The South Suburban Golf Course facility offers two municipal courses, one that is nine holes and another that is 18 holes. The Nine Hole Course is one of several courses in Colorado designed by famed golf architect Richard Phelps. The par-3 course offers 1,270 yards of golf. Although it is a short course, it does have some challenging features. Shot accuracy is required since water hazards come into play on many of the holes. Although they are public courses, the South Suburban facility offers the amenities of a private course. There is a restaurant, a pro shop, and even an on-site teaching pro.

If you think you're putting well, go play south suburban! Toughest greens in the metro area if not the state. Good condition for the time of year. Very friendly staff and AWESOME new clubhouse!! It's a must play!

This has been on my list to play for a bit. The greens have a reputation for being the primary defenses of the course. Sure enough, this proved accurate. One of the staff told me the greens here are rated the 2nd hardest in the state, second to Bear Dance.

Perhaps the iffy forecast and it being a Monday early in the spring led to a hard-to-turn-down price that got me out in the playable weather window. The large bucket for the range turned out to be a lot of golfballs to warm-up with, more than I could use, so a couple young golfers out for their first golfing experience got a bonus. I probably should have warmed-up with more significant putting given it was my first time here. Playing these fairly sloped greens really emphasizes trying to stay below the hole, if at all possible. Still, it's a fair challenge, at least at this time of the year.

The length at 6683 yards max (5328 min) and the forgiving layout/conditions in early spring probably explains some of the popularity among us average-ish golfers. Deals tend to get gobbled up here. The course was in pretty good shape despite the really dry winter we've had. FWIW, there is a par 3 course to add a few more holes to those who didn't get their fill with 18. Also, this course is quite walkable, <4 hours at a fairly leisurely pace.

The clubhouse renovations looks great. Nice job.

It's worth returning here.

The course overall is very fast, and the practice putting area is really fast. The course greens were not as fast but very fast with lots of slope. This makes for cautious and careful puts, but I really enjoy that more than large flat surfaces. I played in the afternoon and it was windy for a while on the front, then the pace of play picked up on the back and the wind stopped. A great day golfing.

Fun to play but greens are extremely sloped and can ruin a good round. I’m surprised something hasn’t already been done to try and flatten the greens.

It’s been a few years since I’ve played SS. The new layout works (front & back nine are flipped, although 9 & 18 haven’t change). The new clubhouse is really nice. The only negative (which has always been the case) are a couple “unfair greens”. If I hit a 30’ putt it shouldn’t roll back to me. They REALLY need to make the greens on holes 5 and 13 two tiered, there’s just too much slope.

This course is top 10 layout of public courses in the metro area. But the greens are tough. Several have ridiculous undulations and pin placement is a key.

The greens thanks to temps in the 20's at night are starting to go onto winter mode. So the challenge gets better.

Rest of course is still in excellent condition and new rebuild of clubhouse and restaurant is great.

Staff is friendly and over all experience is always top of the list!

We love this course and play it often. The only problem was the lack of clean carts when we checked in. A staff person immediately found one for us and brought it to my car. The greens are always fast and this week rather uneven and bumpy due to aeration. We ha2 d to cancel two of our foursome and South Suburban was great about it. My issue is with GolfNow and how they messed up my fees - got to pay double the greens fees for 2 golfers. Now I have to straighten that out.

This is a challenging but fun course that is good a few times a year when a deal shows up. Pace can be a bit of a problem at times, esp mid week when it seems that everyone that is retired in a 5 mile radius shows up but, today it was good. The greens here are fast and if you do not place your approach shot well, look out and it becomes an easy 3 putt each time. It is a good layout and the clubhouse is brand new....but full disclosure, I liked the old timey clubhouse of before much better, I am just old school

South Suburban is a fun track, but is a little short. The greens are the course's protection and they are running a little slower than usual. This course is worth it at the discounted Golf Now price, their rack rate is WAY too high for what you get though.

It's been this way for years as far as the slopes on the greens. In addition the pin placements in some cases are obscured and unfair! Course is in good shape but this definitely affects pace of play. Golf is tricky enough without the difficulty of sloped greens and side hill pins. Clubhouse under construction so porta pottys are you only option, they have changed holes around so without signs you wouldn't know where to go.

I arrived at the course early, after driving an hour, in order to properly warmup for my round. When I checked in, I was not informed I would be required to share my cart with a stranger, who happened to be a hacker. After warming up for an hour, I stepped up to the first tee box and at that time I was blindsided and told I would be sharing my cart. I'm a single number handicap who played over 90 rounds this year, and I expect the opportunity to enjoy my round of golf, but when you pair another golfer (typically a lousy one) in the same cart with me, most of the round is spent zigzagging around the golf course after every lousy shot the stranger they stuck in my cart makes. This not only slows down pace of play, but create an extremely frustrating day of golf.

What a wasted Friday afternoon, and a totally unenjoyable and unpleasant experience. Like I said, I play upward of 100 rounds a season, and come into contact with hundreds of players all over Colorado, I can assure you I will spread the word of your senseless and frustrating policy.
