We know it’s a bit of drive (but a lovely one) from the metro area to Red Feather Lakes in the hills above Fort Collins, but $50 for green fees and a cart is hard to beat. That’s the deal through the end of September at the Golf Club at Fox Acres. At 8,300 ft., it boasts a scenic driving range and 460 acres of natural features and holes that provide several elevation changes, 15 shimmering lakes and more than 100 sand traps.
The course is designed to entice the inner golfer to help take the game to the next level. It has been described as a thinking golfer’s course from start to finish and managers like to point out that this is “just fine since there is enough peace and quiet around to allow for a good think.” 1700 County Road 67J, Red Feather Lakes, 970-881-2574.
