The Broadmoor Resort (East course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1918

The Broadmoor Resort (East course): The Broadmoor Resort is located a few miles outside the city of Colorado Springs on the edge of Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Here you'll find two excellent 18-hole championship golf layouts: the much revered East course, and the also Donald Ross inspired and pleasantly testing West course. The Broadmoor's relatively newer Mountain course (located two miles from the main resort centre) closed in 2015 due to a land slippage; as of 2020 it is still closed.

The tree-lined and open parkland East course contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. The layout is known for its wide, tree-lined fairways, expansive greens, challenging terrain and wonderful mountain vistas. While enjoying the mountain scenery, don't forget that putts break away from the mountains. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game.

Stay&Play at The Broadmoor: luxury onsite accommodation available (see Where2Stay section below).

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
