Red Rocks Country Club near Denver completes course renovation, adds huge practice putting green

Red Rocks Country Club in Morrison, Colorado – just southwest of Denver – has reopened its golf course after a renovation by Kevin Atkinson of Atkinson Design Group and Landscapes Unlimited.

The greens, tees and bunkers were rebuilt throughout the private 6,800-yard course, and Landscapes Unlimited oversaw grassing, irrigation and work to the cart paths. All the efforts were part of a multi-phase program within a master plan.

One major addition was a 45,000-square-foot putting green near the clubhouse that serves as a 19th-hole and gathering spot.

“Collaborating with Kevin and Red Rocks’ team to reimagine the course layout, construction and infrastructure resulted in a stout golf experience for members and guests,” says Dave Linngren, vice president of the West Region for Landscapes Unlimited, a Nebraska-based firm that works in course development, construction and renovation.  “Each hole requires strategic management but is neither designed nor constructed to unfairly bite golfers.”
