Of all the events hosted at Golden based Three Tomatoes Steakhouse / Fossil Trace Golf Club, none come with as much pomp as weddings. The steakhouse? part of the Three Tomatoes Catering Companies which has been catering since 1977? kindly provides hundreds of witnesses, some of whom reach more than 1,000 feet in height. Although they can?t sign their names or raise a toast, the Rocky Mountains have stoically observed the many vows exchanged in the verdant ceremonial gardens?and the professionally-staffed parties that followed.
Three Tomatoes Steakhouse has been dishing out delicious meals since 2003 and maintains a stable of specialists who can customize menus, fill rooms with flowers and decorations, and provide day-of event assistance for everything from a business lunch to a birthday party. The combination of picturesque scenery and attentive service has earned Three Tomatoes a steady five-star rating from Wedding Wire, as well as a spot on The Knot's list of 2010's best wedding venues.
Even under less matrimonial circumstances, the steakhouse with its gorgeous views of the Rocky Mountains, aims to make any evening feel like a special event with an inviting and casual atmosphere. On days with clear skies, guests can opt for dining a la fresco and enjoy their meal on the restaurant's outdoor patio that overlooks the front range. Chefs prepare a selection of seasonal dishes, spotlighting slices of Certified Angus beef alongside chicken, seafood, and vegetarian plates. The steaks come artfully grilled or pan-seared in a variety of cuts, from tenderloins to new york strips, and derive bold flavor from sauces such as brandy cream and roasted-garlic chipotle. The steakhouse also hosts happy hour food and drink specials from 3 ? 6 p.m. daily.
Like farming, picnics, and attempting to climb a skyscraper with suction cups, golf outings are dependent on ideal weather conditions. Striker Golf's facility takes rain and cold out of the equation by offering golfers a chance to play in a climate-controlled compound. Within the 4,200-square-foot facility rest four expansive hitting bays for practicing long drives and a 700-square-foot putting green for fine-tuning one's short game. HD golf simulators replicate rounds on famous courses through vivid images and precise motion-tracking sensors to give players an authentic experience without having to dodge runaway golf carts.

Nestled in a gently rolling valley of the Rocky Mountain foothills, Raccoon Creek takes golfers meandering across 7,045 yards of fairways dotted with scenic water hazards. To compensate for its somewhat sparse tree lines, the course’s fairways and greens are flanked with a multitude of cavernous bunkers that—unlike guessing where the plumber hid the toilet seat—challenges players without sacrificing fun. Glassy waters and sprawling golf-ball beaches wreathe the green at the 17th hole, creating a daunting tee shot that earned it the distinction of the course’s signature hole. For those who prefer to cruise the links in a cozy conveyance, Raccoon Creek’s carts are all equipped with GPS technology, which keeps players abreast of the whereabouts of upcoming greens, intervening hazards, and heist-planning squirrels. A fully stocked pro shop, driving range, and scenic restaurant round out Raccoon Creek’s course-side facilities.
