This was a 2nd run, 2+ years with a different eye due to learning in between. The hotdeals kept beckoning. Short range 225 y makes it irons only for me. The narrow trend showed immediately on #1. Squeezed fairway tugged driver out of the options. #4 requires high degree of accuracy or a mid iron. #7 forced another 3 iron tee shot, short iron, and wedge. #9 tricked me into a driver shot, a miss right made me pay. #9's leaves will eat a non fairway tee shot, darn. #11 tight again, iron tee shot. Pick a straight club to that of with on #12. #13 may try to trick you into driver, but a mid iron keeps you dry. #15 won't fool the wiser into driver, but going right will force a tricky shot under tree limbs to a green with a street to close behind, ugh. Overall, GPS or a yardage book is useful. Know the distances, yours and the course's. Friendly folks. Hit 'em straight!

Course condition was decent, with the exception of the greens which had been aerated recently. The main complaint is that it's wedged in between a bunch of condos and town homes. That means that it doesn't take much to accidentally hit into someones garden. It also means that local residents use it as their back yard. One neighbor was hanging out on a tee box with no shirt, chipping balls around when we came up to tee off.

Several holes had their challenges. Course knowledge would have been a benefit on several holes. Then again so would have improved skill set. An excellent course for locals and seniors in particular.

The course is very noisy and not relaxing.

The pace was fast because there was not anyone in front of us or behind us.

Women's tees were hard as concrete.

Very old and dated.

I read a few reviews that mentioned staff pushing people to keep pace which was a turn off (of golf is a dying sport we collectively have to let people learn how to play the game without being jerks!!) but didn't experience anything of the sort.

Water features were murky but course was prettier than I expected. There are tons of residences to avoid so if you are trying to learn this might not be the best course as you need to have enough control to avoid all of the homes but other than that I thought it was a great course for someone trying to improve their game. Thick grass made finding balls tricky.

But I just played one of the best courses in Coloradoband found Heather Ridge to be quite acceptable for a more value oriented option.

I had a great day playing Heather Ridge. I started alone, so I played the front 9 in about an hour and a half. On the back 9 I caught up to a slower group in front of me. By the time we reached 18, the 2some behind me joined me and there were 2 other groups waiting to tee off. Some of them were getting frustrated, but I had no where to be. All in all, it was a great day.
