Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



Country Club of the Rockies

Edwards, CO Private

Overview

A Jack Nicklaus design in the beautiful mountains of Colorado, the Country Club of the Rockies offers beautiful mountain views without arduous elevation changes. Despite being 7,400 yards from the tips, the course is not that excessive in length, thanks to it sitting 7,200 feet above sea level. Originally built with very pronounced slopes, after a decade of use the putting surfaces were softened for playability. The course includes many Nicklaus trademarks, including the split-fairway second, an 100-yard bunker on the par-5 seventh that guards the layup area, and a carry over Eagle River at the 12th on the approach. Overall Country Club of the Rockies is an incredibly beautiful course that meanders through the Rockies, while still boasting the difficulty that is a hallmark of Nicklaus' design career.
