The golf course at Flatirons Country Club has a long and unique history, undergoing several name changes, renovations, and even a location change since its conception in 1938.

Perfect day

I've played this course a million times. Got the Hot Deal today and alone on the course. No leaves yet. Let us out early and played in under 3 hours. Hard to believe. Thank you kid at desk as Mr. grumpy who usually works would not have been so nice.

Solid municipal course

Played on a Monday and got right out. Finished round in 3 hours. Course is in good condition. Straight forward layout. Not much sand but some water. Very much a back and forth layout. Greens were in nice condition but too wet in morning to really judge speed. All in a very solid course that I would probably will play again.

Greens, ball marks

Over all had a great day golfing, was fun only thing I can complain is the ball marks on the greens. I had a true roll then the ball marks way too many on every green.

No marshall, beverage cart saw it one time.

Nice course next time in Boulder will play it again.

Please repair your Ball marks

Overall this was a fun day, Staff were very friendly made very good accommodations, the.rough challenges you to a good ball strike which I thought was perfect height. The greens were grabbing your shots, with a consistent roll.

Golfers need to fix their ball marks, PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE, REPAIR YOUR BALL MARKS..

TRees came into play all day. Par 3 were challenging

Had fun recommended to play in early Saturday

Nice course.

Besides the green being plugged and sanded, the flat layout and easy movement from tee to tee is fun for novice golfer.

Average at Best

Granted it was Saturday mid-Day but I was appalled at the service. No carts until well after our tee time. Staff was unconcerned and acted put out that we actually expressed consensus thT out tee time was 30 minutes late and we got a cart as we were finally walking to the tee. The pace was horrible and never saw a Marshall once in the 5. Plus hour round.

The course itself is ok, flat and no real pizazz. No real reason to return for that cost.

The corse is very nice and convenient if you live in boulder but it is a bit overpriced especially for the twilight tee times. They seem to have a hard time maticing golf now tee times with what is actually going on at the corse.

Colorado golf for Michigander.

Course was in very good condition throughout.

Tees for all ability levels.

Pretty flat course for being close to the mountains.

Will play here again sometime with hot deal.

Review from May 27, 2018

the course was in great shape. I think they need to update their course yardages to hazards, water, etc. None of the fairway bunker distances from the tee boxes matched what my Garmin GPS device showed.

Great course for out of towners

Great course. I recommend this course for decent players. Super friendly staff. They was running no carts and they switched our tee time for the next day to accommodate us bc we was out of town and didn’t was to walk. Saved us hassle and money.

Highly recommended.

The course is nice flat with a lot of trees. I will play it again when the trees are full and hopefully the green will be in better shape

Great Value with a Convenient Location in the Heart of Boulder

I played this course for the first time in April, and was pleasantly surprised to find great conditions from tee to green for a great value. Friendly staff and just a few minutes from downtown Boulder. The par 70 has a very similar hole design for several of its par 4's, but the course is challenging enough to keep things interesting. Would highly recommend as one of the best value courses in the area.

Late fall golf in Colorado

When the opportunity to play a round of golf at the end of November with 70 degree temperatures and little to no wind in Boulder you take it. The course was in average condition with a few of the teeing grounds netted for the rest of the season but the greens were in very good condition given the time of year and were lightning fast, but true. The course was full but the pace of play was good, taking slightly over 4 hours to complete 18 holes.

Steer clear of this course

Probably the biggest let downs I’ve ever had for a golf course. The staff was not friendly, it took us 30 minutes to get to the second tee box, and there was zero oversight on any pace of play or other golfers. I’m not one to go out of my way to point it all out but if I can save one more person from wasting their time i’m happy to do so. Also, the course is nothing special. Take your money elsewhere.
