Golf enthusiasts looking to play in Denver will have no problem finding top courses, according to a recent report from Golf Digest. It’s not surprising given the stunning scenery, not to mention the city being an all-around pleasant place to live year-round. So who takes top honors?
Just outside of Denver, The Country Club at Castle Pines makes the list. Highlights here include a Jack Nicklaus signature course surrounded by picturesque pine trees and panoramic views. The 18-hole championship course appeals to golfers of all levels thanks to features such as elevated greens, rolling contours and Pike’s Peak, Mt. Evans and Long’s Peak just in the background. Clinics and classes are available to those who want to improve their game.
Another contender for top course is the Cherry Hills Country Club, which will host the BMW Championship in 2014. Featuring a 7,000-plus-yard layout designed by great golf architect William Flynn, the course built back in 1922 has its fair share of historic moments including Arnold Palmer winning the US Open here back in 1960. Other greats such as Phil Mickelson and Ralph Guldahl have played here. Today, visitors enjoy playing along the tree-lined fairways, challenging holes and more.
Along with an array of attractions such as these distinguished golf courses, Denver offers residents an attractive destination to live and work.
