Devil's Thumb Golf Club opened in 1963. Formerly known as Cottonwood Golf Course, this course was expanded in 2001 to a championship, eighteen hole track. The course was designed by Rick Phelps
Located in the foothills north of Delta, Colorado Devil's Thumb Golf Club offers a unique blend of characteristics. The style is described by architect Rick Phelps as a "prairie style" course. More than 60 sand bunkers and 3 lakes frame up this spectacular layout placing strategy and shot placement as the top demands for success at Devil's Thumb. Many holes offer different options, split fairways and well placed bunkers make it an interesting combination that seems to change the course each time you play.
Concentration can be wavered by the beautiful backdrop of canyons and mountains seen from the course. Grand Mesa to the north and the San Juans, West Elks, Black Canyon and the Uncompahgre Plateau finish the picture to the south making Devil's Thumb one of the most uniquely scenic courses you will ever play.
Five sets of tees make the course playable to every type of golfer. From the front tees the course plays to 5180 yards. From the tips it is 7176, a challenge to even the most seasoned player.

Golf on the moon. Anywhere on the course you see good conditions, good fairways and greens. But off the course you see a moon scape. Neat layout. Definite play before the wind kicks up, that’s a killer. My rating B- worth a drive.

Great course. Five sets of tees - you can make it has hard as you want and it can be really tough with wind. Greens are super quick. Will play this every chance I get to that part of the state.

Great course, true test. No wind today, but it can make quite a difference. Facilities are nice, nothing fancy. Greens in great shape, and will get faster as summer arrives.

Some great holes on this course. Sometimes the conditions are not great, but it gets better every year. Will definitely play again and again... fun place, nice people.

Devils Thumb is one of the best courses in the state of colorado! The price is un-beatable, the course condition was magnificent! Absolutely an un-tapped gem!
