Colorado has nearly 300 golf courses for groups to choose from, each offering its own special variation of elevation, climate, vegetation and wildlife. Here are some notable and unique options from across the state.  

Colorado welcomed its first groundup golf course development in nearly 10 years this summer with the opening of TPC Colorado in Berthoud. The 18-hole championship course was designed to accommodate professional tournaments and has a well-appointed clubhouse.

For a European-style experience, golfers will love Ballyneal Golf Club, a private golf destination in Holyoke built on a unique sand dune formation in the high plains of eastern Colorado. 

Groups can experience America’s highest elevation golf course at 10,152 feet in Leadville. Mount Massive Golf Course has nine holes surrounded by the highest mountains in the state and is near the headwaters of the Arkansas River Valley.  

With 18 holes located at the base of Colorado National Monument, The Golf Club at Redlands Mesa offers desert-style golf with dramatic vistas, 11 elevated tees, 41 bunkers and unique hole-shaping.

Whether a team is still working from home, or has made a phased return to the office, the past few months have seemed monotonous with not as many in-person meetings and events to break up work weeks. Meeting with a group boosts motivation, and Zoom meetings can’t compare when it comes to rallying morale. After months at home, planning small meetings and corporate getaways away from home is a great way to motivate and revitalize a team’s performance–especially when the destination provides all of the benefits that Colorado offers.

 

As working from home has become the norm since March, so has connecting with coworkers using webcams and Skype. Button downs and sweatpants have become a work-friendly outfit, and Zoom happy hours were the only way to grab a drink with friends. Especially for teams that used to meet in the office every day, a chance to shake up the (new) same old and safely reconnect in person is much needed after months apart. An out-of-state trip could be a memorable way to sync up with coworkers again, as well as do wonders for motivation and productivity upon return.

 

So far, webcams and Zoom meetings have been an essential part of 2020. While digital options are functional placeholders for meetings, chatting with a coworker over Skype doesn’t always set up a team for success. Human connection is vital to team building, and hosting safe, small meetings is a great way to revitalize teams after months of working from home.
