Cougar Canyon Wins "Best for Resort Lifestyle" by LINKS Magazine

October 23, 2008

Award Recognizes Cougar Canyon's Amenities

Only four months after its grand opening, GOLF Magazine recognized Cougar Canyon Golf Links as one of the "Top Ten Courses You Can Play in the U.S." for 2007. A month later the course received top honors among all new courses in Colorado from Colorado Avid Golfer Magazine. This most recent award, however, recognizes not only the caliber of the course, but also the quality of the community that surrounds it.

LINKS Magazine has acclaimed Cougar Canyon as one of the premier resort communities in the U.S. in the category of "Best for Resort Lifestyle." LINKS Magazine's "America's Premier Properties" 2008-2009 Edition ranked the top 100-plus golf courses and their respective communities in various "Best of" categories such as city living, winter sports, and boating. Seventeen other communities were also recognized by the magazine in the same category of "Best for Resort Lifestyle" including Kapalua Resort in Maui and the Ledges of St. George in Utah. The magazine states that the Premier Properties Guide is "the most trusted, most comprehensive, most authoritative guide to the best golf communities in the United States."

Specifically, the article states that Cougar Canyon "is a pioneer for golf living in the area." In addition to the championship Nicklaus Design course, other community amenities include a town center that encompasses a boutique, 117 suite hotel; resort dining, and a full service spa, all of which are currently under construction. The grand opening of Cougar Canyon Resort and Spa next summer will coincide with the grand opening of the equestrian center as well as with the planting of the first grape vines in Cougar Canyon Vineyards, four acres of an oenophile's paradise that will spread out on the hill behind the hotel. Combine all of this with eight miles of walking trails and 3,000 acres of the community’s own private open space, and you have an active lifestyle enthusiast's delight.

Both Cougar Canyon Golf Links and the surrounding community will also be featured in the November-December issue of GolfViews Magazine in Colorado and the October-December issue of South Central Golf Magazine. The course itself, Cougar Canyon Golf Links, is expected to receive more national attention in the coming weeks and months with an expected national ranking in both GolfWeek Magazine and Golf Digest Magazine.
