The Fairways at Pole Creek: A Master-Planned Golf Course Community with Spacious Lots and Easy Access to the Best of Grand County 

Golf course living in the mountains of Colorado? It's what dreams are made of! Play a round out your back door in the summer or pop out on the groomed cross-country ski trails that weave through the course in the winter, all while soaking in the jaw-dropping backdrop of the Continental Divide. The closest golf course community to Winter Park, The Fairways at Pole Creek master-planned community of single-family homes and paved roads is nestled amongst well-established trees and surrounds the 27-hole award-winning Pole Creek Golf Course and après-golf hot spot Bistro 28 at Pole Creek. The 1,000+ acre neighborhood consists of 263 sites sized at a minimum of two acres, giving each property ample space to create the ideal mountain home or retreat while maintaining quick and easy access to nearby resorts and world-class recreational opportunities that can literally be accessed from the backyard!

Established in 1997, the Fairways and its spacious, cul-de-sac heavy layout quickly became a highly desirable location in the county, causing its homes and vacant land to be sought-after and experience minimal time on the market across the board. 


Off-the-beaten-path in Tabernash, The Fairways subdivision is tucked away off County Road 5 (dubbed the "4 Bar 4 Road" by locals) within minutes of Highway 40.  It's location gives the sense of isolation that draws people to the mountains, but it's proximity to the highway makes it a prime location for taking advantage of the skiing, hiking, biking, and dining at Winter Park Resort; fishing two of Colorado's nine gold-medal trout streams; hiking, golfing, and skiing at Granby Ranch; checking out adjacent Snow Mountain Ranch's 5,000 acres of recreation space; exploring the quaint mountain community of Grand Lake; taking advantage of the recreational opportunities at Lake Granby; booking tee times for more world-class golfing in the area; and experiencing the truly majestic beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park, And the cross-country skiing and mountain biking opportunities that can be accessed directly from home or a short drive to the trailhead abound!

An hour and a half to Denver, 10 minutes to Granby, 15 minutes to Winter Park Resort, and 35 minutes to Rocky Mountain National Park, The Fairways is truly one of the most central locations in the area. 

The waters of Pole Creek run through the community's acreage, often making it tricky to distinguish the area from nearby subdivisions like Pole Creek Valley and Pole Creek Meadows. The Fairways at Pole Creek is across County Road 5 from both of those developments and is the only subdivision that has the privilege of flanking the Pole Creek Golf Course. 


The investment and commitment involved in purchasing a property requires a familiarity with and understanding of the utilities: water, sewer, electric, gas and phone/internet are just a few of the considerations involved in your decision. All lots in The Fairways require a well and septic system (an investment on the front-end but preventing monthly fees in the long-term). Underground utilities include natural gas, electric, phone, and fiber optic high-speed internet.
