What an interesting course! The two 9's are vastly different, the back being a little less challeging. The front is sort of a square, the first 3 holes have the same body of water in play on them, don't slice on your tee shot! The back 9 is more traditional. Straght aways however is surrounded by houses. One of the par 3's is over water entirley. One thing I noticed, there is a ton of tall grass and nature so finding your ball can be hard if it goes astray. The course was beatiful greens were very nice, very puttable, and fairways were in excellent condition. Hole 18 is a par 5 and is entirely along the driving range, so don't slice or you'll donate, plus many range balls along the fairway, if in Greeley check this course out!

Let me start by saying this is one of my home courses. Boomerang will offer a challenge to golfers of all skill levels with two very different, very distinct 9's. A high handicap golfer should bring an ample reserve of golf balls to feed the many carp habitats. A low handicap golfer should move back to the tips to enhance your experience.
You will want to arrive at the course early to warm up, because the most difficult part of the golf course is the first 4 holes. The first 4 can can put a put a VERY sour note on your golf outing if you are not very, very carful.
For all you high handicap players use your reserve supply of golf balls first, because the first 4 holes all have water on the right side from tee green to collect those new golf balls that are designed to go further, straigter, and stop quicker. And for you low handicapers: I know how losing brand a new $4 golf ball really sucks.
Once you get past the first 4 however, it's smooth sailing on rest the front nine with the exception of 8, which is a long par4 with one of the biggest greens on the course and 9 which again has water lining the right side and likes to gulp up wandering shots.
The back nine however will make you feel like a golfer again, with shorter,more forgiving holes. The back nine is your opportunity to get back some of those strokes that may have gone swimming away from you on the front. Both par5's on the back are reachable in two, and all the greens on the back are flatter allowing you to be more aggressive with your putt(s).
The course is well maintained for a links course. The very long tee boxes (some up to 150yds)are cut short and for the most part are flat which reduces your options of blame. Fairways are a little narrow, but will improve your distance considerablly if you can hit them. The rough is normally** very manageable with two cuts and may just save your ball from going in the water (I say normally, because if the superintendent wanted, he could make this course unbelievably hard by letting the rough get nasty). Ask the folks who tried US OPEN qualifying a few years back). The greens are really big and pretty fast, but they roll pretty well (so PLEASE don't forget to fix your ball marks). Yardage is plentiful and it is marked on most all of the sprinkler heads (there are some humurous ones like the "You Wish" marker on 18 if you can find them). For those of you riding, last years new Yamaha cart fleet were also equiped with yardage books in them.

Normally very easy to get a tee time
