Thanks to some good grass-growing weather this spring, the City Park Golf Course will open to the public in the fall.

The golf course has been closed since November 2017 to implement a controversial stormwater management system. The course lost about 200 trees but has been redone to include a full-size driving range, a new club house, a dedicated four-hole course for the First Tee of Denver program and more.

“The City has been closely monitoring establishment of the turf on the course and believes it will be able to withstand limited play later this year, with fewer rounds than normal to be scheduled in 2020 to promote further establishment of the turf and protect this new community asset, creating a lasting legacy for future generations,” the city said in a statement.

The course’s first event will be a Denver Golf Men’s City Amateur Championship from August 29-30.
