About

Holes 18
Type Public/Municipal
Par 72
Length 7198 yards
Slope 135
Rating 73.6

Formerly a cornfield, Robert Trent Jones Jr. utilized the natural area and the import of over 600,000 cubic yards of dirt to create the challenging Ute Creek Golf Course. The championship course has a traditional links-style layout that is said to challenge even the most avid of golfers. The public, 18-hole golf course offers 7,167 yards from its longest tees, playing to a par of 72. It features several water hazards, especially on the back nine holes, with five lakes situated on the course and two streams that wind through it. Ute Creek Golf Course's well-bunkered greens and undulating, multi-level fairways provide more interesting elements to the game.

Great Experience

Being older we played from the forward tees (5500 yds.) and had a great time. There are 5 sets of tees that make the course adjustable to your game, from old and short (like me) to long and brutal.

No matter what tees you choose the fairways were generous in width and there was nothing really tricky about the course. There are some greens that are on the smaller side but generally, they are well proportioned to the length of the hole.

All in all the course made golf fun like it's supposed to be and I had fun in spades!

Slow day

The course wasn’t overly busy yet we had to wait on every shot. The Marshall said there was a ladies league that played 9 holes earlier and they were holding up play. Afterwards they were gone and the group in front of us had 1 speed, slow. They need to take up bowling. They left clubs on some holes and didn’t replace or fill divots. They could have let us through but they were obviously going about their round like they owned the course. 5hrs is too long for 18 holes. And the bunkers were wet, and they have a lot of them, so they don’t need to water them, they won’t grow anymore. And I think the last time I was there a few months ago, they had just sanded the greens, so I don’t know why they needed to do it again so soon.
Overall, I was playing golf so it was better than working.

70+ yrs. old from the red tees

Being older golfers, we played the forward tees and found the course wonderfully playable! The fairways were wide and had grass that allowed wedges as well as woods good lies. Even the generous bunkering was well maintained. If you’re a bomber you’ll also find the course playable and fun! Highly recommend it!

Great day of golf

We had a wonderful day of golf at Ute Creek. We were paired with a very nice couple. The gentleman was an excellent golfer. Pace of play was perfect. Course was in great shape. Some of the holes had been redesigned. It was a pleasant surprise. Overall, with great weather, playing good golf, meeting new friends, couldn’t get any better.

Nice course

The last time I plaid this course it didn't have any houses on it. It has just opened up. The course has matured a lot, houses are all around it. Weather was excellent, started pouring right after we finished.

Greens and fairways are in great shape, some ball marks on the greens and it seems people aren't repairing them.

Greens rolled well, probably 10-11, first couple of greens were faster then the rest were a little slower.

Enjoyed the course, played with a couple of singles that were very enjoyable to play with.

Conditions not great

Colorado has been hot, greens had been aerated, mowed and rolled. Net result was unreasonable green speeds, despite green fairways and lush rough. I've enjoyed this course in the past, but not today.

Nice course, but they have recently punched the greens so it was still not ideal. They also started us on 10 which also made it tougher than it should be.

Terrible Sand In Their Traps

This is overall a very nice and challenging golf course. I usually play it several times over the course of the season. Every time I do, I remember what I dislike like about it. It has the worst excuse for sand that I have ever played out of. It actually is more like road base. They have precious little of it in the bottoms of the bunkers. If you try to play a normal sand shot your club just bounces off the hard pan just under the surface. I have been told they use this because of the wind in the winter time blowing the sand away.
So let me get this straight, this is a summer game, but you are more concerned about what is happening in your traps in the winter when few are playing, than giving all your customers in the summer a fair and satisfying experience.....Things that make you go Hmmmmm????? Seems like their ought to be room in the budget somewhere for real sand. If so, I would certainly play this course more.
