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.

Course plays like an old friend

I play Sunset a lot--I've never been disappointed. The course is consistently in excellent shape. This year early, they had to work on the greens and the staff really took care of it. Now, having played recently, everything is tip-top. I understand that this year they are having lots of players playing and that has created some slow play, but generally I can play 9 holes in 1:45 - 50 minutes (and I walk). For me, I'm about a 18 handicap, the course offers enough challenge. I've had some good rounds, but then there have been some sneaky poor rounds. I can't complain. I enjoy Sunset like I enjoy an old friend.

Everything is good except other players

The only issues that I had were caused by other players. The group in front of us refused to let us play through when they had 4, we had 2, and they were taking way too long on each hole. The group behind us almost hit us two times because they wouldn’t wait for us to hit our second shots before they teed off. The course and the staff were great and I would recommend this course to anyone who wants a decent 9 holes that doesn’t cost a lot of money.

Fun little course, easy to play

This was my first time at Sunset, however, I'll be back because of the good conditions and course layout. For a beginner or someone looking for a laid back course layout, this is a pretty ideal course. The greens roll great. Pace of play was on point.
