Fossil Trace Golf Club is a wedding venue situated in the city of Golden, Colorado. Conveniently located just 15 minutes away from downtown Denver, in this venue, you will be immersed in the breathtaking views of the surrounding Rocky Mountain Front Range. This country and golf club opened its doors in 2003, getting its name from the many dinosaur tracks and trace fossils found throughout the property. With this unique history dating back to prehistoric times, your wedding celebration here will surely be a one-of-a-kind experience to share with loved ones.

Beautiful venue. Great service

We had a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception thanks to Liz at Fossil Trace. The food was amazing and our guests haven’t stopped talking about it. The ceremony location offers incredible views and we had a great reception in their indoor event space with 100 guests.

Beautiful location for a wedding!

We had a small-ish wedding July 2022 and Liz at Fossil Trace did a phenomenal job helping us plan the most perfect day. The food was SO GOOD, the staff was fun and friendly, and the ceremony and reception went off without a hitch!
