About

Holes 18
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.

Borderline miserable round of golf

When it takes 1.5 hours to play 3 holes, something is wrong. Even worse, the ranger/Marshall said there was nothing he could do and pace of play is usually around 5-5.5 hours. In over 25 years of playing golf and 10 years working at a course, never have I seen 4 foursomes on one hole. Tee’d off at 1:30 and only got through 15 holes before dark. Saving grace was the best beverage cart girl I’ve ever encountered. She genuinely felt bad for everyone and did everything in her power to make people happy. Terrible experience with the exception of the bev cart. The marshall not doing his job whatsoever and arguing with all the golfers cost the course a lot of money. Course layout and condition were fine but when you’re waiting 20+ minutes on every box it ruins the experience.

Awful customer service

Pro shop was so rude especially Kirk hon. Kirk hon was the rudest pro shop dude I’ve ever spoken to. Has no respect for his customers and even went as far as calling me a scammer. Dude should not be allowed to be in customer service.

Staff was unfriendly

Kirk hon was the rudest pro shop staff I’ve ever talked to. Very unfriendly and wouldn’t even let my buddy ride with me without paying 30$ for a cart fee. Wouldn’t play this course if it was the last course in Colorado to play and was free and came with a set of Taylor made clubs.

Spend your money elsewhere

Kirk hon is the rudest pro I’ve ever spoken to or pro shop manager because I couldn’t imagine him being a pro. Course is nice but Kirk hon is the reason people don’t play this course more than once. Rudest customer service ever, when that’s what he’s supposed to be best at. Not worth the money even if it was free.

Great but also not

This course has a fun layout and is in great shape but we played on a 90 degree afternoon and didn’t see the drink cart after the 3rd hole and there is zero water available around the course. Bring 3 gallons of your own water or get severe dehydration like we did. Kind of a bummer.

Good course as long as they know you pre paid

Booked my round through GolfNow - Had to prepay for the entire round.
Get to the course, the pro shop tells me that I owe an additional 80. I tell them that I pre paid and they say no I did not
After searching for my confirmation email from GolfNow - they then state that they charge a different cost for a round on the weekends.
I state I am not paying anything additional, and after 5 minutes of debating among the staff they decide to let me play.
Then they state I have to share a cart with a stranger - no worries about COVID at all.
Be careful when booking your round through a 3rd party site.
