This course is a true panoramic paradise and a “must play” course if you are in the Denver area. Large, red sandstone rock formations form the spectacular scenery of this par 70 course. The course is quite hilly, the greens are deceptively fast and the narrow fairways which are bordered by jagged rock formations allow for little margins of error. Look out for white-tailed deers that often wander on the course for a curious look.
