> Best Denver Region Private Club (Reader’s Choice), Glenmoor Country Club

Call it a coup, but the “other” Cherry Hills Village club surged to the top of the leaderboard in this and “Best Overall Experience” categories. Long known for its familyfriendliness, the expert golf instruction of Steve Beach and gourmet fare of Penelope Wong, the 30-year-old club also boasts a resort-like swimming area (complete with cocktail cabana), massage services and a 45,000-square-foot clubhouse. The tight, water-lined Pete Dye layout takes no prisoners, and members insist it makes them better players. Small wonder that, even with a $75,000 initiation, the club has a waiting list to join. glenmoorcc.org
