Fall is a great time to get out on the course, with beautiful colors from the changing leaves and a whole lot fewer crowds. Here is a list of the top golf courses around Denver that you have to check out.
1) Fossil Trace
Only a few minutes outside of downtown Denver, Fossil Trace is located in beautiful Golden, Colorado. This unique and challenging course designed by Jim Engh is fun for golfers of all experience levels. Rates for 18 holes range from $45-$88 including a golf cart, GPS, and practice balls. The land itself is home to a lot of history – from remnants of prehistoric times to vintage machinery scattered through the holes. Before you head home, make sure to stop by the exhibit that details the rich history of the property, located just inside the main doors.
2) Arrowhead Golf Club
One word – Breathtaking. There’s a reason that Arrowhead Golf Course is one of the most recommended golf courses in Denver. Look out over remarkable views of the Denver city skyline and ancient red sandstone rock formations as you challenge yourself to 6,636 yards of championship-level course. From multiple elevation changes to unique water features, you are sure to stay entertained throughout all 18 holes. View the entire walkthrough of the course on their website or book your tee time – you don’t want to miss out on this one!
3) The Golf Club at Bear Dance
Drive 34 miles south of Cherry Creek and you’ll find this gem. According to their website, The Golf Club at Bear Dance is the home course for The Colorado Section of the Professional Golfers’ Association of America. Awarded three years in a row as the No. 1 golf course along the Front Range, your game will be challenged, but you won’t leave disappointed. The mountain-style course is surrounded by Ponderosa pines, oaks, and – of course – a classic view of the Rocky Mountains. It’s everything you would expect in a Denver-area course. Reserve a tee time online and don’t forget to swing by the course restaurant for a Bear Dance Club once you’re finished
