Among the Best

Oldham, Tidwell, 11 Colorado courses earn national/international honors

By Gary Baines – 1/29/2020

In the last month, there’s been no lack of recognition for Colorado on national/international golf “best-of” lists.

Eleven courses based in the Centennial State were named among the best courses in the U.S. in a couple of categories by Golfweek. And a Colorado instructor and golf-fitness trainer also earned best-of honors by national publications/organizations.

Perhaps most notably from a sheer numbers standpoint, Golfweek included seven Colorado layouts among its best 200 residential courses in the U.S., with two ranked in the top 10 and five in the top 75. Colorado Golf Club in Parker, which in the last decade has hosted a Senior PGA Championship, a Solheim Cup and a U.S. Mid-Amateur, leads the way for the Colorado contingent at No. 4.

Here are the rundowns for all the best-ofs, starting with the individual recognition. In the Golfweek course lists, besides the Colorado picks, we included the No. 1 selection overall.
