“Fabulous Golf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

My husband and I were on a ski trip but not much snow so he decided to play golf. What a fantastic place. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. the course was well maintained in beautiful surroundings. There were assistants driving round always ready to assist with shots or advice on how to play a hole. Also a refreshment cart which would also deliver food that was ordered via the computer in the cart.
The course has some "different" hazards, huge rock formations, water hazards that were challenging. We had a fabulous day as the course is in a valley it was very warm and I even got sunburnt on my leg and arm not bad for early April.
We had a snack in the bar afterwards which was very enjoyable.

“Great golf course!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

My buddy and I took a golf trip to Denver and this was one of the courses we were told to play. We really enjoyed the course - lots of elevation changes, beautiful surroundings (mountains and the rock formations), excellent service, and free divot repairs (that nobody seemed to use). The greens were a little worn and shaky but otherwise fine.
Our only complaint was that the rough was really hard to play out of. Granted, this could be normal for golf around Denver, but there is definitely a penalty if you find this thick stuff!
I would definitely play here again one day.
