Trinidad Golf Course Descriptions - Cougar Canyon Golf Links earned the third spot in Golf Magazine's "Top Ten New Courses of 2008". In fact, Golf Magazine, Links, and Golf Week all put Cougar Canyon on their Top 10 Best New List, and it ranks #1 in the state! A Nicklaus Design is behind this well-built treasure. That in itself should tell you plenty! The course sits amongst some 3,000 acres of private, undeveloped conservation land. A par 72 course of 7,669 yards, you'll find yourself playing in arroyos, on mesas, and through valleys within Cougar Canyon. Stop between holes to gaze off at the astonishing vistas of Fisher's Peak, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and the Spanish Peaks! In a true links style, the front 9 holes are diverse as the terrain they're carved into, while the back nine flows through a deep wash, creating some unheard of shot values. Though it's a new course, you'll find it feels very old-school. Perhaps it borrows some of that sentiment from the timeless, rugged beauty it was built upon. One of those beauties is the black sand bunkers - less than 40 of them - keeping the course "minimalist", yet challenging for players of all levels and abilities. Each hole has its own distinctions. That's part of what makes it so well loved. The 16th hole is an island green, and one you'll carry long in your mind, along with the rest of the memories of the wonderful experiences playing Cougar Canyon Golf Links!
