Colorado

Thinking about a Colorado golf vacation? Often when one hears the word Colorado, thoughts of sky scraping peaks, snow and the great outdoors are not far behind. Generally regarded as a destination for winter sports enthusiasts, Colorado ought not to be pigeonholed, albeit flatteringly, as such. Not long after the sun has banished the powder from the hillsides, the first gentle kerplunk of a ball in the hole rouses the devoted horde that is Colorado’s golfing population. Colorado offers a supreme golfing experience and is fast becoming a golf vacation destination in it’s own right. Many of the state’s golf courses offer numerous tee time deals with discounted rounds of golf. The next time you play a round of eighteen holes, save time and money with golfing coupons.

With nigh five million inhabitants spread across the 104,000 square miles of Northern Colorado, Southern Colorado, the Denver Metro Area, the Rockies and the Western Slope, the state offers roughly 240 golf courses. From the sun-parched plains of the east and south to the craggy peaks of the Front Range and beyond, one is never far from a meandering municipal or a Jack Nicklaus mind bender.

Well adapted to catering to the whims of hill shredding tourists, resort towns like Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, Durango and Steamboat pull out all of the stops for summertime swingers. Après skis become après greens in the long days of summer in the Rocky Mountains. Schnapps laced hot chocolates in the lodges are replaced by crisp gin and tonics at the 19th hole under the shadow of majestic peaks with sweeping views of near endless wilderness. The same health spas that massage away aches and pains after a day on the slopes will still be open to work out those double bogey blues.

Coloradoans have interests as diverse as the geography of their home state. If you are a hophead, they have you covered with scads of microbreweries from tiny towns like Idaho Springs to the Denver metropolis and beyond. Craving some hustle and bustle? Apart from amazing golf courses to play, Colorado’s cities offer many art galleries and shops by day and even more bars, restaurants and clubs after dark. If live music is your scene, catch a show at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater quietly nestled in the foothills west of Denver.

In Colorado, tourists can have it all. From wilderness camping to urban links from river rafting to tennis, it’s all available in The Centennial State. Luxury comes with a smile and a lack of pretension in the Rockies, so when planning your summer golf vacation, keep Colorado on your radar.
