About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 7007 yards
Slope 134
Rating 72.1

The Raccoon Creek Golf Course is a public, 18-hole golf course in Littleton. It covers 7,045 yards from its longest tees and plays to a par of 72. The course has some difficult elements, such as elevation changes, but it is still beginner-friendly. Water hazards come into play on seventeen holes. The most difficult hole of the course, one of the most difficult in Colorado according to the Colorado Golf Associates, is the par-3 17th hole. The hole runs alongside a creek, the creek that the course is named after, and requires a shot over a portion of it to a very well protected green.

Great course. Slow play.

Granted they had a frost delay, but seriously, it took over 6 hours to play 18 holes. Other than that it was pretty awesome.

Great day, slow play

Didn’t realize there was a tournament ahead of us when we booked but found out when we checked in. 11 holes took us almost 4.5hrs and once the tournament cleared out we finished the last holes in like 45min (which was awesome). Not much they could have done and we could have bailed if we had to but the weather was gorgeous and it felt great to not be indoors! Love the layout, lots of eye-tricks to keep you on your toes and the course Marchand were all really nice and helpful too. I’d go back to play there again but would still try to be on as early a tee time as possible to avoid pacing issues.

New Clubhouse, same great course

Had heard recent storms had taken down a number of trees, but property had recovered nicely, and there are now more sight lines and better views of some holes.

Course was in great condition as always.

Highly recommend the course as a good challenge and the new clubhouse and chef are top notch.

12.07 pm

When checked in golf shop person upset I got Green fees and cart rider for $25.00. Negative rather than say great deal glad to have you first time.

Then guy asked if I would share cart or have hand cart. I am 70 years old and said no. Other three turned out to be single golfers lot younger than me.

I can see share cart being married or immediate family. But you not set up for testing and you not adhering to social distancing.

So what is your policy in riding carts with VIRUS still so prevalent? If I book online you going to insist I share cart being 70 years old? I notice many rode carts by themselves.

Not for beginners !!

The review isn't focused on the clubhouse, amenities, starter or course condition. For them, they would easily get a 4 or 5 star rating.
The rating plummeted due to the
Gestopo veteran course marshal.
I had a foursome with my son, his girlfriend and a nephew. We had a slow twosome in front of us which was fine because my sons girlfriend and nephew were new to golf.
We were keeping up with the twosome in front of us but there was an experienced foursome playing relentlessly tight up from behind throughout the round which created a lot of anxiety to us all, especially the woman in the group who is new to golf.
The marshal must have been informed from the foursome behind us to get us to play quicker but I explained to him that we were keeping up the twosome in front of us and even if we let the foursome play through they too would be held up but he didn't care, he just kept hovering over our group causing even more stress and killing any fun we were expecting to have.
I felt so bad for my son's girlfriend, she was actually running to her next shot only making her play worse. I told her "there is no running in golf"at least 4 times but she was concerned with being harassed by the marshal and the foursome behind us.
All along the marshal wasn't pressing the old guys in front of us, just our group. In the end he left us alone for the last 4 holes to make it a little relaxing but by that time we would just as well quit if we were close to the clubhouse.
This course is good for the old consistent player or better especially if they are all teeing off from the same tee box.
This course is not good for the promotion of new players or those aren't good yet and have to both tee from the back tee boxes and then move to women's. If my situation isn't your concern then you would probably enjoy playing here. Unfortunately for me and the rest of my group, we didn't get to have such an experience we were all looking forward to having.
