Great Value and a Good Time!
If you’re in the market for a new course or a great value, spend some time with one of the four South Suburban Parks and Recreation District courses this year.
Several years ago, the voters in the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District decided to add value to their community by voting to slightly increase their taxes so the District could make improvements, additions and upgrades. The results have been phenomenal. Parks, sports fields, walking paths, tennis courts, recreation centers, and yes, the golf courses, have all seen major improvements thanks to great leadership by the SSPRD Board!
South Suburban can host new players to four SSP&R courses—Lone Tree, South Suburban Golf Course, Family Sports Golf Course and the Littleton Golf and Tennis Club. These courses can accommodate a player of any caliber, experience level, or price point.
Some of the improvements made to its courses by SSPRD since the tax increases windfall include:
- Lone Tree, a tournament-level, Arnold Palmer-designed course with five sets of tees, this year serve golfers with a completely remodeled, well-stocked golf shop with an entirely new look and new tee boxes on several holes.
- South Suburban’s 18-hole Dick Phelps design features some of the state’s fiddliest greens—including a newly built one on 18 that brings the lake into play. Help with negotiating those putts and chips now comes in the form of a spanking new short-game area, as well as the popular 9-hole par 3 course. South Suburban also has a new club house and bar.
- Family Sports—which complements its 9-hole, par-31, executive course with a superb practice area and lessons from its PGA pros and those from GOLFTEC—has outfitted every bay on its double-deck, open-late-all-year driving range with new heaters “to upgrade player comfort.”
- Littleton Golf & Tennis Club, a par-63 executive course in name only, continues to pride itself on tremendous conditioning and female- and family-friendliness, while offering challenge of tree- and water-lined fairways.
Give South Suburban Golf Courses a try this year. It will be day well spent.
