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. It is a popular choice since it accommodates all skill levels but also provides adequate challenges. The course has fast greens and narrow, tree-lined fairways. Water hazards and bunkers come into play on several of the holes. In addition to the excellent game it provides, the course also has a reputation for being in excellent condition. Flatirons Country Club has practice facilities including a practice green and chipping area as well as an on-site instructor and pro shop.

Okay for the money.

First let me start with my tee time was 11:50 booked through GolfNow and I found out that when I got to the tee box 4 other players had the same tee time. Not sure who screwed that’s up.. I’m lucky there was a twosome in front of me and I just paired up with them.Otherwise the course was good, not very challenging at all. The holes just go back and forth and so one for the whole course. The only challenges would be the fairways are lined with huge trees and you need to hit very straight!!

Good straightforward course in good winter conditions

The golfnow hot deal was super tempting like a wiggly worm to a fish, and I bit. The day was supposed to be quite chilly, but it was warm enough that quite a few of us wandered to play. More walked than rode, nice!

The course had some small amounts of snow, maybe slightly covering one green, which really only made a few tee boxes challenging and putting in tees into the ground the crux for the day.

The course was in quite good shape. The range is mats only. The greens are pretty firm, so bump and run often was easier than trying to get one to stick. Still, they're fairly flat, so speed control is the name of the game here.The greens were rolling quite well, especially given the winter date. The geese have largely left the course alone. The fairways have a few sticks, but there are hardly any fall leaves. Thanks! The trees still require you to shape your shots, especially if you play aggressively.

The folks here are super friendly, perhaps the nicest part of the day!

Had to Go Back Again

Played my second round this week while on vacation in Boulder. Beat the rain and snow today and had one of my best rounds of the season. Thanks again to a great and well operated golf course. Can’t wait to come back in the spring. Headed back to winter in Canada in a couple of days. Don’t miss the opportunity to play this course if you are in Boulder.

Good day out, good course to walk, very friendly staff

We were looking for a nice course to be able to play and walk. Flatirons is a fairly short course 6967y that is very walkable. This feels like a course with a higher percentage of walkers. There are shorter tees, like the green tees at 4731y, so it's nice for those wanting less distance requirements or more birdie opportunities. We found a time mutually convenient at a reasonable rate. The staff person was super friendly and welcoming. He offered a bucket of rangeballs, since we weren't using a cart. That was really nice!

The round went fairly well, although the light underbelly of some of the leaves, even though fairly blown off by the groundskeepers, still made it hard to find some slightly off track shots like just left of #11's green, short & left of #15's green, and short & left of #18's green. Penalty strokes are unpleasant for balls you see land and bounce. Oh well, I guess you got to use brighter colored balls if accuracy is not a strength.

The greens were slightly bumpy, but given it's mid-Nov., you can't really complain. The fairways are fairly tight right now. The rough is short. The grounds crew seemed to take away some of the tee box markers partway through the course. Winter preparation?

The super friendly staff person even came out of the pro shop and thanked us for playing. That was above & beyond.

Very Enjoyable Fall Golf Day

While visiting family in Boulder, this Canadian golfer could not resist a beautiful fall day of golf on this well maintained and challenging course. The greens were quick and required precise alignment to sink your putts.
The staff are always friendly and helpful. I will continue making this regular stop when in the area.i would highly recommend playing this golf course .

Great Course

This was the first time I have played the course and was very impressed with the condition of the course but the greens they were just awesome perfect, I made everything inside of 15 feet they putt true. Fairways are tight you have to hit it straight or you in the trees on every hole. This course will challenge your mid iron play.

Love the Vibe!!

Friendliest staff of any course I played all summer (including The Broadmoar, Indian Peaks, Coal Creak, Fossil Trace, Eagle Trace...”

Course was in fantastic condition! Bunkers were fluffy and picturesque, greens were fast and tightly mown. no leaves on the greens and it is October! Wow! Fairways also well kept. Just a joy of a course to play! Good job grounds crew!!!

The only thing to know is the range balls are limited distance and you always warm up on matts...That and the club house bathrooms are something out of a county fair ,but other than that love the place.

Just has a good vibe! You know you are in the right place when you walk up and the restaurant is named the Sand Wedge!

The staff was super friendly and that is just as important to me as course conditions these days!

Thanks Flatirons, you may be my new favorite haunt!

Great Track - Great Value!

The course website doesn’t do it justice. Beautiful course with views of the beautiful Flatiron Mountains dusted with remnants of snow from last winter. Super nice Cobra rental clubs awaited us as well as a nice large range to get loose before the round. Scenic course layout with a stream running along certain holes and small lakes give the course nice Colorado aesthetics, not too challenging but in excellent condition. Conveniently located about 5min from downtown Boulder! Can’t wait to get back!

Play Here

My son and I played here while visiting my daughter from way out of town and I must say this is a first rare course with an even better staff. We will play here again and encourage anyone to give it a try. You won’t be disappointed. Oh and my score was only decent so I’m not sugarcoating it.

Great track

Pace of play was a little slow. Maybe start groups.15 minutes between tee times instead of 10?

I always like playing this course because it has holes with trees. It makes it a little more challenging over a course Ike Coyote Creek or Colorado National.

Unluckily, we were forced off course by heavy rain and lightning. We are hoping for Rain Checks from GolfNow.

Fun day, course is coming into spring!

This was a GolfPass round (pretty sweet!) + 9 holes for us, because it was so efficient. The course just melted out and opened that day or the afternoon prior, so given that, it was in pretty darn good shape.

The staff was super friendly, funny we had played 9 holes with the assistant pro, Bayrod, a pretty talented player, at a course nearby recently, and he was there offering to do a lesson in the future. The groundskeepers were cleaning it quite nicely, we just had a bomb cyclone 5 days ago!

This 1938 built course plays fairly straightforward, and it was even starting to green a smidge. There were a few (2-3) fairways that were pretty soft (like #2) where you might have to keep an close eye on your drive to find it plugged and nearly buried in the fairway and be cautious with a cart. The gentleman behind us found 3 other plugged drives but not his! The greens were in pretty good shape, again given the recent weather. The course played pretty efficiently, ~1:45-1:50/9 walking, there's little elevation change. A few holes were a course management challenge like the tee shots on #6, 9, 11, and 14 to avoid the water based on your carry distances. It's better to be long than short on #11. Another interesting thing, this course only has 2 par 5 holes, and it's a par 70 with a rating of 72 from the black tees,(6967y). At the same time, there are the green tees at 4731y (61.8/102 & 66.2/119) that may suit those just getting into the game, ladies wanting less stress, shorter hitters, etc.

This is a very reasonable course for all sorts of golfers to enjoy.
