Why does the golf ball significantly travel further in Colorado vs Seattle? ?

Higher elevation and/or less moisture in the air, less air resistance. Colorado is both higher and drier than Seattle.

Altitude. There's less drag at altitude because the air density is less.

Altitude increases the distance that a ball will travel due to the air being lighter and not having as much oxygen. So Colorado and other high altitude venues will see the all travel further.

Thinner air offers less resistance.
