WoW!! What a surprise to find this course, get the first tee time and to set the pace. I decided to walk ($30) the "Canyon & Meadow" layouts as it was cart path only. I got my workout as the first 5 holes of the Canyon (3,475yds/Par 35) are uphill and then, of course, downhill from there. That #5 hole is one great 445yd Par4 that had me hitting a 6 iron 2nd shot into a green WELL below the fairway. Having a 3 putt from 15' ended one happy walk to the green, oh well, that's golf. I did get sanctification thou on #7 461yd Par 4 with a Birdie coming from another 6 iron shot, having the flat stick sinking a 25' putt, I'm back!! Teamed up with George from Cleveland, OH on the Meadow (3,333yd Par 36) flatter links layout which walked a little easier. More water here winding throughout the layout but good landing areas w/ sand traps (groomed & fluffed) well placed also. Both courses are well marked on yardages and even the tee boxes have preferred landing distances to assist players. Great Idea. Shot 39/39 w/33 putts from the tips, walked 6.4 miles taking 15,670 steps, climbed 18 floors in 3.5hrs but would recommend taking the cart. One other thing, the ball does travel further here in Denver, CO than in Michigan as I was hitting 180yd 6 irons vs normal 150-160yds. This is a must play if you get to this area for price and conditions as you won't be disappointed.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area
