Golf Course Renovation

Project Updates: 

City Park reopened on September 1st, 2020 with limited play and walking only rounds.  Fewer rounds than normal will promote further establishment of the turf and protect this new community asset, creating a lasting legacy for future generations.
City Park will be closing again in the fall of 2020 to allow grass to continue growth.  The fence surrounding the golf course will remain in place until Spring of 2021 in order to protect the sensitive new turf from unauthorized use during the winter months, and to minimize foot traffic while we are working on remaining projects within the golf course.  
The new course offers:

  • 18 holes of golf and a new full-size driving range
  • New clubhouse and returning nines
  • Dedicated 4-hole course for the First Tee of Denver program
