Nestled in the cool shadows of Cheyenne Mountain, Cheyenne Shadows Golf Club’s 18-hole course invites clubbers with its scenic layout cleaved through high-desert terrain. Drives knife through the air with a little extra gusto, as the dry desert air—at an elevation of 6,224-feet above sea level—and golf angels conspire to add length to shots. The club’s verdant expanse also encompasses a multifaceted learning center, including a driving range with grass hitting areas, a short-game green flanked by a practice bunker, a putting green, and a three-hole children’s course. The casual dining room of Mulligan’s Grill awaits to quench hunger pangs with a menu of burgers, Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, and salads.
After performing more than 170,000 chiropractic adjustments for over 4,200 patients, it is no stretch to call Dr. Terry Smith of Smith Chiropractic an expert in his field. Dr. Smith practices a variety of chiropractic techniques including activator, Thompson Drop, and chiropractic biophysics to help align the spines of his clients and elicit the envy of jellyfish. They also offer decompression treatments to alleviate low back injuries, such as disc bulging and sciatica, or arm and leg pain. Smith Chiropractic were among the first chiropractic offices in Colorado Springs to adopt class-4 laser treatments for non-surgical pain relief, reduction of inflammation, and healing.
Aphrodite Skin Solutions rejuvenates complexions and restores a factory-fresh sheen to skin with a menu of facial, back, and body treatments.

Microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels strip the topmost layer of dull skin to reveal the dewy visage waiting beneath, and back treatments combine skincare and massage to soothe workday stresses from slouching in chairs or hurdling obstructive cubicle walls.
At the Eye Care Center of Colorado Springs, licensed Doctors of Optometry employ state-of-the-art technology to peruse peepers with expert care. An eye exam safeguards against the unexpected assailment of serious visual vexations, such as glaucoma and provides prescriptive information pertaining to corrective lenses. Although not included with this Groupon, Eye Care Center’s display cases sport several styles of designer eyeglasses, as well as backroom shelves stocked with name-brand and specialty contact lenses for eyeballs in need of assistance.
Dr. Richard Koch, a former army captain whose family refers to him as a human encyclopedia, and Dr. Doug Koch have been filling cavities, installing implants, and straightening teeth for more than two decades. The dental professionals describe themselves as conservative, ensuring that every procedure they do is necessary, instead of yanking out every tooth with spinach clinging to it.
They work in an office that eases anxiety with treatment massage chairs, and offers a toy tower that rewards children who didn’t eat one of the dentist’s fingers. They use advanced technology such as digital x-rays and a soft tissue laser, and they update their equipment every 1–2 years.
Partnership for Excellence's dynamic twosome of David M. Johnson, D.D.S. and Branon D. Johnson, D.D.S. apply 40 years of combined dental experience and state of the art technology to vanquish teeth-deteriorating plaque and supply a polished shine to glimmering mouth-diamonds. During an examination ($83 value) and cleaning ($87 value), a professional tooth technician will do a head count to make sure all teeth are present before a power-washing that blasts away leftover residue from last week's bout of geophagy-induced clay eating. A powerful x-ray ($133 value) should reveal any signs of decay, bone abnormality, or the existence of thought-thieving tooth trolls. Whatever your oral arcade calls for, the dentists at Partnership for Excellence have the necessary tokens.
