The hail came in a big way this week about the Denver area.

Photos emerged Wednesday depicting damaging winds and large hail all over the Denver area this week — complete with golf ball-sized chunks of hail pelting golf course fairways.

Staff in the Aurora Golf Club worked tirelessly for the cleaning of the hail mess. In some cases it was difficult to distinguish between the golf balls and hail stones in the area of courses.

Beautiful photos of hail yesterday in the Saddle Rock. Thanks to Zane and the Grant for sending them. The staff worked hard to fix the damage quickly. Great job team!
