Default Denver, CO November

Just got my travel details, I’ll be in Denver (near the airport) for a week in November for training. I don’t know that I’ll have a lot of free time in daylight hours, but if you had to pick one or two courses on that side of town to hit, what would they be? (Assuming it’s not a dumping blizzard that week, who knows...). Not a huge park golf fan, prefer woods golf. But anything that shows off the local biome/terrain is cool.

If you're going to be close to DIA, and short on time, I would recommend Adams Hollow which isn't too far from the airport.

I agree, Adams Hollow is the only course in the area where you'll find a good number of trees. I would also pop down to Dry Dock Brewery to grab some beer and a quick 9 hole round at their small course. Most Denver courses are pretty flat and set in parks (the others near you Green Valley Ranch, Centre Hills and Expo are all like this)

Thanks guys. I see there are some super legit courses waaay the other side of town. Unless I manage to get an extra travel day that drive is not gonna happen so Adams Hollow looks like the one.

I'll also say Adam's Hollow. Not any true woods golf in Denver proper.

Beaver and Bailey are about 90 minutes from the airport. I would make the time.

They look awesome. It will just depend on what time my simulator stuff is on day 4 and 5...if I have a late evening or an early morning I could go for it. If it’s midday I’ll be hosed.

No option to take a weekend day before or after? I've bagged a lot of courses the weekend before/after a work trip. Pay for my hotel and rental car, of course.

I’m going to request it. We’ll see what happens.

Pack your understable discs to account for the elevation change, less turn and more fade when playing up there. If you want to really see what Colorado has to offer you have to venture out of Denver and into the foothills. If you can swing it I would make the time to drive out to Beaver/Bailey area. If you cant swing it then prepare for some mostly open park style golf.
