Slope 138
Rating 71.5
Type Public
The golf course at the Arrowhead Golf Club has been declared the top public course in Denver in the past by Golf Digest, as well as one of the top 75 public courses in the nation. The towering red sandstone rock formations are a trademark of the course, providing a unique and beautiful atmosphere, which is further enhanced by the abundant wildlife that have made the course their home. The rolling terrain provides elevation changes and undulation to the greens. Water hazards and bunkers also come into play on the course. Arrowhead Golf Club's signature hole is the par-3 13th hole. It is a steep, downhill hole with scenic views.

Must play course ! Very scenic!

A must play course. You won’t play a more scenic course. Probably not worth the normal fee of $159 but is worth a golf now price of $120. The course had just been over seeded so fairways were a little long but greens were very good.

Gorgeous setting

Beautiful golf course. Greens have some slope to them, but they rolled well and were a good speed. We had a slow group in front of us. The staff did attempt to speed them up and even asked them to skip a hole, but we were waiting on them again within 2 holes.

Pace of play

The course and layout are absolutely breathtaking. On the day that we played, the pace of play was horrendous. We were told by an employee, playing alone in front of us, that the course hosted a scramble earlier in the day. We chose a 4:03 tee time for the price and due to the recommendation of local residents. We played behind a foursome and two singles on the front nine. We spent 3-5 minutes waiting to hit shots. If it is going to play that slow, I would hope that you would be warned about the pace of play before you purchased golf. If we wouldn't have passed a foursome, golf etiquette says faster players play through. We would not have been able to finish 18 holes. Golf costs $129ish early and $89ish midday. Yes, it was $59ish for our tee time, but anyone with common sense would have advised us about the pace of play.

Amazing experience

If you're in Denver, play this course. Beautiful layout, picturesque everywhere you are. Some holes are challenging, some are scorable. Elevation changes, water, wind on a couple of holes. Signature 13th, par 3, elevated, measured 165-170 yards, 135yards with slope. Choose clubs wisely!! Only real issue were the greens. Even with lag putting, ball kept rolling 3, 4 feet past hole. Many hidden undulations. Club attendants are second to none here. Played in about 4 hours. If you can stand the summer sun, afternoon round is more than worth the price.

Unplayable greens

Look I’m not one to complain about speed of greens but something is up with greens that 3 7-10 handicappers almost 3 putted every green. Very inconsistent and made harder by ruff around the greens that where way to high and lush. The course is beautiful as can be and the layout was Awsome

Such beauty but no rangers????

Hands down the most scenic course, but an expected 4:45 round was lengthened by a group of inpatient guys who thought there was an opening ahead of us...even though we were waiting each hole already. Not one ranger on the course..unacceptable for such a high quality course. Didn’t help either that they allow “riders” of golfers to come along, so we had a bro and sis with their female partner/friend chatting away while we putted, on more than one occasion...they paid a $25 ride along fee, we just got the aggravation of nice people who knew nothing about etiquette...have to come here with a foursome and pray they hire a ranger..

Pretty, but way too slow

Great scenery, good conditions. 5 hours and 40 minutes led to a very frustrating round of golf. Worker says it paces at 4:45 which is too long for a round anyway. Probably a course to experience once, but plan on all day.

We played for the first time May 13 and the course was very challenging -- especially the greens. We enjoyed the variety of experiences on all the holes.

Early spring at arrowhead

Early spring conditions but was in great shape for this time of year. The traps (4,9,15) I was in had sand which in Colorado is a nice surprise). My only disappointment was that the aeration had not recovered enough to have predictable putts

Great time, any time

This course’s views are worth a million bucks and to have played with my wife in a cart for $60, both of us! We’re ahead when we see deer and bucks hanging everywhere and us being able to play in December. We were not the only ones to take advantage of this deal as the course was jammed (5.25 hour round) but worth it every time.

Staff needs a makeover

You came here to hear about the course, so let's start there. This is a breathtaking track with incredible rock formations and elevation changes. Each hole deserves a picture or two. The greens are incredibly challenging. Not a flat spot on them, so even though they are slow, putts can easily slide away from you. If the greens were any faster, they would be unplayable- especially with the wind.

The pro shop staff and bag people/starters however got the day started on the wrong foot. When one of our group members had an emergency, they said they had to pair us up with the group in front of us. This only made pace slightly better for the group behind us- for a hole or two. They will not give you cart keys until the minute of your tee time, which by then you should have already sized up your opening tee shot and pegged it up.

We were paired with a couple 100+ shooters, which really made the round miserable. I am all for everyone getting out to play, but you need to take skill into account when pairing people up.

By the 6th hole, we were already 30 minutes behind and the staff refused to do anything about it. Didn't even get to finish our round with the pace of play.

If you have the cash and time to burn, I would recommend playing this course, but bring your entire foursome- otherwise there are better deals in the area.
