resort. “We want the new site to be an essential and valuable resource for both members and guests that are interested in club membership and the incredible lifestyle Telluride offers.”
Dubbed the “most beautiful place you will ever tee,” Telluride Golf Club is a breathtaking par-70 layout encircled by snow-capped peaks, towering pines and aspen groves perched nearly 10,000 feet above sea level. The hallmarks of pure alpine golf – drastic elevation changes, inspiring views and challenging shot selections – are on full display for 18 unforgettable holes.

About Telluride Golf Club
Telluride Golf Club opens with a 377-yard, downhill par-4 that is temptingly drivable at altitude. Scoring opportunities abound as back-to-back par 3s follow, including the sporty 233-yard third hole (No. 4 handicap). As the front nine progresses, famed Wilson Peak dominates the backdrop as golfers negotiate consecutive par 5s culminating with the 635-yard eighth hole.
The back nine ascends even deeper into the 14,000-plus peaks of the San Sophia Range. Uphill holes, stout carries and beguiling doglegs add ample teeth to a strategic design that doesn’t rely on length as its only defense against par.
The closing holes present a compelling contrast in brawn and beauty. The rapidly rising 486-yard par-4 15th – the course’s most difficult hole – plays like par-5. Conversely, players who climb the 92 steps to reach the tee box on the par-3 17th are rewarded with a 100-foot drop over 137 yards to a pine-encircled green below.
Telluride Golf Club is an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, one of the first courses bestowed the prestigious certification in 2004. It meets strict criteria for water and biodiversity conservation, habitat protection, water quality management and reduced chemical use.
The club expanded its game-improvement platform a year ago, naming Dale Abraham Director of Golf and Instruction. The 2013 Southwest Section PGA Teacher of the Year, Abraham manages the club’s overall operations, private lessons, junior and golf fitness programs. The season ahead includes a major expansion of the practice facility and enhancements to some holes and club amenities.
In addition to limited daily-fee and resort play, platinum and silver memberships encompass golf, skiing, snowboarding, spa, fitness, dining and other amenities and exclusivities. Destination golfers can choose from a variety of first-class accommodations, including the critically acclaimed Inn at Lost Creek. Getting to Telluride has never been easier with direct flights from nine major U.S. hubs to Montrose-Telluride Regional Airport (MTJ).
