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.

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!

Course conditions

The greens were in terrible shape and so are the teas for paying full price I expected more staff was friendly but I expected a refund or a rain check for a free round for my group.

great course, tough greens

I have played over 500 courses in 20+ states, Interlocken had the toughest green complexes I have ever played. Putts broke opposite from what you saw, greens were rolling at 11+, and the contours were crazy. 3 times I was on the green in regulation, hit a putt, and had a 10-20 yard chip coming back up the hill. One guy in the group had a 4 footer, missed it low but not too hard, and had 40 yards coming back. Crazy stuff. Frustrating.

The rest of the course is very nice. It kind of sits down in a bowl so you don't get the views like on some other CO courses. Conditions were perfect, even after a brief frost delay that morning. Good sight lines off the tee, some very cool holes, and a very fair course until you got to the greens. Pace was a bit slow, but mostly due to the greens.

Staff was very attentive and organized. I lost my belt to TSA and they were able to hook me up with a NexBelt. Their tee time procedures are a bit difficult to figure out, but it seemed to work. We saw coyote, deer, and several raptors on the course which I always enjoy.

Most of the course and amenities I would give 5 stars, but they need to keep in mind this is a resort course and not kill us with pin placements. Very enjoyable nonetheless and I would recommend if you are in NW Denver.

BAD EXPREIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DON'T PLAY!!!

Great course. Group behind us were hitting into us through our round. We were a foursome (including 2 members) that played in 4 hours and 15 minutes. I don't know if that is slow for this course, but I think that 4:20 on any course as a foursome is average. The twosome behind us threatened us several times and I considered contacting local police since there were no rangers. The twosome blamed us for the group of 2 behind them hitting into therm. I don't think that was our fault. I would have recomended that the 2 twosomes join up but that was not up to us. Maybe the course could have arranged that but they did not. At $105 a round, I don't appreciate being threatened during my play. I DO NOT RECOMEND THIS COURSE. I would avoid like the plague.

Great Time

The course was absolutely amazing and the 2 we were paired with were awesome as well. I paid for 27 holes but we were only able to play 18 due to the timing of play. The people in front of us were relatively slow but the overall day was great. The greens were as tricky as I've ever played greens and you had to place the ball within 3' to even have a chance at birdie or par for that matter. Overall great day and I'm thinking of becoming a member if possible. The people we played with told me about member fees and they were not bad for the atmosphere.

Nice Course, Tricky Greens

The course is quite nice, and in very good condition. But the greens were lightning fast and putting was hard. Course is probably worth $60-$80, but not over $100 like they charge in the Summer.

Good round but get a deal

Last minute Tee time so we paid through the nose. Couldn't get on anywhere else so there's that...

3 1/2 hour round on a Saturday! Short but challenging - the greens are hard t read are fast and have some have severe false fronts - had a GIR turn into a double a couple of times.

Should have coolers on the carts and ball washers on the carts and/or by the tee boxes. Also would be nice to see the beverage cart more than once.

A pleasure, even on a wet and windy day!

We played the Sunshine/Vista and even the though the weather had been bad you could see it was well looked after, green and drained well. The course is situated near a large business park but its nestled in a valley so you hardly see any of the man made stuff and hardly see anybody else playing any parallel holes.

Its a tough but fair course and I found its biggest challenges lie on the greens, which are very undulating and can can be tricky to read. Some bunkers lie pretty tight to the greens too, so getting up and down if you miss them can be tricky. So be careful not to get drawn into flag hunting on every hole.
