A South Suburban Parks and Recreation course, Family Sports Golf Course showcases a nine-hole, par 31 layout that loops around a two-tier driving range. True to its name, the course caters to all members of the family, including seasoned adults practicing their short game touch, beginning juniors making a smooth foray into the game, and grandmothers looking to back up claims of 350-yard drives. Renovated in 2009, the two-tier driving range invites players to hone their stroke on one of 25 grass tees or 30 tees that are covered, lighted, and heated year-round.
Nestled in a gently rolling valley of the Rocky Mountain foothills, Raccoon Creek takes golfers meandering across 7,045 yards of fairways dotted with scenic water hazards. To compensate for its somewhat sparse tree lines, the course’s fairways and greens are flanked with a multitude of cavernous bunkers that—unlike guessing where the plumber hid the toilet seat—challenges players without sacrificing fun. Glassy waters and sprawling golf-ball beaches wreathe the green at the 17th hole, creating a daunting tee shot that earned it the distinction of the course’s signature hole. For those who prefer to cruise the links in a cozy conveyance, Raccoon Creek’s carts are all equipped with GPS technology, which keeps players abreast of the whereabouts of upcoming greens, intervening hazards, and heist-planning squirrels. A fully stocked pro shop, driving range, and scenic restaurant round out Raccoon Creek’s course-side facilities.
Framed by Rocky Mountain foothills, Deer Creek Golf Club weaves through more than 40 acres of wetlands to form a 7,000-yard layout designed by prolific course architect Scott Miller. Ponds and streams meander through the rolling landscape, presenting water hazards on nine holes, providing a habitat for thousands of native birds, and helping to keep parched golf carts well hydrated. The course showcases numerous shotmaking opportunities, including multiple forced carries and a par-three with a green surrounded by marshland. Before playing their round, golfers can practice their swings at the Club's full-length driving range, warm up their putting stroke at the practice green, or sculpt a sandcastle monument to Chi-Chi Rodriguez in the practice bunker.
