About

Holes 18
Type Public/Municipal
Style Links/Executive
Par 65
Length 5048 yards
Slope 110
Rating 62.6

The 18-hole, executive length Homestead Golf Course in Lakewood is really more like a short championship course. The course has a yardage of 5,048 and plays to a par of 65. Denis Griffith designed the links-style course that offers some surprising challenges considering its length. The course features dramatic elevation changes as well as water hazards. The front nine holes and the back nine holes also differ in landscape to offer a truly unique experience. Homestead Golf Course's front nine has beautiful views of Denver as well as lovely streams and lakes. The back nine has rolling hills and it is abundant with wildlife.

Beautiful location, something different

Beautiful setting and design, with rolling hills on many holes and the mountains as a backdrop. I've played it twice, and it was in great shape both times. Pace was pretty slow both times, maybe because it's a shorter course that appeals to an older (and slower) crowd.

As others have noted, even though it's a short course, I would not call it easy. Many of the par 3s in particular are long and tricky. Overall, I definitely recommend Homestead.

Best views of any course in Denver

Homestead is an executive course, but don't be fooled that it is easy. I'm an 8 handicap and and its still challenging especially if the wind picks up. Great views and condition, and facilities are pretty solid as well. I don't want to make the course harder for me to get on, but I think you'll be surprised at how nice this course is if you play there.
