ROAD TRIP: Southwest and Conquer…
Breakaway—the time has come for you (continued). Perhaps easing into your getaway isn’t your thing—when it’s time to go, it’s time to go! Perhaps the spirit will move you to take a longer journey; in that case, one possibility would be an escape to the Four Corners, that almost mystical region of the country where Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico meet. On your way, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t get a round of golf in—one very appealing option is Conquistador Golf Course in Cortez. A 7,152-yard Press Maxwell/Bill Stroud design, the greens are small, but the vistas are expansive, with views of the La Plata Mountains, Mesa Verde and the Ute Mountain. It’s all so captivating, you’ll be tempted to not come back to reality, but rather, simply stay in Cortez. fourcornersgolf.com
