Best Golf Course - 2004
Let's just agree that any golfing experience is enhanced by the presence of a genuine triceratops footprint etched into the rocks dotted about the course. This summer will mark the first anniversary of the opening of Fossil Trace, the city of Golden's entrance into the lucrative business of civic golf. The public course ($36 per eighteen holes for Golden residents, $41 for Jeffco residents, $46 for everyone else) has garnered numerous awards for its unique setting and use of local features. Most notable: the twenty-foot high sandstone rock formations pocked with fossils that ring the twelfth hole.
