South Suburban Golf Course is my home course, but please read my comments as an unbiased review. Ive played a lot of public courses and country clubs over the past 25 years. You will be hard-pressed to find a public course that has fairways and greens in this good of condition. There is an 18-hole regulation course and a Par 3 9-hole course. Both are in exceptional condition for most of the late spring, all of summer, and most of the fall. The people working there are professional and polite. My ONLY reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 has to do with the greens. Dont get me wrong, the condition of the grass is impeccable. But the way a lot of the greens slope and, many times, where the pins are placed, make this course unreasonably more difficult. Look, I like a challenge just like anyone else. The key word in my description of the greens is "unreasonably." Often times the pin placements are on a slope that you wouldnt even see on a ridiculously challenging putt-putt course. I digress. Its a very fun course to play and the condition of the landscape is awesome. They grounds crew does a fantastic job. And hey, your putting will be out-of-this-world good if you play here and then play somewhere else. Enjoy!
Made an online reservation. Nothing anywhere showed them being closed when I did so. I called to verify, and then was told, in a super snarky tone while he was laughing at me, that they are CLOSED. I then said that my reservation is a couple of days away and the weather is supposed to be really nice so I figured what the hey, Ill book a tee time. The guy then laughed at me again and said theres no way in hell the course will be open. Im glad I called, otherwise myself and 3 of my buddies would have showed up and the course would have been CLOSED, and we would have not been happy. The dude was very rude, and UPDATE YOUR ONLINE RESERVATION AREA IF YOU ARE CLOSED, or if you are expecting the course to be CLOSED!!! Then, when I asked if he knew of any other courses that might be open, he laughed at me again. Talk about customer service........ Grrrrr! #DisgruntledDenverGolfer
My visit today was one of the worst customer service experiences Ive every had. The staff was unfriendly and unwilling to help! Its not what was said it was how they talked to me. We booked a t-time for 2 online but the receipt stated only 1 person (our mistake) was booked, due to road construction we were 4 minutes late. I was told the next t-time was 2 hours away. I left the clubhouse and stopped by the Par 3 course, the next group was only 2 golfers and we could have played with them! The 2 gentlemen said come and play with us, we passed. :( Why were we treated this way? Its not about what happened, its about how it was handled, very poorly and a "too bad for you" attitude.
Par 3 course is fun, and for a good price especially if you have a resident card. The old guy in the pro shop about came unglued because my buddy was wearing a sleeveless shirt today. He threw some insults his way, which we thought were a joke, and later realized werent. Is there a dress code? Ever gonna do anything with the bunker/mud pit on the 8th hole of the par 3, or is it a retention pond? Played tons of courses around the state including Roaring Fork Club, Air Force Academy, etc. and havent received any lip like this public course dished out today. Will likely go elsewhere next time. Stay humble pro shop people.
I have had nothing but a wonderful experience at this course. From the starters and golf shop staff everyone has been friendly and accommodates changes to our party including my young niece and nephew. The restaurant is great and staff friendly and I enjoy breakfast before starting out. It is a nice course with great scenery and challenges. I voted to add funding to do some remodeling to improve the clubhouse and look forward to the face lift!
I love the par 3 course out at South Suburban; its well kept, great for beginners, and super cheap. During the week its only $13 for 9 holes, and there is a coupon on the South Suburban Parks and Rec website for buy one-get one free greens fees, so you and a friend can play 9 holes for under $7 each! You will not find anything cheaper, and the course is very nice considering the price. Highly Recommend!
The recently re designed par 3 is great. The only problem i had, the lawn mower person ran over my Voltik Vivid ball with his lawn mower and instead of a sorry or a ball that would compensate my now shreded voltik, the guy at the front in the pro shop gives me a sleeve from the basket on the ground of $3 a sleeve Srixon.. Not good form. Not good at all in the club house.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced course with challenging greens and good to excellent conditions (tee to green) this is a great option. "the burb" isnt going to blow your socks off aesthetically but it will challenge you. Hint - if your above the hole all day I guarantee your not writing a glowing review:)

As far as public par 3s go, South Suburban is kept in good shape and is a lot of fun. I can get nine holes in on a Sunday before I have to go to work, and its a good way to spend some time with friends. Course takes about two hours if youre just starting out (as I am)
Not an overly difficulty course, but the greens were a challenge. Like other golfers, Id rather have challenging fast greens than slow boring ones. Lots of undulations on the greens too, youll often aim three to four feet left or right of the hole. Friendly staff.
This is easily the worst golf course Ive played in Colorado. The pins were ALL roughly 3-6 yards from the edge of the green. Didnt see a cart girl til hole 9. Wont play here again. There are literally hundreds of better options in the Denver area.
I played the Par 3 course a few times and it seems like it is kept in pretty good condition. The clubhouse is currently under construction, so their clubhouse is temporarily in a trailer. There is a decent size putting green and a driving range.
Consistently my favorite course near home. "The Burb" has got it all!!! Wonderful place for all ages and skill levels! I ounce shot a 29 on the front nine in league play. Ha! Enjoy, and have Fun!!!
Ive played South Suburban a number of times. The staff is always helpful and unpretentious. The course is in very good shape - both the regulation and Par 3 courses. Great value for the price.
Im used to playing on private and country club courses so I was very surprised at the quality of this muni-course and had a WONDERFUL time. Will definitely be back.
The staff is very rude and they treat kids like crap. Also the course is always in horrible shape because the greens are always covered in unfixed divots.
Second time Ive ever played golf was at this course and I loved the Par 3! Very fun, cant wait to go back.
