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.

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.
This is my home course. Play here often and enjoy it. The course is in good shape and the greens are rolling nice and fast mid-summer. Easy course to walk.
Fun Course BUT......
Fun course, good layout and great staff but greens are in horrible condition. Never seen anything like it. I play this course every year and it is public course and can get beat up but after experiencing the greens today I will not be going back.
Great deal for the money. Awesome cart girls. Nice to play without all the leaves. I finally pared 15. Great day.
Great place to play!
Great day on the course! It started with the starter; very friendly and helpful. The course was in Great shape for a winter day! Pace of play was above average.
Fun round of Golf
We had rain in the morning so it was just my buddy and I planning the entire time - I never even saw any other golfers around us. We played the west 9, a very simple course with not much sand and no water but it was very well kept. Fun round especially with the discounted GN rate
Punched Greens—-was not notified
I like this course but please note that the greens were punch the DAY before!
This is a good golf facility with lots of options. The Babe and Creek combo is an interesting layout. Almost like two different courses. Views of the front range are magnificent especially from the Babe. Today the greens were just average bumpy with unrepaired ball marks and areas of what looked like ground under repair and there was massive amounts of goose poop throughout course and especially on the greens. Not sure what they can do about that. Overall a good place to play.
Sandy greens and full rate
Putting on these greens is like Plinko from the Price is Right....should be discounted some.
