Colorado Avid Golfer Magazine:
Original Sims
August 2014

There must be something in the water in Windsor—and as anyone who’s played Pelican Lakes Golf & Country Club knows, there is no shortage of the wet stuff in the community known as Water Valley.

Shortly after announcing Fred Funk would be designing his first course, RainDance, for Water Valley CEO Martin Lind (July 2014 issue), Pelican Lakes installed three state-of-the-art golf simulators inside its new sports grill, The Sand Bar. Members can now play rounds at 80 different courses. “There is nothing like this bar anywhere else in the state, or perhaps the nation,” says Lind. “People will be able to play Pebble Beach when it’s snowing outside, and that’s an amenity you can’t find anywhere else.”

The Sand Bar has named two of the simulators after Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. Those stand next to one another, while the Fred Funk machine occupies its own intimate room for private parties. In addition, The Sand Bar boasts 19 TVs, custom tables and booths and eight beers on tap, including the club’s very own beer, Pelican Lakes Lager. It pairs well with small pizzas and panini—fare you won’t find at the more upscale Pelican Lakes Restaurant upstairs. Nor will you find Sand Bar drink concoctions such as the Ty Webb and Tin Cup.
