City Park Golf Course is CLOSED and will reopen for play when the turf is fully established in order to protect the new turf from being damaged and establishment of the turf is largely dependent upon the weather the rest of 2019 and spring of 2020.
During major storms, the redesigned City Park Golf Course will temporarily hold and slow floodwaters while
protecting the course from damage. The detention area is an essential part of Platte to Park Hill: Stormwater Systems. It will be integrated into an updated course design that will be even more enjoyable
for golfers and help protect some of the city’s most at-risk neighborhoods from flooding.
Integrating stormwater detention in golf courses is a very common practice. Outside of major storms, the
area will remain a dry, fully-functioning golf course.
After considering technical merits and community input, City Park Golf Course was selected for water
detention because it will protect significantly more homes and businesses; enhances an existing city asset; reduces the need for private property acquisition; and provides for future stormwater needs.
Turf grow-in is in progress across the golf course property.
Landscaping and other work to complete the new clubhouse and maintenance facility is occurring.
Stormwater improvements on the golf course are operational and reducing flood risks as intended. The detention area is collecting stormwater from the basin upstream, slowly releasing the stormwater into an existing pipe north of the course, and helping prevent those stormwater systems north of 26th Avenue from becoming overwhelmed.
City Park Golf Course is currently closed and will reopen when the turf is fully established. An opening date for the golf course will be based on regular assessments of the turf. Establishment of the turf is largely dependent upon weather conditions.
Denver Golf strives to provide great playing conditions and a positive experience to our guests.
