Grand Elk Ranch and Club
“Tripp has an incredible vision when it comes to golf course design. He was able to take a piece of ranching property and design a great golf course. Tripp's ability to work with the different constituents made an easy road to go down with all of the different facets of design, permitting, and construction." - Larry Martin, developer

TDA designed this 18 hole layout in conjunction with Senior PGA TOUR player Craig "The Walrus" Stadler in Granby, Colorado near Winter Park. It has spectacular mountain views and many interesting native/wetland areas. Grand County's rugged and expansive terrain definitely inspired Tripp and Craig's heathland styled course. The Heathland style is characterized by sometimes natural, yet sometimes rugged landscape with an emphasis on strategic bunker placement. Grand Elk Golf Club is part of a multi-million dollar development which includes a luxury club with a private clubhouse and pool, home sites and townhomes.
