Through the windows of Monument Hill Country Club's rustic, hilltop lodge, guests can drink in views of both the snow-capped splendor of the Rocky Mountains and the meandering fairways of the Club's 18-hole golf course. Designed by course architect J. Press Maxwell, the championship layout features long, narrow fairways that tunnel through dense groves of ponderosa pines, which place the ability to hit straight drives and see through wood at a premium. Four ponds further complicate clubbers' passage, with water in play on six holes and five daunting forced carries. A driving range and practice sand bunker help players warm up their swings and castle-building skills before rounds.
With four indoor courts and a full schedule of adult and junior tennis programs, the Monument Hill Tennis Center keeps fuzzy, racquet-propelled orbs flying through the air. The Club also encompasses a two-story fitness center, heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and diverse dining options that accommodate anything from a casual post-round bite to a stately banquet to toast the tragic passing of a cherished sand wedge.
