The Gold Course from Greg Mastriona Golf Courses at Hyland Hills is the only 18-hole course at the facility. Designed by Frank Hummel, the course opened in 1959 and used to include the 9 holes of the Blue Course as the front nine. Currently however, both the Gold and the Blue are separate courses. The landscape of the Gold is hilly and seven ponds create a beautiful atmosphere while also adding challenging water hazards to eleven holes. Although the entire course is scenic, the 12th hole is considered to have the most picturesque views. Its elevated tee offers gorgeous vistas of the majestic Rocky Mountains. Greg Mastriona Golf Courses at Hyland Hills is known not only for its gorgeous scenery, it has also received acclaim from golf publications such as Golf Digest.

Solid all around

Nice range, though would like to see more flags/targets to hit to. Golf course is interesting and fun. You have to think about every shot. Driver not needed often if you are a relatively long hitter. Not that the course is short, you are just better off placing the ball in the correct spots. Course is in good shape and was great value for the GolfNow hot deal that I got.

Decent Course - Better Options in Denver Available

Pros:

-Pace of play for an early afternoon tee time was fantastic

-Nice mix of holes

-Fairly challenging

Cons:

-Course condition was definitely below average compared to other similarly priced courses in the Denver Metro Area (Riverdale, Murphy Creek, etc) . The fairways need a fair amount of work.

-Greens were pretty slow/inconsistent

Bottom Line:

If the course was in better shape, I would definitely be back as the pace of play was fantastic for a Sunday afternoon. Not a bad deal for the price, but there's just too many courses in the metro area that are in much better shape to justify returning.

The Gold Course

Hyland Hills Gold course is a challenging, but doable course, even for shorter hitters. The greens were in excellent shape, especially given the extreme heat conditions in Colorado this summer. The fareways have not fared as well; they were in rough (no pun intended) shape in places. The grounds crew were out in force though sometimes not aware that golfers were coming towards them.

Classic design, excellent maintenance

Excellent course and value, classic design except for holes #17 & #18, where they appear to have run out of room. Also, some of the tee boxes were difficult to find -need more signs.

ok, nothing special

have played a lot of local courses this spring, and thanks to the heavy rains a month or so ago, most are in great shape. This one, not so much. It was only fair - greens so-so and fairways spotty - and combined with a laregly dull layout, the course is nothing to get excited about. Still, pace of play was great and the price was pretty good, so on balance, sure, check it out.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Everything was perfect until a worker in a golf cart pulled up to us in the 16th and said we needed to pick up our pace. We were on pace for a four hour round on a Sunday at a nicer course. That is expected. There were people in front of us but we were not trying to play too close behind them to keep pace. Other than that, great course conditions and a great round.

Great day to play.

Great weather that day. Calm and around 70 degrees. Course was in good shape.

No issues checking in. Staff was nice.

There were multiple grounds crew teams out working which we had to wait on for a couple of holes but no real problem - the crews had the course well maintained.

Have played this course many times and always enjoyed. Multiple options to play - the Gold course, the Blue course, and the Par 3 courses. The putting green and practice facilities are nice.

Also the club house is very nice to eat and drink.

Aerating Greens and fairways

The greens were just aerated so putting was horrible and one of the holes they were aerating the fairway and my ball disappeared in the plugs.

The tee boxes were in horrible shape - not because of early season brown grass but because of a lot of divots, etc.

First Time Playing

First time, won’t be last time.

First time playing the Gold Course (had previously only played the Blue). Both times I’ve been here the staff isn’t unfriendly but I don’t find them above and beyond friendly either. All good, I’m come for the golf. And the Gold Course did not disappoint! I really enjoyed the hole layouts, the epic mountain views, and the great condition of the course, especially the greens. I also love the driving range, practice green and chipping green with bunker. Really great all-around facility. Will be back again, multiple times.
