Directions to the Lockheed Martin Club House
From Wadsworth and C-470, head south on Wadsworth. Go past the Denver Botanic Gardens
at Chatfield and the Trail Mark Subdivision.
On the right hand side (west side) of the road there will be a sign for Colorado Golf and Turf.
This is a golf cart rental/sales place. Turn in as though you were going into that business. Once
you’ve made the turn, you will see a road on the right called Skyward (lane, drive, st, or
ave???). It’s the only road — so just look for Skyward.
Follow Skyward as it weaves around, heads north past the antenna test lab and then heads
west. You will see a football field and picnic area and several small buildings. The club house is
a one level gray colored structure with M-41 ( or maybe 81??) on a small plaque on the outside
of the building. That is the club house.
You’ll see vehicles there so just come on up.
