Haystack Mountain Golf Course in Longmont utilizes the natural landscape of the course to provide a fun and challenging nine-hole course. Cottonwoods line some of the fairways and are scattered throughout and the lush greens meld seamlessly with the rolling terrain. The public, executive-length golf course is 2,153 yards from its longest tees with a par of 32. The course features a links-style layout with lovely views of the Flatirons. It is a relatively flat course that is suitable for all levels of golfers. Although it is a shorter course, the interesting layout guarantees a challenge for all. Haystack Mountain Golf Course's par-4 third hold is the signature hole, which features a tricky dogleg left.

Goodbye and Good riddance

Easily the worst 9 hole ive played in my life. The fairways are dead, the greens arent taken care of, the tee boxes arent level and can sometimes just be only dirt, and the pace of play is abysmal. I can not wait for this place to close so I can get my friends to play on a golf course that is actually taken care of. The staffs nice though.

Course was actually closed and no emails to let us know. Figure with a prepaid tee time no excuse for not sending out an email or maybe they shouldn't have offered a tee time in the first place!

Play it while you can!

This course has been open since the 1960's, it will unfortunately shut down in September. It will close so that Rich people can develop the land into residential lots...epic views and laid back vibe is one of a kind! Play it while you can!

Sad to see it go

Got in to play Haystack Mountain and had a good time. It was sad to learn that the course would close for good in August and the land turned into housing development.

A bit rough

The course is odd. The layout doesn’t flow. It’s hard to know where the next tee box is at times. The fairways are long grass. More like the first cut of rough on a bigger course. The greens are in rough shape. Some weeds on the greens and apparently the regulars don’t know how to fix a ball mark. I could’ve spent half an hour on each hole just fixing ball marks. The tee boxes are uneven and beat up. I played a single and wasn’t asked to play through once even though it would’ve made things move a lot faster for everyone. I guess I should complain for 15 bucks for nine holes though.

Not the best course I’ve played....

Definitely not the best course. You have to wait in line for the 1st tee since they don’t do reservations. The course is poorly maintained with dead spots throughout. Worst greens I’ve ever seen. There is no fairways. Just shorter rough. However....! It was a very pretty course. Lots of trees and streams and ponds. Not an overly difficult course but with the course conditions, it makes it harder.

Haystack

Letting a single out when not busy is alright. However there were 3 parties behind her. This really slowed down play.

GolfNow Ripoff

I booked a 9:30 am tee time. The course told me that they don't reserve tee times and I had to wait for one hour in a long line. GolfNow was deceptive in saying that the tee time was reserved.
