About

Holes 18
Type Public/Municipal
Style Parkland
Par 71
Length 6784 yards
Slope 123
Rating 71.3

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.

Great course, where is the marshal?

Great course and a great value. Bad luck had me paired with two beginners. All about people learning the game but hitting 3-4 tee shots a hole and leaving your cart in horrible places when you have a group behind you. Would have loved to see a marshal come talk to these guys. Too many whiskey shots, such little know how of the game.

Hope to come back and play with a better group.
Otherwise, wonderful experience!

Great Course

Great course, very wide open so if you have a slice or hook you are still ok to play. There are very challenging par 5's as well so it isn't all wide open and easy. Great course overall.

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.
