Ballyneal Golf Club

Private course - for members and their invited guests only.
   Ballyneal Golf Club Est. 2006

Where2Golf says: 

The private Ballyneal Golf Club, located in the open prairie of northeast Colorado, is home to a championship golf course that ranks with the best in the state. Set in the Chop Hills, amidst thousands of acres of rolling native grasslands, this excellently designed inland links-style layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game.

Skilfully crafted by Tom Doak to create the impression of an ancient links layout, the ever-undulating terrain is home to many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging golf holes. The downhill doglegging 7th is lauded as one of the world's best and most scenic short par-4s.

Restricted access: This private course is generally playable only by members and their invited guests.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
