Table Mountain Inn, Golden, Colorado

Where Will the Course Be Held?

Table Mountain Inn in Golden, Colorado (near Denver).

I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite places to teach. The hotel has a definite cozy southwest vibe and a great restaurant (Table Mountain Grill and Cantina) which I highly recommend.

I also enjoyed the small town atmosphere of downtown Golden. For ideas about things to do in historic Golden, see this LINK.
