What a HORRIBLE golfing experience. Played there yesterday and it took OVER 5 HOURS! That is absolutely ridiculous!! They either crammed in way too many groups, or it was because they had no rangers at all out on the course making sure that people kept things moving. The course is nice enough, and it's in pretty good shape, but it's WAY overpriced. They charge $60 just to walk, and there are courses around Denver that are as nice, or quite a bit nicer, for less than that even with a cart (I'd rather play Green Valley Ranch, which is nicer and cheaper). For a 5+ hour round, and the high price they charge, it just isn't worth it. I will NEVER play this course again (even though I live only about 2 miles away).

This is a great golf course. Really good design on a pretty flat piece of land. No houses on the course and could not have been an easier walk. Great little clubhouse as well. All about golf here and not about all the other nonsense a lot of new courses have. My new favorite course in Denver.

I grew up in Denver and played a ton of golf at Mira Vista ... because it was cheap, not because it was any good. So ever since they built the new course here, getting a round in here has been a priority.

I was not disappointed.

In fact, it was way better than I even imagined. The course there now is just great golf for everyone--it's wide and totally playable for high handicappers and beginners, but still challenging for the good player (due to length, the greens, and the use of angles and well-placed hazards). Big greens, long views, fun shots. I couldn't want anything more out of a golf course.

The greens were slow and just a tad on the fuzzy side. I played with a local who plays CG a lot and he said this was unusual, so I'll forgive it the day after a holiday. The greens are tricky enough that not being fast is fine. The rest of the course was in outstanding condition.

This is the slowest course to play in the Denver area. Every time I play this course their is a pace of play issue. Green conditions are not good. I would pass on this one. When I ask the staff and management they stated that there is nothing thay can do.

Although this course is not technically within the city limits of Denver, it's close enough and is the best track within the city limits. The greens are always in great shape and the pace of play is never an issue. A must play if you are in the Denver area.
