Denver Public Works and Denver Parks & Recreation are beginning work on the redesign of Denver's historic City Park Golf Course 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.
The guidelines and requirements for this redesign were produced as part of a lengthy collaborative process with the public, representatives of the neighborhoods around City Park Golf Course and the golf community. The updated design will preserve the best features of the current course and retain the traditional Parkland style look and feel of City Park Golf Course, along with modernized amenities that will be enjoyed by neighbors and golfers alike for generations to come.
The driving range and the First Tee facility are substantially complete, including fine grading, irrigation, topsoil and seeding.
Golf course irrigation is operational. The water for the new trees, seed and turf is recycled and provided by Denver Water.
The new clubhouse is complete and the Temporary Certificate of Occupancy has been received. Work includes several levels of inspections and working on punch-list items in anticipation of the Certificate of Substantial Completion by the City to Saunders Construction.
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.
UPDATE: Search for City Park Golf Course Memorial Friends & Family
We are nearing the final stages of the remodel of City Park Golf course and will be putting the finishing touches on the project over the next few months. Thanks to your responses, we have been able to connect with the people associated with several unclaimed memorial benches.
We still need your help to find more information on the following memorials.
We must continue to honor and preserve the legacy of those who contributed to the history of City Park Golf Course. In concert with the Saunders Construction design team, Denver Golf has created an indoor memorial that will be prominently displayed in the new clubhouse.
