Time to tee up! Denver will reopen seven of its eight city-owned golf courses including City Park, Evergreen, Harvard Gulch, Kennedy, Overland Park, Wellshire and Willis Case. (Aqua Golf remains closed until further notice.) In order to remain open, all customers must obey a bunch of rules. Anyone who doesn’t follow the rules will be removed from the golf course without a refund. Here’s what you need to know.
City of Denver Golf Course Policies (as of 4/20/20)
Reserving a tee time:
Tee times can be made over the phone by calling 720-865-4653 or online here up to 14 days in advance for Loyalty members and 7 days in advance without a Loyalty membership.

Call the pro shop when you arrive at the course to pay for your fees over the phone with a credit or debit card.
To speed up the check-in process we will not be accepting cash, gift cards, credit book or rainchecks.
Also, to speed up the check in process we encourage one person to pay for the entire reservation and have the other players use an electronic form of payment to settle-up later.
