Eisenhower Golf Course is a Military, 36 hole golf facility located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The facility has two, 18-hole golf courses. They are The Blue Course and The Silver Course.
One of the most popular sites at the Academy is the golf club. A modern scenic facility with two 18-hole courses: the championship Blue, and the stunning Silver. Named the top golf course in the Department of Defense by Travel and Leisure Golf magazine, and a member of USA Today's Top 100 courses in the nation, Eisenhower Golf Club is a great value.
The Blue's layout was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and measures more than 7,300 yards from the championship tees, 6,516 from the regular tees and 5,559 from the forward tees. The Course first opened for play in 1959.
The Silver Course is a demanding golf course with a premium placed on accuracy rather than length. The course measures 6,519 yards from the championship tees and 5,215 from the forward tees.
In addition to open play, a full tournament schedule is slated for the spring, summer and fall months. Reservations for tee times are recommended, especially during the busy summer season.
Eisenhower is also the home course for the Air Force Academy's perennial league champion intercollegiate golf team.
The clubhouse features Ike's Grill, which serves up excellent breakfast and lunch fare, the Eisenhower Room, the Pro Shop and locker rooms. Golf clubs, power and hand carts are available to rent from the Pro Shop.

Always a delight to play either course at the AF Academy. Similar private clubs would cost over $100 to play. Wildlife abound and views are pretty impressive. Some hellacious greens, so stay below the hole.

Designed by Robert Trent Jones, very challenging greens and great layout, no two holes look the same. Amazing wildlife throughout the course, no houses or traffic to be seen, what more could you ask for. Ranked as the #1 course in the Department of Defense, it's kept in pro quality and hosts the Colorado PGA Professionals tournament, as well as USGA and college tournaments.

This is my favorite course in Colorado Springs, over Broadmoor East! Any first time visitors will leave cursing the greens, as they are as tough as they come! Keep the mountains in sight at all times(they dictate the break and speed)and you will love it like I do.

The greens make the course less fun to play than it should be. All my playing partners agree - greens are too severe and penalize even good golfers. Additional Putts typically add 6 strokes to a round.
