The opening hole of Fossil Trace Golf Course sums things up: Rising from the middle of the fairway, about halfway through the beastly par-five, a strange rock formation juts from the earth. It looks like a middle finger, and it's a warning of what's to come: a unique, sometimes harrowing but always rewarding test of golf. The test continues for 6,800 yards (from the back tees), through the equally challenging par-five 18th, which hugs a lake all the way to the clubhouse. But while the course may take a big chunk of your confidence, it won't take too much from your wallet: Weekend, peak-season greens fees are less than $80 with a cart. And with the Great Depression Part Deux upon us, expect to find some discounts this season.

You do such a great job of detailing the Fossil Trace Golf Course. I for one haven't played there but would love to. Have you ever been to any denver golf courses? If so which one was your favorite? I look forward to hearing which ones you've been to!

I love this golf course. It is a great challenge with many different ways to play each hole. If you enjoy risk/reward golf, this is a must play. The facility is well run and the staff will help you out in any way possible. The food in the clubhouse is also awesome. They always have good beers on tap and plenty of food choices for everyone. Great job Fossil Trace!!!

This award for FTGC is well deserved as this course rocks - every pun intended. Not only is it fun to play but dinner on the deck w/a glass of wine overlooking the course make it the perfect day. Love the Fossil!
