I've been coming to Kennedy Golf Course for quite some time now, and I can't believe I haven't written a review for them. A good friend of mine doesn't live too far from this place, so it is the go-to place when we want to play one of their courses or practice our swing on the driving range.
As some others have mentioned, for a public course in Denver, Kennedy isn't that shabby. The greens are usually in decent shape and the pace of play, when I've been on, has been pretty relaxed. (Given I usually go during the week outside of the peak Saturday/Sunday days).
One of the biggest positives to Kennedy is the fact that they have three full-length, regulation 9-hole courses to choose from. In addition to the full-length courses, they have a pretty decent and fun par-3 course, if you are looking to improve your short game. All of which, I have always have a good time on (unless you count the times my game was completely off, haha). If you are wanting to improve your putting abilities, they also have a putt-putt golf course (although I will admit I have never played it - but it looks fun).
One of the downsides to Kennedy is their driving range - for the fact that you are hitting off of mats of astroturf, instead of the real stuff. I like to look at things in a more optimistic perspective, and would turn into a positive by saying that about half of the driving range stations are in the shade under a metal canopy. This is nice if you are wanting to get out of the sun on one of our scorcher summer days and still be able to practice your swing.
I would recommend Kennedy Golf Course to anyone who is down to play a great round of golf. From their par-3 to the regulation full-length courses, they have something for everyone, from beginners to advanced.
Went and played another 18 holes here and had a great time!
The greens were still decent.
The staff was super nice!
I will master this course one day! :-)
We will keep going back here for Sunday Funday!
Great staff....well maintained and at a decent price. Good value, unless you dont like trees!
After a 17 year hiatus from golf, I returned to Kennedy yesterday. This was the last course I played before I quit golf.
This course was nice in 1994, but it is even prettier now. Called on Sunday morning to find a tee time in the afternoon, and was told that I could pretty much pick the time I wanted. Excellent! Played 18 with a fellow Yelper. We got rained on for a short time at the turn, but two beers later, and we were on the back nine.
This is a true Denver gem.
JKF is a great public course, they take really good care of it. Around $50 to ride and play 18 on the weekends but worth it. Challenging course but not too hard. Bring an extra sleeve of balls though.
They have three 9 hole courses to play and a par 3 course. Also they have putt putt and a driving range.
