Views of the Rockies and splendid Cottonwoods sprinkled across the course make it an enjoyable game. Five lakes and over sixty bunkers add some challenging elements to the course. Located in Broomfield, the golf course is 6,742 yards from its longest tees, playing to a par of 71. Eagle Trace Golf Club also offers teeboxes specifically made for children. They also have a junior golf program for kids under 10.

Although the course was in decent shape for the time of year I was playing. I would have rather been somewhere else after my experience with the clubhouse staff extremely rude and acted as if the golfers she was encountering was and extreme inconvenience to her. No starter allowed whoever to roll up and just start playing pace of play was about 3 1/2 hours for the front 9. Being that I wasn’t trying to play for 7 hours that day I had to approach the same club house staff and ask for them to defund my back 9 funds of give me a rain check for another day. She refused to do it either and continued to argue. I had to ask for the manager a man that had some type of customer service experience and he was able to get me a refund for the back 9. Unpleased with this

I play a ton of golf and do not understand the negative reviews. The course is in amazing shape for the money and a fun challenge from the gold tees. The staff is very accommodating and always finds a way to work me in. They are all friendly and helpful. I have walked rounds here in under 3 hours and and have never had a round go over 4 and a half hours when fully backed up. Great place to play during the week, alone or with friends!

The deal was for $22.00 + fee, normal cost is &45.00 plus cost of the cart, cart included in th $22.00; not a bad deal for this course. One of my favorite to play.

Very poor course. Me and my friends (4 to 12 handicaps) have only played this course when we find cheap deals on GolfNow because it is no where near worth the normal fee to play here. The course always has at least 2 to 3 holes that are under repair or damaged. The worst part about playing here is the pace of play. Management does nothing to increase the pace, which typically takes around 5 and 1/2 hours to play on average. I will never play this course again and would strongly recommend playing either Legacy Ridge, Broadlands, or Westmoor instead.

After reading comments from others, I was expecting an under average course. Except for a few bunkers that seemed more like asphalt that sand, the course from tee to green was way above average. I want to go back there sooner than later.

The course was SLOW. We were already 20 min behind form the first tee.

There was little or NO sand in the traps. The fairways had left over grass trimmings all over, poor maintenance.

I absolutely love Eagle Trace. It's only 6600 yards but it's creative. The Front 9 is a bit more straightforward and you need to set yourself up with some really good drives. The Back 9 is a blast, some awesome holes, a few short Par 4s that are easily reachable for long hitters like me, 300-350 yards. You have to hit every club in the bag, greens have slope. You hit into a lake on the driving range which seems like fun but is totally unrealistic if they don't have the yardage buoys out on the range. It's a gimmick but it's a blast. The practice bunkers and chipping/putting area is nice though. Totally worth it, can find great deals.

This course was retrofitted with a driving range and tee boxes which congests the course at peak times and lends it an amateur, unpolished experience. The layout was confusing with some tee boxes aligned too close to other greens which led to more than one "fore" experience. Too many holes were too closely aligned with minimal separation allowing the numerous, average golfers to play off the other hole's fairway leading to more delays.

I got this round for an absolute steal so I wasn't expecting too much going in. Course was fun, but the gas golf carts are loud and seem to be speed regulated a little too slow IMO.

Course was in pretty good but shape but the stand out was the greens. Best I've played on this year so far.<br/> Sand traps need some TLC and immense amounts of extra sand.

Front 9 lended itself as a comparable warm up to the back nine. but with back to back par 5's in the middle it give a good chance to make up strokes you're almost sure to lose on the back.

can't wait to go back now that I know the layout a bit

Course is in good shape, although many of the bunkers are now water hazards due to rain.

No cart girl working so beware.

Porter Potties were in terrible shape, but the club house is kept tidy.

Overall we had a great time playing this course, I do love the layout. The issue was the conditions on the course this time. The grass was more green than I have ever seen, but there was standing water in many of the sand traps, and a few holes were so wet that the grass was a soggy swamp.

The Course rules were "Cart Path Only" for the day due to the VERY wet conditions on the course, so in the end I believe we would have saved time just walking 18 holes instead of going all the way back to the cart path after each shot.

The last issue we had was there was not a drink cart on the course for the day, so the only chance you had to purchase drink or food was at the turn.

Overall we had a great time. The weather was nice, we all played well and had fun. Other than the very wet spots, it played well. And of course the group ahead that picked up my best shot of the day on the way to their next hole.

The course was in great shape. My only issue was the pro shop couldn't figure out how or what to charge me. I had my email confirmation that showed the price and they still couldn't figure out how to make the price golfnow offered work. I ended up paying more than I should have, but having driven 45 minutes to get there we sucked it up and played.

I booked this round on Golf Now with no knowledge of the course. It is a nice, very mature course, that winds through a subdivision, though the homes rarely come into play. It is wide, fairly flat and would be a great course for those who like to walk. There is quite a bit of water. The sand traps were not well maintained, hard and crusty, you will not to rake them because you will rarely leave a footprint! The pace was a bit slow but not aggravatingly so. Overall a pleasant round. If it wasn't so far from my home (63 miles), I would play there often. Enjoy!
