The Mulligan

Holyoke, Colorado
Opened 2017

A 12-hole par-three course at Ballyneal, the course was conceived as the best way to make use of the club's remaining water rights.  Ballyneal is a destination club, and some members and visitors needed a less taxing alternative than walking another full 18 holes to round out their day.  So, we took some of the dunes that we had originally passed over as being too severe for full-size golf holes, and routed a series of shorter holes, taking the liberty to build a few wild, natural greens that no one would let us build on a regulation 18.  I've always said that the main course at Ballyneal might be the most fun course we have ever built, but the Mulligan has surpassed it - it's a riot to play with friends and family, and it's at a small enough scale that golfers of all abilities can get have fun out there.
