Fossil Trace Golf Course

A day at Fossil Trace Golf Club, a two-time Best of Denver winner, is more than just a day on the links – it’s also a trip back in time. This Golden golf course was designed by Jim Engh, and its position at the edge of the foothills is spectacular. But the history of the setting is as stunning as the scenery. The golf course opened in July 2003, approximately 64 million years after the first dinosaurs walked where holes 11 through 15 now sit. Triceratops footprints, as well as other prehistoric creatures’ fossils, can be viewed adjacent to the 12th green. And inside the main doors of the golf course clubhouse is an exhibit that details the rich history of the property, sharing information about the dinosaur tracks and other impressive fossils uncovered on the course.
