Course is a pretty good layout, but the pace of play was terrible. We waited on 6 straight hold for 7-10 min on each tee. When the Marshall finally showed up on 16 he told us it was too late to do anything and that it was not his fault and drove on. The let a foursome dictate the pace all afternoon. It got so bad that we did not play 17 and 18 we just left. When we told the gentleman in the clubhouse he tried to justify why it was not their issue. I sent an email to the pro, no response.

Being fair, I need to amend my review as I was tracked down bye the pro and he apologized for the issue. The email that he had for me was incorrect (my fault). He apologized for the issues and offered me another opportunity to come out to the course. I will go out another time and give it another go!!

Having driven from Hilton Head to visit family I found this course an unexpected delight from start to finish, well worth the drive. Course condition was excellent with kudos going to the "super" and his staff for it's fine maintenance. Fairways, rough, traps, greens and tee boxes were superior, didn't roll a ball all day. Courteous staff was encountered throughout round and the food was not only good but fairly priced. Great day at a great course, looking forward to my next visit.

The front nine is excellent, and can be moderately forgiving. I usually shoot 2-3 strokes better on the front than the back. The greens are fast, but not breaking the stimp-meter. Good long driving holes.

The back is another story, as it is more a links style. Every missed shot can cost multiple strokes. The fairways are tight, bordered by tall grasses and ditches, or water. Easy to lose a ball. Lot's of risk/reward decisions to be made.

This is what you would expect from a Robert Trent Jones course.

Ute Creek. I've had the good fortune of playing many, many rounds at this course through the years. I really love it here. Great value for a great course with a great designer behind the layout. Plop this course down anywhere on the east coast and your easily paying out $100-$150 for the round. No where close to that here in Colorado, just a great value. Enough said.

Not a big fan of Trent Jones designs, but this course was fair for the avg player. From the back tees it still entertains you with awkward sight lines and Bunkers that mess with your depth of field.

Great Value and great course. I would definitely play there again, no question.

Ute Creek is still a hidden gem, mainly because it is a distance from most population centers in the area. Everyone I've taken there has gone, or wants to go, back.

It is just a great course, good layout, and friendly place to play for any player.

I really like this course . It can play way too long for me yet has tees that any one would enjoy. Well bunkered and good water placement make this a super links style course. The tees and fairways are in great shape and the greens are excellent. The 5 par 5's and 5 par 3's are unique. Fun to play.

Ute Creek is a wonderful course to test yourself, and enjoy beautiful scenery on the course as well as the nearby Rockies. Pick from three tees to match your game, 7200 from the tips, 6700 for a mid-range, and 6200 for us mortals. That said, the fairways are generous and you have no excuses there, unless the wind is up on this wide open layout. However the greens are well bunkered and depending on pin placements will be more challenging to get close. The greens are typically fast and smooth, and while they were lightly sanded when I played it had no effect on putting. You'll enjoy the layout, offering the traditional two 3-pars and two 5's on the front, before switching it up across the back with three of each.

This was a great first experience. The course has interesting hole shapes, not just out and back. Some high risk/ high reward shots where you try to reach a par 5 in 2 by cutting off some yardage. But you risk a sand trap. The trouble is generally visible (I hate hidden hazards, so unfair) and my only complaint would be that the sand is fairly coarse. Pace of play was outstanding for the front nine, but then we caught the field and it was more like 2:20 on the back. Not awful, but kind of meh. I recommend and will return at some point

Best bang for your buck I know of in CO. A fun but challenging course with great views. Love the three par 3's and three par 5's on the back nine. The course is run professionally, but also as friendly as I have encountered.
