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

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
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!
