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.

A Date Has Been Set!!!!

Ok.....I'm finally going to answer the question that everyone has been asking......When is the golf course going to open for play?

Well, we have decided that the grow in has been coming along so well, and that the course is in such great shape that we will be able to open for public play a few weeks earlier than the original anticipated date of June 1st, 2009.

"The stand of grass that has been produced at CommonGround is absolutely amazing!"
said Eric Iverson of Renaissance Golf Design. "Tracy and his crew have done a spectacular job and should be congratulated. There is really no reason the course couldn't be open for play now."

Thanks Eric! Are you trying to give Tracy and I a heart attack?

Well other than the fact that we still need to get the starter clubhouse built, mark & measure the course, acquire carts, hire staff, define operational policies, etc. the course actually is in good enough shape to accomodate play. With that being said, in order to put our best foot forward, we still feel that there are a couple of areas that will need some extra growing time prior to opening -- primarily being the areas that were washed out 3 times at the tail end of construction in August.

When taking everything into consideration, we have decided to open for public play on:
