The par-72 Castle Pines Golf Club is 7,559 yards from the championship tees. This course's fairways are very narrow and lined with pine trees. The course is set in the foothills of the mountains, so you should expect some uneven lies. Some of the large greens are multi-tiered and elevated. Water hazards (lakes and streams) come into play on six holes. The real test on the course is hole #10, a 485-yard, par 4, requiring an approach shot measuring over 210 yards over water to the green. "Golf Digest" rated this course 48th best out of "America's 100 Greatest Courses" in 1995-96, and 44th best for 1997-98. The same publication rated it as the 2nd "Best in State" course for the years 1995 through 1998. "GOLFWEEK" ranked it 9th among "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 1997, 12th for 1998 and 23rd for 1999. "GOLF Magazine" selected it 87th among the "Top 100 Courses in the U.S." for 1997.
