The Overland Park Golf Course is a municipal, 18-hole course that offers gorgeous views of the Denver skyline. The course opened in 1895, making it one of the older municipal courses in the Denver area. Located only three miles from downtown, the course features small, undulating greens and the fairways are narrow and lines with trees. However water hazards only come into play on one hole. William H. Tucker designed the first nine holes and later in 1956, nine holes designed by William F. Bell were added. On the Overland premises there is also a convenient lighted driving range, as well as other amenities that are associated with private facilities such as a restaurant and pro shop.

A flat, relatively short municipal course that was once eschewed by better players because of its uninteresting features and poor conditioning, this course has lately emerged as one of the best-conditioned courses in the Denver area, eclipsing the grooming of the other Denver muny courses, and providing a senior- and junior-friendly walk in a parkland. Don't let the wide fairways fool you; several holes can find you navigating your way around 100-foot tall trees if you don't put your tee shot on the correct side of the fairway. And the greens feature subtle breaks that can befuddle reasonably accomplished putters. Overall, a pleasant experience and tougher than the 114 slope would suggest.

Course was decent, it had rained the day before, and I won't fault the course for being wet. It is what it is. Wasn't excited about the 400+ long par 4s, but most were fair in layout. The main issue was PACE OF PLAY. It was atrocious, I simply couldn't believe how bad the course was backed up. Probably the worst I've ever personally seen. No marshal or staff to be found anywhere. Nothing but waiting on the countless groups ahead of us and finding shade at backed up tee boxes to sit and wait. HAD we been able to finish out whole round, it would've easily been 5.5hr. We allotted 4.5 to play, worst case scenario for our twosome. Had to leave 4:45 into our round after the 15th hole, didn't even finish playing out the 16th because we were too fed up and needed to leave. Absolutely ridiculous. If the pace was good, would've probably enjoyed playing here, other than the recently punched greens, which is another thing I won't fault them for, its just part of golf. Pace was terrible, plain and simple. Need to figure it out. Inexcusable to be out there for almost 5 hours or more.

One of the nicer city courses I've played. It was in great condition even considering the rain they had all day but there were very few ground under repair sections.

I got the first tee time out so pace was awesome.

The course was in decent shape for the time of the year. Typical Muni course, straight, open, no water to worry about. My biggest and only complaint, no ranger. The group in front of us was incredibly slow, and did not know or did not feel necessary to let my fairly quick 3 some play through. Once we made the turn, the back 9 was backed up with several groups, so we asked to play the front again in order to get 18 in. We were able to play that 9 in just over an hour as there was no wait.

I have played here many times. Fairly wide open, greens in great shape for this time of year, simple layout, pace was 4 hrs exactly, and it has good food at the clubhouse. Good deal for the cost.

Overland is a perfect place for a mid week round that's close to the city. The weekends can get slow. Course conditions are always acceptable for a municipal course. Not a very tough track if you keep it on the fairway. I enjoy better than Wellshire and Williscase. I also always walk because the course is flat and the holes are close together.

Old school golf. Supposedly opened in 1895. Maybe the most flat piece of land in Denver and a very tight course which makes it a really easy walk. A fairly easy course to score on if you keep it out of the plentiful trees.
