COVID-19 Operational Policies to Play Golf

Greetings Golfers,

Foothills Golf Course and Meadows Golf Club are open and have adopted aggressive policies to address health and safety for golf operations based on State and County public health orders.  These operational policies are established to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.  BEFORE ARRIVING FOR YOUR TEE TIME, PLEASE REVIEW THE NEW POLICIES CAREFULLY.

  • Courses will be open on a day-by-day basis, weather permitting.
  • Our pro shop voicemail recordings will be updated daily with open/closed status reports. Foothills Golf Course 303-409-2400  |  Meadows Golf Club 303-409-2250

We ask all patrons to refrain from using a facility if exhibiting any signs of sickness and to self-monitor before arriving.

Tee Times & Payment:

  • In response to issues we have experienced with prepaid tee times, we have eliminated prepay options.
  • Tee times can be made in advance up to 7 days or on the day of play.  It is preferred that you book your tee time online at
  • We will accept cash payments, however for the safety of our employees we prefer that customers pay with a debit/credit card.
  • If your tee time search presents no options, the day’s limit of tee times have been sold out. If you have fewer than 4 players, you will be paired with others to make a group of 4.

Cancellation Policy:

Due to high demand, please cancel tee times 24 hours in advance to release the time to another golfer.
