One of Denver Colorado’s best golf courses may appear to be a shorter than some courses along the Rocky Mountain Front Range but don’t let the scorecard fool you. If you measure the golf course in the same manner as others have, you will find that we are just at 7,000 yards. Why the difference? Fossil Trace uses actual yardages, one pace forward from the middle of the teeing ground while others use one pace forward from the back of the teeing ground (not an official teeing area). This is why the golf course at Fossil Trace Golf Club plays longer than the scorecard states.
