Detailed description of Great Sand Dunes Golf Course At Zapata Ranch, CLOSED 2004

Great Sand Dunes Golf Course At Zapata Ranch is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Mosca, Colorado.

Great Sand Dunes Golf Course At Zapata Ranch first opened for play in 1989. The course was designed by Dick Phelps.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,006 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,327 yards. The longest hole on the course is #8, a par-5 that plays to 608 yards. The shortest hole on the course is #14, a par-3 that plays to 169 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for #8, the 608 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is #14, the 169 yard par-3.

The ranch owners realized the need to protect the unique natural integrity of the property. They sold the Medano Zapata Ranch to the Nature Conservancy in July 1999. The Nature Conservancy continued to operate the inn, restaurant and golf course. In the fall of 2004, The Nature Conservancy contracted Duke Phillips to manage the land, cattle, and bison at the ranch. The restaurant and golf course were closed, and efforts got underway to restore the land to its native condition. The lodge now serves as a center for a guest ranching program and Nature Conservancy events.
