Wellshire Golf Course

  43 Reviews

It was for the most part an excellent experience at the course. With one exception, the pace of play on the back nine was horrible. One group held us up. The issue is the course allows for 9 hole groups to play before the 18 hole groups make the turn. Thus, you have a mix of both. In this case the 9 hole group was just wondering about without any consideration for our group, the first to tee off.

They would play this course again.

I live near Wellshire and play there often. It’s a pretty well kept course with diverse hole layouts. Bobby Jones apparently I payed a tournament there and said his favorite hole was number 8.

They do a good job keeping the fairways and greens in good condition. There are not many hazards so it’s pretty forgiving for the novice golfer and fun for a good golfer because of the scoring opportunities.

Good views of the mountains and a cool old school clubhouse with nice tree shaded patio.

They would play this course again.

After playing this course twice, I think it's one of the more interesting Denver city courses. It was designed by Donald Ross and opened in ~1926, wow. Currently, the driving range (into a lake) is not open. Walking out to the practice green and #1 tee are a bit iffy if folks on #9 pull or hook into the trees. The greens play fairly quick, so spend time at the practice putting green to get it dialed.

This par 71 course is ~6500 yards max, but the ratings are 70.7/130 from bronze, 69.4/126/6232y from gold, 67/122/5756y/par 73 from black, and 66.6/119/4709y/par 73 from silver, so expect some non-distance challenges for a muni.

Leaves in the fall can add to your challenge. We walked (it's very walkable) into probably 10-15 lost ones with very light golfer traffic. When in doubt, stay below the hole here. The design seems to favor faders, but there are a few draw holes (6, 7, & 18). The course lies close to Hampden, which makes holes #14-17 slightly more intimidating if you're not on your game. Hole #17 is quite picturesque and with #18 makes for a tougher 1-2 finish. Oh yeah, the 150 stick on #17 is not 150.

The greens will favor those with those with experience on the course.

Right now, the weekday M-F walking rate is $28, $22 seniors, which makes it a reasonable round. With its tight layout, walking intentionally leisurely only took 3:30 even with hunting among leaves for some shots.

The 19th hole is pretty good if you're thirsty or hungry after your round.

They would play this course again.
