Good golf course with good facilities. But when they have 5 different sets of tee boxes but then move the markers up to the closer box, willy-nilly, you mess up the handicap system; you mess up our golf bets; and you take away the players' choices. It's like some of the other reviewers have said--they do these things solely to speed up play and make things work better for them. Ridiculous. Why even publish a scorecard when you're going to get potluck anyway!!!

this is a nice course with some very challenging long holes, but if your an amature golfer who shoot's in the 90's be prepared to be harrassed through your intire golf game by rude course marshalls who will push you to play faster and faster golf to the point your not having fun anymore. Even when there is no one pressing behind you, you will continue to be harrassed by marshalls to keep playing faster golf. my experiance on this tough course was on a tuesday, not crowded, clear skies, very little wind and a perfect day for golf, I shot a 90 and will never go back again due to rude pushy marshalls, I can't even begin to emagine playing there on a weekend, must be like prison golf.

A very refreshing design, unique and fun to play. The layout is challenging, but also allows for a good amount of creativity and shot-making. Typically very well maintained, and the practice facilities are definitely some of the best in the Denver area.

This course is a perfect course to perfect you up and down game.The ruff will eat you up,so it helps you concentrate on hitting the fairways and the bunkers makes you get it on the green.
I like this course I may play it agin before the year is up.

Wonderfully maintained, well laid-out. Has great character - old barns and farm machinery, wooden flag poles and wooden buckets and dippers for towell water. This is a prarie grasslands course, with a few small lakes and creeks, few trees. The wind can be a real challenge here because it is so open. The bunkers are deep and plentiful and strategically placed. The greens are protected like a fortress. The traps force you to play into certain landing areas that are actually quite generous and large. It's the kindof course that rewards safe shots, but tempts you to challenge some of the bunker positions. With it's reputation of being a difficult course, if you are hitting the ball decently and play to the perscribed landing areas you can actually score very well here, because the greens and fairways are always in such beautiful shape. This course can play very long from the black or blue tees. The white tees are still hard enough. There are some very challenging shots, especially on the back 9, along lakes and gulleys, with approach shots to greens perched on the edge of trouble. Over all, one of the area's best.
