Harvard Gulch Golf Course

Denver, Colorado | 9 holes | Executive | Par: 27 | 872 yards

Harvard Gulch Golf Course is a nine-hole, par-3 course in Southern Denver. It is one of eight municipal courses in the city of Denver. The holes on this course range from 64 to 134 yards. The greens are small and well-bunkered and water hazards come into play on a few holes, providing challenges that are still suitable for beginners. There are also slight elevation changes to add interest to this short, fun course. Towering trees are a part of Harvard Gulch's landscape, providing enjoyable scenery. The fifth hole is the longest hole of the course and is therefore considered the hardest.

    Excellent golf course to get in a quick round and practice your short game. Very good course for beginners as the atmosphere is laid back and other golfers don't get upset if balls go flying into other fairways/greens. Good place for kids too.

    It's a fun & challenging course when played with the new Hybrid mid-distance golf ball.
    Would not recommend using the standard golf ball here due to the safety issues.

    This is my favorite course to play! It's inexpensive, challenging enough for my skill level and has beautiful scenery. I love that it's a quick course too. I highly recommend it anyone looking for a fun afternoon without the pressure of high prices and grumpy golfers.
