About

Holes 9
Type Public/Municipal
Par 34
Length 2983 yards
Slope 113
Rating 33.5

Located in Longmont, the nine-hole, municipal Sunset Golf Course is a great, affordable option for beginners and families. Opened in 1924, it is one of Colorado's oldest golf courses. Although experienced golfers may not find it challenging enough, the course provides an excellent spot to practice your short game and it is definitely one of the most scenic courses in the area with beautiful views of Long's Peak. The par-34 course covers 2,981 yards from its longest tees. The terrain of Sunset Golf Course is quite hilly and the tree-lined fairways are very narrow. No water hazards come into play but the course is well-bunkered. The signature hole is the par-4 fourth hole.

Great Early March Round to Start My Season

I had not played in months, due to the weather, but March 7 was a 68 degree day, with lots of sunshine, and pretty views. The course is very cleaned up (no leaves, or snow to deal with) and the ball rolled very well, (sometimes too well). I was able to par the last 2 holes, but my game started out rough on the first two holes I loved that the refreshment cart was out and running, and she made it a joy too! I look forward to coming back again when the weather is similarly good.

Great value

You can usually play nine with a cart for 17$-25$. It's a hybrid Par 3 and 4. The layout is good with tight fairways, many trees, and well placed bunkers (no water). Have played here a lot and would recommend if you're looking for a cost effective and well balanced course.

Favorite place to play!

Wow! Nothing but amazing things to say about Sunset. The staff is always so nice, playing partners are always a hoot and this has grown to be our favorite 9 hole practice course. The configuration offers its own challenges but you can always get yourself out of a sticky situation. But 12 bucks to walk 9 holes? Twist my arm!

Course plays like an old friend

I play Sunset a lot--I've never been disappointed. The course is consistently in excellent shape. This year early, they had to work on the greens and the staff really took care of it. Now, having played recently, everything is tip-top. I understand that this year they are having lots of players playing and that has created some slow play, but generally I can play 9 holes in 1:45 - 50 minutes (and I walk). For me, I'm about a 18 handicap, the course offers enough challenge. I've had some good rounds, but then there have been some sneaky poor rounds. I can't complain. I enjoy Sunset like I enjoy an old friend.
