The opening hole at Fossil Trace has been voted the #1 starting hole in Colorado numerous times since the course opened in 2003. A well placed driver off the tee to “the launch pad” will give you the option to layup with a middle iron to a generous landing area or go for the green in 2. However, the opening near the green is very narrow, protected by a deep “muscle bunker” to the left, and a village of cottonwood trees to the right. In either case your second shot will travel towards Table Mountain, and over the chimney incinerator which remains intact from the 1940s. Hole #1 has proven to be one of the most fun and interesting holes on the entire golf course.
