Introducing the Hill Country to High Country Connection

Periodically, the Club at Cordillera in Vail, Colorado, gets mixed up with Cordillera Ranch in Boerne, Texas.  It’s not too much of a surprise given that both are luxury residential communities with exclusive private clubs that include Nicklaus Signature golf courses and other activities and amenities, including equestrian facilities. The similarities don’t stop there — several members here at Cordillera Ranch in Boerne are also members of the Club at Cordillera in Vail and many of the members at Cordillera Vail reside in Texas and spend parts of the summer and winter months in the Vail Valley. The Club at Cordillera in Vail provides Texans a break from the summer heat with three lush mountain golf courses while Cordillera Ranch offers year-round golf and a reprieve from the winter and spring snow.

Although the connection between these two premier private clubs has been in name only thus far, the Club at Cordillera in Vail and Cordillera Ranch in Texas are now teaming up to offer their respective members a limited opportunity to experience the other club via the new “Hill Country to High Country Connection” program. The Hill Country to High Country Connection offers the Clubs of Cordillera Ranch members the exclusive opportunity to visit the Club at Cordillera in Vail, play their golf courses and enjoy other membership privileges for two days during their open season (generally April – October).  The Club at Cordillera in Vail offers three golf courses with distinctly different breathtaking settings: the Valley Course designed by Tom Fazio, the Mountain Course designed by Hale Irwin, and the Summit Course designed by Jack Nicklaus.

The Vail Valley is well-regarded as one of the top vacation destinations in North America, with its mild, dry summers and crisp mountain air countered by the powder snow days on the world-class Beaver Creek and Vail ski mountains in the winter. With the Eagle-Vail Regional Airport just 30 minutes away, it’s easy to get to by plane. The Valley also offers world-class cuisine that you would only expect to find in the major metropolitan areas.

This is not a traditional “reciprocal” program where each membership base is open to the other club and community — it’s better than that and yet more limited. First and foremost, both Clubs are equally protective of their members’ rights to Club privileges and exclusivity. The Hill Country to High Country Connection is simply a one-time opportunity to be personally hosted by the other Cordillera and enjoy the membership privileges and experience the community for a limited time. You will have the opportunity to entrench yourself in the community, meet other members and property owners, and really see what the lifestyle is like first-hand. The availability will be limited and will be first come, first-served. The ownership and management of both clubs feel their members will find great value in this opportunity.
