Bear Creek Golf Club

The 18-hole, private golf course at the Bear Creek Golf Club is initially a challenge. Opened in 1985, Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay designed the demanding course. The course’s difficulty stems from the undulating greens and various hazards. The course stretches over 7,000 yards, playing to a par of 72. It provides more than just a tough game of golf; the course also successfully captures the natural beauty of the area. The wildflowers such as Indian Paintbrush and Fringed Sage were kept in tact as well as the indigenous Crested Wheatgrass roughs. Bear Creek requires accurate shot-making and precise strategy rather than sheer strength. Although beginners may find the golf course difficult, it gets easier with practice and the gorgeous terrain is worth it.

Fox Hollow at Lakewood offers three public golf courses, two are played as an 18-hole course and the other is played as a nine-hole course but they are rearranged nearly every day to offer lots of different golfing options. Designed by golf architect Denis Griffiths, the course that opened in 1993 offers beautiful scenery as well as a good game. The Meadow/Links course can offer up to 6,888 yards of golf. The well-kept greens are very large and fast. Fox Hollow at Lakewood’s Meadow/Links course is well-bunkered and water hazards do come into play on some holes since the course runs next to a lovely creek. The golf course also has tall, beautiful trees lining its fairways.

The 18-hole, executive length Homestead Golf Course in Lakewood is really more like a short championship course. The course has a yardage of 5,048 and plays to a par of 65. Denis Griffith designed the links-style course that offers some surprising challenges considering its length. The course features dramatic elevation changes as well as water hazards. The front nine holes and the back nine holes also differ in landscape to offer a truly unique experience. Homestead Golf Course’s front nine has beautiful views of Denver as well as lovely streams and lakes. The back nine has rolling hills and it is abundant with wildlife.
