King's Deer Golf Club

Yesterday Denny and I played a round of golf at the King's Deer Golf Club in Monument, CO.  In the summer this would be a links course, but winds and recent rains and snow run off had made the course a bit boggy and battered so the wild rough wasn't too much of a problem for us.

Notice Pike's Peak in the background.  Nice, huh?  The course is laid out among the housing development, but as you can see in the photos you don't have to worry too much about hitting any of the houses as they are set well away from the fairways.

Playing from the blue tees (yellow, blue, white and red) the course is 6168 yards long with a rating/slope of 70.3/124.  For the women playing from the red tees it is 5054 yards long with a rating/slope of 70.0/129.  There are a couple of holes where water comes into play and several greens protected by sand traps so it can be quite a challenge, especially with gusting winds as we had yesterday.  Visually, the course is stunning when you look towards the mountains and there are some gorgeous homes on the course.


This one had its own separate two story mother-in-law residence next to it.
I was able to make tee times online on the golf course's web page and for the two of us to play 18 holes with an electric golf cart it cost $50 plus tax.  We paired up with a nice young couple who live in the area and except for the howling winds, had a great day on the course.  I'm sure we'll come back someday and play it again.

Wow, the view of Pikes Peak is way cool. You know of course that Dog the Bounty Hunter lives in Monument. Just look for all the black SUV's....hehe
