This month, we are featuring the much-anticipated opening of TPC Colorado at Heron Lakes. This PGA TOUR golf course is going to put Berthoud on the map as a dream destination for golfers and gawkers alike. The landscape is amazing, and the amenities are sure to please golfers, tourists and residents. The day that we took photos for this series, Golf Digest was there, getting shots for its national magazine.

We are highlighting many of the builders who were fortunate enough to be selected as elite builders in this booming community. Their custom home offerings are sure to please even the finickiest of buyers. You can read about the community and the builders starting on page 20. NOCO Style is sponsoring the 64th Annual Berthoud Day June 2 at Town Park. Come out to enjoy the parade starting at 11 a.m., with games, food and entertainment through the evening.

We are also featuring our Father’s Day Gift Guide to give you ideas for the special man in your life on page 56. If you take a drive with the family on Father’s Day, consider traveling the iconic Trail Ridge Road. Beginning on page 50, you can read about the drive and what Estes Park and Grand Lake offer along the way. Wouldn’t any dad like to retreat to a modern day “Man Cave?” We have some ideas for him depending on his hobbies and interests. Read the article on page 68. And, who doesn’t like the 3 B’s – burgers, bacon and beer!  We have a great recipe on page 76.

We have a host of events splashed through the pages of this month’s Calendar beginning on page 82. We have a lot more events that we don’t have room for in print on our website,

www.nocostyle.com/calendar. Take pictures when you’re out and about and use hashtag #nocostylemagazine for your chance to grace the pages of our monthly About Town.

I love eating food that looks pretty! And, I’m guilty of taking photos of my food and splashing them around social media. So, this month’s featured contest is all about plate presentation. Take a picture while you’re enjoying a home-cooked meal, or out on the town indulging in your favorite cuisine. Tag @nocostylemagazine and use hashtag #nocofoodies so that on June 15, readers can go to www.nocostyle.com/contests to vote for their favorite. Savory Spice will donate a barbecue spice set and steak lovers spice kit to the winner.

We’d like to congratulate Robynn Griffis as the winner of our April throwback prom picture contest. She won a HydraFacial from Harmony Skin & Wellness Clinic. Robynn looked spectacular in her flowing orange dress kissing her beau under the umbrella. We’ll announce the winner of the May cutest baby contest, sponsored by Sather’s Leading Jewelers, on our website this month.

We hope that you enjoy this issue and wish you a wonderful, eventful summer.

Happy reading,
