About

Holes 18
Par 71
Length 5992
Slope 130
Rating 72.4
Type Public
The public, 18-hole Applewood Golf Course is a popular golf destination for families. The course is 5,992 yards, playing to a par of 71. The course is located in Golden, against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The course opened in 1961 and was designed by J. Press Maxwell. Maxwell wanted to maintain the natural beauty of the landscape and he successfully incorporated it into elements of the course. Another trace of Applewood Golf Course's scenic appeal is in the wildlife that is often spotted by golfers. The golf course has slight elevation changes as well as water hazards but it is still suitable for all levels of golfers.

Great Experience - Great Course

I run a tournament every year for 23 continuous years. Other than the first few years, it has always been hosted by Applewood and their wonderful management team - Rob Pfohl, every year, with support from Ashley Van Dissel this year.

Everything about the course, from its difficult to easy holes, its wonderful scenery throughout, the clubhouse, drinks, food, pro shop, etc., makes this an event we all look forward to and discuss throughout the year.

The mgmt team is outstanding at making all of us feel very important and they are continually going far beyond expectations to assure our entire group leaves with a very memorable, fun experience.

I highly recommend Applewood Golf Course for any type of golf, whether for a tournament or a round of golf. I am quite confident you too will leave very satisfied with what Applewood has to offer (especially for the price).

This course isn’t in the best shape but the views are great

This course was very basic and relatively easy. It was one of the first days of spring so it wasn’t the best conditions either. Pace of play was fine but that is probably because it wasn’t very busy. I would recommend this course if you want to drive 30-mins from Denver and be in the Foothills of the Rockies and not pay too much for a round of golf.

Great course conditions for the amount of snow they had over a week ago. Pace of okay was a little slower just due to cart path only and it being 70 outside in March. Overall it was a fantastic day.

Nice layout

Love the layout, don't like the car path only rule in the winter. Defeats the purpose of a golf cart. It was a fun time playing with the 3 older gents especially Hal

Great Value & fun layout

This course plays fairly short, and the greens are not too tricky. Meaning...get ready to have fun and shoot low! Played 12/2, so it was a blessing just to be on a course this time of year. Staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating. Close to restaurants/bars etc. Take a Coors tour after an impressively quick round at this gem of a course.

Don't wait like I did

Drove past this course quite a few times and always though I should give it a try. After 10 years I did and wish I had not waited so long. The layout is so much fun, nothing boring about it with holes going both directions as well as long and short. I would play it more often if I did not live over an hour away, wish this course was closer. Give it a try and don't wait like I did.
