Greens are usually good here, played in Feb 2019 and were rough, not much better when played in May. Fairways and bunkers are good.

Beaver Creek was the best public course in the area, but something has gone wrong with the greens. barren and bumpy! impossible to play. Ruined a good round. I am saddened by the condition and hope they remedy the situation post haste!

Fairways and tee boxes are in great shape, sand traps are good but not great, the greens are in really bad shape and the worst I’ve ever seen them, hopefully they will get better soon!

Pace of play was fine. A little slow on the front nine, but not terrible. Fairways always seem to be in great shape. Bunkers could use more sand. Greens are in bad shape. Very bumpy. Will probably wait a while before returning in hopes that they get the greens back.

I have played this course many times and have always thought it was one of the top golf courses in the area. I have never seen the greens and tee boxes in such bad shape. The greens are so bumpy that even a 3-5 foot putt will go offline. I will not be returning to this course. The excuses I heard for why they are so bad ranged from frost a week ago, which is complete BS, to they are transitioning from winter. I can’t believe they still charge full price to play on such garbage.

The greens on the course are in very poor shape currently which is not common for this golf course. The bunkers could use some additional sand as well. The course layout is fair yet challenging.

Overall the course was in pretty good shape, fairways green and trim, rough not to rough, sand pretty good, but some tee boxes void of grass as well as some greens with bald spots. Main issue was bumpy greens, on many ball jumped all over the place as it bounced its way toward the cup.

Not sure what BREC is doing with the thousand stars of dollars in tax payers money, but Beaver Creek needs some attention. Tee boxes were poor and greens looked even worse. Fairways and bunkers were okay. Biggest drawback to playing yesterday was bc it took 6 hours. BREC didn’t have a Marshal to make sure the group of children playing weren’t slowing the entire course. If you’re going to let 7-8 year old see have a birthday party on the course. Make sure they understand the pace of play expectations. Overall experience yesterday was very underwhelming for the price to play.

Marshal was an old jack. Had 2 foresomes on hole 1 waiting to tee off, no one on hole 9 and would not let us (2some) tee of on the back. The course was in great condition considering the winter we have. Back nine was cart path only with was a little overboard, only 1 hole should have been.

Fairways and tees are looking good. They lost the greens a while back due to frost but they've been re-seeded. I got a hot deal so for 18 bucks it was a good track but I would wait a month or two to play for full price. Other than the greens, Beaver Creek is always one of the Better BREC courses.

I always like playing this course because it’s usually in great shape. They must be having some sort of problems with the greens because it’s the worst I have ever seen them, actually over the past 5-6 months they’ve been struggling. The rest of the course is in great shape and the staff was awesome as always.

This is a pretty and challenging course that rewards good course management strategy. Short driving players should play from the white tees, as there are a few holes on the back nine where a difficult tee shot is required from the back tees. Fairways and greens were nice and in good shape. But on this day, the gnats made the course almost unplayable. There were constant, thick clouds of gnats buzzing around me on every single shot on every single hole. Staff assured me that the bug activity is highly unusual. Never seen anything like it before ever on any course I’ve ever played. Not staff’s fault, but it’s worth noting.
