Each piece serves as a reminder of the rich history of the property and adds to the award winning golf experience.

Ok, so I'm not a golfer and we didn't get to play here but we stopped for a while and really enjoyed the views and atmosphere of the place. The course looks very tight and difficult. On 12 you can view some of the fossils from triceratops trail. You can actually see the palm fossil that inspired their logo.

I thought the conditions at the course were excellent. The course really requires tight accuracy, which I didn't have this past weekend. The rough was a little thick for my liking, but all in all a good round. There was some construction going on a a Detention Center right next to it. That kind of took away from the scenery, but there was still some great photo ops to be had.

This is a great course to play if you are in the Denver area. The way the course was designed around the natural features makes it a course to remember. Take a minute to look at the fossil exhibit after hole 12. The course was in great shape and the staff was very nice.

This was an incredible course. If you haven't played it, then you need to make it a priority. It was in great shape and the views were breathtaking. We are mid handicap golfers, we found it fair and yet challenging and the staff was great!

At first I was put off by price of the greens fee but my playing partner talked me into it.
This course is absolutely beautiful ! A couple of fairways weren't in the greatest condition but I (we) visited at the end of May. Overall, a GREAT golf experience.
