Canongate Colorado is More Than Just Private Golf
Those who belong to Canongate may know the name was selected for a club that opened on the south side of Atlanta, Georgia in 1965. Canongate established new ground in golf at that time with a vision of providing a membership experience that was high quality, yet affordable, embracing more golfers.
The Canongate concept gives members private club privileges for a modest entry fee and low monthly dues—offering incredible value. Canongate is also known for its unique reciprocity that allows members to play all courses in the portfolio, conveniently located near each other. It’s like joining multiple private clubs for the price of one.
Today, Canongate provides this membership experience at 23 clubs in the Atlanta area, 5 in the Houston area, and now at Blackstone Country Club in Aurora, and Black Bear Golf Club in Parker.
Membership at Canongate also provides the entire family with access to an array of benefits and amenities, along with the area’s top instruction, camps, leagues and member associations.
At Blackstone, members can enjoy a workout in the 2,000 square-foot Fitness Center featuring state-of-the-art training and cardiovascular equipment. In the summer, members can relax by the junior Olympic-sized swimming pool or spend the days on terrace overlooking Colorado’s Front Range and lush golf course enjoying Country Club dining.
Blackstone Country Club was the creative vision of Golf Magazine’s 1996 Architect of the Year, Jay Morrish. The layout is 7,313 yards from the championship tees and is framed by the Rocky Mountains to the west.
At Black Bear Golf Club, members enjoy the Kids Play Free program where children or grandchildren of club members walk for free or ride for only $5. The Sundown Program is also popular at Black Bear, allowing members to play for a $4 green fee and $5 cart fee after specified times during the week. After a round of golf, members can enjoy the grill fare in the Irish Embassy Pub or outside on the scenic veranda.
While the golf season is not year-round in our area, the club activities certainly area! Activities include holiday parties, wine dinners, brunches, barbeques, Canvas and Cocktails for the ladies, family night dinners, kids’ movie nights and much more.
Black Bear is a Jeff Brauer design that opened as “Canterberry Golf Club” in 1996. It is located just blocks from downtown historic Parker and is one of the most distinctive courses in the Rocky Mountain region. In 2010, Black Bear completed a vast array of improvements including bunker renovation, expansion of the driving range and much more.
A variety of membership products are available, beginning with the Black Bear Classic. This option starts at a $500 one time entry fee and $135 in dues for the family, providing full golf and dining access at Black Bear, with limited access to Blackstone. A Canongate Colorado membership begins at $1,250 entry fee and $185 a month for the family providing access to golf, dining, fitness, tennis, pool and social events. So, membership opportunities are varied.
