Outstanding municipal course

This is my home course, so I may be slightly biased, but regardless, this is an exceptional course. Well maintained, friendly staff and exceptional views.
The course is very tight on the front nine with out of bounds and housing close in. Back nine was redone a few years ago and is more open with water on nearly every hole. A challenge for every level of golfer, but not exceptionally long.
Fantastic value!

Great course with view

This a great course to stop and play at with a great layout and panoramic red Mountain View

Never overly crowded and if you play around August , get a chance to play in some great conditions as mini tour event is right around the corner

Walked

Fun course with some quirks.

Course was in great shape. Especially the greens. It just has a couple of weird holes #2 and #7. Front 9 is tight but the tight holes are fair because they are short. Back 9 is wide open. It is a proof a course does not need to be 7500 yards to make it challenging. I bet the more you play the course the more you appreciate it. Oh ya, there is an irrigation ditch running across # 4 in the landing zone that you can't see from the tee and there is no sign telling you it is there. Fun course just a bit different. You can also walk the course as there is no walking between holes.

A really great muni for the $. Great staff, great layout.

Beautiful views

Course in very nice condition. It was hot so not many players out. Front nine tougher than back nine in my opinion. Highly recommend it.

Nice layout even though there were times when we had to ask where the next T box was. Greens were just drilled so the putting was a little uneven. Other than that all was very good for the price. I would play there again.

A 5 sum on the course would not let me pass. I was forced to pass and skip a par 5 hole.

Great Golf Experience

As a new resident of Grand Junction I was excited to play this highly touted City owned course. I was not disappointed! The setting in the shadows of the Colorado National Monument cannot be beat (although the late afternoon shadows on this 50 degree December day made it quite cool!). From the wonderful staff in the Pro Shop to the good pace of play as well as the conditions of the course for this time of year made it a great golf day!

Awesome views

We love playing this course and without golfnow there is no way we could afford it. The flow of play is scheduled perfect. The rock formations located around it are fascinating and grounds well maintained.
