Surrounded by the Colorado National Monument, Grand Mesa, and Book Cliffs the Golf Club at Redlands Mesa features dramatic elevation changes that offer spectacular views. The layout incorporates the large rock outcroppings and natural water features that cover the scenic desert landscape. Jim Engh, the golf course's designer, also took full advantage of the rolling terrain. Nine holes play downhill from elevated tees. Bunkers are strategically placed throughout and water comes into play on five holes. The Golf Club at Redlands Mesa's signature hole of the course is the par-3 17th, which features a large green set in an amphitheater of natural rock with a stunning mountain backdrop.

    I had the pleasure of playing this beauty again with a good Colorado golf buddy July 21, 2018. What a great day. Weather was great in the early AM but got pretty warm on the back nine.

    Redlands Mesa is another classic Jim Engh designed track including 11 elevated tee boxes. The Golf Club at Redlands Mesa appears to be a lush dark green carpet flowing through rugged red rock formations with a backdrop of the beautiful Colorado National Monument. Who could ask for anything more for super photo ops?

    Grand Junction has a high desert climate and therefore a longer and dryer season than the courses up in Summit and Eagle Counties.

    Your golf experience at Redlands Mesa will long be remembered for the incredible views from each tee box. The first few holes have the rugged backdrop of Colorado National Monument (which is definitely worth a side trip for a winding road drive comparable to the Grand Canyon in beauty and history). If you're really brave and strong do this on a bike.

    Back to the golf review...... Hole #3 is an almost blind par 3 with a huge green divided by a ridge in the middle. Get on the correct side of the ridge and you're rewarded. On the wrong side you'll get the usual Jim Engh punishment.

    Hole #5 is a dog-leg right par 5 with the Jim Engh signature clown's tongue green. When I played it with my brother years ago we both narrowly missed the elevated green to the right on our third shots. When we got to the green we found my ball 2" from the hole for a tap in birdie and my brother's ball was in the hole for an eagle 3!

    Another classic hole is the #17 par 3. It's a long downhill shot from a very elevated tee to a narrow green in a rugged rock cove. When I played this hole in 2007 a bobcat chased a rabbit across the green as we were about to hit our tee shots. This year the rabbit population was way up and no bobcats visible. Nature's way, I guess.

    The only hole that I feel is too crazy is #13. From the Redlands tee one must bust a 280 yd drive down the middle then cut back more than 90 degrees to have a clear shot to the green. I guess I'll drop back to the Canyon tees next trip.

    Redlands Mesa ranks very high on the fun and beauty scales. It's a great course to play at least twice due to some pretty tricky layouts.

    Bring your camera and your shot making imagination when you come to play Redlands Mesa.

    Redlands Mesa has won many national awards including Best New Affordable Public Course in America by Golf Digest 2001 and many more. Grand Junction is becoming famous as the Colorado Wine Country. Winery tours are available. And restaurants of all types abound in Grand Junction. We enjoyed some beer and a casual dinner with the locals at Breckenridge Ale House in Grand Junction. Grand Junction offers all the national chain eateries like Olive Garden, etc. but more unique options include The Winery Restaurant, Dolce Vita, Bin 707 and 626 On Rood.

    Grand Junction is an interesting city with a great Main St. and lots of history. It's also a great mix of the beauty of Colorado with the climate of Spring and Fall in Arizona....and some super golf. It's a tempting place to retire like many of the homeowners around Redlands Mesa.

    This is a 5-star course!
    I was fortunate to get to play Redlands Mesa on a weekend on my solo Colorado Road trip. Conditions were great as usual. The pricing is very reasonable to encourage more play on this wonderful track. Good move!

    I very lucky to be paired up with a wonderful mom and dad from Morrison, CO and their daughter who's on the local college golf team. She gets to play this super track as their home course. She knew how to read some of the severe breaks on several of Redlands beautiful greens. That helped.

This trip I hit my drive too long into a fairway bunker, then pulled my second shot to the left rough but was able to hit a 7-iron to the green and sink a short putt for another birdie. Such fun!

(The 14th hole has a dogleg right of more than 90 degrees if you bust a big drive down the middle between two large rock mounds as the dad did in our group last week. Shorter hitters have a partially blind shot over the right rock mound.

    Truly breathtaking views, greens are in great shape and a unique and affordable course. They tout their awards, and I can see why, this hidden gem, off-the-beaten path course is a real bargain for the quality and experience you receive.

    A must play.

    Great course but way too pricey plus the Staff and Head Professional have a terrible attitudes... I Will not be back to the Redlands Mesa course. The Bridges and Lakota Canyon are much more accommodating and both are very good golf courses.

    Great course!! One of the best in the state. High-handicap players might find it difficult.
