The best golf practice facility in the area. Or so we’re told…
“Arnold Palmer designed this gem, and it has the best practice facility in the Vail Valley.”
Golfers tell us one of the things they like best about our practice facility at Eagle Ranch Golf Club is, when they hit a drive on our range, they can see how far it goes! And with up to 30 grass hitting stations, that’s a lot of happy golfers practicing drives!
Our practice facility gives you ample opportunity to practice every stroke you’ll encounter on the course. Another perk of practicing here. The entire range is about 400 yards long and 100 yards wide. There’s also a teeing area at the other end of the range that’s open to the public — a nice quiet area.
We have five target greens, two putting greens, one chipping green, one practice bunker and a separate teaching tee. There is also a 4-hole chipping area near the clubhouse.
For your lessons, we maintain a teaching area separate from the public hitting area, so you can learn without distractions. We offer private, group, beginners, ladies-only, quick tips and free clinics — along with demo days and custom club fitting.
Our First Tee Program is strong. Check that section of our website for details, schedules, etc.

Jeff Boyer – Eagle Ranch Director of Golf
Jeff has been a member of the PGA since 1996 and the “Pro” at Eagle Ranch since it opened in 2001. He enjoys sharing his passion for the game with his students and believes that they should first focus on the target and create a positive mental image of their shot, whether it is on the putting green or at the tee. He also believes that a proper swing plane is the best way to achieve consistent shot-making.
Nate has been a member of the PGA since 2007 and Head Golf Professional at Eagle Ranch the last three seasons. He also worked two seasons as the First Assistant and a season as a PGM Intern at Eagle Ranch prior to becoming the Head Golf Professional. Nate’s teaching philosophy is that all students can improve by focusing on the fundamentals of a sound grip, good posture and ball placement. He has a strong understanding of the cause and effects of swing faults and how to correct them.
Erica has been a member of the PGA since 1997 and has taught at Eagle Ranch for the past four seasons. Prior to coming to Eagle Ranch, Erica was the Head Golf Professional at the Cordillera Mountain Course in Edwards, CO. Erica especially enjoys teaching women and helping to improve their knowledge and skill. An accomplished player herself, she has a great understanding of the skills required to play at a high level, but also has the ability to simplify the basic fundamentals for a beginning golfer.
Ed is a level one apprentice in the PGM program. Prior to coming to Eagle Ranch Golf Course, Ed was the 1st Assistant at a private course in Northwest Indiana. Ed competed in four years of NCAA division two golf, and has very traditional views on the golf swing. Solid fundamentals will ultimately result in a more consistent and fun golf game.
Eric has been a Member of the PGA since 2004 and is in his first season at Eagle Ranch. Eric has been in the Vail Valley since 2000, and was previously the Director of Golf at Adam’s Mountain Country Club. He has an excellent playing resume, having won many section events, and was voted PGA Assistant of the Year in 2004. Eric’s teaching belief is based on working from the green out and he places a very strong emphasis on the 100 yard and in portion of the game. He loves working with golfers of all ability levels on improving their short game and believes that is the key to better scoring for most players.
