As good as a mountain course can get
Initially I was going to give this course just four stars instead of five because I felt like the fact that there are substantial distances between tees took away from its flow. But after hearing architect Todd Schoeder talk about difficult it is to build mountain courses -- and this one was particularly difficult -- I decided to give this one a pass. Courses that are built on mountains (not in the valleys) have special challenges. Why I like this course so much is that every hole is memorable and well thought out. If you're not wild with your shots, you will find your ball and be able to hit it again. The greens are interesting and this course is downright stunning. The backdrops of the Rockies are incredible. It is indeed one of the most fun golf courses I've ever played, and I rate fun as my no. 1 factor in reviewing a golf course.
