Fossil Trace Golf Course

Tee up near triceratops footprints

Save to my Account

You can play golf where dinosaurs roamed 64 million years ago. Fossil Trace, ranked among the best golf courses in the Denver area, delivers unusual opportunities for golfers of any level.

The Jim Engh design incorporates part of an old quarry where you’ll see the remnants of old clay mining equipment. Fossils of plants and Triceratops footprints are visible near the 12th green, so bring your camera.

Altitude changes, length, water, trees, undulating greens, and numerous bunkers add up to an interesting and challenging par 72 course. Tall sandstone pillars in the 12th fairway necessitate accurate approach shots.
Avoid the 10-foot deep bunkers on the 7th hole. Check the pin placement. The putting green in front of the clubhouse entrance gives an idea of what’s to come.

The clubhouse displays dinosaur footprints and other fossils discovered during the building of the course. Collared shirts and Bermuda length shorts or long pants required.
