Scottsdale, Arizona – Troon Golf, America’s leading management, development, and marketing company specializing in high-end, luxury brand golf facilities, is pleased to announce that for the fourth consecutive year, Colorado Golf Magazine has deemed The Ridge at Castle Pines North the state’s “Number One Daily Fee Golf Course.”
Through a similar polling conducted by Colorado PGA professionals and a panel of golf course raters, Colorado Golf Newspaper awarded top honors to The Ridge at Castle Pines North in two categories: “Number One Daily Fee Golf Course” and the “Toughest Golf Course” with green fees over $50.
“To be recognized as the best facility in Colorado for four years running is a strong testament to Tom Weiskopf’s extraordinary design of this golf course,” noted Dan Budzius, General Manager at The Ridge at Castle Pines North. “Considering the great number of new, high quality golf facilities that have been built in Colorado over the last four years, these accolades are even more meaningful as they indicate we’ve withstood the test of time.”

In what Weiskopf calls his best mountain design, the course features ample fairways marked by prominent rock outcroppings, sculpted bunkers, and gracefully contoured greens.
“We are honored for the recognition given to this beautiful and challenging golf course,” said Troon Golf Executive Vice President, Operations, John Easterbrook, Jr. “The Ridge at Castle Pines North exemplifies our vision of the TROON GOLF EXPERIENCE, so we are especially proud that the facility is regarded so highly in Colorado.”
