Although Colorado has a well-deserved reputation for its superb skiing, snowboarding, hiking and biking, you do not have to be an extreme athlete to enjoy the attractions that this great state has to offer. Many people come to the state to enjoy the spectacular scenery that surrounds most of the Colorado golf clubs.
Colorado Golf Clubs in Colorado Springs
Although there are many Colorado golf courses throughout all parts of the state, visitors often find themselves enchanted by the course at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. In recent years, the Jack Nicklaus Design Company completed the redesign of the Broadmoor Mountain Course. The course is characterized by wide, forgiving fairways; large greens and beautiful vistas that transport you back in tine to the golden era of golf. This Colorado golf course is a must-see for your Colorado Springs vacation.
Denver Colorado Golf Courses
If your travels are bringing you to Denver for business or for pleasure, you will be pleased to discover the Cherry Creek Country Club. Located in close proximity to downtown Denver, this Nicklaus-designed Colorado golf club has an exclusive membership. Although it may be a bit pricey, if you can afford it, the luxurious amenities, which include a top-quality spa, may be well-worth the membership fee.
Summit County Golf
Many people enjoy the challenge of the high-altitude Summit County Colorado Golf courses. However, the best part of a Summit County Colorado golf vacation is that when you are finished golfing, you are in Summit County! In Breckenridge, Jack Nicklaus designed the 27-hole course at the Breckenridge. At an altitude of 9600ft., your drives are propelled 15 to 20% further than at lower altitudes. A Breckenridge Colorado golf vacation gives you the opportunity to explore the best of both worlds. In the daytime, you can enjoy a great game of life in a place where humidity is a foreign word. Then, in the evening enjoy the cultural attractions such as the performances at the Backstage Theatre and the National Repertory Orchestra.
In Silverthorne, The Raven Club at Three Peaks, designed by Alister Mackenzie, is located in the Gore Mountain range. The course takes you through pines, aspens and trout filled lakes. A Colorado golf vacation in Silverthorne keeps you close to the Silverthorne Outlet stores.
Keystone Colorado is not just for skiers. In the summer, many people enjoy their Colorado golf vacation at the River Course. The River Course has a variety of terrain and elevation. The front nine holes are near the Snake River. The back nine offer beautiful views of Lake Dillon, the Gore Range and Buffalo Mountain. Dr. Michael Hurdsan and Dana Fry designed this course for all playing abilities.
Wherever you decide to take your Colorado golf vacation, you will be treated to great weather, spectacular scenery and a variety of cultural attractions.
