The golf course at the Arrowhead Golf Club has been declared the top public course in Denver in the past by Golf Digest, as well as one of the top 75 public courses in the nation. The towering red sandstone rock formations are a trademark of the course, providing a unique and beautiful atmosphere, which is further enhanced by the abundant wildlife that have made the course their home. The rolling terrain provides elevation changes and undulation to the greens. Water hazards and bunkers also come into play on the course. Arrowhead Golf Club's signature hole is the par-3 13th hole. It is a steep, downhill hole with scenic views.

Golf in the Gardens of the Gods

5 stars! Absolutely gorgeous golf course. Played in early December and hit a 68 degree day! Couldn’t ask for better. Staff was friendly. Course conditions were excellent even in December. Layout is beautiful! If anyone is familiar with The Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. This is like they routed a golf course thru it. Bucket list type place. Warm up range is only about 200 but adequate to warm up. Practice green is very nice. Carts had GPS. I chose to walk. It’s got some elevation up and down, but it’s doable just not recommended unless you really enjoy walking! Bucket list! Go play!

The course condition was decent for being late in the fall. My complaint is about the experience we had with 2 randoms that turned out to be 3 people (one is a ride along which was fine). Two golfers with only 1 set of clubs. Dressed in jeans and t-shirts, they took plenty of pictures and videos of the course. It just didn't feel like we were out there for a round of golf with camera and phone video rolling throughout the round.

6 HOURS is a Joke

We flew into Denver specifically to play this course. Nearly a 6 hour round spoiled everything good about the course. When we mentioned to staff, it was yeah that's pretty common. Longest round we have played in over 10 years. SO disappointing.

Arrowhead is a great course to play if you have the time. The setting back in amidst the rock outcroppings is fantastic and there are amazing views from some of the tee boxes.

Unique

There are not many courses where the driving range offers incredible views. Arrowhead is one of them. This is the type of place where people would come to gawk at the scenery if there was never a golf course built here. We are lucky to be able to play our sport in such magnificent surroundings.

When playing Arrowhead, try not to get too caught up in the views. There are plenty of good golf holes that are sure to challenge any golf enthusiast. You will need to be in good spots off the tee to score well, and the greens can be quite tricky.

Don' expect a a quick round out here. They do try to keep the pace moving, but understandably things can get a little slow as most players are enjoying the views just as much as the golf. This is more like a destination course than most in the area.

Arrowhead is a must see for anyone coming from out of town. There is really nothing quite like it anywhere else.

Terrible course

After all the hype about this course online and everything it's not what they say at all. The greens were extremely slow they probably hadn't been mowed in at least 2 days the T boxes were beat up and had no grass growing on them in some spots the bunkers were rock and just dirt. A couple holes had 3 groups on them one on the green one waiting in the fairway and one waiting on the T box. The views were the only thing that was good about the course. Save your money don't play this course it's not worth 129$ at 3 o'clock and definitely not worth 179$ in the morning time. Go play Fossil Trace in Golden Colorado. It's stunning spectacular and pure. Arrowhead is a waist

Views were unreal, course in good shape

First time playing here and was taken back by the views during the whole round as I had my camera out alot. The layout is tight but expected with the lay of the land. Course was in real good shape with no visible wet spots from all the rain. Greens were running quick and with all the undulations, putts can run by real easily. Overall, I come back again maybe a little dried out to see how it plays then.

Excellent Conditions

I get out and play this course about once a year. The views never disappoint and the course has a lot of fun holes.

I love the par 3 3rd where they can actually set the pin in between the rock formation if they want. Players have a few opportunities to send a drive over the rock walls to cut the corner on 5, 12 and 15. The signature 13th is spectacular with a dramatic drop between 2 huge rock formations to the green below. There are so many fun holes on the course.

This year Arrrowhead has some of the best conditions I have seen. The fairways are in spectacular shape and the greens are very smooth. I always like playing here for the views, but the course is better this year. The only complaint is pace of play, but you can't expect a 4 hour round oat this type of course. Everyone is enjoying the scenery during the round.

If you get a chance to play it, especially with out of town golfers, go do it this summer!
