Type Public
Par 72
Length 7007 yards
Slope 134
Rating 72.1

The Raccoon Creek Golf Course is a public, 18-hole golf course in Littleton. It covers 7,045 yards from its longest tees and plays to a par of 72. The course has some difficult elements, such as elevation changes, but it is still beginner-friendly. Water hazards come into play on seventeen holes. The most difficult hole of the course, one of the most difficult in Colorado according to the Colorado Golf Associates, is the par-3 17th hole. The hole runs alongside a creek, the creek that the course is named after, and requires a shot over a portion of it to a very well protected green.

Slooooow pace

Why add players during a tourney? Greedy I was told. They made their money and I wasted my time. I had to get a rain check for back 9 because they wouldn’t give me a refund. Took just over 3 hours to play first 9. They knew this. Greens haven’t been cut in weeks I feel like. They were long and slow. Fairways we in okay shape. Lots of dirt patches. $82 I guess isn’t bad. Oh and the carts all need to be replaced. My back tire was low after hole number 3.

Course was ok, not overly impressive. Thought it was a very high class course as I expected. Did NOT have any ball washes, or club washes through the course, nor on the cart. Also, no sand was provided for fixing divots. The containers were on the cart but they were empty. Also, the carts in general had no power. You would put your foot on the peddle and it would not move. You had to prime the gas peddle a few times before the carts would even move.

Course was fine- staff not so much

The course itself is very nice. The pro shop staff was rude and condescending when I told them my handicapped wife was going to ride with me. I paid the extra fee but they complained about lack of carts. Also when I pulled up to the bag drop, 3 young staff members just stood there chatting. I unloaded my own clubs and when I asked about carts they just grunted and said go to pro shop.

I won’t return

Rev. Rittinger

Loved the course. Great challenge and layout. My only criticism would be the bunkers, sand would make this course pristine. If I travel back to Denver again I would want to play this course again

Very solid layout for a great price

Played this course in April but it was so windy it was hard to rate. This time around the course was in excellent shape all around, even with a large outing in the morning. Will definitely come back very soon and hopefully with a foursome to enjoy again..

Walked

Want to play a round in 5+ Hours? Then play here.

If you dont mind slow play, 5 hour plus round, then Racoon Creek is a the track for you. I spoke to both the starter and ranger on the course the past few rounds about the slow play. I was told the owners/ management has decided to have tee times every 9 minutes. This allows them to get more people out on the course. They told me that although they have been getting a lot of complaints about the slow play players keep coming back, so management does not fell like they need to make a change. Both told me it is all about the money rather than player experience. As long as they keep having full tee times they will stick with the policy of 9 min tee times in order to make more money. I love to be on the course, but slow play makes golf not fun. I like this course however when a course tells me that a 5 hour round is ok with them I will have a much better experience playing on another course. There a plenty of nice courses in the area that care about my experience on the course.
