    The Sanctuary Golf Club COURSE Review

    The golf course at the Sanctuary Golf Club was built by a real estate tycoon, who bought a nice patch of wilderness close to Denver and asked architect Jim Engh to create (as in build) the most spectacular golf course in the United States. Which of course, Jim Engh did, with the end result being a true visual feast, which is the short story of the Sanctuary Golf Club. As far as private golfing facilities go, the Sanctuary has it all, starting with its name which tells a lot about the architects philosophy: a top-notch 220 acres of pristine prairie grasses, Ponderosa pines, wildlife and waterfalls, making for a roller coaster of a golf course, which also offers some magnificent views, as it overlooks the majestic front range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

    If youre a big fan of the Lord of the Rings, you may have an idea about how epic playing the Sanctuary Golf Club feels (and looks) like. Situated twenty miles South of the city of Denver, the Sanctuary Golf Club is modern in a sense, i.e. the architect spared no efforts in moving around lots of dirt and trees in order to fit a golf course in a location where skeptics and pessimists said it would be an impossible endeavour. Whats most impressive about Jim Enghs work is that he managed to do so whilst keeping the look unspoiled, as in the golf course blends perfectly with its natural surroundings. The Sanctuary Golf Club is flanked by some forty thousand acres of protected open space, while theres no home clutter to spoil the atmosphere. In other words, this is a true sanctuary for golf aficionados, if it ever was one. Without a doubt, the Sanctuary Golf Club is one of the most spectacular golf courses youll see in your lifetime and playing it is even better. Just try it and thank me later.
