When you think of Colorado, golf isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind. However, golf is extremely popular in the Denver metro area. With over 200 public and private golf courses, many open year-round, it is not unusual to see people golfing right after a snow storm and taking advantage of the many days of sunshine here in our fine city. Before you go golfing, you want to make sure that your equipment is up to par (pun intended). Here are some of Denver’s top golf shops for all of your clothing and equipment needs.
