South Suburban Golf Course
What a treat.
This is one of my favorite courses when I was just stating to play golf. First time I'd been back since I retired. It was still as tough, and tougher and had nothing to do with age... I hope. But, i took my golfing partner, and we had a ball. Teamed up with a golfer headed for a Vegas tournament and he appeared to be as challenged as we were. And for the fun of it we joined him in hitting from the Blue tees. I used to love the Blue tees. But my partners first time, We really had a blast the whole day.. Price fit our fixed income and when we finished I felt like we owed more than we paid. What a wonderful treat. Thanks so much

This course is like playing in the mid-west. Greens are very undulated, lucky for me I was below the hole most of the day.
The food was great, good beverage deals and good course conditions for being march in Colorado. I was treated like a member! Good job South Surburban!

Ok place to play as it is near but, the attitude of the staff is not good
This place is very close to me and while I have many good memories of playing the Par 3 with my son, I am only heading for the big course from now on only when I am really short on other options. Time again the staff here and at South Suburban courses in general have a bad attitude. In my only round of the year here, we had some guy that works there playing in the group behind us constantly yelling about something or another that was not to his liking when our play and pace was just fine. While I do like the course in general, the only thoughts I have now are of this guy and other attitude ridden people that work there so, I have many other good options that I will choose from in Golfnow

Well Maintained, Slow Pace
Nice course, greens are not forgiving but I didn't mind that. Incredibly slow pace of play, it looks like there are tons of retired people in the area that play there and they all walk. If you give this course a try be prepared to wait around to hit your shots.

Fun layout, great conditions, incredibly difficult and fast greens with a couple unfair pin positions

The front nine was 3+ hours alone with no ranger. Need I say more?

A nice course that requires thoughtful play
To begin with, the course is in very good shape, as with most decently maintained courses in Colorado this year. It is amazing what regular late summer rain does for courses. The fairways were well drained but I did have a few plugged lies due to rain the day before my round. Greens were somewhat fast but not very smooth, making them tougher than they already were.
The course requires some thought to play well. There are several holes with serpentine fairways that punish you if you do not think through the next two shots on a hole. A par 5 that plays around 450 makes you think that being on in two is a real possibility. However, if you take driver off the tee box, you will be disappointed to find your ball most likely in a low gully area that has a decent stream at the bottom about 265 yards out. It is completely hidden from view. The greens are one of the courses most fierce defenses. There are no really flat putts over 30 feet on these greens. Being pin high on most greens is going to give you knee knocker putt coming back down hill with ridges and berms. Two holes had pin locations stuck on the side of very steep ridges on the green, meaning that even 5 footers can be missed badly.
Several fairways do not have flat lies so make sure you play tee shots accurately to the high side because they will roll downhill quite a bit. The pro shop is well stocked. There was no cart concession operation on a Saturday.
