As a member of this club I decided to update my review from 2010 in order to hopefully give potential guests a better idea of what the course is currently like. Overall, the club and course have improved a lot over the past 6 years. You really wouldn't expect to see a course this lush in such an arid part of the country and the new course superintendent is doing an outstanding job with all aspects of the playing area. There is also a new pro and new owners of the club. While it hasn't been formalized as yet, the owners are expecting to announce a 4-year plan of major upgrades to the golf course and part of it has already started with a new par 3 practice area. There are 27 holes on the course and I personally prefer the North and West 9's, although the view on 7 south is a par 3 shot straight at Pikes Peak. If you're not a member or guest of a member then you can still play by staying in one of the rooms at the Garden of the Gods Club across the street from the course. It's a great boutique hotel at a reasonable price.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Kissing Camels is a private course that has special character. Perched atop a bluff overlooking many beautiful and some spectacular views made for a very enjoyable round. I was a guest of a member who was very gracious. I believe the guest fees are a bit high yet they do compete when compared to other similar private courses. I would definately play there again, given the opportunity.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level
