The Cedaredge Golf Club is located on the southern foothills of Colorado's Grand Mesa in Cedaredge. In early spring we have days when you can enjoy both winter and summer activities all in the same day. It’s easy to spend a peaceful couple of hours on the cross country ski trails up on the Mesa; then grab lunch in one of the assorted downtown Cedaredge eateries or check out the onsite restaurant before heading out for a relaxing 18 holes on the course.
With a combination of elevated tees, challenging hole layouts, and spectacular vistas, this course will challenge all levels of golfers. Four sets of tees will give all golfers of varying abilities, the ability to test their skills.
A unique 18 hole challenge awaits you in beautiful Cedaredge, Colorado. With two distinct nines, and 5 tees, Cedaredge Golf Club is as difficult as you want to make it. At 6100 feet, with plenty of trees and water, you can beat the summer heat of Western Colorado and get a true perspective of golf on the South/Sunny Side of Grand Mesa. Cedaredge Golf Club is the toughest challenge you will ever fall in love with!
In an era of escalating green fees, this local club is committed to an affordable, enjoyable golf experience and the atmosphere, camaraderie and friendly hometown service reflect it. For more information, visit www.CedaredgeGolf.com
Local resident, Nancy Carlson retired from her teach career and was looking for a new project and a way to contribute to her community. With encouragement from the Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce, she has started work on a barn quilt trail. If you hail from the Midwest the concept of Barn Quilts might not seem unusual but for those who’ve never seen one just take a stroll down Main Street.
These quilts are painted quilt squares-usually fashioned on boards and then mounted on a barn or other building. While cloth quilts are usually made up of a series of squares of the same pattern placed together, a barn quilt is almost always a single square.
Like colossal roadside canvases, barn quilts artistically combine two symbols of local heritage—our barns and quilts. (read more)
While many types of wildlife abound on Grand Mesa, one of the biggest draws is the possibility of coming across a moose cow and her babies. Over the past 30 years, that might have been a rare sighting but beginning in 2005, the Colorado Division of Wildlife has been working to establish a population on the Mesa. From 2005 to 2007 they have relocated 91 moose, 86 from Utah and 5 from the Creede, area to the Grand Mesa.
The term “moose” comes from the Algonquin Indian word meaning “eater of twigs” so the most common place to find a moose is...(read more)
It may come as a surprise to peach lovers and visitors from New York and Washington State but Colorado is an apple state. Apple trees need a combination of hot and cold weather to produce fruit, making them a natural for Colorado but growing fruit at 6,000 feet, or more, is not without its challenges.
Most apple trees like to have winter at temperatures below 40 degrees to encourage them to set fruit. Then they need at least five to six hours of full sun a day once they've blossomed. Apple trees also blossom later than some other types of fruit trees, making them more likely to avoid a killing frost. Many types of apple trees are hardy at our elevation of 6100 +/- feet, making it difficult to choose a favorite.
During a recent visit with Bob Morris out at Red Mountain Ranches we spent some time enjoying the view from his summer office on the porch and ‘talkin’ apples’. (read more)
