Unlike The Club at Cordillera’s other two 18-hole layouts, which only open for four months of the year, the Valley course enjoys an extended season because of its relatively lower height above sea level.
The range of golf options when at Cordillera is clearly present. The Valley Course includes the usual Tom Fazio "look" dimensions. The course is appropriately routed so you have enough diversity but the strategic implications are fairly banal.
Turf conditions are ideal and the overall sense of being in the great outdoors is enhanced by the panorama when playing. Clearly, not every Fazio layout needs to be Victoria National, Wade Hampton, Estancia, Galloway National, Martis Camp, Gozzer Ranch, et al. The Valley is your prototypical member's course. Although the layout tops out over 7,000 yards but when factoring into the gains from the altitude it's clearly neither a back breaker nor one to implant a lasting memory. In baseball term -- the Valley is nothing more than a single -- and far from the home run capability Fazio has shown elsewhere.
