About

Holes 9
Par 34
Length 2983
Slope 113
Rating 33.5
Type Public/Municipal
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 fun course on a small hill. There's a community pool there if you need to cool off after your round.

Good place for a relaxing round.

Always a fun round here, if you enjoy a relaxed round of golf and scenic views this is it. Set on a hillside beautiful mountain views. The course is older so the trees are big and the grass is thick. Slope for difficulty and the greens never roll the way you think they do.

If you are looking for a fast pace, look elsewhere. Not always slow, but most of the time it's not fast.

OLD SCHOOL CHALLENGING

Yardage is short, but as most old school coursers, course management is needed to score well. fairways and greens are awesome for the price of play.

A nice course at a Hot Deal rate

This course was a fine course to play, but we happened to play early in the season and the greens had just been aerated. Despite the less than optimal geeens, I was able to sink some fairly long putts with break to them.

Fun and Unique Course

This was the 3rd time within the past six months I've driven North from the Denver area to play the unique 9 hole course in the heart of Longmont. The staff are all very friendly, the 3000 yard layout is actually challenging, and the golfers I've been paired with on each visit have been laid back-back...which makes for an enjoyable golfing experience.

What makes this course challenging (at least for me, a bogey golfer) is that most fairways are relatively tight, and the greens fairly small (although without much undulations).

Through Golf Now I've gotten a great rate each time I've played, but have determined that isn't necessary for me to continue make the drive to play this fun, unique course.
