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.

Southglenn Country Club -- Nice Place to Learn
Review by: Rick Chapman This 9 hole walking course is very playable. It has two difficult holes (over 200 yards) and seven holes ranging from 95 yards to 160 yards. The greens are flat, generally soft, roll well, and will hold an average shot, but have a tencancy to be a little inconsistent for putting due to the high volume of play. The course record is 23 and the membership is diverse with respect to age and gender. A typical round can be played in 90 minutes or less. No electric carts are allowed.
