Haymaker Golf Course
Good course for women
I really liked the forward tee placement and beautiful views from this course. The greens were fast when I played and it was a bit wet in the early morning, so I didn't get the rolls I could have gotten two hours later.
Nice course to walk, although we used a cart. Next time I would walk or try the "golf bikes" .
A bit expensive for a municipal course, but the views and location make it a summertime must play.

Exceptional municipal course in stunning location
It's hard to believe this is a muni, though it's priced like a premium daily fee, which is understandable. There are no bad holes on this golf course, just like there doesn't seem to be any Keith Foster designs that aren't solid. The front nine is more links-style while the back gets really creative. Laid out in a meadows, the course doesn't have a lot of elevation change, but there are certainly some scenic tee shots. I like the variety of holes, too, from very different par 3s to drivable par 4s. Family tees are a really nice touch.

We paired up with a local who knew the course, which was invaluable. Unfortunately he only played 9 holes and we were on our own for the back nine. What a difference not knowing where to hit or where the hazards are. Did not matter though. What gorgeous day on a gorgeous course. The breathtaking scenery of the Yampa valley was worth the trip.

Trouble with Golf Now
The course did not honor my pre-paid Hot Deal time. They said they tried to call me to cancel my time, but never got me. I ended up on the phone with Golf Now until 5 minutes before my tee time. The course eventually let me out at a rate close to what I had booked on Golf Now, but did not accept the pre-payment. Assume that this course has a big problem with Golf Now. Can't advise booking through here.

Very nice course
As a 19 handicapper I was a little concerned about playing Haymaker after reading the reviews. Luckily I got paired with Dave, a member, who has been playing this course for years. His advice saved me many shots during the round. If you can hit a 200 yard drive straight, you probably will do well. The course was in very good condition and I only had a couple of bad lies in the fairway. The greens were in great shape and putted true. The club house staff was very helpful to a first timer. I'm not sure I would pay the regular rate, since I am not a resident, but the Golfnow rate make this round very enjoyable.
I would like to play here again.

This course is fun with many challenging holes.
Very nice layout with generous landing area from all tees. It has a links type style with fairways lined with natural grasses. Keep it on the fairway, or bring lots of balls. Greens have subtle breaks that do not break as much as the eye perceives.

Great links course
This is a very good links style course. Pace of play was okay but could be better / faster. Food in the bar after was good and price was good as well
