Combine it with a road trip and see some sights now that you’re retired? Looks like Colorado golf courses can offer up some pretty spectacular golf and scenery, complete with wildlife while you golf. Senior golfers, bring your cameras!

According to Colorado Golfer News (original images & article), in the fall the elk and moose are known to invade certain golf courses, along with the usual summertime visitors (fox, deer, chipmunks and birds). At Lake Estes and Big Estes Park golf courses they occasionally have to shut down the golf courses in September because of the elk. These golf courses are open well into the fall, sometimes even in the winter.

At Grand Lake Golf Course the moose apparently “hang out” around the 18th fairway. Moosehead Beer, anyone? This fall looks like a good time for nature lovers – seniors, 50+, retirees – or vacationers old enough to play golf – to get out, and get fit doing some autumn golfing.
