Broadmoor is the largest and certainly one of the finest golf experiences in Colorado. If you love great golf, ambiance, challenge, and are a student of golf architecture, the Broadmoor may be the answer to your wildest dreams.
The first of the three courses, The Broadmoor East Course opened for play in 1918. The course was designed by Donald Ross. The second course to open was The Broadmoor West Course. The West course opened its first 9 in 1950. The second 9 was completed 15 years later in 1965. Both 9s were designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. who also did some redesigning of the East Course. The team of Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay designed The Broadmoor Mountain Course. The Mountain Course opened for play in 1976.

Broadmoor East first opened for play in 1918. This championship golf course was designed by Donald Ross. At an elevation of 6,400 feet, Broadmoor East was the highest golf course in the United States when first built.
Today the course is a combination of the original Donald Ross design mixed with holes designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. in 1965.

Broadmoor East 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 more recently the 1995 U.S. Women's Open, which was Annika Sorenstam's first major title. It also served as the host course for the 2008 United States Senior Open Championship.
The East Course is known for its wide fairways and large greens. With tree-lined fairways and amazing mountain views, The Broadmoor East Course is ranked among the best in the country.
With large trees that can alter your shots, and putting greens that can be difficult to read, the best tip for this course is to remember that putts break away from the mountains.

Excellent golf course and you can't beat the scenery unless you are lucky enough to make it on to Castle Pines.
