Play Golf At These Public Courses in Denver | The Denver Ear

August is National Golf Month, and to celebrate, we have listed a map of all the public golf courses in Denver.

What is the Difference Between a Public Golf Course and a Private Golf Course?

A public golf course is a course where you can pay a fee for each round you play or a daily fee and it can often offer some sort of membership program. Public golf courses can either be owned by private companies or individuals, or can be owned by a municipality. A private golf course is owned by a private company or individuals but you can only play if you are a member.
