Featured Golf Course Review:
Conquistador Golf Course -- Old and new Press
Review by: Adam Clayman With a decade between construction of the two seperate nines, this course is a time capsule in green construction and indirectly, golf course design philosophy. The front nine greens, built in '61, hug the land and were built by the son of a famous architect, Press Maxwell. Press's pa, Perry, is responsible for some great courses among them Prairie Dunes in Hutchinson Ks. Enjoyable, walking golf course at elevation, is a nice change from the cart path climbing monstosities built today. A tree removal program and recapturing some old fill pads, would make this hidden gem really shine.

Eaton Country Club -- Eaton CC
Review by: Loveland Golfer Eaton CC is not a difficult course, but it is lots of fun to play. The farmland setting is extremely peaceful and the view of the front range is beautiful. The best and most challenging part of the course is (are?) the wonderful greens - huge, smooth, and contoured. If they're cut down, do everything in your power to stay below the hole!! Although a private club, Eaton hosts several open tournaments a year and Rick Cole and his staff are most welcoming. All-in-all, a great place to play!
