Cougar Canyon
Cougar Canyon Golf Links is the only Nicklaus Design golf course to capture the scenic drama of this beautiful landscape where the Southwest meets the Rocky Mountains. It is surely one of the most unique links course golf experiences in the country, and will soon offer an incomparable resort lifestyle in the wide-open West. No doubt it's a rare breed. The par 72, 7,669 yard course winds through valleys, mesas and arroyos of Cougar Canyon, affording players breathtaking views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, the Spanish Peaks and Fisher's Peak. The front nine, in a true links style, is as diverse as the terrain it rides, while the back nine follows a deep wash that creates amazing shot values that are unique to Colorado golf. The course truly has the feel of an old-school course, like it has been here for a hundred years. Cougar Canyon features unique black sand bunkers that are a tribute to Trinidad's rich mining heritage. With fewer than 40 bunkers, players of all skill levels will enjoy this minimalist course. While the fairways are generous, the greens large and the number of forced carries low, the course's tee boxes culminate in a challenging but enjoyable experience. The golfer will always remember the 16th hole, a captivating island green that will generate excitement for all players.  Book tee times below!
