“Happily Ever After”



It’s a little known fact that SHADOW HILLS GOLF AND EVENTS CENTER started as a very private small 9-hole tract by the owners of the nearby Cotter mining company in the early 1920’s. The golf course was sold to the city of Cañon City and was then known as the Cañon City Golf Course. It wasn’t until 1957 that a small group of investors purchased the property and on July 29, 1959 construction began on what was then known at the SHADOW HILLS GOLF CLUB. The golf course was designed by Keith Foster, golf course Architect.  In 2003 the current club house was constructed and the club, still a private facility, became the SHADOW HILLS GOLF AND EVENTS CENTER.  In 2011 the property fell into receivership and was put on the auction block. During that same year the Holt family purchased the property and made a commitment to make SHADOW HILLS GOLF AND EVENTS CENTER the premiere golf, events, recreation center in Southern Colorado.

SHADOW HILLS GOLF AND EVENTS CENTER is located at 1232 County Road 143, Cañon City, Colorado. SHADOW HILLS GOLF AND EVENTS CENTER is a semi-private club. The public is welcome to play the course, enjoy the pool and encouraged to attend events and sample the best gastronomical creations in Fremont County.  The event areas are available for private parties and for use by reservation.  The property is privately owned by the Holt Family (Holt Recreation, LLC.).
