Cool, that was fun listening to Alex, a fellow Coloradian!

He is one lucky guy to be able to golf Castle Pines – the pro course! Best course in Colorado IMO is Arrowhead, but it’s pricey. I also like Fossil Trace in Golden.

Too bad I will never be able to work for him since they are all Mac guys ;)
