Denver is not only Colorado's capital and largest city, but also a popular gateway to the spectacular Rocky Mountains, where both skiing and golf make for popular pastimes. Denver itself is largely flat, but there are still some worthy daily fee golf courses. Head west towards the foothills of the Rockies however, and you can play some courses that are more spectacular in nature without having to make the drive on I-70 into Summit County. At an elevation of 5,200 feet, Denver's winters do get pretty cold, but it's certainly possible to play golf in the winter time despite the mountains having a full snowpack, and summertimes are very comfortable for golf. Nearby cities like Boulder and Colorado Springs make for easy day trips as well.
