Green Valley Ranch Golf Club
Along with a nine-hole, par-3 course, Green Valley Ranch Golf Club also offers an 18-hole championship length course. Designed by Perry Dye, the course is 7,241 yards at its longest tees and plays to a par of 72. The course is a short distance south of the Denver International Airport and downtown Denver is easily accessible. The course is challenging and also scenic; it is not a rare occurrence to see wildlife such as deer on the course. Dye successfully incorporated the natural landscape of the area. The natural creeks and wetlands as well as the beautiful cottonwood trees were kept in tact. The course has received several honors from widely read golf magazines such as Golf Digest and Golf Week.

Great Course with Fun Layout and beautiful views
This was my first time playing Green Valley Ranch. We had lunch at the restaurant prior to golf. The waiter in the restaurant was ornery, slow and not too helpful at all.
However, once we got to the clubhouse, everything changed for the better. The clubhouse staff was fantastic, friendly, welcoming and helpful.
The course has a great practice are with great driving range with plenty of grass to hit from (i do not like hitting from mats). Huge putting green and chipping area.
One the course, the holes were very fun and varied. The course is a links type course with lots of very long grass off the fairway with lots of bunkers and lots of wind.
The course is very open course with very few trees. The fairways were very nice and in great condition.
The greens were great. The greens were very fast and had tons of slopes and undulations (like a good links type course).
I really liked the layout of the course. This being my first time playing the course, I was very pleased with the directions to holes were well marked and easy to see.
Overall great course. The bunkers were well kept. The wind was blowing hard around 15-20 mph all day long. There were very few trees to block or disrupt the wind. I would highly recommend Green Valley Ranch. Give the course and try and you won't be disappointed.
GVR in Winter
Great design - Pro shop was awesome - Had a drink in bar after Great staff !
A good value
I liked the lay out and the value the couse offers. I like that it is close to the airport and easy to get to. Right now the greens are a little bumpy because they were punched a few weeks ago. They have a nice practice area with a chipping and putting green. I will play this course again when in the NE part of town.
Amazing fairways for Colorado
The course condition was fantastic for a Colorado course.
He fairways are prefect....the course is very challenging with a great many mid distance Carry’s off tee boxes which really stretch out playing from the blacks
This is an excellent Golf Course. It also has an excellent practice facility. I recommend it to anyone
Great day on the Links.
Very nice day and a pleasant round. We enjoyed the day and course was in good shape. I have played here many times and it is always a good place to play.
Off to a rough start this year
Some rough spots in the fairway, greens are patchy and inconsistent. Overall, off to a rough Spring this year. Still a great place to measure your game.
Ok, so I've been waiting to write a review on this because there weren't a lot of current ones and not to many descriptions so here we go. Great clubhouse with well stocked pro shop. Driving is nice with range balls already on the range for you and I believe they were Callaway range balls. Huge putting green and chipping area. The started will call you up for your tee time and get you and your group together before sending you to first tee. Now the course, nobody said anything but this is a very open course. Almost every hole has houses on them and there aren't many trees, it kinda has a links style to it. You can see multiple holes at once from wherever you are. Bent grass fairways were nice, the greens can be good, I could tell they aerated a while ago bc some of the indentions were still in the green but those will be going away like always. Great layout, directions to holes were easily marked, carts have GPS and they have multiple tees and on the scorecard it gives you different tee combinations so I think it comes out to like 7 or 8 different tees. Also had a beverage cart going around on a Wednesday so that was a nice surprise. Overall great course, the wind was like 20mph and it whips through this open layout but that's part of the challenge on a windy day right? Give this one a shot and you won't be disappointed
Green Valley Ranch is a Gem
This is a great course, very challenging, nice practice facility and the best 18th hole in Colorado
A challenging course in the wind! Still fun
This was a windy day, with gusts to 35mph they said. Yet, the mild temps drew us out. The folks at the course were great. They even told us the par 3 was included for the price and might be a good warm up. It was.
Well, this regulation course bares its teeth with such wind. Significant adjustments were required for shots into the wind, like on #8 from 166, a 200 yard club was short by 20 yards! and on #13 from ~170y, a 230 y club was required to get pin high! #18 is a great finishing hole! Stay left! Check your under your ball on the greens, durn, as there are winter dimples that will affect your delicate putts.
Still, the course was in good shape, the staff was super friendly, and this is a fun day that is worth the extra drive.
Great par 3, especially for a warm up for the regulation course
We got to the course early, I was curious & inquired about the par 3 for future days. It turns out that a round on the par 3 is included in the daily green fee. With that extra, we tried it out. Good for a warm-up or tune up especially with the wind up, you could hone in the bump and run or flighted wedges for the short game with varying wind directions. One minor issue was the mostly range balls scattered on the course. On one hole, it was challenging to figure out which was my ball on a wind blown shot. We cleaned up some. Also some folks play multiple balls.
This was a fun bonus.
one of the top tracks in town. best value in town. play it.
Awesome Layout I like to come back when I get a chance
home of the colorado open
This is a great course, very challenging, greens had been punched recently but ran true and with good speed.
This course gets a lot of acclaim, but frankly I wasn't impressed. NIce conditions as the seasons were changing and winds were picking up, but aside from that not sure what all the fuss is about. Lots of other layouts I would choose over this one.
Played it for the first time in a recent trip to Denver. Loved every bit of it!! Course conditions were phenomenal. Greens were pretty firm and fast but putts rolled true every time. Every green was in perfect condition. The fairways were lush and well kept. I don't think ever saw a brown spot or chewed up grass area. The rough was real rough, long but very fair. The layout is challenging but fair, just need to know where you can take your tee shots. GPS in cart helps with that and was as accurate to every pin as my rangefinder was.
Very professionally run course. They announced tee times and instead of saying "now up on the tee..., second up..., third up..." They called each group and said this is your 8 minute call to check in with the starter. Only had to wait briefly on a couple tees and finished the round in a little over 4 hours.
One tip is to book on their website as there is a definite discount to be had there. Overall I can't wait to play it again.
I think this must be for the championship 18 hole course. You can't drive a cart on the par 3. Fairways don't really pertain to par 3s. They wouldn't call people for the par 3s.
