Purists will probably love it here.

I've found that there seems to be a divide amongst golfers when it comes to how they rate courses. Some people tend to rate based on how pretty/scenic or unique a course is. Others tend to rate based on purely technical aspects; routing, difficulty, design, etc.. Most truly great courses excel in both areas (e.g. Augusta, Pebble, etc.). While I can certainly appreciate the more technical aspects, I'd personally rather play a beautiful but boring course over a bland but technical one. TPC Colorado falls well into the latter. It's got a few holes that are quite memorable, and a few views that aren't half bad, but it was obviously more designed with the purist in mind. The same guy that dislikes Wolf Creek for being "too gimmicky" will most likely LOVE TPC Colorado. There were stretches that I thought were brilliant (4-6 and 16-17 are great), but also stretches that kinda bored me (9-12 could really be set up anywhere, and honestly felt like the more mundane holes at Paiute). I'm glad I played it before it gets built up and more expensive, but for the price it's really only going to be truly appreciated by a select few.

Pros: AMAZING staff; they all seem to care about your experience. Great conditions, which it should be since it's only been open a few months. Awesome range with tons of options for short game practice.

Cons: Price is high, like all TPC courses. Not exactly the most scenic or unique. Overly penal in a few spots (miss the 15th green a few feet short and you're gonna have a bad time). They're still operating out of temporary structures; No clubhouse, no restaurant, so don't expect any frills.

My new favorite TPC

Sorry Sawgrass, Snoqualmie Ridge and Scottsdale.
The TPC Colorado is my new favorite of all of the TPC courses I've played in America (the TPC Danzante Bay is hard to beat internationally). It's fun. It's interesting. It's beautiful. It's different. It's playable. One or more of these qualities is missing on many other TPCs.
The theme is a faux links with sod-wall-stacked Durabunkers mixed in with more traditional traps.
I love the variety of holes. It's not the usual tournament venue slog of too many long par 4s and too many mounds lining them. The three short par 4s in the first 11 holes are all great. The par 3s feature some sort of interaction with the three reservoirs on property.
Play it now in case it goes fully private once all the amenities like the clubhouse are fully built in the future.

Colorado's newest course impresses

I wasn't quite sure what to expect, topographically speaking, when on the way to TPC Colorado. Turns out, it is a pretty unique setting, on flatlands but overlooking some large reservoirs with mountains in the distance. It's part of a new residential community so there are some construction areas surrounding the course and at the entrance.

The clubhouse wasn't open yet but the practice area was and as you'd expect from a TPC quite expansive.

There is a seriously long golf hole here, 773 yards, that gets a lot of publicity. But it's actually a pretty playable course with wide fairways. The architect extends a carrot to the architecture aficionados with a Biarritz green, and there are three really fun short par 4s, including one that is Riviera-inspired while another feels like Florida wrapping around a big pond.

Another unique element are the two different styles of bunkers that juxtapose each other: sod-faces and splashier ones.

This will be a good high-end, semi-private addition to the metro Denver area. Now you have Castle Pines and Arrowhead to the south and TPC on the northern end near Berthoud.
