First of all, don't waste your time on any of the courses on the Front Range, this includes CO Springs and Denver cities. BeaverRanch
in Conifer is the best on your route by far.Ghost town
is cool because of the scenery, and your wife might enjoy.
I hear great things about Bailey
but I never got a chance to play that while living out there.
I also hear great things about Phantom Falls
If it was me, and the wife was ok with it, I would get all your golfing in in 1 day in the Conifer area. That's where the best are.
If you can't, Estes Park YMCA
is not terrible by any means and that is right by RMNP. It has some fun holes. And Winter Park Resort
(Rocky Mountain Village DGC) can be fun too.
Please don't waste your time playing any of the cities, or for that matter, even hanging out in them. If you are going to the mountains, spend all your time in the mountains. The Front Range is basically just an over-crowded Western Kansas. With legal drugs. YOu will spend most of your time sitting in your car fighting traffic.
Take some flippy plastic!!
