Birdie Class Format

To ensure that our advanced participants maximize their time and abilities in class we have split our advanced player classes into three different levels: 
Intro to Birdie will be for students that have certified and wish to advance their golf skills and knowledge to the next level but still need to master basic technique.
Birdie class will be for students that have mastered basic technique and have aspirations but are not quite ready to play tournament golf at a competitive level.
Advanced Birdie class will be for those juniors that have played competitive golf or are close to playing competitive golf at a higher level (high school, CJGA, AJGA events)
In the summer all birdie class participants will be encouraged to participate in The First Tee of Denver’s Players’ Club tournament series. If you have any questions or concerns regarding advanced player classes please contact Nick Johnson at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 720-865-3422


Certification
At the end of all Par, Pardie, Girls Only, and Beagle classes, participants will take The First Tee Golf Skills Certification. Participants must pass the certification to move to the higher level class of Intro to Birdie or to join Players' Club. Emails were sent out after last session with certification results and recommended classes. If you did not receive an email or if your son or daughter is new to the program and you would like him or her to take a higher level class (Players' Club, Intro to Birdie, Birdie or Advanced Birdie class) please register for this FREE certification. 
 
This year's spring certification will be held at Wellshire Golf Course on March 11th at 11:00 a.m.

Capital Improvements


Wellshire irrigation renovation. Construction Late 2017- Early 2018. Construction on irrigation improvements began September 5th. For more photos and daily updated information go to the Wellshire Facebook page.

Wellshire Driving Range renovation. Wellshire is decommissioning the Skeel Dam and renovatiing the reservoir to handle water quality and retention.  The reservoir is currently draining.  This will prevent the current flooding of holes #1, #7 and #10.



 
The 
Denver Golf Green Initiatives
 
               

Denver Golf is continually improving irrigation efficiency and golf course conditioning. 2018 has seen big strides in water management; mainly through technology and equipment upgrades.

Wellshire Golf course has finished a complete irrigation upgrade. State of the art central control, new pipe (no leaks), exceptional irrigation head placement, and nozzles provide a more efficient use of this resource while presenting a better golfing experience. We are working through fine tuning for best possible coverage and efficiency.

Evergreen golf course upgraded all satellites and central control to optimize control of existing irrigation system. In process is a weather station installation so we have site specific weather data to dial in exact irrigation needs at Evergreen. This makes a total of six weather stations in Denver Golf. We don’t water when it rains!

John F. Kennedy golf course embarked on an irrigation audit of all sprinkler heads and is marching through the process. Audits provide exact nozzles sizes and arc so that the central control can deliver more precise and efficient irrigation coverage. Kennedy also completed a central control upgrade for better control and management of irrigation water.
