LA VETA, COLORADO
Grandote Peaks Golf Course is a Thomas Weiskopf and Jay Morrish designed course, founded in 1985. Since then, we have grown into a favorite of golfers far and wide. As a destination course, Grandote Peaks now offers lodging, receptions, poker nights, fine dining, and a full service bar - all at a very affordable price.
The Grandote Peaks proshop is located inside the newly renovated clubhouse. Stop off at hole 14 for a custom personal pizza and beer. Tee times are 15 minutes apart, so it's rarely crowded and we do accommodate parties larger than four players. Book your event at the Events Center or the Pole Barn and plan your stay at the Grandote Lodge & RV Park.
Specializing in prime rib and steaks in the evening, delicious sandwiches at lunch and full breakfasts in the morning, the Grandote Steakhouse offers quality food at an affordable price from April through October each year. Private events can also be catered through our restaurant by calling 719-999-7529.
The Grandote Pizzeria is located right at the entrance to the golf course, off of Colorado's Highway of Legends. A personal pan pizza is $9.99 and we have a wide selection of beer and beverages.
The Grandote Events Center is coming online in April of 2024 with over 5000 SF of available space to host any event: weddings, conferences, conventions, dances, comedy shows, concerts, and parties. Rent the entire property, or just a portion of it.
Our 100 year old pole barn is ready to host your old fashioned wedding! Arrive in a horse drawn carriage, have a barbeque and finish with a hoe-down. Reasonably priced and lots of fun!
Grandote Lodge is ready to host your group of up to 12 guests and parties are allowed. We can rent the lodge out for just a few people or for a whole group, so contact us at 719-999-2006 for rates. The lodge is located right across the street from the golf course and pizzeria and a short walk from the gas station, hardware store, and convenience store.
Grandote purchased the Elk Valley property in 2023, and will re-open the RV park in April of 2024 in time for the golf and tourist season. Additionally, we hope to be adding cabins for seasonal employee housing or tourist housing. The RV Park is next to the Cuchara River with a beautiful view of the golf course and Spanish Peaks.

In 1985, the Grandote Peaks Golf Course was opened by Thomas Weiskopf and Jay Morrish in a little town in southern Colorado called La Veta, located along the Highway of Legends. "Grandote" means "the great one", and with its breathtaking views and cool summer temperatures, Grandote Peaks Golf Course quickly became a favorite spot for visitors from the five surrounding states. Golfers loved the perfectly laid out course - from hole #1, where you shoot over the trees, to hole #14 where you can see the entire La Veta valley, to hole #7 where the Cucharas River winds its way around the green. Visitors enjoyed the mountain town of Cuchara, partied at the Dog Bar, and spent time in the art shops along main street in the quaint town of La Veta. So when the course closed in 2014, It was heartbreaking to the golfers who came here every summer and to the homeowners who moved here specifically to live on a golf course. The golf course closed, but underneath all of that overgrowth the fairways and greens were biding their time, waiting for the right owner to come along. Seven years passed and finally, in 2021, new owners discovered the charm and magic of the La Veta valley and they didn't hesitate to reopen Grandote Peaks Golf Course. Their vision was to not only bring back the previous glory of the course, but to improve all of the facilities so that it could be a premier destination property.
In 2022, the first nine holes were opened, and in 2023, the full 18 holes opened. The entire course received brand new greens that took off like lightning due to the summer afternoon showers, and golfers were amazed at how quickly the course came back. The total renovation of $3.5M included major repairs to the sprinklers, the fairways, the pole barn, new golf carts, new mowers, new tractors, brush clearing, AND a full "top to bottom renovation" of the clubhouse resulting in a new pro-shop and full service restaurant and bar called the Grandote Steakhouse. And don't forget the addition of the Grandote Pizzeria, located right off of Highway 12, between holes 14 and 15 where you can get a personal pan pizza or panini sandwiches and plenty of cold beer.
To complete the hospitality side, Grandote Golf purchased the Elk Valley property, located right across the street from the golf course, in July of 2023. The log cabin was renovated as well and is now a 4000 SF lodge that sleeps up to 12 guests. The 9000 SF building was turned into an events center, with the ability to hold up to 200 guests at a time. The final piece, the Grandote RV Park, will come online in April of 2024, with 22 RV spaces, of which 4 are pull thru spaces that can handle RVs up to 60 feet in length.
