“Two big flaws”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

The golf course is tough but fun to play. It's generally in good shape. But when we played it today the four of us were bothered by two big flaws. The worst was that they had heavily sanded the greens and the result couldn't really be called golf. Yet they didn't warn us of that when we made our tee time and, even more, they still charged the full retail weekend price. That's not right on either count. The other flaw is that they have carefully laid out six different sets of tees so that you can play the distance you desire, from 4,882 yards to 7,241--your choice. But then they go and take all that effort back by not putting the tee markers on the proper tee boxes. That to me is ridiculous. I'm sure they do it to speed up play but it takes away the player's choice to play the distances chosen. Just to speed up play a bit and make a bit more money? It just ain't right, folks. Then throw in the lousy service in the limited menu restaurant and you don't have much of a bargain. My friends and I absolutely refuse to eat there after a round--we've found a sports bar nearby that suits our fancy much better.

“Low Flying and Noisy Air Force Planes Ruin your Day”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

The noise from low flying Air Force planes is unbelievably load. You can't hear yourself think, and there is no way to focus on your shot. If you want to reenact the Battle of Britain than this is the place for you, but if you want to play a round of golf go to another course in the area.

“Well laid out course !”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

I have played this course many times in the past years while visiting Colorado Springs. The course is very well laid out and presents many challenges including distance and placement of shots.
This year we thought that the course was in pristine condition. The fairways were soft and the greens were excellent.

“This course needs to hire REAL rangers!!!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

The course is a very nice public golf course that needs rangers who know how to do thier job. Manage pace of play and don't let more than one hole get in between groups. Played course 4 times in 2 weeks and each round took well over 5 hours. Ridiculous.

“Nice course, 1st hole is a killer”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

I used to play Pine Creek many years ago before it was a residential course. Now it's lined with houses and has been re-designed a bit. The first hole is a par 4 with hazards at the 1st and 2nd shots so make sure you can clear them or lay up. They have a driving range and putting and chipping greens for practice. They also have a bar and limited grill. Enjoy!
