Haystack Mountain Golf Course in Longmont utilizes the natural landscape of the course to provide a fun and challenging nine-hole course. Cottonwoods line some of the fairways and are scattered throughout and the lush greens meld seamlessly with the rolling terrain. The public, executive-length golf course is 2,153 yards from its longest tees with a par of 32. The course features a links-style layout with lovely views of the Flatirons. It is a relatively flat course that is suitable for all levels of golfers. Although it is a shorter course, the interesting layout guarantees a challenge for all. Haystack Mountain Golf Course's par-4 third hold is the signature hole, which features a tricky dogleg left.

Not the best course I’ve played....

Definitely not the best course. You have to wait in line for the 1st tee since they don’t do reservations. The course is poorly maintained with dead spots throughout. Worst greens I’ve ever seen. There is no fairways. Just shorter rough. However....! It was a very pretty course. Lots of trees and streams and ponds. Not an overly difficult course but with the course conditions, it makes it harder.

Haystack

Letting a single out when not busy is alright. However there were 3 parties behind her. This really slowed down play.

GolfNow Ripoff

I booked a 9:30 am tee time. The course told me that they don't reserve tee times and I had to wait for one hour in a long line. GolfNow was deceptive in saying that the tee time was reserved.

Great in many ways

I have always loved the course and played it a lot more than ten years past. It is still great. The greens are super soft and tend to be torn up and the tee boxes can be sparse.

Great layouts and views around a lush creek that runs through it. Price reflects conditions and overall is fun to play.

The Greens are Green!

Finally, the “browns” have turned back into greens. Still bumpy and some dead patches but much better than a month ago when there was hardly any green to be found. The rest of the course is nice, new first tee which adds a challenging dog-leg right to the hole. If you haven’t played here you have to try it out, relaxed, fun place to improve your irons.

Greens are slowly but steadily improving.

Tee boxes have markers now along with yardages.
Tee box for hole #1 has been relocated and now sits left of the Driving Range. This is a great improvement adding some interest to the hole as well as placing the starting tee within view of the pro shop and the driving range.
Greens are improving weekly, after suffering from the late spring freezing temperatures.
Staff was friendly and helpful.

Jusy don't.

Its $10 for a reason. Had a 10:00 ter time. Got there and at least 30 people are at the 1st ter bix waiting. Pro shop told me they have such thing as tee tines and the wait will be 2 hours.
This place is a waste. Go play in your backyard.

Fairways are great! What's up with the greens?

The staff and fairways are both performing great. I just don't get what the problem is with the greens. We play here regularly and the greens have not really shown that much improvement over the past eight weeks. Maybe they needed a week under the visqueen hospital conditions several weeks ago to bring them up to par. A couple of tee box markers at each hole with yardage would be welcome also.
All said and done, this is a great casual course the is welcoming and fun. Wildlife and scenery is abundant. I've seen Bull snakes, deer, elk and bear at various times. I'm going to keep coming here to golf whether they get the greens figured out or not. I just think they need to work on those two items (turf on greens and tee boxes).

Easy Going and Fun

Would love to have grown up with a course like this near me. Super fun track to play for beginners, and intermediate players. Walking only, very enjoyable track to walk not many hills. Great place to bring five clubs and have fun.

Farm turned golf course

I was visiting Boulder and used Golf Now to book a few rounds. I guess i did not do my homework. Showed up, beautiful day to a 9 hole, mostly 3 par course. I just didn't pick that up on the overview.

The lady at the course was very nice but I have to say this was about as primitive a course as I have played. The fairways were pretty much back yard length. The greens small, slow and not in good shape. No sand. No water really, I think on lake.

I don't want to be unfair or anything but this is really just a local little course for very relaxed, beginner kind of golf that was not really in golf course condition.
