Plane makes emergency landing at golf course

The small plane landed at Fox Hollow Golf Course in Lakewood. No injuries were reported.

LAKEWOOD, Colo. — A plane carrying two people made an emergency landing on a golf course in Lakewood Monday morning. 

The twin-engine Costruzioni Aeronautiche Tecnam P206T landed around 7:30 a.m. in Fox Hollow Golf Course located at 13410 W. Morrison Rd., just east of Morrison.

The plane came to a rest in the rough beside the green on the fourth hole of the Links course.

“They missed the green, skidded over this hill here and just did a nosedive," assistant golf professional Paula Bauer said. “Didn’t do any damage to the golf course and everybody’s fine.”

Bauer said junior golfers were on the course at the time the plane went down, but no one was on the fourth hole. 

“The pilot did a fabulous job," Bauer said. 

No injuries were reported, according to the Lakewood Police Department.

Fox Hollow Golf Course closed three holes on the Links course Monday and diverted golfers around the plane. Bauer said the holes would remain closed until the plane was removed.

Lakewood Police are working with the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board to determine what led to the emergency landing.
