I have some fond memories of the Wellshire Inn. Decades ago, the Tudor building on the city-owned Wellshire Golf Course hosted a wild party for a local gal who'd just become a Playboy Playmate of the month. And then there was my lunch with then-Congressman Tom Tancredo and talk-show host Peter Boyles (the three of us once shared the Channel 12 roundtable). On my way out, former Senate president John Andrews, who'd been sitting nearby, told me he enjoyed reading Savage Love?!
But as of December 29, the Wellshire Inn is no longer a restaurant..for now. While it will be available for private events, those will have to be booked around a major remodel.

In the meantime, the Golfer's Pub next to the pro shop will remain open whenever the course is. To find out, call 303-757-2397. -- Patricia Calhoun
