A pretty nice course. Very enjoyable.

I hadn't played Wellshire in 25 years. Its changed a bit, but so have I. I'll put it on my regular play list for weekday play. It was busy, but not overcrowded. The pace was well managed. The greens were in great shape. And the recent rain we have had did not leave the course too soggy.

Disappointing

On the Positive side, the staff was friendly, the sand traps had real sand and the greens were in good condition. On the other hand: the pace was extremely slow. It took 52 minutes to play the first three holes. The tee boxes and fairways were in bad shape. Huge areas of grassless hardpan, over watered mud holes and other GUR. Much worse condition than her sister Denver City course like Kennedy and City Park (when it was open)

good day

We went off on schedule and the course was in good shape except for a couple of sprinkler problems. Moved along quickly and for someone liking fast greens this was a dandy. I haven't played the course in a couple of years and it was in the best shape I have encountered.

Memorial Day At Wellshire

Donald Ross courses are always fun and challenging. Love the improvement they made on #10. Highly disappointed that they didn’t catch/rake up the huge clumps of grass around some of the greens. Had a good time overall though.

Poor Conditions

Course in poor shape - #10 unplayable. Ground under repair / its a goat path right now. No way it should be priced at current levels. I’ll not be returning. Consider yourself forewarned - Wellshire is another City of Denver golf fiasco.

Very poor conditions and pace of play

I have played Wellshire many many times over the years and have never seen it in such poor condition. It was all torn up and not very enjoyable. The pace of play was exceptionally long with no course marshals.

Under construction- New Spinklers

First hole had a temp green and the hole was about half the distance. Putting on the fairway. Poor conditions. The 10th hole had a temp Tee Box - again half the distance. Greens were rough- no sand in the sand traps. I could go on- but I won't. Great staff and we had fun playing in the 66 degree weather. Won't go back till fall.
