    Course Overview

The city of Arvada built the first two nines at West Woods, the original 18, in 1994. Those two courses - the Sleeping Indian and the Cottonwood - were designed by one of Colorado's best-known golf architects, Richard M. Phelps. Phelps' son, Rick, then laid out our third nine-hole course, the Silo, in 1998-99.

You'll play classic golf in the best sense on these three courses. But each nine has a very different personality. We change the combination of nines that you can play on a daily basis.
