About The Club at Rolling Hills
The Club at Rolling Hills is a Private, Member-owned club located in Golden, CO, and was designed by J. Press Maxwell. The Club was originally opened in 1955 approximately one mile east of its current location on what is now Applewood Golf Course. Since 1968, The Club has been in its current location, nestled into South Table Mountain in the Golden Community. Complimenting the Championship Golf Course, the Club offers its membership four indoor/four outdoor tennis courts and associated landscaping as well as an amazing pool area complete with a bar and pool lawn. The Clubhouse overlooks the course offering members casual and fine dining as well as patio seating to enjoy the wonderful Colorado weather. The golf course is comprised of poa/bent greens, blue/rye fairways and tees, and bluegrass roughs. Future projects in the next 2-5 years will be a complete renovation of our bunkers adding capillary concrete liners, conversion of 15 acres of blue grass rough to native areas, and leveling of teeing areas. The Club has recently rebuilt the putting green and chipping area bunkers.
