I have golfed here a few times and it is always challenging and enjoyable. The course is well maintained and the ever changing winds make it a different course every time.
The clubhouse has good food and great people working there. It is always a great experience.
The Gaunlet ate my balls and spit them out! Great course, but lots of lost balls today.
I have been taking a workout class at the Blackstone Country Club so I have limited experience with the club as a member, but more as a user of the facilities.
From what I have experienced the place is beautiful. Nice views. Nice new facilities. The ballroom is mediumish size, as is the pool. The tennis courts are nice and the grounds are well kept. The driving range is at the back of the club and is nice and quiet.
I really like the place! It would be great for any event.
At $1,500 for a membership fee and $179/mo., this is clearly the C. Club value in Denver!
I have upgraded Blackstone from 3 stars to 4 (would give 4.5 if that were an option) as of March 1, 2011 and edited the following review to reflect why:
The golf course and staff are great after the transitional dust has settled. There are new mats at the driving range this winter, and they are nice. This course still plays very slowly during peak times, but 90% of players we have encountered are courteous and patient and that makes the experience positive overall. Hopefully, as the busy season starts, they will keep an eye on the more-than-foursomes (we have seen one 16-some and a couple of 8's and 10's in the past), as they cause major delays and mood swings ; )
The pool: is clearly not meant for adults. It is quite small and overrun with very small children, many of them in waterlogged, saggy diapers. We were told that there is one hour every morning apparently of "adult only swimming", but perhaps they should build another larger pool for adults and leave the existing one for the kiddies??
A final note: the restaurant's food is yummy, the service is good, and items are very reasonably priced.
