(Vail)--The Vail Recreation District (VRD) is pleased to announce the Vail Golf Club has been named Most Female-Friendly golf course by Colorado Avid Golfer magazine in its 2010 Best of Colorado Golf section. The magazine attributed the award to the leadership of Vail Golf Club Director Alice Plain who will enter her fourth year as the golf club's director this season. It also recognized the golf club for hosting the Colorado Women's Golf Association event in 2009, as well as introducing programs to attract players of all ability levels.
"I'm thrilled the Vail Golf Club has been recognized for its friendliness and playability," said Plain. "We continually strive to create new and offer existing programs for all ability levels and all players. This summer will be no exception and we're looking forward to a great season."
The Vail Golf Club is slated to open in May, weather and course conditions permitting. It is nestled at the base of the Gore Mountain Range and presents golfers with a unique 18-hole, par 71 experience at 8,200 feet elevation. The golf club is open to the public and offers a full service golf shop, group and corporate outings, professional instruction, launch monitor, driving range, practice area, club storage, golf swing analysis, club rentals, demo days and an on-site restaurant, Happy Valley Grill.
