CommonGround Golf Course

CommonGround Golf Course is a new Tom Doak designed facility scheduled to open in the spring of 2009.

The facility will be the home of the CGA & the CWGA, and will be an affordable public facility built to support the mission of both organizations to "...represent, promote, and serve the best interests of golf in the state of Colorado".

The facility will include a world class 18 hole Championship Golf Course, a short course devoted to Junior Golf development, and a full service practice facility.

Meet Echo.......

CommonGround's Director of Goose Chasing! Through hard work and an unmatched enthusiasm, Echo (Bobby M's Border Collie) has become a valued member of the CommonGround team. Her main duty is oversee goose control and keep them from eating the grass seed and leaving "moveable" (or in some cases immoveable) obstructions on the greens!

As everyone in the state knows, the weather has been unbeatable which means that the grass is still growing. And obviously the longer we can grow grass this fall, the better. The city of Aurora has approved our construction plans for the Starter Clubhouse, and Calcon is in the process of securing the necessary permits to begin construction. The Men's Club has set tenatitve event dates for 2009. I will post the dates once we have finalized them (for information regarding how to join the Men's Club, please email me at Finally, we have hired a professional photographer to finally take some really good photos of the course, and everything else is right on schedule.

As we move into the offseason for golf, I am going to begin only updating the blog a couple of times per month rather than on a weekly basis. Currently I am working on developing an email database to begin sending out a monthly newsletter once we are in a position to do so (probably after the first of the year). If you would like to be included as part of the database, please let me know.

For this weeks photos, Echo and I concentrated primarily on the Kid's Course so we could provide a perspective of the layout. For this weeks photos, click here: September 29th Photos

Have a great week, and as always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
