Construction Update: The Lodge and Villas at Flying Horse.
Anyone who has built a home knows that a lot of work has to be done before you get to move in and get settled. Planning, execution, patience, changes, and the continuous anticipation go hand-in-hand. The same can be said about building the new Lodge and Villas at Flying Horse. And like most Flying Horse Club Members, residents of the community and business leaders in our area are all very eager to see these doors open to welcome the first guests.
The Flying Horse team has been working diligently on creating and executing the action plans set in motion to ensure the success of our new addition. “By successfully building upon the decade-long Flying Horse brand and reputation, our intentions are to be a destination property that will host a variety of corporate meetings and events requiring overnight accommodations. Given the onsite amenities, here at Flying Horse, The Lodge is an ideal property to host out of town families on vacation as well as friends and families of our residents and members during the holidays.” said Fredo Killing, Managing Director. With only 48 guest rooms available, the overall impact of guest traffic at The Club will be fairly minimal, as there is plenty of availability in the restaurant, by the pool, and in the fitness areas.
The projected opening timeframe for The Villas is mid-Spring and mid-Fall for the Lodge. You can follow the progress of construction on the Flying Horse Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/flyinghorsecolorado.
To date, the framing of the Lodge is nearly complete, and all four frames of the Villas are up and the roofing is nearly complete on each. The interior walls are going up, windows are in, and the water, electricity and HVAC systems are nearly done. The hand troweled wall texture, hardwood flooring, bathroom tile work, exterior stone work and concrete stamped patios are in the making.
The Lodge and Villas at Flying Horse is accepting early-bird reservations in advance of the actual opening of The Villas and The Lodge. To book your stay, please call 844-768-2684 or visit www.lodgeatflyinghorse.com/reservations.

A few words of winter wisdom from the Golf staff...
The Flying Horse Golf Shop would like to remind everyone who is playing or using the range during the winter months to please check-in with the golf shop before they play or practice in order to receive daily news about the course. (Plus… your golf staff misses seeing you during the off season.)
As always, please contact the Golf staff with any questions you have about the course, golf shop or golf instruction. It's never to early (or too late) to improve your game.
Golf Hours: Tuesday-Sunday from 10:00am – 4:00pm
The golf course is open with the use of temporary greens whenever the snow coverage allows. The golf course is closed on days when snow build-up or new snow accumulation does not allow for play, please contact the golf shop for updated course info.
Outdoor Driving Range Hours: Tuesday-Sunday from 10:00am – 4:00pm
The outdoor driving range is open with the use of mats Tuesday through Sunday. The outdoor range will be available on all days including days in which the range is covered in snow until the point in which only three den caddies of balls remain or the point in which the driving range tee is more than 75% covered in snow; at this point the learning center will be available to hit balls into nets.
Learning Center Hours: Tuesday-Sunday from 10:00am – 4:00pm
The learning center is available to hit balls Tuesday through Sunday. The doors to the learning center may be opened and balls may be hit from indoors to outdoors on all days regardless of snow coverage. Balls may be hit onto the outdoor range until the point in which only three den caddies remain; at this point the learning center will be available to hit balls into nets only. The reason for this is so that we do not run out of balls before the next time we are able to retrieve them.
