After being closed more than two years for renovations, City Park Golf Course will soon be back in the swing of things.
The golf course is poised to reopen sometime this spring “when the turf is fully established in order to protect the new turf from being damaged,” Nancy Kuhn, spokesperson for Denver Public Works (DPW), told The Know.
The course, dating to 1913, has been closed since November 2017 to “revitalize the 18-hole course, improve and add facilities for golfers of all levels and integrate course features that can serve to reduce flood risks in nearby neighborhoods,” according to DPW.
The city website also notes that the new golf course will feature:
- 18 holes with a par 71.
- Greater yardage than the old length of 6,708 yards.
- A full driving range without netting, while still meeting safety requirements.
- Newly planted trees while preserving “healthy stands of high-priority and perimeter trees…”
The renovation also includes a sparkling new clubhouse featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a back patio facing west. Patrons—non-golfers welcome—will look out at the city skyline and the mountains beyond it, all while enjoying a full bar and restaurant.
