About

Type Public/Municipal
Par 72
Length 7198 yards
Slope 135
Rating 73.6

Formerly a cornfield, Robert Trent Jones Jr. utilized the natural area and the import of over 600,000 cubic yards of dirt to create the challenging Ute Creek Golf Course. The championship course has a traditional links-style layout that is said to challenge even the most avid of golfers. The public, 18-hole golf course offers 7,167 yards from its longest tees, playing to a par of 72. It features several water hazards, especially on the back nine holes, with five lakes situated on the course and two streams that wind through it. Ute Creek Golf Course's well-bunkered greens and undulating, multi-level fairways provide more interesting elements to the game.

Could have been 5 Stars

Love this course and the staff is generally awesome; however it is frustrating when the ranger pushes to have the carts in before daylight. If I am going to pay to play on a course, I expect to be able to try and get my full round in within reason, especially in the short days of early winter.

Best of Longmont

Ute Creek is the premier city course in Longmont. It's long but narrow with demanding greens that are protected by bunkers. Accuracy is a premium. Several holes have ponds and cattail marshes that steal shots if played poorly.

Great Course But Fix Hole gadget

I love Ute Creek. No trees to speak of, so a linksy feel, with lots of fairway bunkers, but with shallow lips. One of my go-to courses.

But the plastic polypipe gadgets they've put in the holes (for COVID) are TERRIBLE. They're far too thick and the ball barely can drop into the hole (they are actually in violation of the USGA Rules for thickness of the flagstick!). Check out Walnut Creek or Indian Peaks for the RIGHT way to do it, with a thinner wire mechanism. (I've told Denny about this, but no change yet). This can't cost much, guys.

Pace of play

Pace is horrible and we play ute quite often and it never changes. You have a group of 4 then a couple then another group of 4 then maybe a trio then a couple. - why not make it all a 4 person to keep the pace. Then we had people another 4 some jump around and get in front of us. We’ve complained to Marshall but all he did was go talk to them. Golf etiquette is so important - we’ve played ute on weekends n during the week n the pace is rated a 0 - There are other golf courses around that we choose to play - thank you n hope you can look into this

Find another course

This golf course used to be the crown jewel of Longmont. The way it is currently, the city of Longmont should be embarrassed. I would guess at least 90% of the sand traps - and there are a lot of them - are being watered. The bottom of the traps are a mud pit in the morning and they remain wet all day. And the ones that are dry have very little sand in them. It ruined my experience yesterday. If they don't care enough about aiming the sprinklers appropriately, why should anyone bother with this course ever again?

There are plenty of other courses in surrounding municipalities. I would suggest any of them over this one.

Excellent*

Loved this course. More par 3s and 5s than most courses I play which was good for something different. The greens appeared to have been recently aerated and sanded. The asterisk is because the sand was pretty heavy in some spots and adversely affected putting a bit, but I would play here again any time, sanded greens or not. (To be fair, there very well may have been an aeration notice that I missed when I booked.)
