    A real Diamond in the rough! Surrounded by spectacular views at the base of the Grand Mesa! The course is kept up by a great turf and pro shop staff. Greens can be challenging, and exciting at the same time! The wonders of the wildlife at the course are awesome, antelope, badgers, eagles, and you can get close enough to get some amazing photos. Rates and discount days are hard to beat, compared to other western slope courses; Mondays & Fridays Senior rates 55 yrs. & over $30 for 18 w/cart, Wednesdays 4-somes or veterans just $25 for 18 w/cart, active duty service men and women only pay a cart fee any time! Thursdays is Ladies' day for $30 for 18 w/ cart, and Family Fridays after 3pm is just $25 per couples for 9 holes w/cart , and $35 for Family of 4 for 9 holes w/cart! Smoking Deals thanks to the new Golf Pro -
    Ken Brown!

    I have played Devil's Thumb numerous times and have enjoyed every round. Tee shots are difficult on a number of holes - especially if the wind is blowing.
    The greens have been fantastic since the very beginning and putts roll true.
    Not a big fan of the 13th green - I would like to see them flatten it a little - especially in the back. When the pin is in the back - good luck!

    I have played this course every year since it opened and have brought numerous friends as well. So I guess that tells you what I think of it, excellent.

    BTW, try to drive the pond on #10 when the wind is blowing, good luck.

    What a nasty, nasty course! You really need to trust your abilities from the tees because there is not much room for a miss. The greens are tricky for a muni course. The view is impressive everywhere on the course. When humans colonize the Moon, or Mars, I expect to see a course resembling Devil's Thumb.

    Too bad the course loses $500,000/year and may be headed for bankruptcy, ouch!

    This is a great golf course and in my opinion one of the top three courses on the western slope of Colorado. The fairways and greens are always kept in excellent condition and each hole has its own special character.
