Aspens, Pines, and Creek. Oh My!
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: The Baskets ARE there!
Super Fun Design Layout
Apsen Groves, Oldgrowth Pines, Creekage, Elevation, and Rock Croppings = DG Paradise
Custom Baskets, give this private course extra character
Bright Orange Number Plates on Baskets
Pretty easy Navigation, aided with some arrows
Benches by every Teepad
Finishes with "Top of the World" Shot
Cons: No Par 4 Holes, except #1. Only because I can't 3 it for the life of me :p
Teepad for #5 requires safe footwork
Property doesn't have a Second course
Other Thoughts: I'm indifferent to Tee Areas. The rubber mats here do a fine job :)
No Teesigns, but only 12 and 15 play blind. Nothing a 50ft walk can't solve.
Buckhorn Canyon had a wildfire (High Park?), and the results can be viewed up around this course. The Forrest Service folks had to do their thing and burn parts this property, to save it. This Wisconsiner appreciates the resulting mix of Oldgrowth Pines, Aspen, and surrounding desolation. The Gem that this place IS, becomes that much more relevant when taking it all in.

Rocky Mountain Gem
Pros: Great course nestled back in the Heart of the Rockies. Very secluded course with a good mix of difficulty. Hole 17 is Epic. Very good flow and benches at most(if not all) of the pads. For natural pads, they are in pretty good condition. Great mix of elevation and length. Great design and thought put into this one. Good mix of multiple doglegs and tight fairways with open bomber shots as well.
Cons: The drive from Fort Collins can take an Hour but it is a beautiful drive so not much of a con other than time consuming.
Other Thoughts: The atmosphere at this course is awesome. Very laid back. I've played this course during Colorado Autumn and the scenery is unbeatable. Hole 16 plays straight up a steep mountain incline where at the top you Tee off for Hole 17 which is a Huge bomber shot with a big drop in elevation. Bring drinks and snacks if you plan on playing for awhile because there is no convenience stores for miles(that i know of). If you are anywhere near this course it is definitly worth a stop. You'll need your whole bag for this one.This course easily ranks in my Top 3 played.
