J. F. Kennedy Golf Center - Babe Lind/Creek Course
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.

Great shape for time of year
Ropes greens were weird but course was in good shape just after snow
Staff was awesome , friendly and accommodating. It’s March in Colorado and course was in comparably shape to Vegas courses this time of year. I’ll be back soon.
I love this course, I ll playing again
The babe course is easy, buy the creek is more difficult. I love it.
I got to the course and my tee time was not reserved. I ended up being charged twice to play and have yet to receive a refund from golf now
Great experience every time
My wife and I love playing the West 9...staff is welcoming, course in great shape, afternoons are not that crowded. We play here at least every other week and have incorporated it into our date night. Thanks for a great experience every time!

play speed was great staff helpful and polite tees and greens in great shape .greens are big which has some challenges with reading the putts really great course.
Creek=good Babe=eh west=awful
The babe/creek 18 is a bang for the buck. Overall it’s a very well kept course and played very well. The babe alright with mostly playable holes that are fairly straightforward but can get a little boring. The creek however is worth the price of admission and I wish you could just play that for 9 holes. The creek may not be long, but every hole is at least somewhat interesting with a great layout and a solid use of land. But my God, the west course blows. West is a very boring round of golf with just long straight holes that are pretty much the same. Kennedy is a perfect example long doesn’t mean better. Overall creek and babe is a good time.
Challenging experience given the conditions
I played the Babe/Creek combination and walked the round. It was very challenging given the circumstances. It started out rough due to the required telephone check in from the parking lot. Despite being told everything was fine, by the time I got to the first tee, my group was already out in the first fairway. I hustled down to the second tee and caught them there so I missed the first hole. Since there were no benches, water, or scorecards it was a tough day. I felt like I was constantly faced with blind shots since there was often quite a distance from the tees to any course information markers. Without a scorecard or other map, it was quite challenging. There was no drink cart so without water on the course, it was a brutal 90 degree round.
Fix your ball marks
Maybe it goes hand in hand with Denver people who are younger, more irresponsible, less caring, etc... but these greens are like the lunar surface. To bad for such a good course
Two people from my reservation had to cancel last minute. I called them as soon as I found out these two had to cancel to let them know. The course still charged me the full amount. It’s ridiculous they did this. The course wasn’t full by any means. It was a weekday with plenty of open slots. Things change. I will not be playing here again.
Nice course, good value
Nice course. I enjoyed the layout and variety. In good shape, except for the bunkers which need more sand and/or raking. Greens had been aerated in the past few weeks but healing nicely and not much of an issue. Pace of play ws 4:10 for a walking foursome. A few holes on the back nine are far apart so there's extra walking, but not too bad.
Nice course, good value
I like the layout of this course. If you’re walking there are a few longish wake between a few of the holes. Greens had been sweated recently but were pretty well healed and in decent shape. Well maintained. 4:20 for a walking threesome was good (Monday 10:10 tee time, wasn’t busy)
For a City managed course, Excellent.
I played 18, the Creek course and Babe Lynn. The Creek course is not overly long, but a real kick to play. Fairways are a bit narrow and there are plenty of trees lining the fairways. Babe Lynn is longer, around 3500 from the tips, at not as much fun. The greens were aerated a few days ago, so putting was not much fun. That is no fault of the city or the team here, it has to be done. My only negative is the range. No grass tees and all mats. I hate mats, so that was an issue for me. Overall, a terrific day on the course.
