The Courses That Jack Built

Can you identify all 13 Colorado layouts in the Jack Nicklaus portfolio?

In 1969, with seven majors already under his belt, Jack Nicklaus added golf course architecture to his formidable résumé with the opening of Harbour Town Golf Links, which he co-designed with Pete Dye in Hilton Head. Today, more than four decades later, with design associates all over the world, the Nicklaus Design portfolio comprises a staggering 390 courses open for play, with all but 100 directly involving the man himself. His empire spans 41 countries and 38 states, with Colorado boasting a dozen courses—plus an unlucky 13th that didn’t survive the recession. Can you match these photos to the course names below?
