The Ridge at Castle Pines North

414 Castle Pines Pkwy., Castle Rock

Former PGA Tour great Tom Weiskopf seems to have a knack for designing mountain courses and The Ridge at Castle Pines is a prime example. Located just minutes outside of Denver in Castle Rock, The Ridge is nestled into towering pine forests and offers two distinctly different nines. The front nine on this 6,939-yard layout is closed in by homes, but features some thrilling holes, like the downhill par-four ninth that sets up unobstructed views of Pikes Peak. The more secluded back nine runs through dense pines and outcroppings. Consistently rated the "Best Course to Hold an Event" by Colorado AvidGolfer magazine, The Ridge also offers top-notch dining, service and one of the best clubhouses in the state.

Riverdale Dunes Golf Course

13300 Riverdale Rd., Brighton

Pete and Perry Dye crafted Riverdale Dunes, which is located in the northern suburb of Brighton. What the course lacks in dramatic tee shots and scenery, it makes up for in strategy and solid design.

Located in Larkspur, 30 minutes south of Denver, The Golf Club at Bear Dance was rated the "Best Public or Resort Course" in the Denver region for 2008 by Colorado AvidGolfer 's expert panel.

Bear Dance is also home to the Colorado PGA Historical Museum.

Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks

2929 Golden Eagle Rd., Silverthorne

Colorado AvidGolfer 's panel ranked the Raven the "Best Public or Resort Course (Mountains)." Competition for this honor has been increasingly fierce as courses keep popping up in the high country, but the Raven is consistently at the peak. The 2000 Hurzdan/ Fry/Lehman layout features some of the state's most inspiring mountain panoramas and dramatic holes, like the downhill, par-three eighth. Located an hour west of Denver, the Raven at Three Peaks is one of Colorado's premier mountain golf courses.

The Golf Club at Redlands Mesa

2325 W. Ridges Blvd., Grand Junction

It's a bit of a drive from Denver (about two hours), but it's worth the day trip to experience this Jim Engh masterpiece that's woven into red crags and canyons between downtown Grand Junction and the Colorado National Monument. Dizzying tee boxes and wild fairway and green contours combine to make Redlands Mesa an unforgettable golf experience.

Broadmoor Golf Club

1 Lake Ave., Colorado Springs

With a trio of world-class courses flanking an august five-star hotel, The Broadmoor is easily the most luxurious golf resort in Colorado­-and arguably one of the best in the country. Stay for a few days to experience each course along with all the amenities and superb restaurants this historic getaway has to offer. Originally crafted by Donald Ross in 1917 and combined with Robert Trent Jones' 1965 design, the 7,275-yard East Course is one of only a dozen North American and Caribbean resort courses to receive a five-star rating from Golf Digest. The West Course, which is also a Ross-Jones hybrid, is considerably shorter than the East (6,954 yards) and features more doglegs and steeper elevation changes. The recently remodeled Mountain Course has a more modern design and reaches a whopping 7,552 yards. The Broadmoor was the site of two U.S. Amateur Championships, five NCAA Championships and the 1995 U.S. Women's Open, just to name a few. It will also host this year's U.S. Senior Open and the 2011 U.S. Women's Open.
