It had been 8 years since playing here. It was tough then and tough today. Not only is this course long but shots have to be precise. It was windy. Staff was great and so were the emineties. I would have given it a 5 star but the course conditions due to weather, burnt everything on the fairways and greens. It was sad to see. I hope the staff will be able to make a comeback. Lack of snow and water did this. Other than that, this is a great course.

This is the first time playing this course for me. This course is currently in the worst condition I have ever seen a course even if it was winter golfing conditions.

I really hope that they quickly do something to save it as the layout of this course is really nice but is not even close to what they advertise on their brochure. I added 6 photos, the first three are of the fairways and the last three are of the greens.

Currently I would not recommend this course until they improve it dramatically.

I've played at Antler for over 5 years. This is the worst I have ever seen it. No water with a dry winter means the course is burnt out, especially the greens with aeration a couple weeks ago. The sand and aeration punch holes were everywhere significantly negatively affect play. Won't play again until I know everything is grown in and greened up.

I wish I had thought to take pic's. Entire course is dead/dormant, including greens. It's a challenge to even find a small patch of grass to hit a fairway shot from. Putting is impossible. paid $50+ and it was the worst money I've ever spent. $8.40 breakfast burrito looked & tasted like it was a week old. BTW - practice area is just as bad as the course... that should have been a clue for our foursome to walk away. I'm not sure how they get play charging full price for an absolute goat-track.

Course is extremely long from back tees, but played shorter due to dormant conditions. Course is still very dry as they don't seem to be irrigating, yet. Look forward to playing in about a month when course conditions should be much better. Can't expect better this time of year at approx. 6500' elevation.

The elevation and time of year excuse are lame. Played other courses locally and none as poor as this. Is this review written by the course management?

I am not a complainer, but the course is in horrible shape right now. It will probably be mid June before it is where it needs to be. I love this course when it is in good shape, but it takes the longest to get ready for the season out of any of the courses in Colorado Springs.

Don't waste your time heading to Antler Creek.

Tee boxes, fairways, greens are all DRY and DEAD.

There is NO GRASS.

Front 9 was closed so had to play the back twice and it was cart path only.

I know it’s early April but the course condition was incredibly poor. I don’t recall seeing any green at all. Not to mention it’s the longest course in Colorado and there was nothing about cart path only until we were ready to go. Not a bad course in the summer but should not be more than $20 in this condition.

I know it’s early in year but didn’t look they’ve even turned on a sprinkler, the fairways were bone dry so actually a disadvantage to be in them. We’ll try a round later in year but not impressed now.also cart path only vs. 90 degree which was another issue

Great layout. Conditions for late winter were hard and dry. No sand / seeds in cart to fill divots. They should water / soften the greens on warm winter days. All that being said, very good value for the price paid.

The course is well designed and challenging. However, the head pro is extremely rude and lazy ( I think his name is Tyler). As you walk into the pro shop you are greeted by a rude/unfriendly person who you think is just hired help. Then you find out he is the head pro. Can't understand why the owners would keep him employed. He is such a NEGATIVE reflection. Recommend the course, but make sure you are ready to be greeted by an unprofessional head pro.

You always hear about how long the course is (8,000+ from the tips), but plenty of tee options.

Challenging course both off the tee and around the greens. This makes it great for match play and pretty bad for stroke play. More than the distance, what detracts from playability is bunkers pinching the landing areas and tightly fronting several greens. If you're intimidated by sand, this is not your course. I was in 7 traps.

The day I played (warm winter day, breezy), the pins were tucked on several holes and not very accessible, especially because the greens were firm and the winter grass thin. The course is far enough from the mountains that wind is almost always a factor, but the design doesn't favor a ground game. Guessing it plays better in the summer.

With heroic carries and plenty of lateral trouble, it's a fun course for match play, a frustrating course for stroke play. Your card will get blown up somewhere. My playing partner was a 5 handicap who shot in the mid-90s from the back tees. But he eagled the 667-yard 7th, which was worth the price of the Hot Deal.

Course has a nice practice area. Pace of play was good for a Saturday during off-season.

Early afternoon tee time--50-60 degrees and little wind. Course can be a little rough in the Spring, but not so now. Warmed up on the grass driving range which was in immaculate condition--mirrored the fairways and tee boxes on the course. Greens were in great shape as well. Have always loved that this course features so many different tee boxes--as my age and handicap have grown (now 65 and 20), I'm still able to enjoy the challenge of playing it. Played the yellow tees (66.9/118) and shot just below my handicap. Staff was great and, given the scarcity of players (their loss), just told me to go when I was ready. Looking forward to getting out again before the cold weather arrives.
