Country Club at Castle Pines Online:
The Country Club at Castle Pines is an 18 hole, championship-calibre Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. With no two holes that run parallel to each other, golfers enjoy spectacular views, woods, and a challenging game. As Jack Nicklaus said, "The Country Club at Castle Pines is an absolutely beautiful course with all its vistas. A person can play The Country Club and feel he’s had a great time no matter what his score, simply because of the views."
Rarely will one encounter a golf course as magnificent as The Country Club. Starting at 7,000 feet above sea level, the first two holes of this par 72 course run dramatically atop a ridge, with Denver’s skyline in the distance. Mountain views include Pikes Peak to the south, Mt. Evans to the west and Long's Peak to the north. The fourth hole takes play through thick stands of Ponderosa pine and scrub oak on sloping terrain. Closing out the front nine, the ninth green is nestled at the base of a rock cliff. A 387–yard par 4 requires and exacting shot to an elevated green.
The back nine begins from an elevated tee and leads players into a magnificent display of natural beauty on holes ten and eleven. Twelve through fifteen open up to natural rolling contours which challenge golfers accuracy and decision-making skill on every shot. The final three holes, a par 5 sixteenth and a par 3 seventeenth, will rival any finishing holes in the country, with eighteen providing an unforgettable conclusion to any round of golf at The Country Club at Castle Pines.
