RIVERDALE GOLF COURSES
Riverdale Dunes & The Knolls golf courses provide Denver Colorado with 36 holes of premier public golf that are maintained to private golf club standards.
Upon opening in 1985, the Dunes Course became the top public golf destination in Colorado, as well as the most recognized and decorated public course in the state. If you really really love golf than you probably would like to play golf in Scotland. Now you can get that experience with better weather and much better course conditions and save the air fare on top of that!!
Designed by renowned architects Pete and Perry Dye many of the holes are patterned after legendary courses in Scotland and Ireland. Strategically placed pot bunkers, mounds, water hazards, and of course the signature railroad ties makes this a “One of a kind Golf Experience” in mile high Denver Colorado.

Olivia enjoyed the instruction!
— Charles K. Parent
The camp was wonderful and my boys absolutely loved going every day. They learned a lot and took away some tips that will make them better golfers. I also have a son with food allergies and the team was great and supported him with things he could eat. Thank you so much! We look forward to next year.
