Flatirons Golf Course has a long and illustrious history as Boulder’s premier golf club. Architect William H. Tucker was commissioned by the members of the Boulder Country Club to design the course in 1933. Five years later, with the help of President Roosevelt’s WPA (Works Progress Administration) program, the club relocated to the current location at 57th and Arapahoe. Today, more than 50,000 rounds are played per year at Flatirons Golf Course. More than 1,000,000 rounds have been played since 1986 when the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department took over operations.
The First Tee is an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to kids and teens. The summer programs at Flatirons GC help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing life skills like integrity, respect, and perseverance through the game of golf. And it’s making a difference. Plus, we have FUN!
Flatirons Golf Course & The City of Boulder believe in these values and we are proud to partner with the First Tee in offering our 2021 programs. Golferships (financial aid) is available on request with no questions asked for those that need financial assistance. Talk to Tom Buzbee at 303-442-7851 about scholarship opportunities.
