Colorado Avid Golfer has some nice $52.80 specials starting on Monday.

I played Indian Peaks in Lafayette last weekend. Very nice course--particularly since it's very walkable (even though I was riding a cart). If I didn't live on the other side of the state (:D), I'd play it more often. (Took us 90 minutes to get back home due to CU traffic and a blocked lane near Colfax/25.)

pretty bad time to move to Colorado, golf wise at least.

but I'm down in Parker once a week for a couple days which is right next to highlands ranch so if you ever want to play let me know. I'm really trying to improve my game and I'm going to the range at least 3 times a week sometimes more.

I was going to hit Family Sports range tomorrow around the lunch-hour, but I have to go into the office instead. I'll probably go next Tuesday and Thursday, though. I spent an hour at the short game area, and it improved my wedge play immensely last weekend.

I was supposed to play Murphy Creek on Saturday with my golf league. Sadly, way too many family activities this weekend to consider it.

Actually, I may take my kiddos mini-golfing at Family Sports on Saturday afternoon so my wife can bake a cake for my nephew's birthday party on Sunday. But definitely no real golfing for me this weekend. :(

Well that was an epic fail. Went to the Family Sports range instead.

Anyone getting out this weekend? I'm playing my course both days but could be convinced to play elsewhere.

I would like to comment on the weather we have been having. It is just great. Talking to my friends back in MN and they are all ice fishing!! I live in west Littleton and play the Meadows a bit. I know a lot of people hate that course but its close to my house. If anyone wants to get out and play just let me know.

Hard to believe that we are playing in short sleeves in December! Played Saddle Rock yesterday and it is in decent shape for this time of the year. Thought it was a little pricey for December at $55.

I'm looking for a good outdoor fitting place for Titleist equipment as well. I'm willing to travel around if needed.

I'de like to get new shafts for my irons and fitted for a new driver by next summer.

Of course the good weather comes to an end just in time for the weekend! We were spoiled in November though. Great shot of CPN!

As for higher end club fitters, d'Lance Golf does them in the Inverness area, and there is a place that does them at Green Valley Ranch as well, called Gott Golf.

As for teaching pros, the two I'd recommend for better players are John Ward (Out of Family Sports - South metro) and Perry Holmes (Out of Coal Creek - North metro). Should be able to google both. They're both good players themselves, I prefer to get my lessons from guys who can beat me.

Thanks a ton. I am NOT a fan of getting fitted via launch monitors. Your numbers may say one thing but seeing my ball flight in reality is another. Numbers + outside = win.

haven't been on this site in a while but Gott Golf does outdoor fitting with a Flightscope monitor to help with tuning. They have practically every piece of equipment you will ever want. Try them out as they are WAY cheaper than d'Lance and just as good or even better. d'Lance uses out of date equipment and is all indoor.

I did an outdoor Vokey wedge fitting last year at Bear Creek Golf Club. They are the regional Titleist fitters, had ProV1 range balls and provided a first class outdoor experience.

Quick Question Fellas - I am moving to Boulder in early summer from Palo Alto, CA. I have been doing a little research around online and was hoping to find the best place to practice and work on my short game close to Boulder. From what I have gathered, the best option is Colorado National.
I usually hit balls at least 5 days a week and play maybe once a week for a twilight type deal. I still play in quite a few Amateur events and play to scratch. I am looking for the longest, toughest, and best facility course close enough to Boulder to drive each day. I am more concerned with the practice facility at this point than hearing back about everyone's favorite course.
thanks for the help fellas!

I live on the south end of the Denver metro area and have not been to all of the northern metro courses. However, I have played Colorado National several times and their practice facility is very good. The University of Colorado golf team practices there.
