Excitement Grows Amidst New Clubhouse Constr uction at Foothills Golf Cour se!
Featuring 36 holes and a driving range with expansive mountain views, Foothills Golf Course is one of the Denver Metro Area’s most popular public courses However, the original clubhouse, built in 1974, was no longer serving the needs of daily golfers and the nearby community. Foothills Park & Recreation District sought a new design with an expanded restaurant and terrace (including an indoor-outdoor bar), events space to accommodate various tournaments, and indoor storage for the course’s fleet of golf carts
While Foothills is a public course, many of those who frequent the facility are regulars, creating a sense of ownership among the course’s patrons With this in mind, our vision was to elevate the expected quality of a public clubhouse facility, while still maintaining a “golf-first” experience The building is designed to
last, with the incorporation of several sustainable features, including a mass timber structure, a highly insulated metal rainscreen, glazing that provides ample daylight throughout the space and strategically placed shading devices along the western exposure of the building.
One beloved feature of the original clubhouse was the elevated upper level, which allowed for sweeping views of the Front Range to the west The new clubhouse maintains this elevated feature, lifting the entire main level above the 18th hole This architectural move provided a wonderful opportunity for a west-facing deck and to treat the earth outside the building like an amphitheater, allowing for more indoor-outdoor activation and capacity for larger group events
Another noteworthy upgrade from the previous facility’s design was the inclusion
of expanded lounges for socialization and dining, featuring direct bar access and integrated shade structures throughout all outdoor spaces Aesthetically, the most noteworthy aspect of the new clubhouse is the heavy timber structure, which is left exposed to showcase eye-catching glulam
columns, beams and roof decking throughout the building
The project is being completed by Adolfson & Peterson Construction and is anticipated to open in the first quarter of 2024
Concept plans for the project can be found at www.ifoothills.org/projects/#fhgc. D

Effective Golf Training: Learning process goals, problem-solving goals, and confirmation bias
By Jonathan Hensey DIVOT Contributing Writer
Goal processes are meaningful to a golfer's progress because retention, recall, and skill attainment are affected Goals provide a framework for behavior change in physical activity, and the goal focus can be specific or vague; however, the process benefits must apply to desired outcomes (Hawkins et al , 2020) Driving range practice or technique practice at home can benefit from the learning process goal; however, the golf course demands a problem-solving goal because each shot requires specific actions
Learning is limited when the learner's actions are based on solving the problem, and this finite attention is identified as the goal specificity effect (Wirth et al , 2009) Learning process goals promote creativity and adaptability because the developed skills and decisionmaking have broader applications (Wirth et al., 2009; Hawkins et al., 2020). For example, a golfer who chooses to practice a technique on the driving range to solve a performance issue would not adapt to golf course conditions such as lie, weather, obstacles, or fatigue factors Yet, a golfer will foster creativity, imagination, and effective decision-making using a practice format focusing on developing fundamental skills followed by game simulation Therefore, the goal process needs to be applicable to cultivate growth. However, confirmation bias can render all performance development plans ineffective
Confirmation Bias Pitfalls
Consuming information based on existing views while prohibiting the change of existing beliefs defines confirmation bias, and selecting favorite information sources also reinforces bias (Allahverdyan & Galstyan, 2014). Filtering new information ranges from acceptance, non-commitment, and rejection; additionally, extreme differences are often rejected during social interactions, while similar data based on existing understanding is likely to be accepted (Allahverdyan & Galstyan, 2014) The danger of confirmation bias in physical activities is a plateau of skill development or reducing creativity, imagination, and adaptive behavior Furthermore, the performance benefits of a golfers development plan can be temporary.
Aligning Goal Processes
Golfer A believes they can hit a shot after practicing a golf drill on the driving range and has adopted a problem-solving goal However, Golfer B uses learning process goals and focuses on using alignment sticks to foster shot-specific setup elements and senses how setup influences movement Golfer A uses a drill to strike a golf ball better, while Golfer B identifies what is needed to hit specific shots Thus, Golfer A would search for the drill sensation on the golf course, while Golfer B chooses the setup to match their golf shot When confirmation bias exists, skill growth could be limited Therefore, cognitive coaching can be meaningful
Cognitive coaching benefits
A golfer's skill development requires a goal process; otherwise, the physical activity is reduced to exercise Working on your physical skills and aligning goal processes is significant because your time and efforts are maximized Goal methods exist beyond learning process goals and problem-solving goals; thus, coaching can be significant
A trained cognitive coach combines scientific evidence, personalizes your goal process, and provides a method for tracking progress. Therefore, if you desire improved performance and decision-making, book an appointment with a cognitive coach

Non-golfers still love living in golf course communities
By Doug Phelps DIVOT Contributing Writer
That’s exactly what happened to Lloyd Gottman and his wife when they decided to buy a home at Deer Creek Golf Course back in 2001. The couple were empty nesters and looking to downsize their home Located in the Meadow Ranch neighborhood of Littleton, Deer Creek Golf Course offered beautiful views, attentive staff and an extremely well maintained course Funny enough the Gottman’s are not avid golfers but fell in love with the scenic course. “It was a great opportunity looking over the fairway,” Gottman said, referring to the gorgeous green view his backyard faced The Gottman’s also looked forward to no yard work since the grounds were maintained by the course and HOA
Golf course living can be great for all walks of life including singles, emptynesters and families alike If maintained and managed well, a golf course home can bring higher than average property values. In fact, depending on the community, according to the National Recreation and Parks Association homes that have golf course views, or sit on a golf course, can have up to 15-30% higher property values compared to homes that do not There are plenty of golf courses in Colorado to pick
from with 79 golf course communities throughout Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Greeley
The Gottman’s bought their golf course home in 2001, as a new build, and the rest of the community finished construction around 2002 Upon moving in, The Gottman’s also enjoyed meeting golfers who played the course, though the golfers never interfered with privacy. The only drawback the Gottman’s had about buying a golf course home? “Watch where your home is sitting on the course, make sure it’s
Golf For Mental Health,
not a direct hit from the driving range or tee box,” Lloyd cautioned.
While the Gottman’s were happy with their home and community, Deer Creek Golf Course is rumored to have had ongoing financial problems due to various reasons, including family issues with the course owner that led to the ultimate closure Google Maps lists the course as “Temporarily Closed” but neighbors in the community don’t have high hopes that the course will open any time soon, if ever “It is now covered in weeds,” Lloyd says of the once beautiful course “I wonder what it will be like 10 or 20 years from now ”
Neighbors are in talks of maintaining the grounds themselves and possibly trying to buy the property, but to no avail Part of the course had been sold, prior to the closure, to a developer who is actively building homes as part of another community separate from the Gottman’s Time will tell what may happen, but this brings up how homeowners who are looking at golf course property can do their due diligence in order to ensure their investment Buyers and their agents need to be hyper-aware of news surrounding the golf course, zoning, maintenance and potential issues with the builder which are all reasons why golf courses close
First off, it’s pertinent to navigate potential community perils through the resources of an experienced real estate professional A great agent will know potential pitfalls of a neighborhood and will keep up with issues like rezoning, or monetary issues that the course itself or builder may be having. A knowledgeable agent is priceless
A home buyer can also do their own research when looking at homes in planned communities Doing research about financial projections and overall reputation of the course and developer could make a difference
Also, some golf courses close due to zoning issues so looking up community council minutes and doing some research is a great start Due diligence would include looking for news of funding issues or mismanagement on behalf of the builder or the course, assuming these are multiple different organizations
In the case of mismanaged golf courses, which can kill property value and send a course into closure, home buyers can again stay vigilant especially when on the property and touring A few great indications of a well managed course are manicured greens, well watered plant life and grass as well as great online reviews and attentive staff
Things are not all bad at Deer Creek Golf Course though, despite the golf course closure and growing weeds, homes are still being bought and sold in the community. While homeowners may not fetch the premium price they would if the course was open, the Gottman’s and their neighbors who have held onto their property for the last 20+ years have no doubt gained considerable equity Lloyd and his wife also have no intention of moving and he suspects many neighbors feel the same. Overall, the Denver real estate market has been hot for the past few years with a main factor being simple supply and demand: not enough homes for the market of buyers So even with the golf course closure, this once again proves that real estate usually turns out to be a good investment, especially in the long run

Schalk Successfully Defends Senior Section Title
Fort Collins, Colo - Sunny skies and hot, humid temperatures greeted players as they arrived at Fort Collins Country Club for the final round of the Colorado Senior PGA Professional Championship Players were fighting for eight qualifying spots and five alternate positions when the day began, and the leaderboard was bunched with many players vying for the chance to head to the Senior PGA Professional Championship
With a front nine of 3-over-par 38, Matt Schalk, PGA General Manager at Colorado National Golf Club, sat one shot off the lead “I was upset The golf course was perfect, the greens were perfect, and I was just not scoring well,” Schalk stated. He woke up on the first six holes of the back nine, birding five of those six to take a three-shot lead with three holes to play Schalk finished with three closing pars and a back nine 31 to finish at 69 for the day and a 5-under-par total of 137, leading to a 3-shot victory
When asked about what defending this title meant to him, he stated, “I still think the Colorado Section is one of the strongest playing sections in the country I want to make myself as known in Colorado golf as possible To win this tournament twice confirms I am a great player and puts me in the
same category as some of the greats to play in this section ”
Joining Schalk at the PGA Golf Club in October are Micah Rudosky, PGA Head Professional at Conquistador Golf Course, Chris Johnson, PGA General Manager at The Country Club at Woodmoor, Doug Rohrbaugh, PGA Instructor at River Valley Ranch, Bill Hancock, PGA Assistant Professional at Meadow Hills Golf Course, David

Dunlap Makes Histor y With Victor y at Cherr y Hills
Nick Dunlap joined exclusive company on Sunday at historic Cherry Hills Country Club, as he replicated a feat only accomplished by Tiger Woods Dunlap, the 2021 U S Junior Amateur champion, pulled away from Neal Shipley on the second 18 of the 123rd U S Amateur Championship final for a 4-and-3 victory to become just the second player to win both the Junior Amateur and the Amateur Woods captured each championship three times in a span of six consecutive years (1991-1996)
“Well, I think it’s only a third of what Tiger ’s actually done,” said Dunlap, 19, a sophomore at the University of Alabama who is No 9 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking® (WAGR®). “But just to be in the same conversation as Tiger is a dream come true and something that I’ve worked my entire life for It’s the hours and hours that nobody sees to try to get to this point and even have a chance to win this trophy It’s unbelievable; can’t put it into words ”
Shipley made an impressive birdie on the demanding par-4 18th hole to tie the match ahead of the lunch break, and after both birdied the par-4 first to open the afternoon, Dunlap assumed control of the match by winning the third and fourth holes with birdies, and the par-4 seventh with a par to take a 3-up advantage Dunlap completed a scintillating afternoon front nine of 5-under 30 by converting a 30-foot birdie putt on the ninth green that thwarted Shipley’s bid to trim his advantage, after Shipley had knocked his approach within 5 feet
for a likely birdie of his own.
“It was the putt on 9 for me, to be honest with you,” said Dunlap, when asked about a key point “I think it halted his run He was going to make that putt, and I think that turned things a little bit ”
Dunlap then took advantage of the type of break you need to win a title, when he hooked his tee shot on the par-4 10th hole but got a drop away from an obstruction
and hit his approach to within 17 feet for a birdie that gave him a 4-up edge
“I got a really good break on 10 – I honestly thought that was out of bounds,” said Dunlap “It turned out [that I got] relief and I was able to get a swing at it and give myself a look at it, and fortunately I made it ”
Even though Shipley had rallied from 3 down after 10 holes in his semifinal victory over John Marshall Butler, he now found himself 4 down to Dunlap with eight holes to play That birdie putt put Dunlap at 11 under par through the match’s first 28 holes, with 12 birdies and a lone bogey on the par-3 15th hole of the morning round
“You shoot 5 under [in the morning round] and you would think you’d be at least 1 or 2 up,” said Shipley, a graduate student at Ohio State University who played at James Madison University before joining the Ohio State program last year “Nick played great, and he just made a lot of putts on me this afternoon That’s what it takes to win these things He has what it takes, obviously, and I just didn't really play my best I got outdueled today ”
After completing his victory, Dunlap recalled Monday’s opening round of stroke play, when he stood 5 over par through seven holes at co-host Colorado Golf Club, with a double bogey and a triple bogey He birdied six of his next 10 holes to turn things around and ended up completing 36 holes in 1 under par, one
stroke inside the cut line of even par. Dunlap had missed the cut for match play in his three previous U S Amateurs, shooting a 79 at Ridgewood in 2022 to dash his hopes after losing out in a 12-for-1 playoff in 2021 at Oakmont and also missing out at Pinehurst in 2019
“I learned that I could do it; I always thought I could, but when you’re 5 over through seven and your mind is spinning and you can't see straight, you’re looking at the negative – I think I was in last place at one point,” said Dunlap “For me to be able to snap out of that, slow things down, back off, whatever it took for me to slow down and get back into my process, I think I just learned that anything is possible as long as you put your mind to it ”
What the Champion Receives
Nick Dunlap receives custody of the Havemeyer Trophy for one year, as well as a 10-year exemption into the U S Amateur, a gold medal and entry in the 2024 U S Open at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club, the 2024 Open Championship at Royal Troon and a likely invitation to the 2024 Masters Tournament Runner-up Neal Shipley receives a silver medal, a threeyear U S Amateur exemption, and he is also exempt into the 2024 U S Open and will likely receive an invitation to the 2024 Masters D
