About

Type Public/Municipal
Par 72
Length 7167 yards
Slope 132
Rating 73.3

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.

great layout and conditions, esp for November

course is always interesting and in good shape. wasn't sure that would be true in the CO "offseason", but all good.. Staff is always helpful and friendly too. Only issue is the pace of play, but that's at least partly because it's challenging - some holes really bog down as players flounder.

Bring several balls you may need them.

Course was in good condition although there were a few damp spots on some fairways. Whilst the fairways are reasonably generous, there are plenty of large bunkers both on the fairways and in front of the greens to catch your ball, they certainly did mine. The water hazards are also in play in a number of holes.

Despite the above it was a fine weather day to play golf and pace of play was good, we were a 3 ball and played the front 9 in 2 hours, and although the back 9 was slower overall pace was reasonable.

On the day we played the greens were fast, particularly on downhill putts, which I had a lot of.

We were on vacation from the UK, and would recommend to friends.

First time playing the course, very nice practice facility. Tees, fairways, bunkers and greens were all in good to great shape. Good mix of long and short holes.Speed of greens was average. Cart person came by often, saw one marshall during the round. Playing again this week. My average score is 80-82 and I shot 82 with 3 doubles.

Terrific Value good conditions.

First time playing in Colorado in a while and loved the greens and pace of play.

Nice course for the money

My son and I played this course on a warm August Sunday. My son is new to golf, and I only play about 3-4 rounds per year. There is a nice selection of tee boxes to choose from based on your skill level. We played with another twosome who were a bit better than we were, so they played a bit further back. The course itself was in very good shape for August and on the weekend. Pace of play was good, and there were rangers around to keep folks moving along without feeling rushed.
Drink carts were available (and used) and the staff was very pleasant.
I would definitely go back to Ute Creek. For the money, it is a very nice course for the outskirts of Denver. There are some challenging holes, but most of them are fairly open fairways, so if you keep it fair, you should have a good round.

Played with a friend, it was very challenging and lots of trouble, but my friend shot very well.

Greens rolled true, I would recommend to others.

Excellent challenge/ value

Great layout with 5 different t boxes!
I turned 76 last month and the newly added white tees were a perfect fit for my game——- between the 5500 red tees and the 6100 blue tees , although not on the scorecard, it was a good challenge!
Only downside was the condition of most sand traps, due to recent rainfall , more like mud traps
