Indian Peaks (Lafayette, CO)

Indian Peaks Golf Course is a short drive north from Denver in Lafeyette. The course was in fantastic shape, the best I’ve played since last summer.

The course has a mix of tough driving holes and some wide fairways. I didn’t spring for the $5 course book, but I wish I had. I put one ball in the water on 9 because I didn’t realize how far the water wrapped around the hole. The greens had been punched a week before, but were rolling pretty well.

This course uses a 1, 2, 3 pin position system instead of colored flags. On the scorecard, the sections of the greens are marked with a number and all flags are in the same numbered area. It didn’t matter much to me since I use my rangefinder for distances anyway.

A few holes were close to busy roads, but overall the round was relaxing and quiet.

There is a nice grass driving range, putting green and chipping area to warm up in. All looked to be in good condition. The range had nice target flags.

We went to grab lunch after our round and the lady running the bar/restaurant was not very polite or helpful. The burger was decent though.

I didn’t play particularly well, but I did enjoy the round and would go back.
