After landing in Denver, our adventure began at Castle Pines Golf Club in Castle Rock, Colorado. Castle Pines was designed in the early 80's by Jack Nicklaus. I am generally not a fan of Nicklaus designs but wanted to play this course because I had heard about recent renovations undertaken to make the course more playable. The two assistant professionals I played with did a very good job of pointing out the changes that were made. I enjoyed the course and applaud it for taking steps to make it more enjoyable for all.

After a wonderful dinner at the lodge at Sutton Bay we retired to our room excited to tackle the big course in the morning.
