Spring Is Finally Here And It’s Time To Tee Up In Parker
Parker is an amazing city in the Spring time and with this beautiful weather what better way to celebrate then hitting the golf course! There are three stunning golf courses that call Parker home.
Black Bear Golf Club
11400 Canterberry Parkway
Parker, CO 80138
Black Bear opened as “Canterberry Golf Course” in 1996 and was designed by architect Jeff Brauer. Just blocks from historic downtown Parker, the 18 hole championship golf course is one of the most distinctive courses in the Rocky Mountain region. More than 200 feet in elevation changes create dramatic views from Pikes Peak to Longs Peak.
In addition to the course, Black Bear offers members and guests a full driving range, practice putting and chipping greens, an indoor hitting bay and simulator, club fitting and repair center, and a staff of PGA professionals offering instruction for players of all levels.
Colorado Golf Club
8000 Preservation Trail
Parker, CO 80134
Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw designed this Championship Course at Colorado Golf Club, they envisioned a strategic and natural layout capable of testing golfers of the very highest ability and hosting major championships. They succeeded on all levels. Golfers of all skill levels will enjoy the challenges encountered on the Championship Course, which features multiple lines of play and approach.
The course opened to international acclaim in 2007. T&L Golf named it one of the world’s top 10 new courses that year, and GOLF Magazine named it the top new private course of the year and one of “10 to Watch” worldwide. In 2010, Colorado Golf Club hosted the 71st Senior PGA Championship, won by Tom Lehman. In 2013, the course will test the top women golfers from the U.S. and Europe in The Solheim Cup matches.
The Championship Course stretches up to 7,604 yards and plays to par-72.
The Pinery Country Club features 27 holes of scenic, challenging golf. Having 27 holes allows events and maintenance functions to take place on nine holes without impacting or eliminating Member play on the other courses. The three distinct nines each have their own unique character and offer the following highlights:
- The Mountain- nine features dramatic elevation changes, scenic vistas and play amongst mature Ponderosa Pines on several holes.
- The Lake nine- offers the most spectacular views. It climbs from the Clubhouse past Bingham Lake to the 5th green and 6th tee where you can see the entire front range from Pike’s Peak to Long’s Peak. From there, the Lake course tumbles down into the Valley Nine.
- The Valley nine- is a links style layout in a high-plains setting. This nine has the highest slope rating of the three and features the diabolical 3rd hole, certainly the most challenging hole at The Pinery.
