Course of the Month



golf ball East Course

The Broadmoor's East Course is known for its wide, tree-lined fairways and expansive greens. With its challenging terrain and amazing mountain vistas, the East Course is ranked among the best golf courses in the country.

East Course History

Spencer Penrose contacted legendary golf course architect Donald Ross to design an 18-hole golf course for his hotel property. When completed in 1918, the East Course was the highest golf course in the United States at 6,400 feet in elevation. The East Course is now a combination of the original Donald Ross design mixed with holes designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. in 1952.

Holes 1-6 - Donald Ross
Holes 7-15 - Robert Trent Jones, Sr.
Holes 16-18 - Donald Ross

The East Course has been home to many major tournaments, including the 1959 U.S. Amateur (which was Jack Nicklaus' first major win), the 1964 U.S. Amateur, and the 1995 U.S. Women's Open, which was Annika Sorenstam's first major title. Most recently, the East course hosted the 2008 U.S. Men's Senior Open and the 2011 U. S. Women's Open.

Broadmoor Golf Course - East Course

Get ready for rolling fairways, multi-level greens, and demanding hazards at The Broadmoor West Course. At 6,800 feet, this 18-hole course has more doglegs and steeply-angled greens than the East Course, and offers breathtaking views of both the mountains and Colorado Springs. The West Course plays tighter off the tee, with more heavily tree-lined holes than the East Course, and also gives players an array of spectacular approach shots.

West Course History

A combination of the original 1918 Donald Ross design and the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. 1964 design, the West Course offers guests a challenging course with spectacular views.

Holes 1-6 - Donald Ross
Holes 7-14 - Robert Trent Jones, Sr.
Holes 15-18 - Donald Ross

After undergoing renovations by Nicklaus Design, the Mountain Course was reopened in July 2006 and plays to a maximum of 7,700 yards, par 72. This beautifully designed course, which offers scenic views of the mountains and Colorado Springs, features wide, forgiving fairways and large greens, ideal for all skill levels and handicaps.

Mountain Course History

In 1959, Jack Nicklaus won his first national title and first major championship, the US Amateur Championship, on the links at The Broadmoor. Forty-nine years later, his company, Nicklaus Design, brings the legacy full circle, with a redesign of one of the most beloved Broadmoor golf venues, the Mountain Course. Working in collaboration with Nicklaus Design, a wonderfully scenic and playable golf course has been created that blends seamlessly with The Broadmoor's other award-winning courses.
