Devil's Thumb Course Details

Located in the foothills of north of Delta, Colorado and only 45 minutes away from Grand Junction Devil's Thumb Golf Club offers a unique blend of characteristics. The style is described by architect Rick Phelps as a "prairie style" course.

Just a scenic forty-mile drive south of Grand Junction is a magical place, sacred to the Ute tribes that once lived here. It has history. It’s the place where the tribes met to powwow and trappers came to trade. Today this place is creating a new chapter in its history. The area is making quite a name for itself with numerous wineries, local festivals and a variety of outdoor sports. Gold-medal fishing at its best, hiking, biking and riding off-road vehicles of all kinds are only a few of the fun things to do here. And then there’s GOLF. Devil’s Thumb has become one of the premier golf courses on the western slope of Colorado. Like most sacred places, it’s been somewhat of a secret. Now the secret is out.
