The Broadmoor Golf Club is home to some of the most celebrated golf courses in the United States. Designed by legends including Donald Ross and Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the award-winning courses have hosted countless tournaments and challenged and delighted players of all skill levels.
The Broadmoor’s East Course is known for its wide, tree-lined fairways and expansive greens. With its challenging terrain and amazing mountain vistas, The East Course is ranked among the best golf courses in the country. Since the large trees can alter your shots and the putting greens difficult to read, the best tip we can offer for those taking on this open course is to remember that putts break away from the mountains.
The East Course architects were Donald Ross, designing holes 1-6 and 16-18 and Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designing holes 7-15.
The East Course has been home to many major tournaments, including the 1959 U.S. Amateur (which was Jack Nicklaus’ first major win), the 1967 U.S. Amateur, and the 1995 U.S. Women’s Open, which was Annika Sorenstam’s first major title. Most recently, the famous course served as the host to the 2008 U.S. Senior Open, 2011 U. S. Women’s Open Championship and the 2018 U.S. Senior Open. In 2025, The Broadmoor is proud to host the U.S. Senior Open once more.
Get ready for rolling fairways, multi-level greens, and demanding hazards at the stunning yet formidable West Course. At 6,800 feet, this 18-hole course has more doglegs and steeply-angled greens than the East Course and offers breathtaking views of both the mountains and Colorado Springs.
The West Course plays tighter off the tee, with more heavily tree-lined holes than the East Course, and also gives players an array of spectacular approach shots. Don’t let the stunning mountain views distract you; the West Course may look like a postcard, but it offers a very challenging and rewarding round of golf. The West Course was also the host site of the 1998 PGA Cup Matches.
A combination of the original 1918 Donald Ross design and the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. 1964 design, the West Course offers guests a challenging course with spectacular views. The West Course architects were Donald Ross, designing holes 1-6 and 15-18 and Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designing holes 7-14.
