Situated less than ten miles south of the small town of Eagle in the Rocky Mountains, Frost Creek is named after W. E. Frost, a settler on the property in the 1880s. It’s also the name of the creek that bisects a massive 1,100-acre parcel of land located in the Brush Creek Valley.
Formerly known as Adam’s Mountain Country Club before a change of ownership in 2015, Frost Creek sits next to the White River National Forest, offering members a variety of outdoor sporting activities including this Tom Weiskopf-designed 18-hole layout.
Stretching to 7,155 yards from the back markers, the fairways on this mountain course are routed around several man-made lakes, with water coming into play at more than half the holes, though the element of aquatic challenge never seems too oppressive or overbearing.
Highlight holes include the longest par four on the card, the double doglegged 6th which plays moderately downhill and left, past a pond on the left side of the landing area, before plunging seriously down and right to the putting surface – play this as a par five and you’ll be happy to walk off the green with a bogey.
This is a really fun course to play. Generous fairways, but the greens are SLICK. They roll incredibly well. Sounds odd to say - because of its mountain location - but these are some of the best greens I have ever putted. If you put it on line, it's going in the hole.
Just like other Weiskopf designs, there are good risk/reward holes. Very playable and enjoyable. Good shots are rewarded. The front nine and back nine play a little different, but both very enjoyable. The layout is in front of you - no trickeration. Unreal vistas. Good golf holes. Great condition. Definitely worth it.
