Glenmoor Country Club (Cherry Hills Village, CO)

I had an opportunity to play Glenmoor Country Club this summer and found it quite challenging. The course was designed by Pete Dye and has features you’ll find on many of the courses he’s designed.

To play well here, you have to hit the ball straight. You can be out of bounds or in the weeds quite easily just a few yards off the fairway. I also had some trouble chipping on the hard ground around the greens, but the greens themselves were in fantastic condition and I made more putts than normal. If you keep the ball in play, the course isn’t terribly long and you’ll have manageable approach shots.

One other note, make sure you tee off on hole #1 (across the street from the driving range), not on hole #10 (right next to the driving range) – the tee boxes are not numbered. Luckily for us, the course was not very busy at the time, so we didn’t hold anyone up with our little gaffe.
