Interlocken Golf Club - Sunshine/Vista
The Sunshine/Vista Course at the Interlocken Golf Club is one of three courses offered at the facility. The courses were designed by a team of famous golfers, David Graham who was a U.S. Open Champion in 1981 and Gary Parks. They are all nine-hole courses that are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The mountainous terrain creates dramatic elevation changes. Interlocken Golf Club's greens are difficult to read and feature lots of undulation. There are also water hazards and bunkers that come into play. The beautiful scenery of the course allows for beautiful views and sometimes golfers can even see a fox or deer roaming the golf course.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Colorado
When booking we should have been advised it was a cart path only day; this is a very strenuous course to walk especially for seniors.
Had a great time! Tee boxes were all pretty level, (my pet peeve when going to nicer courses) but they nailed it for me on all aspects. Good job Omni interlocken I’m sure I will see you all again in the future!
Course in pretty good shape despite lack of rain. Some of the rough was pretty thick and a challenge to get a club through it. Good speed on the greens with true roll. The sand traps I was in were hard packed and need some deep racking and some water (again no rain). Imagine the winds have blown off the top layer of sand.
This was a real gem. I was fortunate to get in an early spring round and the course was in great shape. The greens rolled true and the grass in the fairways was perfect. My only area of concern was the quality of the sand here. It was rocky and inconsistent.. the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. I can’t wait to play here again in the fall.
Spring special tipped scales!
Read all about it!?!?!
Okay. To be fair, all Colorado courses have aerated so the greens are in rough shape but speaking only to the tee-to-green shots and challenge, I was expecting more from Interlocken.
Having played Riverdale Dunes, where each hole is cut into its own little valley, shaped by the natural land, I thought Interlocken was like this but no, its not.
It's perfectly fine for a nice "muni" golf course but since its the major attraction for the hotel, BANG goes up the price and its simply NOT worth $140+ per round... its not! I'm very glad to only have paid $76 to play. If and when you play and pay more, you'll see what I mean and the starter getting people out to their rounds was confused on the who and where so that backed it up from the start. 2nd nine (Vista) was backed up three groups!
If I'm going to pay $120+ to play golf here in Colorado, it has to be Arrowhead or the guest fee at Cherry Hills or Castle Pines.
P.S. - Do NOT bug the cart-girl... she's on her phone... constantly and cannot be bothered by pesky golfers requesting beer, candy or even an ice water... all day, she drove past us at least six times and never even hinted at stopping to ask us if we wanted anything!
Premium level course, range balls and cart are already set for you with tees and a white towel to clean your clubs. Cold water refilling station right before you set off. Very friendly pro shop !
Best spot between Boulder and Denver
Great course super friendly staff everyone from the club house to the bar and even the people keeping the course in tip top shape we’re pleasant and polite. I love this course there are 3 unique 9 hole courses that all have their own challenges.
Cart path only in December and drought, so no biggie. But the fires were going and it was rough to play in smoke and ash.
Pretty Nice Course
I didn't give this course a full 5 star review due to the time of year that I played. The price for an off season round seemed a little high to me. That being said, the staff and the layout here are excellent !! There is some elevation changes and dog legs that give this course some fun character. My suggestion is to play here in the mid summer months. Be prepared to pay 140 to 150 mid week and possibly a little more on the weekends. Enjoy !!
Cart Path Only!!!!!
the course was dry, not sure why it was cart path only. barely finished by dusk because of this, and some slow players. if i had known (through GolfNow) ahead of time I would have went elsewhere, ridiculous how much they charged for cart path only!!
the course layout is terrific, but the greens were furry as were the fairways. i’m guessing because of a cold snap then warm again, but still need to cut the greens, not just roll them. the greens were bumpy, they rolled ok(maybe 10) would like to have seen them closer to 12.
Excellent course - We played in extremely big winds
Nice layout w/ better than average fairway width’s and extremely large and difficult greed because of the up & down and sideways slopes
My son was a member for several years and I believe win the club championship a couple of times
Great Course. Great Views. Great Staff.
While the greens fees are higher here, the course and the amenities are worth every penny. Cart, tees, and range balls are included in the price and even non-members are treated extremely well. The course is challenging but fun. This is my new favorite place to play!
