About

Holes 9
Type Public/Municipal
Par 34
Length 2983 yards
Slope 113
Rating 33.5

Located in Longmont, the nine-hole, municipal Sunset Golf Course is a great, affordable option for beginners and families. Opened in 1924, it is one of Colorado's oldest golf courses. Although experienced golfers may not find it challenging enough, the course provides an excellent spot to practice your short game and it is definitely one of the most scenic courses in the area with beautiful views of Long's Peak. The par-34 course covers 2,981 yards from its longest tees. The terrain of Sunset Golf Course is quite hilly and the tree-lined fairways are very narrow. No water hazards come into play but the course is well-bunkered. The signature hole is the par-4 fourth hole.

A hidden gem

Tucked into a quaint residential area with great Mountain Views. Half of a par 72 course, not a par 3 like you would expect. It’s not fancy but comfortable. Reasonable price. Well maintained. Good for husband/wife outing.

Best Couples Course in Colorado

Thank you City of Longmont for making available this incredibly beautiful Golf Course. The views of the Continental Divide and Foothills is fantastic! The course is well cared for, and the staff is the best of any course we've played. It's a wonderful course to invite another couple to play along with you, and enjoy your time together.

A Gem in Longmont

I play this course a lot--20 - 40 times a year--and always find in great shape. During the middle of the playing season it is often in superior shape compared to other course I might play in the Denver Metro Area. For me, this is a friendly place--great clubhouse environment--with so many locals in a great mood. It makes playing Sunset a joy.

I hope to play it 40 times this year!

Beautiful setting

Sunset golf course was in great shape on 9/16/19! I saw very few ball Marks’s on the greens- and they were fast ! The fairways were also in good shape, only filled a couple divots along the way. I’d say I go at lucky with the pace of play, 2 hours for 9.

A sunny day at Sunset

A hidden gem. One-half of an 18-hole course. Well maintained. Price
Is more the reasonable. My wife loves it. Friendly staff. Pace of play is good. No par 5’s but long par 4’s. Bring the driver. Two par 3’s. One you can
use a 3-metal; the other a raised Tee box with choice of two different greens. Great views of the front range. No super amenities but very comfortable. Swimming pool next door.

Gem found

Three of us journeyed an hour to get here after I read the reviews. Lots of my buddies had never heard of this course but they have heard of it now from me. Extremely friendly staff, beautiful views from the odd numbered tee boxes, and course in great shape. Well worth the hour travel time. Will be back.

Great course with spectacular views

The four of us are visiting from Texas and really enjoyed this beautiful little nine hole course. There were so many photo ops, it was hard to focus on golf. There were a few challenging holes, which made it a lot of fun. Hope to play here again when we come back in 4 or 5 weeks.

Great Muni Course

A jewel of a 9-hole city course. I recommend early tee times, as it gets crowded! Beautifully manicured and maintained. Staff is always easy going, and I love this place for an early morning walking round.
