These next few photos that I will be posting in the next couple of days are from my September trip to Colorado(I played a total of 7 courses during my stay in Colorado). They are shots I took in the outskirts of a prominent Gold Rush town called, Central City.
Ghost Town DG Course was the reason why I decided to make it a town to travel too. The course layout is well thought out with short, but challenging fairways and lots of attentively placed O.B. What really made this my favorite course is the solus feeling you get when you arrive. There is a reason why it’s called Ghost Town.
First of all, you have to call to make a reservation in order to play, so that alone tells you that its a private course. When driving to the location, you pass through the remnants of gold mining factories and beautiful mountain scenery. When you arrive you are greeted by the owner of the course, Brian, stepping out of his house with his tin can cup of morning coffee. He gestures you to follow him into the clubhouse/store where he explains the course layout, the history, and the immense amount of O.B. He has explained his course plenty of times like if it was the palm of his hand, so you better believe he’s got it down to a science. You follow a path to hole one and immediately you are forced to throw with the layout in mind or you will definitely go O.B. As you play the feeling of solitude intensifies and you really feel like you are alone.The quietness, scenery, and presentation of Brian’s design is amazing. I really enjoyed the course and would go again whenever I’m around.
Please play the course if you have a chance. Don’t forget to make a reservation though!
