Gypsum Creek Golf Course

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1997

Gypsum Creek Golf Course: This Pete Dye design, which originally opened as Cotton Ranch Golf Club in 1997, was bought by the town of Gypsum in 2010 and renamed as Gypsum Creek. The layout is spread out over a steep, sage-covered mesa, offering a challenging golf outing as well as spectacular views of the Red Table Mountains.

Several holes are characterised by steep drop offs and tough angles. The signature 15th is a daunting par-5 that exceeds 550 yards from the back tees and is rarely reached in two shots thanks to the prevailing winds.

Did you know?

The nearby town of Gypsum not unsurprisingly takes its name from the soft sulphate mineral of the same name. The mineral forms the basic constituent of many fertilisers, as well as plasterboard for walls and blackboard chalk. A fine-grained variety of gypsum, known as alabaster, has been used over the centuries for sculpture. Gypsum deposits were discovered and mined in this area of Colorado from the late-1800s onward.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
