Lining up his shot, the golfer draws a breath and putts his ball down the last green on the legendary Jubilee Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. He checks the clock?all 18 holes in one hour. This would be impossible at the real St. Andrews between walking from hole to hole or fighting off the rabid venus flytraps that guard the greens, but in the PGA Tour simulator, it's par for the course. Visitors compete on more than 50 other championship courses from around the world with their own clubs or rented TaylorMade clubs, blasting golf balls toward the screens projecting the two simulators' immersive 3-D worlds. Along with 18-hole games, patrons can practice their drive on virtual ranges.
For nongolfers, the lounge stocks foosball and billiards tables, a skee ball machine, cornhole on the patio, and plenty of high-definition TVs to catch the latest sports.

At Runners Roost, the staff members don’t just outfit athletes with shoes in the right sizes—they make sure the footwear matches each wearer’s individual needs with a thorough gait-and-arch analysis. As discussed during an interview with Colorado and Company, the staff records video of clients’ feet as they jog on a treadmill, then examines still frames to assess whether the shoes are offering proper support. With this method, customers can find the ideal footwear from brands such as New Balance, Saucony, and Nike for both women and men.
Channeling wisdom collected over the company’s 35 years in business, the pros at Runners Roost’s numerous Colorado locations also outfit athletes with accessories and sweat-wicking apparel perfect for triathlons over hot coals. In addition to supporting feet, Runners Roost has supported the local community throughout the years by sponsoring high-school cross-country and track meets, marathons, and other events.
Beauty may only be skin deep, but at Zolarium Tanning Studio, that's OK. Versed in a vast array of tanning and skincare services, the studio’s technicians help their clientele achieve golden-bronze hues without having to withstand the sun's creepy leer. Each one is Smart Tan certified, a benchmark that measures each operator's knowledge of ultraviolet light, safe tanning practices, and ability to disassemble a tanning bed should it become sentient. They use this knowledge to monitor each tanner in their studio simultaneously, through Zolarium's networked array of horizontal and vertical tanning beds.
The beautifying treatments don't stop at tanning; DaVinci teeth whitening, Evolv airbrush, and a plethora of skincare lotions help clients maintain all manner of youthful glows. Zolarium also keeps the community looking good, giving back through charitable efforts such as sponsoring the Denver Firefighter Calendar every year.
A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.
While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.
