Southglenn Country Club
The golf course at the Southglenn Country Club is a short, par-3 course in Littleton. The private, nine-hole course is 1,387 yards from its longest tees and provides a perfect golf outing for beginners. There are no water hazards but there are sand bunkers. More advanced golfers may find this course too easy, but it is great for those wanting to work on their short game. The course does not have power carts but it is easily walkable so it is not a problem. Southglenn Country Club is perfect for families since there are many extra facilities on the premises that would appeal to younger crowd such as a heated pool and clubhouse.

Average at best
Honestly not bad for a par 3 but the course wasn’t in the best shape and what you pay for isn’t worth it. There were also times I was waiting for the staff on a few holes and there was also a guy trying to teach a lesson during the middle of the day (one of the groundskeepers did come up and talk to him before I got to the tee box to make him move the lesson)
A full golf experience.
Course was in great condition for a public mountain course. Challenging, but fair. I used most of the clubs in my bag. Will definitely play again, more than once.
Sharpen your irons
Very nice and relaxed par 3 with very well kept greens. Rough around the edges but worth the price to sharpen your short game.
Hardly a country club
This course should hardly be considered a country club. The grounds are poorly kept, golfers walking on/off the course at varying tees and the members (at least the first one I met) was downright rude.
I had a rude (dare I say racist) member single me out in the parking lot because he thought I was too close to his vehicle and he was afraid I would damage his brand new, expensive car. Mind you, I wasn't near his car and the last time I checked I'm middle-aged, woman executive and I've never damaged anyone's property in my life. The only reason I could think that he yelled this to me in particular was due to race because my Caucasian husband was also standing nearby (actually closer than I was) and he never said a word to him. While this incident isn't the fault of the club, we will not patronize businesses that have these types of people frequenting there. His behavior was downright mean, hurtful and uncalled for. He did apologize later but the damage was done.
The man you were talking about is my father, and having grown up with him, I have been yelled at more times than I can count (even if it was my brother or a stranger who was closer to the vehicle) about being too close to his vehicle or possibly damaging it regardless of the vehicle's age/cost/condition. My brother and I are in our late 30's and still walk on eggshells when it comes to any car; the man keeps a car looking like it's brand new until it is so old it is simply time for a new vehicle. He will park a 15 year old vehicle as far away as possible to prevent anyone within a 40ft radius of possibly damaging it. My father recently got that car, and it was one he had wanted for a very long time. He continues to work full time while being the full time caretaker of my mom/the love of his life who has Alzheimer's; being able to get to the golf course is often his only time for some self-care from often very challenging days. Perhaps his protectiveness of his cars is a character flaw, not one that you would ever know about since you do no know the man, but one I wanted to explain.
My father is a grandfather to two amazing and beautiful biracial twin girls, and he has welcomed my significant other and his older children who are black with open arms, that while not perfect, has been beside himself knowing about this post as his intentions to yell at someone about his "precious" vehicle were not racially motivated. He is a man who has and continues to educate himself and learn about his white privilege and racism, and how to do better to support anti-racism. I am sorry that his apology offered nothing to the damage. Perhaps he'll respond to this post, I'm not sure if he's internet savvy on it though. When I was told there was a post about my father, I was first told that it was that there was a complaint that he yelled at someone about being too close to his car, and I thought, "yeah, he's weird about his cars. I can see why someone would be annoyed." When I heard that the post said my father was singling out someone for being black, I knew that was not the case in this situation.
At the end of the day, the situation you encountered was hurtful for you. I do not know what it is like to be singled out because of my skin color and I do not have to ever wonder if I'm being singled out or accused of something because of my skin color; I do see this happen to the other members of my household, and this is something we have discussions about in our family and how we can be aware and do better. This incident also sparks reflection and discussion how our actions as white people, even with no aware intent of racist actions, can still have racist intent.
I can't speak on every aspect of my father's life or his intentions for everything, so all I could speak on was that when it comes to his car, it doesn't matter who is near it, and that's coming from knowing the man my whole life. Again, I am not condoning his actions, just offering some insight to your question about about why someone would yell at you about a car.
I am not sure you will even see this reply. If you do, maybe it will help offer some insight into the reasoning behind why my dad yelled at you. I can't attest to the "types of people" who golf at SGCC, because I hate golf and haven't seen that place in years, but hopefully after reading this (and maybe my dad will respond; like I said, he knows the post exists, I just don't know if he knows to respond), your choice to not go to the club won't be because of this incident.
When arriving to check in it was unorganized and chaotic. There wasn't clear signs on where to check in. When we finally figured out where to go, it was a little window and the young lady working seemed a bit frazzled. I think someone should have been there to help with the people checking in. After checkin in and signing the pointless waiver we were greeted with about 10-12 people all standing around hole 1. Some were "members " of the "country club". They were extremely rude as they thought they were entitled to being able to tee off whenever as they kept stating they were "members". We made a tee time and explained that to them. We blew them off and tee'd off shortly after our tee time. Now feeling rushed it was not a good round.
As for the course. It definitely was not a "country club". Don't waste your time. I wish I had something good to say but unfortunately not. Wait.... it was a cheap last minute find
Great short course
Very fast and Easy to walk. Pretty good shape. Great way to work on short game. Greens were slow. If you’re looking to stretch out your driver this won’t be for you- but to get out and practice, it was perfect.
This is a great little course to play when you want isolation and 9 holes fast
I love this course and will make every effort to play it when I have time using GolfNow Non-Hotdeals to make sure the course gets most of the the money. Small 9 holes but nice, isolated, fun, easy to get on and off plus the conditions are great. Personally I do not like to be the member of 1 course nor a men's club as I play all around at very unpredictable times but, if you are looking, the price for 1 year of golf here is GREAT, they are discounting it now and need support.
Hard to call this a golf course
Fairways were like walking in any backyard. Shocked this continues to be on golf now. Can't remember being more disappointed walking up to a course
Great little course
I just wanted to knock the cobwebs off the ol' whacker sticks. Par 3 course. A few were 200+ yrds so pretty challenging. Great little course. I'd definitely return.
Pretty Par 3
9:30 tee time with easy check in and friendly locals. Short par 3’s with two longer par 3’s. The course was very well taken care of including greens and fairways. The clubhouse was under construction not offering any food or drink.
Great local par3
Enjoyed my time at Southglenn, considering membership also. Amy was great and very helpful, course was in great shape, little under two hours great break in the day.
