Designed by Pete Dye to challenge players at any level, The Country Club of Colorado features an immaculately groomed 18-hole championship course. The course was Dye's first to be designed west of the Mississippi and his first venture into Colorado. Lush, tour-quality greens and broad fairways are set alongside our 35-acre lake, with a back drop of the rugged mountain ridgeline and the bright blue southern Colorado sky. Over 300 days of sunshine make this a yearlong course. This championship course is rated 72.4, measuring 7,056 yards. Water comes into play on five of the back nine holes and there are over 50 well-positioned bunkers throughout the course. Many players say that the back nine offers two of the best finishing holes for golf in Colorado!
