Rating 71.1
Type Public
The Knolls Course is one of two 18-hole, municipal courses at Riverdale Golf Courses, located in Brighton. The golf course is the smaller of the two at 6,756 yards, playing to a par of 71. The team of Perry and Pete Dye deigned the golf course and they included plenty of water hazards. The Dyes also included British-links style rough and bunkers and wide fairways. Although there are some trees, the course is mostly open. The South Platte River snakes its way through the Knolls course, allowing the wind to become a factor in the game. The scattered trees and the river give golfers lovely views while they play the golf course.

Fantastic value!

The Knolls is in fantastic shape and has some of the cleanest and best manicured fairways and greens in the Denver area. Probably the best value for normal pricing that I’ve played in the Denver area. The greens are smooth but not quite as quick as the Dunes. A much more relaxing round of golf than it’s Pete Dye counterpart but still had its challenges. Hit ‘em well and you’ll score well but a few errant shots will really cost you. The course is a lot of fun and the only non-positive thing I could say about it is that it could use a little more fairway undulation and bunkering. Other than that I absolutely loved playing here. Will be back soon.
