On the course: Demo Day, seniors play

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN – Forget the test drive. Test the driver.

The Aspen Golf Club will host its 20th annual Demo Day from 3-6 p.m. Thursday, June 18.

Representatives from equipment lines such as Callaway, Cleveland Golf, Cobra, Nike Golf, Ping and Titleist will be on hand. Golfers can try out various clubs for free.

Coming up June 25, it’s the Harold Whitcomb Memorial Cup, benefiting the Pitkin County Senior Center. The entry deadline for the event is 4 p.m. June 22.

The event is open to players age 55 and older. Play will be in a mixed scramble format with equally matched teams.

Sign-in on tournament day is 8:30 a.m., with a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m.

The $70 entry fee includes golf, a cart, lunch, muffins and surprises.

Call 920-5432 for an entry form.

The course also offers golf clinics for men and women throughout the summer. Ladies’ clinics are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9-10 a.m. For details on the weekly topics and to sign up, call the pro shop at 925-2145. Preregistration is required for all classes.

Men’s golf clinics take place Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Preregistration is required; call the pro shop on Saturdays to register.

Incidentally, the Aspen Golf Club was recently ranked No. 17 on Golfweek Magazine’s 50 best municipal courses for 2008-’09.

The Aspen Golf Club was one of three courses in Colorado to be recognized and earned the top spot for the state. The other featured courses were Fossil Trace in Golden and Murphy Creek in Aurora.

“Aspen is surrounded by really high-level courses on Golfweek’s list,” noted Parks Director Jeff Woods in a city press release announcing the honor. “Harding Park in San Francisco, No. 16 on the list, is hosting the President’s Cup in 2009, which is the top international golf event in the U.S. this year. That really says a lot about how highly Aspen is regarded.”

Season pass sales at the Aspen Golf Club, the city noted, are up this year, compared to 2008.
