The golf course at the Family Sports Golf Course (formerly known as Family Golf Center at Centennial Airport) is a nine-hole course with a links-style layout. The course is perfect for beginners and kids, therefore making it a perfect place for a golf outing for the entire family. Richard Phelps, an extremely popular course designer in Colorado, created the course. The course is 2,241 yards and plays to a par of 31. Although it is a short course it features several challenging elements for golfers to really learn the game or just practice their short game. The average-sized greens are fairly undulating and there are generous fairways. The Family Sports Golf Course also features water hazards that come into play on some holes. The signature hole is the par-5 fifth hole, which is not only one of the lengthier holes of the course, it also plays uphill.

This is a great course for a nine hole track. Even in the winter the course is well-maintained and in good condition. The staff is second to none and very accommodating. Bonus if you like planes, this course is on a final approach to one of the country’s busiest private airports. John Elway may be flying right over your head!

Enjoyed the course but the pace was extremely slow. They were running 10 minutes late before we even begun and we had to wait a bit before each hole.

I like the layout and design of the course, but I have 2 complaints. The range balls on the first fairway are annoying and the pace of play is horrible slow.

I've been playing this course since it opened. I like the layout and close proximity to my house(and of course the staff is always friendly) Today unfortunately, we encountered a group of three seniors that not only played extremely slow, they were horrible golfers! They were driving up to and on the fringe of the green. I hope soon there will be more supervision by a ranger to not let this happen, especially on a busy day!

Love this place! My only complaint is sometimes the pace of play is really bad and the 7th tee box is humped making it difficult to find a good spot to swing from but this is a great place to just play or shake off the rust plus they have a card to play 9 rounds get the 10th free which I've done twice

Love this course especially in my first season to play. I can get out there, completely by myself most the time, and just hack it around. Played yesterday and the course is nicer than some of the more expensive courses I've played around here. Through and done in an hour and back to my day. Good extra amenities with the driving range, chipping area, and putting green.
