Master Plan Renovation

            The Denver Country Club is currently undergoing renovations as part of a master plan by golf course architect Gil Hanse. The project thus far has included a redesign and regrassing of all bunkers, adding many new tee boxes to the golf course, a project to narrow the channels of the Cherry Creek that runs through the property and regrow the vegetation along the banks. Seven putting greens on the golf course have been rebuilt, the practice facility has been redesigned, and one of our ponds redone.

            The work will continue into 2021 to prepare the golf course and our new putting greens for opening in May. Any intern with the ability to work an extended season will be rewarded with an abundance of practical construction, agronomic, and irrigation (PVC and HDPE) knowledge.
