Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the Red Hawk Ridge golf course offers beautiful panoramic views of Colorado's Front Range and Castle Rock. The rolling terrain causes dramatic elevation changes for a fun, challenging game. It was designed with a traditional links-style layout with large, undulating greens and generous, subtly rolling fairways. The course has many risk/reward opportunities as well as heavy mounding and strategically placed bunkers. With five sets of tees, Red Hawk Ridge accommodates any skill level of golfer. The golf course's landscape is resplendent with lush native grasses and lakes, and several types of wildlife have even made the course their home.

This is a fun golf course everyone should play once due to it's pretty setting and elevation changes. The golf course itself is so-so, maintained well but there is so much more that could have been done to make this course awesome. Your average Sunday hack could have done what Jim Engh did given the amazing plot of land he had to work with. (This is coming form someone who likes most of Engh's courses) A lot of boring golf holes, if not for the large changes in elevation that make this course unique they could only charge $40/round.

During a warm spell in the middle of our colorado winter I went looking for an open golf course. After several calls to closed facilities, red hawk ridge said come on out.<br/> I found a great last second deal on golf now and joined another single on the first tee for a very fun round. Every hole seemed to be unique and memorable. The greens were in excellent condition for this time of year and putted very well. 3 1/2 hr round. Can't wait to go back this summer.

I purchased this round of golf on a hot deal on golf now and played on a 65 degree day in December.. Played the last hole in the dark. Overall this course was fair with up and downhill holes. The course isn't terribly long but does pose risk/reward shots. I will play it again and would recommend it.Pace of play was better than most at 4:15 round.

Red Hawk is one of my favorite courses in Colorado.<br/> The use of the flowing hills and peaks is great.<br/> Views will try to take your mind off the next shot.<br/> But, that leads to tough lies many in the scrub oak or rough. Pay attention to what the designer had in mind on each hole and you in for the time of your life. There are several holes that could be signature holes but 18 is the best. The lake in front of the green will make you think twice about your second shot..Overall great course and I always look forward to coming back and getting even with the course. LOL...I''m about to think its the indian not the arrows Enjoy..

Red Hawk Ridge is one of 4 excellent courses available to play in the Castle Rock area. By far the best course for the money and condition. With 4 sets of mens tees this course can play to all skill sets.. The condition of the course is excellent as it usually is in late summer.

Last time I had the pleasure of playing Red Hawk was back in the early '00's, a few years following their opening. After playing yesterday, I was pleased to see how the course has matured, especially around the green surrounds. F U N design which is pretty much the norm for Jim Engh, course architect. Friendly off the tee with more than a few dramatic tee shots, fun, fast greens and a nice framework from the fairway and green-side bunkers. More 'Mountain' golf than most in the high country, so a great break from the Denver norm and highly recommended! A+

I have never written a review on golf now. I live in Dallas and took a trip to Denver. I booked this course just out of pure luck...just picked a place. WOW. for the price I paid I feel like I robbed the course. Obviously me being from Texas I wasnt used to the beauty of the area. The course was in excellent shape. The course was beautifully designed. If you are looking for a very nice course in the mountains for a fair price... this is it.

We had a beautiful day to play, and the course shined. Good variety of challenges and our foursome of high handicappers never felt overwhelmed. The course was in great condition and the staff was friendly.

Lots of elevation changes and nice views of the mountains and of course, nearby Castle Rock.

I grabbed a GN time for yesterday afternoon and drove out to play solo yesterday. They weren't terribly busy so I was able to go off solo. Young guy in the pro shop was extremely nice.<br/> Played through a few groups and got done with the front in an hour and 15 min. Got a little slow on the back but I was playing great and it was gorgeous out.

I've played this course more than any other in CO. I always enjoy it and with the afternoon GN times, it makes it much more affordable than the typical $72, which I prefer not to spend.

A drive from Denver. But course conditions are fantastic.

This was our first time playing Red Hawk Ridge. Tee time was around 2:30 pm, it threatened rain, but we only got some wind gusts and a few sprinkles. The course was in excellent condition. Riding is a must because of all the hills. It seemed like a lot of the holes were downhill, which made for beautiful views! Panoramic views, we even saw deer in the scrub brush. I'm a 24 handicap female and the whites were good tees for me. Hope to play here again!

Red Hawk Ridge is an outstanding course. Every hole is distinct and very interesting. There are huge elevation changes throughout. There are some very challenging holes including a 650 yard par 5 and a 530 yard par 4 (holes 7 and 15), but there are quite a few easy holes to make up for it (1, 2, 16). There are also a couple great risk/reward holes (8, 18). A few of my favorite holes were 1, 4, 14 and 18. Easily one of my favorite courses that I have played in Colorado. The conditions were great and the greens were pretty fast. The pace of play was excellent for a Sunday afternoon.

This was the second time I've played Red Hawk. It is a solid golf course with some great elevation change and views. It is not incredibly long from the tips and has some pretty generous landing areas. The only complaint I have is that on this day the course was playing pretty slow. Granted it was beautiful out and on a weekend but we tee'd off at 4:00 and sunset was not until 8:15 however we could only get in 15 holes (and the last one was very tough to see).

We did see a baby rattlesnake just behind the 8th tee box so I would advise anyone playing here use caution when searching for balls outside of the grass.
