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.

It took us 2:40 to play first nine. Ten minutes between tee times is too short so every group was waiting on every hole. I will not go back

Fun track to play...0640 tee time and pace was slow. Will play again, but for lesser rate. There are a lot of options in the area that are much nicer, for the same price. Great staff

I have had the fortunate pleasure of never having paid for a round of golf on any of their four courses (3 9-hole courses and 1 9-hole par 3 course), but having played all courses multiple times.

The state of the course, even during the hottest parts of the summer is generally in great shape. Greens are quite large and tend to be a bit slower than other courses, but certainly not terrible. Golfers tend to be terrible about fixing their divots and ball marks. Definitely walk the ground before you take your putt.

Fairways are generally wide and the creek side has a fair bid of undulation with several blind shots and hazards. There are several forced carries and some large elevation changes. Beginners might struggle a bit, but it should prove to be a fun course for advanced players.

My chief complaint with all four courses is the pace of play. It is glacially slow. The course is quite long and spread out, so if you are behind some walkers, try your very best to pass them. My rounds in a cart typically clock in just shy of 5 hours.
