Legendary golf architect Pete Dye designed the 18-hole, private course at Plum Creek Golf and Country Club, located in Castle Rock. Opened in 1984, the golf course features 7,044 yards of golf from its championship tees, playing to a par of 72. Dye included various different challenges in this golf course, causing some locals to say that it possesses some of the most difficult holes in the state. The hilly terrain of the well-bunkered course causes many uneven lies. Water hazards also come into play on some holes. Plum Creek Golf and Country Club boasts beautiful views of Castle Rock and the Rockies.

Nice course, in ok shape but the facilities are really run down. Trash cans overflowing, concrete cracked and broken, no baskets by the range ball machine. Range balls very old, driving range poor condition. The course is nice however but not worth the 79 dollars. Won't be back but hopefully someone will recue this nice course.

This course had no bathrooms open on the course and the bathrooms inside the club house were being worked on. After nine holes we asked that they open the restrooms on back but they didn't. In the cold wind we needed the restrooms and were very upset that they felt that convenience was not a necessity. We asked for a discount based on their problems. The manager said to give us our money back. They said they were going to do that but they did not give us any discount for the terrible condition.

Facilities are in need of some tlc. The menu was limited. The golf course is in great shape. Good greens and fairways. It appears this place is continuing to struggle but the course has the goods. They switched the 9's a couple of years ago. 6,7,8 and 9 are the jewels of the course. Pete Dye at it best flanking water railroad ties and tough. Played with two Air Force pilots and my son. If these guys are protecting us we are in good hands.

All in all a very good experience. Have played this course when their conditions have been excellent to very poor. Never know what to expect. Greens were in excellent condition, however, typical public course, no one cares to repair their ball marks. Fairways grass conditions were below average, fairly thin.<br/> My biggest disappointment since I played last, they changed the course layout switching the front and back around. Plum uses to have one the best four finishing holes in the Denver area...not anymore.

Plum Creek is a Pete Dye design ex-TPC course that seems to be in financial trouble. Clubhouse, parking lot, cart paths looking a mite shabby, hot dog for lunch, pro shop has little merchandise, has that sort of we're going to close down for good any second now look. But the course is in great shape. Greens, tees, traps and fairways couldn't be better. Challenging layout. Only course negative is that on some holes you're playing down rows of townhomes scant yards from the fairway. On a couple of the tees, you could reach onto a patio grill and grab a burger. But, hey, a Dye design for $45? I recommend you play the course, and don't look at anything else.

The course was in good shape and was well maintained but there were some basic player features missing that shouldn't have been at $70/per player. There was no map of the course nor pin placement display. There were no ball washers or rather I never saw any. Overall, the course is nice and a decent challenge but the staff was nowhere to be found. I waited in the pro-shop for a good ten minutes before being attended to. They were only offering hotdogs for food. Overall this course is fun but overpriced for lack of service.

Plum Creek has been falling apart in recent years, mostly infrastructure then the course wasn't getting enough water. Sad to see for a Pete Dye course. IT appears they are saving it. I understand it is in bankruptcy, but there is a plan to restore the course with some development that would affect one hole and the driving range area. They were working on the cart paths when we played 8/27, so while there is some disruption now, I'm glad to know this track will survive. There is also new management during the bankruptcy, and they seem more professional than the previous staff who were at times surly. #10 is now #1, so that's good. The finishing holes were pretty rough, now you can play them while you're still fresh!!!

Golf now booked multiple groups for our tee time, and never booked any of the times with the course. Kudos to the staff for working with a difficult situation and getting everyone taken care of. The course is great and very difficult. It was a TPC course after all. The second tees are like the tips at most courses.

Though this is an excellent Pete Dye layout, due to financial issues, this clubs facilities have been steadily deteriorating over the past few years. This includes the clubhouse, driving range, the many railroad tie structures, concrete cart paths. and more. The driving range balls were old, unwashed, and expensive. there were few yardage markers, (a few numbers on sprinkler heads and 150 poles in center of fairways) nor laser reflectors (tape or glass inserts on the flagsticks) and no hole depictions on the scorecard or on signs at the tees. On the plus side, the fairways and greens were in fairly good shape and the diabolicalness of the layout reamin

Despite the several potholes driving into the facility, the course was in great shape, unfortunately their was no Marshall to keep pace of play up which ruined the experience! Great design and layout, but a 5 hour round is outrageous! Sorry don't know if I will play this course again.

The course itself is in excellent shape. The layout is challenging and the rough is thick. The greens were in excellent shape. I played on a Friday morning and the course was not busy at all. I would have to say this is one of the best values in the Denver area for the money.
