Nine historic holes near downtown Grand Junction
Lincoln Park Golf Course was established in 1926 and is located in the heart of beautiful Grand Junction. It’s a regulation nine-hole golf course — with an appealing mix of fairways, water hazards and sand traps — can be stretched out to roughly 3,300 yards, said PGA Golf Professional Brian Franco. “Lincoln Park welcomes all ages and skill levels with four sets of tees in addition to our family tees,” Franco said. “Although relatively flat, the greens provide challenges for all skill levels.”
The City of Grand Junction says the course was “born in the era of mashies and niblicks,” but it can “still defend itself from the over-sized drivers and hot golf balls of today.” Located just minutes from historic downtown Grand Junction, golfers can improve their games at the course’s 10-acre practice facility or try a lap around the walkable nine-hole course, Franco said. “With smooth rolling, subtle breaking greens, it is a delightful place to test your golf skills,” he said. There’s a full-service pro shop and snack bar. Rental clubs, pull carts, and golf cars are also available. Lessons from PGA Professionals are available by appointment.

The nine holes at Lincoln Park are somewhat unique, Franco said. “There is a short par 3 and a long par 3, a drivable par 4 for longer hitters, two medium-length par 4s and one tough long par 4. Also, the par 5s are two different animals — one is a short par 5 and reachable in two by many, and the other is considerably longer and requires two well played shots with distance to get home in two,” he said. “With that being said, even though Lincoln Park is a nine-hole facility, it requires a variety of shots to be played in nine holes.”

Tees: Lincoln Park Golf Course has six sets of tees. The Black Tees are generally used by low handicap golfers and are a good test for even the most accomplished golfer. The Blue Tees are a good test, as well, and most of the Men’s Club Members play from these tees on a regular basis. The Red Tees are the tees that are most commonly used. High handicap golfers, ladies who want a little challenge, and middle school and high school-age junior golfers typically play from the Red Tees. The Yellow Tees are predominately used by Ladies Club Members, but are also used by senior golfers and little kids alike. Family Tees are also available, which are designated by a disc in the fairway or tee box on the par 3s. The scorecard has a yardage at the bottom of it for Level 1 and Level 2.
