A sister golf course to Pelican Lakes Golf and Country Club, RainDance will be the 18-hole centerpiece of a planned community in Windsor, Colo. A timeline for construction has not yet been established by owner Water Valley Land Company.
Water Valley Land Company in Windsor, Colo., announced Wednesday that its golf course, Pelican Lakes Golf and Country Club, will be getting a sister, the Fort Collins-based Coloradoan reported.
Due in the next few years and expected to come in at 18 holes and 7,535 total yards, RainDance National Golf Club will be located 3 miles west of Pelican Lakes. It will be the centerpiece of the 2,792-lot planned Windsor community RainDance, which is still in its master planning phase, the Coloradoan reported.
The course will be designed by eight-time PGA Tour winner Fred Funk, a friend of Water Valley President Martin Lind. It will be owned and operated by Lind and Colorado developers Don and Andrew Larrick.
In a news release, Water Valley representatives said no other community in Northern Colorado offers as many playable golf holes as their company offers, adding that with the development of the RainDance course, the Windsor area will become a “resort destination for die-hard golfers,” the Coloradoan reported.
“People say I dream big, but there truly is no limit for the potential of RainDance on the national stage now that we have teamed up with Mr. Funk and his talented crew,” Lind said in the release. “I see the day where blimps are hovering and very exciting things are taking place on this property.”
The layout of the RainDance course is expected to be drastically different than “waterlogged” Pelican Lakes, according to Water Valley Land Co. Elevation changes will be RainDance’s theme, with elevations varying from 4,998 feet above sea level to 4,790, the Coloradoan reported.
As for when exactly the course will be built, Water Valley’s Director of Marketing Kurt Hinkle said, “It’s still really early.”
“What’s on the drawing board is a future hotel and timeshare located on the Water Valley campus (between North and South Water Valley),” Hinkle said. “The idea will be ultimately, in a few years, people will be able to fly in and play 27 holes at Pelican Lakes and 18 at RainDance.”
“We’re going for a resort community, and it will be the only resort community in Northern Colorado and by far have the most privately owned holes in Northern Colorado.”
