The City of Westminster manages two award-winning, championship golf courses, each offering a distinct experience. Golf the way nature intended at the Walnut Creek Golf Preserve— an Audubon Certified Signature Sanctuary featuring 215 sustainably-maintained acres with sweeping mountain views and an abundance of wild prairie grasses and wildlife. Or, enjoy the Colorado-style Scottish links layout, targeting players of all levels at Legacy Ridge Golf Course.
