SPLIT TEE STARTS

What is a split tee start?

A split tee start means that there are two 18-hole start times, one off of each 9 (Example: a foursome can tee off at 9 AM from hole #1 while another foursome can tee off at 9 AM from #10). Groups that tee off the 10th tee will turn to #1 to complete 18-hole rounds. When searching tee times, both front nine and back nine tee times will show on the tee sheet (for example it will say Starting Front 9 and Starting Back 9).

Why does Denver Golf do a split tee start?

We do a double tee start during the winter months to maximize the amount of 18 hole tee times we can offer with limited daylight hours.  We also delay the start of play to minimize the likelihood of frost delays.

How do I book a tee time? 

Search and book your tee times normally.  The only difference you will see is the “course” you book.  If you are going to tee off of number 10, then you will book the “back nine” course.


How do I view my upcoming tee times?

Visit the tee time booking website and login.  Then select My Tee Times from the left menu options.  All upcoming reservations will be listed there – you can view date, course, tee time, number of players, number of holes and riding/walking/push cart.

I am a senior but the system will not let me book a senior tee time, why? 

All tee times are booked as adult. If you qualify for a discounted rate (senior/junior/family fun pass/come learn and play pass) the rate will be adjusted at check-in.


Do I need to make a tee time?

Tee times are not required. Anyone may book a tee time up to 7 days in advance OR up to 14 days in advance for Loyalty Members online or by calling the course 24 hours a day.  Walk ups are also accepted the day of, but keep in mind un-booked times can fill up quickly.  It is recommended that you book a tee time in advance to ensure you get on the course.  All players must “check in” at the pro shop to pay their associated fees.


Can I book more than 1 tee time on the same day?

No, not unless you prepay as a small group with the facility.  1 player is allowed to book 1 tee time for up to 4 players on a single day.  If our team finds multiple tee times linked to a single player that is not booked as a small group or permitted event then the extra time(s) will be cancelled.  If a single player tries to book extra times repeatedly their booking privileges may be suspended.


Can I book multiple consecutive tee times for a group? How?

Yes. If you have 5-20 players, call the pro shop to set up a small group booking. If you have 21+ players, please fill out the tournament request form . Our Tournament Director will contact you to help you book your event.


Do you allow five-somes?

Due to the amount of play our courses receive, we are not normally able to accommodate five-somes, however, there are times when five-somes are feasible.  Call the course to determine if your request for a five-some can be allowed.  Our five-some policy states: Five-somes are only allowed at the discretion of the Head Golf Professional or Manager on Duty during the off-peak season with the use of three golf carts where applicable, and during special events.  There is no ability to make reservations for five-somes using the reservation system.  No five-somes are allowed during the peak season.

Aqua Golf Course

We have a variety of right and left handed clubs for all ages and prices do vary.

Rain Checks

Can I use a rain check from one course at ANY Denver Golf Course?

Yes.  A rain check from one of our courses can be used at any Denver Golf course.


I lost my rain check.  Do you have a record of it?

No. Rain checks are given out as vouchers on the day of the rain-out and are not tracked to the specific player.  The only way to identify them is by the rain check voucher number found on the rain check itself.  Please keep them in a dry place or take a picture of the voucher so you will be able to find it the next time you play.


My friend and I completed the same number of holes but we have a different amount on our raincheck, why?

Denver Golf issues pro-rated rainchecks based on the amount you paid for your round and the number of holes you completed before having to discontinue your round.  If you and your friend paid different rates (ex: walk vs. ride or adult vs. senior rates) then you will not receive the same amount back on your raincheck.

Rates

I am a senior/junior, I was told I need to add my date of birth to my profile to get the discounted rate. How do I add my date of birth to my profile?

Login to your profile at https://app.membersports.com/home. From the upper right corner, select edit profile, scroll down on the profile page and add your date of birth to the birthday box.


Does a non-playing friend have to pay to ride in a cart?

Yes, spectators are using the cart for transportation the same as a golfer and by using the cart, are precluding it from being rented to another golfer, therefore, each will pay the same fee.  Please refer to our current cart fee rates for appropriate pricing.


How do you set your green fees? 

Denver Golf green fee rates are based on a dynamic pricing model which gives our customers more flexibility to choose the time and price that works best for them.  If you have flexibility with the time you play, you can look for the best price. If you prefer a specific time, you will get a different price based on time of day and day of week.


How does dynamic pricing work? 

Since there are a limited number of tee times available each day, the price is based on supply and demand.  A Saturday morning will be higher in price than a Wednesday afternoon.  This pricing model is similar to booking airline tickets, buying sports tickets or booking hotel rooms, which all have limited supplies available.  Customers show are price sensitive can book during slower times and get a better rate leaving the busier times more available for customers who are time sensitive.


How do I get the best price?

The farther out you book and the more flexibility you have in day and times, the better rates you will be able to find.


How can I book?

It’s easiest to book online on the Denver Golf website www.cityofdenvergolf.com but you can also call the golf shop.  All fees will be booked at the adult rate for that day and time, and then adjusted for special rates (Juniors, Seniors, etc.) at check in if that rate is lower than the booked rate.


What are your resident rates?

The decision was made several years ago to eliminate the resident rate at Denver Golf Courses.  This decision was made because Denver Golf is an Enterprise Fund; meaning no General Funds or Tax Funds are used for operating the golf courses.  The only source of funds for Denver Golf is the revenue generated by the courses themselves; such as Green Fees, Cart Fees, Range Fees, and Merchandise Sales.  Thus, resident golfers and non-resident golfers support the course equally.


Do you rent clubs? 

Yes we do!  Please click here for rental club rates.

Course Conditions

Why do you have four sets of different colored tees? 

To support the USGA’s nationwide effort for people to get more enjoyment out of the game, we have updated our course tee colors and distances.  The beauty of golf is that anyone can play because the course adjusts for different skill levels based on the tees you play.  We want people to have choices.  It is not much fun playing a golf course that is just too long for the average player.  Playing from the distance that matches your skill level gives you a better opportunity to make pars and birdies.  By making these small changes in tee color and yardages, your scores, pace of play and overall enjoyment of the game increases dramatically.  Since introducing the new tees and tee marker colors, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of players utilizing the forward tees.  This has resulted in increased play and enjoyment of our courses by all golfers.


What is the purpose for frost delays?

We have frost delays when the temperature and humidity are at a level which would result in temporary or permanent turf damage if players are allowed to walk on the turf.  So, we have frost delays to keep our courses in the best condition possible.


What is the best way to get updated on the latest Denver Course Conditions?

We have all the latest course condition updates on Threads or you can download the Threads App by clicking here and get them delivered to your phone or computer .

Pace of Play

Why do course marshals follow us around?

Marshals are there to monitor the flow of play and assist golfers when needed to ensure everyone enjoys their day on the course.  If you view the golf course like the interstate where there is a maximum and a minimum speed limit it explains why we need marshals.  If you drive slow on the interstate people have to go around you or sit behind you causing further back-ups and even accidents (someone ever play into your group?).  If you drive too fast you run into the cars in front of you and have to wait.  The best way for everyone to get where they are going is for everyone to keep a steady pace.  Marshals monitor the pace to try and keep it steady and prevent back-ups and accidents.  If a Marshal has to discuss pace of play with a group, it is to assist everyone with their pace of play.

I’m new and don’t want to hold others up.  When can we play by ourselves?

Welcome to the game!  Everyone starts as a beginner, so we all understand it can be intimidating at times.  We can never guarantee that you will get your own tee time as we pair golfers based on demand to try and allow everyone an opportunity to play.  Here are a few ideas on how to improve your odds of not being paired up with other golfers.

  • Strategically book a tee time.  (a.) Very early in the morning (first two hours course is open) (b.) Just after lunch Monday thru Thursday (c.) Late any day around 1 1/2 hours before sunset.
  • Play one of our par three courses.  They are great for beginning golfers and not normally as busy as the other courses.  Harvard Gulch or Kennedy Par Three .
    • Call and talk to the staff at the course you want to play.  They will be happy to help you find the best time to improve your odds.

Do you have golf pros that give lessons? 

We have many PGA and LPGA instructors available.  They can all teach at any of our facilities.  Check out our instructors and more lesson information.

Do you have Ladies and Men’s clubs?

Each course has a Men’s and Ladies Club.  For a list of clubs and associated contact information check with the respective golf course or click here to get the contact information for each club.


Why are there so many geese on the course?

Geese are protected so the only way we can manage them is to haze them and try to make them want to leave.  As you can imagine a golf course is a perfect environment for geese.  Plenty of great turf to feed on, lots of water hazards to swim in and not many natural threats.  It is difficult to get them to leave permanently so we try to manage it the best that we can.


What are you doing about the goose droppings? 

The previous question answers this question to some degree.  Lots of geese equal lots of goose droppings.  We manage this as best we can by blowing off the greens, fairways and tees and raking the other areas when possible.  It is impossible to manage the goose droppings in the winter so the spring thaw is the worst.  As it warms up and snow melts we are gradually able to catch up on the goose dropping maintenance.


Do you rent out the facilities for non-golf events? 

Yes, the clubhouses do host many non-golf events (wedding receptions, local group luncheons, fundraisers).  For details about booking a non-golf event, reach out directly to the food and beverage team at the facility you are interested in.  Their contact information can also be found on the course page online.


What are the “Relaxed Rules of Golf” signs about?

This is an industry-wide effort to make the game more fun and help maintain the pace of play on the course.  We are not all professional golfers playing for million dollar checks – so why play by their rules and at their pace?  The relaxed rules encourage golfers to keep a good pace by minimizing ball searches and time spent on relief procedures in order to have a more enjoyable round.
