Greenway Park Golf Course
Greenway Park Golf Course is a nine-hole, public course in the city of Broomfield. The par-3 course stretches across 2,192 yards. The course is ideal for beginners and golfers who want to practice their short game. The fairways are wide giving golfers a better approach to the greens. There are no water hazards that come into play but there are bunkers. Although the course might not be challenging enough for advanced or low handicap golfers, it is an excellent place to take children who want to learn. Greenway Park Golf Course is also an ideal place to get in a quick, affordable game of golf.
This course has potential in being a gorgeous par 3 course. But the greens, fairways, and everything in between have gone down hill. I look forward to the day they fix up the course and take care of it better.
No longer worth the visit
I've played this course a couple of dozen times over the past few years, as it's close to home, very reasonably priced, and a quick hour's worth of play. The course has never been in great shape during this time, but it's now hit a new level of bad.
For the past year it's had trenches snaking around the course and work going on, as they were supposedly upgrading the irrigation system. This gave me hope that conditions on the course would soon improve.
However, just the opposite has occurred, as apparently the upgrade to irrigation has failed completely...I went last Sunday for the first time in several months, and there was not a green blade of grass anywhere on the entire course. It was all dead, brown grass, in the few places that had grass at all. The ground is rock hard, and you are looking at nothing but hard packed dirt on every tee box. The only green thing anywhere on the course was where low lying weeds are taking over the greens, making every putt follow some bumpy inconsitent line. Hitting the ground anywhere was like hitting into concrete.
Except for the friendly staff, it was without a doubt the worst golf experience I can recall. Since it looks to me like it would take years for this place to recover to even the mediocre shape it was in previously, I don't see myself going back here in the near future, which is a shame.
Fun Course and Friendly Pro Shop
This had to be the most relaxing,fun round of golf I have played in Colorado since I moved here! The course was well maintained and fun to play and the pro shop was very pleasant and freindly!
Poor overall course
The staff was extremely uninviting to begin the day and perhaps that added to my jadedness, but also an average of 100 foot holes didn’t make for a very enjoyable course. Very small par 3 course but probably worth the cheap fees associated.
great par 3 for kids
easy course. fairly flat, good for short game practice. Should be listed as such on GolfNow
Fun little Par 3
First time to play this course and played with my wife, who is a beginner. Tee boxes could have used a mowing, and greens were a little slower than I'm used to, but all in all a fun round.
Very friendly staff greeted us. Easy to walk. Fun little course. Wasn't busy at all so we were able to take our time and never had to wait for others.
Short but No Gimmees
A pleasant park with nine par 3s to hone your short game. Don't expect to coast to a scratch round. The fairways are narrow and the greens can be a challenge to read. Some well-placed bunkers add to the challenge, especially when I played because the sand was hard packed.
Looks easy, but . . .
Yes, it is short. No, it is not easy. The greens here have recently improved dramatically; rolling true and at good pace. The course design is intriguing: short, but with undulating greens which will challenge you. The tee boxes could use some love: they are completely chewed up by heavy play. This is a beautiful course which must be walked (no cart option, which I love) and savored. Only one hole (the 7th) requires more than a 7 iron. Parents bring their kids here to learn, and it's perfect for that. Nice people, sweet short course.
Nice Tuneup course
Walked 9 holes in under an hour. I used my PW, AW, 48 and 60 wedges almost exclusively. There is a nice 204 yd hold that was a stretch for my 4I. Great place to work out any kinks in the swing. Would also be an ideal place for a beginner to get the feel for the game.
Good for a quick round
I am still learning the game and Greenway is a fairly easy, short course that can be walked in an hour or so for 9 holes. There are a few obstacles such as water, but nothing very difficult to overcome. You won't get out your driver as the longest hole is only 204 yards, but it's a great way to work on your short game and get done quickly if you're limited on time.
