Type Private
Sanctuary in Sedalia, which is located just south of Denver, is a beautifully preserved ecosystem as well as an 18-hole, private course. It serves as a refuge for wildlife, native plants, and also golfers looking for a peaceful game of golf. The golf course is nestled in the foothills of the Rockies and the wildlife includes black bears, coyotes, deer, elk, and many more. In its commitment to preserving the natural terrain and wildlife, the Sanctuary limits the golf course to only 9,000 rounds per year and it is invite only. The exclusivity is understandable though since the golf course offers not only beautiful views but also a challenging and fun game of golf. The greens are large and undulating and play fast. The fairways are narrow and surrounded by trees. The Sanctuary's signature hole is the first, which is a lengthy par-5 with a 250-foot drop off the tee.

Bucket list course.

There's not much to say that hasn't been said already. If you know about this course, you know that it's incredible. The only down side is how hard it is to get a tee time. I played in the Colorado Golf HOF charity shamble, and it's still the most I've ever paid for a round of golf. If money were no object I'd buy one of the charity auction tee times and play it again in a heart beat.
