Denver locks $20.5 million deal to buy Park Hill Golf Club

DENVER – City officials of Denver on Thursday announced a $20.5 million deal with a trust that owns the Park Hill Golf Club to buy the 155-acre site, putting to rest some questions about its future.

The Denver Post reports that other questions linger, including whether the city will keep all of the site as open space or parkland — or allow development on part of it. It may not remain a golf course, given its owner’s assertions about the contracted operator’s lack of profitability.

Clayton Early Learning, which manages the George W. Clayton Trust, has been seeking to sell the site in a community-engagement process that began last year. The organization long has operated off golf course revenue, and the trust has owned the land since 1899.
