Escaping the heat is easy if you head to the mountain golf resorts of Colorado like The Broadmoor, Keystone or Telluride. Here is a sample of some of the best.
Cherry Hills has long been the standard bearer for Colorado traditional golf, but with the 2006 opening of Ballyneal Golf & Hunt Club in northeastern Colorado, things have changed in a 21st-century minute. Here's a look at a few of the most classic golf courses in Colorado.
As the only golf course within the Boulder city limits, Flatirons is an overachieving muni with a country club-style layout but a welcoming atmosphere for casual and serious golfers. Walking or riding 18 holes here -- or just taking advantage of the practice facilities -- is a great way to enjoy a day outdoors in Boulder if you're not up for a higher rpm activity like cycling or hiking.
Driving the Rockies in search of Colorado's Western Slope golf gems is a scenic adventure. Cedaredge Golf Club is just down the Grand Mesa slope in Cedaredge, and award-winning Devil's Thumb Golf Club is minutes away in Delta. In Montrose, look for the Bridges Golf and County Club, the Links at Cobble Creek and well-traversed municipal Black Canyon Golf Club, among many others. And what many travel golfers don't know is you can play these courses nine months or more out of the year.
The Broadmoor, Ballyneal and the new TPC Colorado are a memorable threesome in Colorado.
