I would rate both Saddle Rock GC and Murphy Creek GC in Aurora [the latter hosted a US Publinx Championship some years ago] way ahead of Heritage Eagle Bend (also in Aurora) -- all are public courses.  I live in Aurora and have played all 3.  I also agree that Bear Dance GC is the equal of any of those listed and better than most.

Hi.

How can Bear Dance GC in Larkspur, CO not make this list??  Put a couple of the aforementioned courses to shame - IMHO.

Thanks for the list.

It's received 3/3 5-star reviews but needs more to qualify for these lists: http://www.golfadvisor.com/courses/16235-the-golf-club-at-bear-dance/

Telluride, Colorado is known more for its skiing than its golf, but Telluride Golf Club certainly holds its own. I knew the course was going to be scenic, but that was just the beginning.
