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.

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.

Best shale ever

Small but not as small as it looks. Driver on 6 of the 9 holes. One long par 3. Overall exactly half of an 18-hole course. Great fairways. Easy rough. Greens were excellent. The best I’ve seen it in two years. Worth the drive and priced right.

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!
