When you start searching Colorado maps and resources the first thing you notice are the great number of golf courses in the state of Colorado.

In the mountains Mike Green T-Shirts , the Aspen area is sparse in the number of golf courses compared to the Vail area, This might have something to do with former President Gerald Ford giving attention to Vail over Aspen. As you might remember, former President Ford was a big golf fan and player. Although not a tournament-class player, he had fun playing as long as you weren't in his line of fire with a stray golf ball. For the younger people... Gerald Ford had a bad habit of hitting bystanders.

What about the Denver area? Wow, a whopping number of golf courses are listed, over 40 featured ones alone. It makes you wonder if there's any room for a city.
Colorado Springs is no slouch. there are about 40 golf courses around that area too and the weather tends to be nicer due to a little thing called the Palmer Divide near Monument. The divide is about 3,000 feet above Denver and 2,000 feet or so above Colorado Springs. Storms coming from the north tend to stall on Palmer Divide and so your golf outing is less likely to be interrupted. Storms from the west are different. Better get off the golf course before lightning decides you're its next target.

The Fort Collins area shows about 30 golf courses and the Pueblo area about 10. Pueblo isn't as big into golf as its northern neighbors. Possibly because of its working class roots as a steel town and the surrounding agricultural areas. For some reason, steel workers and farmers usually find better things to be doing than golfing.

The Grand Junction area has about twice as many golf courses than the Pueblo area. Do you suppose tending orchards in Grand Junction (peaches, cherries, apples) gives them the desire to play golf more?

The Grand Lake area is also thin with golf courses. But what golf courses there are there have to be good. Just being in the area is fantastic...what with the huge (by Colorado standards - this isn't Minnesota) Grand Lake and gorgeous Rocky Mountain National Park nearby.If you want to get away from the maddening crowds and experience the Rocky Mountains at its best, check out the Telluride area. Gasps of awe are guaranteed in this part of the Rocky Mountains.

A word of warning though. If you're from a lower elevation state I'd suggest using an electric cart. Playing golf five to nine thousand feet higher than you're used to, can make 18 holes feel like a 30 mile marathon. There is a good thing though. Your golf ball will travel farther than you've ever hit before thanks to that thin air.

That being said, whenever you golf in Colorado, you're bound to have a good time. The weather is great (over 300 sunny days per year) with a gorgeous scenery that can't be beat anywhere else in the world.

The dojo or training hall is the place where judo is practiced and where the judo player is introduced to the sport and taught mat etiquette and safety procedures. The tatami or mat is a vital piece of equipment because of the very nature of the sport. Ideally the mat should be on a sprung surface, as this considerably reduces the kinetic energy created by the impact of falling.

Judo is a combat sport involving close bodily contact so discipline and hygiene are important considerations. The judogi should be washed after every training session, the finger nails and toe nails should be clipped regularly and kept short to prevent the risk of injury and feet should be kept clean and, if necessary, washed before practice. A pair of zori, or slippers, or flip flops should be worn when walking from the changing rooms to the dojo to avoid transferring dirt and germs to the mat. If hair is long it should be tied back and female competitors must wear a T shirt under the judogi. All jewellery, chains, rings and such like must be removed before practising.

In randori the prohibited actions should be clearly understood. Kicking, punching, hair pulling, biting or indeed any action likely to cause injury to an opponent are all unacceptable on a judo mat. Foul language and displays of bad temper are also unacceptable. Judo has an excellent reputation for sportsmanship and continues to fulfil Kano s ideal of mutual respect and mutual benefit in a competitive framework.The motto of Gunji Koizumi, who founded the Budokwai in 1918, was In skill opposed, in spirit united , which expresses the ideal rather succinctly. Practice fighting should never become personal. There is nothing wrong with fighting spirit and aggression in a judo context, but it must be tempered with control and care for training partners. Of course, sometimes accidents happen or less skilful players prove to be clumsy, heads clash, shins are kicked when a foot sweep is mistimed, but such mishaps ought never to become an excuse for bullying. Anger has to be controlled. The hot headed individual is his own worst enemy and can generally be easily provoked by a cunning opponent into making the kind of mistakes that can lose a contest.

The sensei, judo teacher or instructor, has the job of making sure these things are communicated to and understood by all beginners and new members of a judo club. Higher grades should guide and look after lower grades and all grades should behave in a mutually respectful way. Where beginners are concerned it is helpful for the sensei or instructor to have a few experienced players on the mat to help disseminate the information and teach these principles by example.
