Create an itinerary including Shining Mountain Golf Course
What is commonly known today as Pikes Peak was originally named "Shining Mountain" by the Ute Native Americans because of how brightly the sun reflected off of the snow. Minutes from the idyllic town of Woodland Park, Colorado; Shining Mountain is sure to be considered a jewel in the Rocky Mountain state. Woodland Park is nestled among the pines of the Pike National Forest and with over 300 days of sunshine, we enjoy comfortable summers and mild winters. Located at nearly 8500 feet above sea level, this is why we are called "The City Above the Clouds".

The course is 6,478 yards from the championship tees with a par of 70. The course rating is 71.6 and has a slope rating of 136 on bluegrass. The seasons here are mild and the views spectacular, which makes this a must play for your golfing pleasure.

  • The views at Shining Mountain Golf Course on a clear day are spectacular. Don't forget to stop at the bar/restaurant afterward and grab a drink and some wings!

  • Tough, challenging course! Great mountain views and very friendly staff. Only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because EVERY HOLE is cart path only so makes for a longer round of golf. So bring your walking shoes, you will get your steps in! Aside from that, you will be challenged on this puppy (no dogs were hurt during this round of golf..). I lost several sleeves during my two days and two rounds. My advice, go early and grab a bucket of range balls, and when you are done warming up, use the range balls to play your round. People lose SO MANY GOLF BALLS playing this course, they have the BEST selection of range balls I have ever seen! So use them and keep your ProV's tucked away! This one was very challenging but well worth it.
  • One of the worst courses I’ve ever played. It’s clear that there is no money put into ANYTHING out here. Zero course maintenance and horrible cart paths. Missing grass on every green, no difference between the grass in the rough and the fairway. Beautiful area but just a bad golf course. Some fairways are 10 yards wide… that is not real golf. And charging $60 is absolute robbery. Will not be back.
