Colorado Avid Golfer Magazine's "Best New Course in Colorado" in 2007

March 01, 2008

Calling anything "the best" invites challenges and disagreements. In the case of golf courses, what makes one better than another can largely depend on how well you scored there. But determining the state's best courses requires a bit more objectivity. You have to factor in difficulty, service, pace of play, hole variety, design and conditioning. And let's not forget the visual elements. We solicited opinions from the leading players from the Colorado PGA, Colorado Golf Association, Colorado Women's Golf Association and select avid golfers. Here's what they said:

BEST NEW COURSE

Winner: Cougar Canyon Golf Links (Trinidad)
Like the trip to Trinidad itself, this Nicklaus Design creation requires a long drive or two. Clocking in at 7,709 yards from the tips, Cougar Canyon insists as much on accuracy as on length. Semi-blind approaches across washes, chasms and barrancas, shots from black sand bunkers, and putts on topsy-turvy greens define an experience that gets more inspired with every hole.
