Detailed description of Fitzsimons Golf Course, CLOSED 2017

Fitzsimons Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Aurora, Colorado.

Fitzsimons Golf Course first opened for play in 1918 with just 3 sand greens. In 1939 the course evolved into an 18 hole layout designed by Army Corp of Engineers.

The course was a favorite of former President Dwight Eisenhower. There is a tree located in the middle of the sixth fairway that is named after the former president with a wood plaque that reads “Ike’s Tree.” 

Fitzsimons became an Aurora public golf course in 1998. This tree-lined golf gem is now an attractive cornerstone to a bioscience park with some of the state’s leading hospitals. The redesigned holes on the front nine, done by Richard Phelps in 2004, are a great complement to the old-time layout and strong traditions at Fitzsimons.

The course has tree-lined fairways and elevated greens that are small and fast. A water hazard comes into play on only one hole.

Blue tees: par-71, 6,282 yards, 69.3 / 126(M), 75.2 / 132(W)
White tees: par-71, 5,986 yards, 67.8 / 122(M),   73.2 / 130(W)
Red tees: par-71, 5,606 yards, 70.9 / 123

The course closed December 15, 2017.

The course property will used to expand the Medical Center and Biotech Park.

The course was in very good shape. The rough wasn't too long, the grass was mowed and in great shape and the traps and greens were manicured.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
