Fox Hollow Golf Course features 27 championship holes with three very different nine hole layouts.  The coures is consistently ranked among the best in Colorado and is one of the most popular public courses in Colorado.  (Click on the photo to enlarge)  Designed by Dennis Griffiths, it was built inside Bear Creek State Park along Morrison Road. The 27 hole Fox Hollow and the 18 hole short course at The Homestead were created for Lakewood and Jefferson County golfers.    Three separate nines are known as Canyon, Meadow and Links. Play is rotated among the nines under a plan that allows maximum utilization. Nine-hole play is possible in the morning and after 2:30 p.m.  Canyon is the most popular nine since it has lots of elevated tee boxes and water. The best known hole (pictured here) is #5, a 445 yard, par four. It requires a drive from an elevated tee box over the canyon to a small landing area. The second shot is back across the narrow canyon to the green.  The Meadow nine has water on most holes as well as a waterfall feature. The Links runs to the highest point of the course but has few trees. The rolling fairways, larger greens and more bunkers to add to the difficulty. Tee times can be made seven days in advance by Jefferson County residents and six days in advance by non-residents. 13410 West Morrison Road (West of Kipling) 303-986-7888   www.lakewoodgolf.org
