I will be going to Vail at the end of January for a week. I know Denver often times has much more mild weather Than we do here in Minnesota. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any courses open year round?

Every course in the Denver area is open year round or at least I don't know of any that actually close. January is tough, you could have sunny and temps pushing 60* or a couple feet of snow lol. All the mountain courses will be closed until at least March.

Okay awesome! That's kind of what I was hoping for. If we get lucky with some nice weather head into Denver to sneak in a round.

Grand junction can be an easier drive and better weather. I live in vail and make trips to both Denver and grand junction to play golf in oct/nov and March/April.  Have not played in Colorado in January in the 11 years I’ve lived in the mountains though.

But you can't hit Blackhawk on the way back to Vail if you head towards GJ. :)

It could be wishful thinking but if temps are in the 40s or 50s and some courses are open I may just have to try and sneak in a round.

I'll check out Redlands mesa! I'm open to any other suggestions. We may be heading to blue moon brewery so it may have to be in Denver if we play. But I won't rule out grand junction just yet

As others have noted it can be Hit or Miss around that time of year. The courses really never shut down here, just if weather is good enough to play, which really depends in the player too.

I was driving by Riverdale Dunes today around 1:30 this afternoon on E470 and looked over to see the irrigation system was going full on. Was a little surprised to see it honestly.

We have had some pretty good weather lately so you might get lucky.

If it's 40/50, sunny, and not windy, it will feel like 60/70. One of the perks of living a mile closer to the sun. If the last two conditions aren't met, then all bets are off.

If you have to go to downtown Denver for some beer, I would actually recommend Great Divide Brewery. Their Yeti Imperial Stout is ever so tasty. Blue Moon has lost some of its charm ever since being bought by Coors.

Agreed, try a couple of the "non-famous" breweries as well.

Chris, you've at least skied and golfed in the same day though, right?

Redlands Mesa is definitely one to consider.  I've never played it but it is on my very short list of public courses to play in my home state.
Titleist 905S 9.5 degree Graphite Design Tour AD DI-6 stiff
Titleist 906F2 15 degree Fujikura Pro 73 Tour Spec stiff (6g shaft plug)
Taylormade SLDR 2 Hybrid Fujikura Motore stiff
Ben Hogan Apex '99 blades (3-E) Nippon Modus Tour 120 stiff
Scratch Golf GW and LW Nippon Modus Tour 120 stiff
Byron Morgan Epic Day Long Pipe CU plated

There are several around Blue Moon. I like Prost, Factotum, Diebolt, and Our Mutual Friend in that area.
