    I have been playing this course for more than 20 years, in both its iterations as a public and private course. Since it became private, Lake Valley has improved immeasurably, from all aspects of the golf experience. The course is maintained in impeccable fashion and the staff is warm, welcoming, professional and helpful. I've hosted dozens of guests, many of whom are serious golfers, and all have had very positive things to say about the course.

    The Persimmon Grille is a jewel. The low-key, casual vibe can be shared by everyone...members and non-members alike. The atmosphere is bested only by the food, which is delicious and reasonably priced.

    For anyone looking for a great course, with fun people and an excellent value, I highly recommend Lake Valley Golf Club.

    This is a hidden gem that is fun and challenging to play, with a welcoming staff and friednly, casual membership. The Press Maxwell design has aged well, and you will be challenged by a variety of shots. The greens are very subtle and more complex than first meets the eye. For anyone in hte Boulder area looking for a great golf club value, look no further!

    Stunning views, a challenging layout, and amazing course conditions. I've been a member here for about 7 months, and I absolutely LOVE it. It's become my home away from home, and I'm out at the course almost everyday. The staff are incredible, the greens roll perfect, and it truly is a "golfers" golf course. If you're in Boulder, this is a "must-play" and if you're looking for an affordable course to join as a member, I highly recommend Lake Valley.

    Great course with great staff in the pro shop and in the grille/bar. Entire experience is about golf and playing a course that is carefully maintained. The greens are true Press Maxwell specials with challenging reads without the need for huge undulations. I've seen scratch golfers challenged by the greens, without the benefit of local knowledge.

    Definitely a bargain if you're looking for a club that is all about golf and has a great member base that becomes your social family!

    I'm not sure where Golf Now gets its information but Lake Valley Golf Club has been private since 1999. While it is a true Press Maxwell gem and always in excellent in shape it is not accessible except as a guest, through reciprocal play from another private Club or by participating in one the few charity fundraisers the Club hosts each year.
