The Broadmoor: Golfing at Its Highest Level!

Posted: Apr. 25th, 2006  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Golf Resorts: The Broadmoor of Colorado Springs, Colorado, has been a prominent luxury resort since 1918. The highly acclaimed facility is a Five-Star, Five-Diamond inn with championship golf courses, six levels of rooms and suites and award-winning dining. Golf is the primary focus of this report, but the resort does offer a plethora of activities. Aside from Mother Nature's breathtaking mountainous landscape and vistas, there are 19 museums in the neighboring community and art workshops on the premises for drawing, photography and abstract painting. Horseback riding, tennis, exercising facilities and a full spa are available too. The list of activities in the area are so numerous that the resort's website has a special link, Around Town, to keep guests abreast.

The East course, at 6,400 feet, is among the highest elevated course in the U.S. It is known for its wide, tree-lined fairways and large greens. Golf Digest magazine issued it a "Five-Star" rating. The course was originally designed, in 1917, by Donald Ross and revamped, in 1965, by Robert Trent Jones II. The East Course hosted the 1959 U.S. Amateur, which was Jack Nicklaus' first major win, and the 1995 U.S. Women's Open, which was Annika Sorenstam's first major title.

The West course is even higher in elevation at 6,800 feet. This course, too, is a combination of designs by Donald Ross (1918) and Robert Trent Jones Sr. (1955). This course has more doglegs, steeply angled greens and very challenging bunkers. The West Course hosted the 1998 PGA Cup Matches.

The Mountain course, which is being renovated, is projected to reopen sometime in 2006. The East and West courses are part of the resort's original Ross course.

The Broadmoor is a golfer's paradise and a whole lot more, being ideal for personal or business activities. With special offers provided for all seasons, it is a year-round facilitator of fun, pleasure and relaxation for all comers!
