The golf course at Indian Peaks Golf Club is an 18-hole, public course in Lafayette that offers several interesting challenges. The course is 7,083 yards from its longest tees with a par of 72. Hale Irwin designed the course, which opened in 1993. It boasts more than 80 bunkers while two creeks, and six lakes create water hazards that come into play on several holes. There are also beautiful views of the mountains, especially on the last hole. Indian Peaks Golf Club's seventh hole is a particularly challenging hole in that trees protect the green and also a creek runs through the fairway.

I play here now and then and use the practice facilities frequently because I live close. Like a lot of other people I tend to feel it's overpriced for what it is. Today on the putting green may have been my last straw though. I had to share the green with a real jerk who showed up with his cell phone on his ear and carried on a heated and profane conversation for over an hour. I don't care if the course is public, that sort of behavior isn't acceptable on ANY golf course. Indian Peaks needs signage outlining rules against things like that. They charge country club for a day rates and allow that sort of stuff to go on, which doesn't add up. Play somewhere else.

I used to play the course a lot about 15 years ago as I worked near by. I play it again last weekend and pleasantly surprised how gracefully the course has matured! A mix of watery hazards, tree-lined fairways and wicked short par 4 that is the 7th hole is inviting and fun! -- Allows singles tee times and a definite add to my rotation.

To charge full summer rates on October 31st is bad enough, but to do it after they punched the greens is absurd.

While the tee boxes and fairways were nice, the greens were extremely bumpy and inexplicably fast, leading to a round where skill flew out the window and randomness took over.

This is a delightful golf course which could be exceptional. I never appreciate paying full price to play a course with aerated, sandy greens. I know they're trying to make money, but when a staff does this is makes me mad. Just be honest folks; that goes a long way in the golfing world.<br/> The layout is very good, making you think your way through. Plenty of sand and water, and only one horribly designed hole (the 7th) with a huge oak tree blocking all but pinpoint tee shots. I was hoping the flood would make it fall down, but no such luck.<br/> When the greens are good, they're really good. The fairways are very nice, and the course is well-maintained. Still, it's only worth the money if I can find a GolfNow deal.

Indian Peaks is a good course. Unfortunately they sand the greens for the winter. They dont mention that in the Golfnow listing. The course is overpriced for the area, but must get enough people to support it.

Very fun and moderately challenging course. I only got to play the back nine since the front nine was closed for maintenance. For some reason they didn't have tee boxes that day so I had to use my iphone golf app to figure out where to tee from. Played on a monday and it was pretty much wide open. Its a beautiful course and well maintained and I would definitely come back an play the full 18.

I always enjoy playing Indian Peaks. Even in the rain on a day in the 30's! Course is in great shape and is a challenging layout for golfers of any skill level. Played in under 3 1/2 hours, but we were the only idiots out there. Got a great special on GolfNow. I think the usual fees are a bit steep, otherwise I would play here more.

We were very impressed with Indian Peak. A great combination of challenge, beauty and quality. A couple of holes are a bit quirky (e.g. 90 degree dogleg right with a 190 yard tee shot landing area that you'd better not miss), but overall a very nice experience.

This course is a very scenic and challenging course. The course is well laid out and easy to get around. There are enough water hazards and sand traps strategically placed to require playing each hole with a plan. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

This is the perfect course to test the skill level of all players. The variety of Tees is perfect and the penalties are not severe for being slightly off line. There is value in knowing where to miss shots and that the greens have enough slope to play away from certain areas. I always enjoy this course since playing well is rewarded with no gimicks. Pace of play is a problem on busy times, but that is just the nature of a public, popular course. Relax and enjoy the day!

Sometimes we revisit a course that we enjoyed and are disappointed. This was not the case with Indian Peaks. We revisited Boulder in July this year and I recommended this course to a friend from California.<br/> We were enthralled with the course, the fairways were in fab condition, the rough was thick and to be avoided. The greens were pristine and the ball ran true..missed putts were down to misreads.<br/> We enjoyed the course so much that I played it again on 29th of July with my wife. She enjoyed it but felt that it was quite long.<br/> It is on my list to visit again on our next visit.
