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.

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.

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.
