Located in Golden, the Fossil Trace Golf Club has been entertaining golfers since 2003. The course is surrounded by the Rocky Mountain Front Range, which means that the terrain and hills are unlike any other golf course on our list. Fossil Trace is also known for its relics, including prehistoric fossils along the 12th green. There's also an exhibit solely dedicated to the dinosaur fossils if you're interested in learning more.

The Ridge at Castle Pines North

The Ridge at Castle Pines North has been praised and lauded by several publications, including Golf Magazine, Colorado Avid Golfer, and Golf Digest, among many others, and for a good reason. With its open terrain and spacious fairways, The Ridge gives golfers uninterrupted views of Pike's Peak, Mt. Evans, Devil's Head, and downtown Denver.
