Great Course Experience - Just Aerated

Overall a great course, would have liked to know prior to booking that they had just aerated but everything else in terms of layout, fairway conditions etc. were great. Post match crew at the clubhouse was a good time and the food was solid.

Great day of golf

Willshire is an tree lined course that Denver golf has in excellent condition. Greens are smooth and fast and soft enough to accept a good shot. Fairways are great with the exception of the very low spots in the valley on 1 and 10 that it's probably very difficult to get grass to grow on. Rough was in good shape and appropriate length. Bunkers very good shape. Hats off to the superintendent and their staff. I love the old clubhouse and the staff in the bar were fantastic.
