i agree 100% with the jbgarde - this is a gem of a course and the staff is first rate - from the moment they meet you at your car to get your clubs to the time you leave the parking lot. As i understand, with a new nicklaus design course something like over 70% of the course must use original seed (not sod), so this course had plenty of time to "mature" even before it opened late summer 2007. It is a great test of golf and the greens and fairways are awesome condition - ball sits up and ground is forgiving, not hard and dusty as i might have originally feared - i guess the greenskeeper is great golfer so he knows how greens and fairways should be kept. greens are tricky but the ball rolls true. Definitely need to keep the ball below the hole. driving range is great, but need a better short game area which is supposedly coming. I was so impressed with the whole course and concept, decided to buy a lot on the course before it even opened ! The course is already great - i just hope it maintains and improves as it ages and ownership stays the course despite economic troubles

This is an immaculate course from the first tee through the eighteenth. Cougar Canyon features some of the most pristine greens with the purest roll you'll find outside a PGA tournament course. The fairways offer challenging tee shots especially from the back tees. One of the greatest attractions are the "black sand" bunkers which are actually filled with volcanic sand. This sand is very fine and allows a more consistent play from bunkers even when wet. The staff, from the Director of Golf to the maintenance crew, treat you like you are their number one priority and go out of their way to ensure your visit is the best you'll ever have. This course is fairly new and will surely be the top public course in Colorado.
