Doesnt hold the value

Could have been better. None of the issues were fault of the staff or anything, probably more so fall on management. With all the remodel and construction going on, the course itself didn’t hold the same value as when I played there last summer.

The new clubhouse is very nice however condition of the course is obviously suffering as to be expected. A lot of the rough was overgrown making balls fairly tough too find in places they didn’t need to be. Some of the bunkers were marked ground under repair due to lack of maintenance l. They could address about twice the number they had.

Staff was extremely kind and friendly, just given the overall condition of the facility, the course isn’t holding the value to justify the rates. It certainly appears that after rhey finish the work the property will return to fantastic condition, just seems that one can can find better value even just in the southwest area of town.

3 hours for 9 holes!!

Nice new clubhouse and a scenic course. But my god , so slow. And no rangers to enforce the pace of play

It took 3 hours to play 9 holes. Never saw a ranger the entire time and the beverage cart just once.

The course was in good shape and I would have loved to play all 18 but it was not fun to wait on every hole. I wasted $67 on 9 holes

Great course if you can tee off early

First time playing this course and all the reviews I read prior mentioned pace of play as an issue. I booked a 6am tee time to ensure I didn't run into a pace of place problem and could see as we finished around 10:20am that the course was filled up and pace of play would have been an issue.

Layout is awesome, fairways were in great shape and rough is somewhat penalizing. Greens looked great, but needs to be cut and rolled. They were rather slow for looking so smooth. Only complain about the course was green speeds.

Just not up to snuff

This course is fun, but no where near the value of $75 riding 18 holes. This course feels, but more importantly plays, like an executive course. Id be fine paying $50 for 18 riding. I will say this, though the course was in rough shape, the greens were great. Thumbs up for that, but I was disappointed.

Day At Raccoon Creek

Course has challenging distances for long and short hitters. Long shots may go off the fairways and present a difficult second shot. Short shots may leave too much a distance to the green on the second shot. It is a great course.

Awesome staff members

Very friendly staff. Fun course to play. Even tho in the city limits very little road noise at all. Tea boxes are a bit uneven and bumpy, but overall a great place to play

Nice Day in Littleton, CO

Raccoon is one of the loveliest and well laid out golf courses to play on. Couple that with he Denver area weather of sunshine and cool weather, one would think it is Paradise.

Laid out to walk or ride, the different tee boxes will challenge and the par-3s are gorgeous.

Horrible pace

The course is gorgeous. However, the pace of play is horrendous. We normally play 36 in 5.5 hours. This course took 5.5 hours to play 18, after being promised they could get us out for another 9. Unacceptable. No marshall. Definitely not coming back, if it was a weekend round I would understand but on a Wednesday??? Come on.

Pace of play

It could just be a one time deal, but we didn't finish our round due to the pace of play. Our two some and another couple of gentlemen called it at hole 15 after 5 hours of play. Great layout, but stop and go kinda takes the wind out of your sails at each hole.
