About

Type Public
Par 72
Length 7676 yards
Slope 144
Rating 75.5

The golf course at the Colorado National Golf Club is an 18-hole, public course that is situated just 20 minutes north of Denver. Jay Morrish designed the formerly known as Vista Ridge golf course with a traditional links-style layout. The course covers 7,676 yards of golf from its longest tees and plays to a par of 72. Rolling fairways lined with native grasses and large, undulating greens make the golf course interesting, while beautiful views of snow-topped mountains provide pleasant scenery. The course has many bunkers as well as water hazards. Colorado National Golf Club also features five sets of tee boxes for golfers to work on a number of different handicaps.

Great course, hazards everywhere

Course was great. We played on Tuesday and had the place practically to ourselves. Challenging holes; if you can’t keep it in the fairway, you are in for a long day!

Too much for not enough

It is a pretty good course, but not for the cost.

Staff was a bit standoffish, also the bar staff was a bit ho-hum about service. just an overall disappointing experience for the cost.

Staff only seemed interested in members.

Tried talking and even joking with the clubhouse guys but they seemed to not want to give me the time of day, they seemed VERY stuck up. I’ve been playing golf for 25 years (90% of my life) and know what I’m doing. The rangers and cart girl were really nice and very respectful.

Slow

The second group in front of us hit at least 3 tee shots on the first tee and the starter said nothing to them. It only got slower from that point on. The marshal said he talked to the group but the pace didn’t pick up. Ended up quitting on the 15th.

WONDERFUL SCENERY

Because of heavy rain the previous two days we were cart path only which slowed our pace of play.The course is very fun to play and has plenty of challenges. I can't wait to play it again. It is in wonderful condition, especially for a public course.

Sweet Layout w. Wide fairways

First timer but we played with a local and it was perfect day. He directed us on where to hit so it made the play faster. Thus course plays really long. We played the second back from the tips and it was challenging. Very good value for the money.

Great course , lots of bunker construction

Enjoyed playing but was a lot of distractions going on. workers and heavy equipment on a majority of course working on bunkers and irrigation. Kids walking cart paths from park and pool being loud. People riding bikes on cart path to houses.

Good Public Course

First time at course. Great layout, Areas appear to need attention, sand bunkers need help. Soggy areas but apparently rain has been a factor lately. Will play it again.
