Restriction of Start of Play - Golf course staff may determine that it is too dangerous to start play and may close the tee and limit the start of play at any time.
Once You are on the Course - In case of lightning or any other dangerous weather condition, individual golfers already on the course are solely responsible for monitoring weather conditions and deciding if continuation of play is safe. The City of Boulder and golf course staff are NOT responsible for your decision making or safety once you are on the course. It is recommended that as soon as you hear thunder seek the clubhouse, the lowest elevation area or a large enclosed vehicle. If sudden, close-in lightning does not permit evacuation:
- Spread out from your group
- Squat down and tuck your head and cover your ears
- Head for the safest place as soon as immediate threat passes.
If you have questions about this policy, please talk with one of the Golf Course staff. If a player feels unsafe at any time on the golf course, they may come in and request a rain check for future credit on a pro-rated basis for the unplayed holes. Rain checks expire at the end of the calendar year. If the course is unplayable due to weather, or if you arrive and are not comfortable playing due to weather conditions, a full refund will be issued.
Trespassers, dog walkers, bicycle-riders, picnickers, or any other unauthorized person shall not be permitted on the golf premises.
Children between the ages of 6-10 may play when accompanied by a golfer 16 years or older. Players 12 and older may play without a parent/guardian 16 years or older in the group.
Golfers on weekends, holidays and busy weekdays must play in foursomes unless the Manager on Duty/Golf Shop Staff allows golfers to play in smaller groups when play is not busy. The Manager on Duty/Golf Shop Staff will assign all unfilled reservation times the day of play on a first-come first-serve basis.
No fivesomes are allowed.
The driving range, the chipping and putting areas are all open to the public. The driving range closes earlier on Sundays and opens later on Mondays. Please ring the Pro Shop on 303-442-7851 for exact times.
