The Babe Lind/Creek Course is one of three courses at the J.F. Kennedy Golf Center that can be played in three 18-hole combinations. There is also a great par-3, nine-hole course at the facility. Unlike the West/Creek course, which was designed by Henry Hughes, the Babe Lind/Creek Course was done by another famous golf designer, Dick Phelps, who has done a few other courses in the Denver Area. Opened in 1965, the Babe Lind/Creek is the most popular 18-hole course at J.F. Kennedy Family Golf Center. It offers up to 6,884 yards of golf from its longest tees. The course has large, undulating greens and narrow, tree-lined fairways. Water hazards also come into play on this course.

Course review

Long course and two different nines. LORRAINE seems to be a bit low for the toughness of the course

Good stuff

Course was in good shape considering it had been aerated only 2 or 3 days before.
3.5 hr round was a very good time.
First time player at that course I’ll be back.
Very friendly staff.
Thanks again.

Weekday Golf

This course has three nine holes. The Creek course is great and scenic, but the other two nine's are nothing special, but for the price and just a round of golf always a good deal for a city course

Kennedy Golf Course

Beautiful Fall day. Trees were turning great colors and if you don’t stay in the fairway they can be punishing. Greens were in good shape. Great value, beautiful course.

Nice course, but was misled by golf now app

I was very disappointed when I learned that the price I paid for the “hot deal“ on GolfNow was actually more than the pro shop was charging for a walk up rate.

Nice round with my son

A beautiful October morning playing golf with my son. Pace of play was good and course was in decent shape even though the greens were aerated last week. Give them another week and they should be fine.

Did they shutdown for winter without telling anyone?

The course was in good overall shape. It would have been nice if they'd warned people that the greens were aerated, but that is somewhat normal this time of year, so that isn't a course negative, but rather a management negative. The rest of the course was in great shape.

Management negatives... no yardage markers to state how far the creek is and on about 30 shots I had NO clue how far away I was because there are very few markers and the carts have no GPS. There was no drink cart but FAR worse than that was the fact that there was no water either. It was 83 degrees and no clouds, INEXCUSABLE.

excellent golf course

course was in very good condition, greens were better than most this time of year, overall this is a challenging course- course was not crowded and we cruised along great until hitting a very slow group that was irritating to the group in front of us, my group and the group behind, we reported this to the ranger who did nothing, probably cost us an hour
