Foothills GC, Littleton. Dick Phelps, 1971.

This course will forever live in my memory as the one where I made an 11 during a high school tournament, but don’t let that put you off.

This is a pleasant course with no homes around on a sloping piece of land that makes for decent golf. It can be challenging, with ponds and creeks and a few small greens, but you shouldn’t worry about making double digit scores. It was the sixth hole—a par 5 that twice plays over a stream—that got me, but note that I managed my score without even going in that hazard.
