Mountain High

Great golf with an altitude

5:00 pm Unwind from the day’s activities with a soak in the legendary hot spring-fed pool at the Hotel Colorado. For more than a century, pilgrims have traveled to the therapeutic 104-degree waters. Your back and your casting arm will thank you.

8:00 pm As darkness falls, enjoy the expansive Colorado night sky and reflect on a perfect Rocky Mountain golf day.

Rule School
When playing in thin mountain air, it helps to tee the ball high to encourage a higher trajectory with as much carry as possible. But every golfer needs to pay attention when they use extra-length tees ( The USGA actually imposes a restriction on tee length, requiring that no tee exceed four inches. Also, a tee can’t be designed to indicate line of play or influence movement on the ball. Brush-like tees are considered conforming, as long as they adhere to the same rules as wooden pegs.
