About

Holes 18
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.

Ute Creek Review

This is a very nice course. Everyone was super friendly that I encountered on the links and the staff was as well. The views of the continental divide and Longs Peak are breathtaking.

However, the part that really stood out to me about Ute Creek, was how well it was maintained. The tee boxes. fairways and greens were all in outstanding condition.

Most importantly, we had a lot of fun. This was my first but certainly won't be my last time golfing at Ute Creek.

Nice course with a wide open layout. There is quite a bit of sand, but still pretty easy to manage. This course is a lot of fun!

Winter Season-Sahara Moisture

Basically no precipitation other than a micro Squall two days ago. The Superintendent is managing the course appropriately. Directing cart traffic to the rough and cart path to preserve the turf. Course is in excellent condition given the current conditions and weather. They don't give up much on rates. Just slightly over priced for the time of year.

Nice municipal course

Ute Creek is a great muni course, the best of the 3 city owned courses in Longmont. Some good long holes, fun par 4’s, enough sand and water to get your goat. Can be very busy at times so recommend booking tee times early online. Very pleasant staff.

Enjoyable course

This course is a fun course to play because it is fairly wide-open. The length of the course is what makes it more challenging for most people. It tends to be in good shape in the fairways, greens, and tee boxes. The pace of play can be slow on certain days but but for the most part you are be able to play in 4 to 4 1/2 hours. The 19th hole prices for beer could be cheaper or at least have a happy hour on certain days.

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.

Very nice Muni

Ute Creek is great from the super staff to the superb diversity of the holes.
Usually in very good condition.
An easy walk.
Keep the ball in the fairway and you'll do well. Find the rough or the boonies and it can be very challenging.
Pace-of-play is usually good, but if slow, chat with one of the marshalls.
Overall a fun course. We play there numerous times a year!

Great course. Open with alot of sand. Some wet, spongy spots. Overall fun time.
Took 4 1/2 hours. Followed a fivesome after teeing off a half hour late due to a tournament? No beverage /snack cart to be seen the entire round.

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.

Ute Creek

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.

First time playing in Colorado in a while and loved the greens and pace of play.
It also brought me back to my youth with the extra distance in the mile high city.
