3050 Illinois St
Golden, CO 80401-6033, United States

Fossil Trace GC gets its name from the prehistoric fossils and remnants of triceratops dinosaurs that roamed this territory roughly 64 million years ago. The clubhouse includes a display of this fascinating history, along with some (slightly) more recent clay mining equipment used in the last century-plus.

The course itself is a Jim Engh design that opened in July of 2003, on the western edge of the Denver metropolitan area. Marketing hype aside, Fossil Trace is widely considered one of the better public-access courses in all of Colorado.

Regular season non-resident walking rates are $58 weekdays and $62 weekends. Junior, senior, and Jefferson County resident rates are lower, as are the off-season fees.
