About The South Forty

Welcome to
The South Forty

The South Forty Golf Course and Driving Range is a challenging 9 hole, par 3, links style golf course. We are located in Cortez, Colorado; just northeast of the Four Corners area where the four states of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah meet. The course and range are located on 50 acres. The area is surrounded by the Ute Mountain, Mesa Verde, and the La Plata Mountain Range. A creek runs through the middle of the course, thus offering several challenging crossings..

We are very user friendly and offer reasonable rates. Family oriented, we encourage golfers to bring their spouses and children. Children 12 years and younger play free with a paying adult. There is also an area near the driving range that can be used for a “bring your own lunch” picnic.

Since we are often self-service, we are open daily, weather permitting, from sun-up till sun-down. The ball dispenser for the driving range works on $1 bills or tokens only. $1 bills or 1 token will give you 1/2 bucket of range balls. Tokens are available when there is an attendant available. (NOTE: Exact number of balls in 1/2 bucket and a full bucket are subject to change.) We take cash and checks only... SORRY, NO CREDIT CARDS..

(The South Forty is Pet Friendly)
Be sure pets are well-behaved and under your control

Perfect day for golfing bliss
