Ranked #10 "Best New Affordable courses in the Country" Golf Digest

Located in the eastern Denver suburb of Aurora, the Homestead at Murphy Creek is a 1999 product that embraces a combination of modern sophisticated design with rustic, rural accents. This prairie links features spacious fairways, but the emphasis is on strategy, as each is dotted with large, sprawling bunkers and framed in nasty native roughs that emit a golden glow in the afternoon sun. Farm-style buildings, an old barn and antique farm implements scattered about the property lend an authentic, natural atmosphere to the setting. An award-winning practice facility enhances the experience. In 2001, Golf Digest ranked "the Murph" one of the Top 10 New Affordable Public Courses in the U.S. In 2004, Golf for Women ranked it in the nation's Top 50 Courses for Women. The 2004 Zagat Survey of America's Top Courses praised its "noteworthy par-3s and par-4s."
