Colorado Golf Club is a Private 18-hole golf course located in Parker, Colorado.
Colorado Golf Club opened in 2007. The course was designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.
Coore and Crenshaw were the partnership behind Sand Hills and Bandon Trails. In Parker, Colorado they were handed a 1,700-acre former Arabian horse ranch complete with deep gullies, meadows and clusters of tall pines. The fairways here follow the lay of the land, and multi-tiered greens ensure a variety of shotmaking skills are required to navigate the challenges. After the 653-yard downhill opening hole, the course switches gears abruptly at the 154-yard, par-3 2nd, which demands a precise pitch over a wash and a pot bunker to a tiny green that rejects balls hit to the edges. Game on.
The 7604-yard, par-72 course plays through open meadows, wooded hillsides, natural barrancas and streams. With a variety of hole orientations and intriguing mix of shots, short and long, uphill and downhill, Coore and Crenshaw have created a "journey" that engages all elements of the game. The absence of homes along the golf course - the course is surrounded by 1,100 acres of open space - allows golfers to fully experience the strategic choices and challenges that Coore and Crenshaw have laid out. Natural landforms seamlessly tie into the course design. The par-5 seventh features a bunker inspired by a spring snowfall. The bunker separates two levels of fairway, inviting the golfer to try a heroic tee shot for a shorter route to the green. Golfers will face such decisions repeatedly at Colorado Golf Club.

A benign appearance but a killer to play if one is not on their game. Need to play more than once to get the hang of the lay of the course. We had to take a caddy but he wasn't very good, unfortunately, but a good caddy would make the round much more enjoyable & get you around the course. With enough blind shots, it is mandatory you know in which direction to hit! I would love to return to try it again...if you like challenges!
