First Tee Par 3 at Green Valley Ranch Golf Club
The First Tee Par-3 Golf Course is one of two courses offered at the Green Valley Ranch Golf Club. It is the smaller of the two being only a nine-hole course rather than the 18-hole course that is also at the Club. Although the course is shorter than its championship length sister course, they both share the same amount of challenge to provide an interesting game. The course is perfect for beginners, kids, or anyone wanting a quick but fun game of golf. Undulating greens and trees that serve as bunkers add a bit of difficulty to the course. The holes range from 50 to 150 yards.

Fun Little Par 3
The GVR Par 3 is a fun little 9 hole course. It stretches about 830 yards in total. Longest hole is about 120yds. Always in pretty good shape and a great way to work on your short game.
Great Course and Take a caddie!
I have played 20 of the top 100 courses in the US and this course was great! The course was very fun and every hole was interesting. Conditions were great, pure greens rolling at a 10 on the stimp. They offer caddies where you only have to tip them and they are all kids who are first tee members and the tips help them chase their dreams!!! Take a caddie and help them. Recommended tip 20-40$. A . cart fee is 20$ per person.
Would not have expected to find a top tier course like this near the Denver airport. Extremely easy to get to from DEN. The course was quite challenging (like any from the Dye lineage) but still enjoyable for a 10 and 25+ handicapper. pace of play was steady for a Sunday
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.
This should be linked to the regulation course, not the par 3 course. Darn!
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.
