The Ridge at Castle Pines North is one of Colorado’s premier public courses, with fairways set out in the foothills of the Front Range. Designed by Tom Weiskopf, the course was literally hewn from a dense forest of oak and pine trees in the late 1990s.
Every course in Castle Pines is a gem, and the one public course, The Ridge is no exception. Two completely different nines. The first half of the course is fairly wide open and winds its way through a housing community, a slight disappointment, but doesn't take away from a fun, challenging golf course. The second nine is what makes this course though. It winds its way through towering pine trees going every direction until you reach the 18th tee and drive from on top of a rock that flanks the back of the 17th green. I firmly enjoyed my experiences here. Undoubtedly one of the best manicured courses, and funnest designs in the Denver area.
