In 1998 Saddle Rock Golf Course was recognized as one of the America's Top 10 Best New Courses by Golf Digest. Ten years later this top notch Aurora public course continues to live up to it's reputation. Saddle Rock Golf Course is a long, high-plains, links-style course and challenging. Even the best players find a challenge in negotiating native areas, creeks, trees and rolling diversity. The course is high and the panoramic views of the front range are among the best in metro Denver.
Saddle Rock Golf Course is a public course so the fees are quite reasonable. Players can enjoy either 9 or 18 holes of play. A cart is recommended (by me) this is a long and tough course to walk.
Residents are eligible to receive a special reservation card allowing them to book tee times seven days in advance. As with most community golf courses, residents also get discounted play.
Saddle Rock Golf Course is conveniently located at 21324 E. Briarwood Drive, Aurora, CO. 80016. To get there from I-25, take Arapahoe Road east, look for the entrance to the golf course on the left after crossing Liverpool.
