I played 18 holes on 2/18/18 {9 holes twice}. I only put the date so you know that this is obviously not the best time of year to play golf. All things considered this was a great course . The guy at the counter was extremely friendly and the whole place had a very laid back feel to it so I felt at home right away. Greens were sandy and fast but like i said it was February. I would like to play it again in summer.

Don’t miss this North Denver undiscovered gem. Had the pleasure of playing Stoney Creek on Halloween- pretty spooky. The course is really great for an executive course. I was there

Midday and there was only a handful of golfers on the course the pace of play was as fast as I wanted to make it.

Great place to practice your short game with close friends. I’ll be back

This was absolutely the worst "golf course" I have ever played. I paid $26 for 9 holes, which is pretty standard for most full length courses around Denver. $6 would have been more appropriate. The course is not maintained, water filled the cups (which was kind cool cause you got a splash when you drained a putt), but draining a put on the sandpaper greens is a whole new game of luck. I left very disappointed. There are 2 par 4's on the course, longest of the two was 285 yards. The rest were 100yd par 3's. Maybe good for beginners, but even at that level, go spend your money on a real course to get better. There is no reason this course should be at the same price point as surrounding city courses.

Ok, this is a course in a cow pasture. It is a very short course that is not manicured. I could see paying 2 for $10.00 but no more.

They had it for $44.00 for 18 holes (2 times around a short 9 hole course).

There are better deals in the city, so save yourself the drive.

This was unfortunate for me to waste time going to this course. It's very small and has duvets and holes and drain pipes everywhere. Along with the sandy Dune-like greens/putting areas the bunkers are made from seashells. It's not a good course to play with no food drinks or concessions. 1 bathroom for everybody to share. I am very upset booking this course in my rounds of play. I golf every day and book a bunch through golf now and was upset this was what I got from this booking.

Course rates were only $15 for round, charged me the golfnow rate at $33 which included cart. No carts available still charged me. After playing their terrible 9 holes I went in to try and get half my money back since we played only 9. Would only give me a free round next time, that's when I was going to argue the rates but guy just said that's what golfnow charges. I will never play this course again and will make sure to let others know as well.

Course isn't worth $8 let alone $66...

This 9 hole course could be a lot better if someone would spring for some grounds maintenance. Tee boxes are shot, fairways are bare dirt in areas and the greens were lumpy and furry. This was our first time playing here and most definitely the last time as well. Don't waste your time or money here unless it is your last resort.....even then think about it first....

The staff here are super friendly and fun to be around. The course has really fast greens and fairways which makes selecting the right club a little tricky but that just adds to the fun. Overall it is a great course. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned veteran you will not regret playing this course.

Incredibly laid back, fast, fun and easy 9 hole course 15 minutes north of Golden. Very nice staff, have been there a few times and always leave with a smile on my face

Played it twice for $10 with a cart via a hot deal and wrapped up in just over 2 hours. Will definitely be back again (have 1 more punch on the card for a free round!)

Better than blowing through a few buckets at the range and cheaper too. And you can buy back lost balls for $5/doz

*and it looks like they are upgrading some of the cart paths but I like the rough and tumble it is now, makes for a fun run!
