Swingers Golf Lounge
One of the first snows in the Denver area today and golfing is still on the agenda. Jeans and a t-shirt will even suffice, and I don’t think I have to worry about my clubs getting any water damage. Swingers Golf Lounge in Lone Tree, Colorado has got the greens going on all year around. And these are not just any greens; they come from courses in Pebble Beach, the Carolinas, Texas, and Myrtle Beach for a total of over 50 championship courses to choose from.
All virtual of course, and in the form of the PGA Golf Simulator, which is one of the most accurate golf stimulators in the world. So looks like when I hit the ball in the sand, and off the course, it was accurate. And best of all, when I nailed it, that means I can take credit! Three D graphics, high speed photography and a stimulator tracking system make you feel like you are really out there. Well minus the golf carts, and beer carts…but you can always head to the bar to refresh up on a drink and also a full menu.
Each player can finish 18 holes in about an hour. Or each player can play as much or as little as they want. If you rent the course for an hour, you can all rotate, or you can rent the course for even longer. The charge is 30 dollars an hour; you can rent clubs there for ten bucks. So get ready to tee off!
