I have family in the area, so over the last 10 years while visiting I play some golf. It's a fun, straight forward track with nice views of Scottsbluff Monument. Costs are appropriate and pace of play has always been excellent. I played all the other courses in the area (Scottsbluff Country Club, Scenic Knolls, Rolling Green, Chimney Rock, Courthouse and Jail Rock, Four Winds and Sky View) and Monument Shadows if the best overall package. In the summer, it's quite easy to play one course in the morning, grab some lunch, drive 30-45 minutes, get another low price round in on a different course and not be too late for dinner. To be fair, all these small town courses are an asset to their communities.

The first time I played Monument Shadows I knew I would be back. I liked the entire course lay-out. I have continued going back because of the course and the people you keep meeting. Some days you do good other days you just do not shoot as well. Ted Crittenden
