Each course has its own personality and unique features.

Lone Tree Golf Course in Lone Tree

The 18-hole, Arnold Palmer-designed par-72 championship course features rolling fairways and greens and offers players incredible views of Denver and the Front Range. With five sets of tees, players can choose tee boxes to match their handicap. New this season, check out hole #6’s new tee area and the redesign of a greenside bunker. Lone Tree offers great practice facilities with a grass tee driving range, large putting green and a short game area consisting of two chipping greens and three bunkers. Improved lighting, new table umbrellas, seat cushions and fire pits all contribute to the patio’s inviting ambiance. Enjoy complimentary live music on the patio on Fridays, 6-9 p.m., and Sundays 4-7 p.m. This fall, we plan to renovate the pro shop to better serve our patrons. Ask about our full-service tournament

service. We can accommodate groups up to 144 players for golf, and 300 for banquets. We’re booking now for the remainder of this season and next year. Call 303.790.0202.

South Suburban Golf Course in Centennial

Play a round against a picturesque mountain backdrop at this regional favorite! South Suburban is a superbly maintained, 18-hole regulation course, with a suburban vibe and setting. Both avid and beginner golfers enjoy playing here. The course features a new short game area, and hole #18 has a new green which will be playable in late spring. A new chipping green and practice bunkers will open midsummer; and a new putting green will open by late fall. The adjacent 9-hole, par3 golf course is a great choice for those who are learning the game, or those with limited time. Beginning in June, golfers and non-golfers alike can partake in complimentary live music on the patio, Fridays and Saturdays, 6-9 p.m. After your game, enjoy drinks and food at the South Suburban Golf Course Bar and Grill, a casual indoor/outdoor restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Dine alfresco on the patio overlooking the golf course.

Littleton Golf Course in Littleton

The par-63 executive, 18-hole course is

a great choice if you’re looking to play a round on a naturally beautiful course. The title may say executive, but the challenge of the course is anything but that. Littleton Golf Course features two par-5s, four par4s, a grass driving range and a practice putting green. Check out the club’s brand new renovated main entrance, with new landscaping and tables, and a new cart staging area. Littleton Golf Course is located adjacent to the South Platte River and the Mary Carter Greenway Trail. After your game, unwind at the Centennial Grill, and peruse the merchandise at the golf and tennis pro shop.

Family Sports Golf Course in Centennial

Family Sports Golf Course features the metro’s only heated and lighted double deck driving range, open year-round, late at night! Golfers will enjoy the increased warmth of new infrared heaters while hitting range balls on cold days or nights. There’s also a new range ball machine. Adjacent to the driving range is an award-winning short game practice area featuring two large practice greens, two bunkers and the ability to hit up to 75 yard-long pitch shots. We also installed a new safety net along the driving range to help protect players on the practice putting green and hole #1. The 9-hole, par-31, executive golf course

is perfect for those short on time, or those wanting to practice their short game. In addition to South Suburban’s PGA teaching staff, GOLFTEC provides individual outdoor lessons to every level of player, from beginner to the serious, competitive golfer, onsite at Family Sports Golf Range. After a round, or a bucket of balls, stop by the Avalanche Grill for a drink or bite to eat. The grill’s outdoor patio offers beautiful views of the mountains and is a great spot to watch the planes take off and land from Centennial Airport. Whichever course you choose, South Suburban’s professional golf staff enjoys helping people learn golf and improve their game. The teaching professionals offer private and group lessons for youth, teens and adults.

Juniors Play Free Program

Kids, ages 17 and under, play golf for free at the golf courses on Saturday and Sunday after 5 p.m. At South Suburban Golf Course, juniors can golf for free after 6 p.m. We encourage youth to get out on the course and experience all aspects of the game.
