There are a lot of adult activities available in that desert playground called Las Vegas and for the golfer these activities include a wide variety of courses at prices ranging from reasonable to expensive.
Golf in Colorado can be wonderful. Of course, golf anywhere can be wonderful, but it’s hard for other places to compete with Colorado at its best. When you combine golf with the state’s spectacular geography, such as the Colorado National Monument, there’s a thrill that you just can’t get anywhere else. A visit to the National Monument in far western Colorado can be almost as spectacular as a visit to the Grand Canyon, and playing golf along its base is simply breathtaking. That’s the irresistible appeal of golf in and around Grand Junction, a city of 59,000 that nestles right up to the National Monument.
Just a thought Mr. Couples, New England Golf Monthly would like to introduce you to our 2011 PLayer of The Year on The PGA Tour. Keegan Bradley just won the Grand Slam in Bermuda and held off a streaking Charles Schwartzel in the final 9 holes to take away the Trophy. This is the third time in 5 months PGA President Allen Wronowski has handed Keegan Bradley a trophy and a check .
With The Byron Nelson, The PGA Championship and The PGA Grand Slam Keegan has earned over 3.2 Million in first place money alone and with this win will sit within the top 5 money leaders for 2011.
Once almost a shoo-in for the Player of the Year award, PGA champ Keegan Bradley now seems to be on the outside looking in. Bradley will be teeing it up in Bermuda next week as Luke Donald and Webb Simpson vie for the tour money title and, potentially, best-player honors.
St. George, Utah is about two hours from Las Vegas and less than an hour from Zion National Park. But St. George holds its own with these two overwhelming attractions by occupying a special niche--great golf at reasonable prices. And there’s no extra charge for the great weather. St. George has its own micro weather system and is usually a warm, dry, wonderful place to play golf.
Home James met us at the Denver Airport heading 65 miles west of Denver and in less than two hours we had climbed nearly 3000 feet in elevation to our snuggly condo in Granby Ranch. Although we are in the heart of ski country, this area may get more tourists in the summer. We are a few miles from Rocky Mountain National Park, There are numerous dude ranches and several golf courses in the area and we are close to the banks of the Colorado River. There is also plenty of wildlife roaming the neighborhood including Elk, Black Bear, Antelope, Coyote and Mountain Lions.
Allen Wronowski warmly ushered me into his cramped, sterile cubicle in the PGAMember Business Center located on a dimly lit corridor of the Venetian Hotel inLas Vegas, his command center for the two days of the PGA Expo, held from August 22-24th. The room lacked the trappings befitting the President of the PGA of America, and must have been a far cry from his regular office at Hillendale Country Club outside Baltimore, Maryland, where he is the PGA Director of Golf.
