As a golf and travel writer I have been fortunate to have visited many of the finest golf resorts. Without a doubt the Broadmoor is one of my all time favorites. The famous East Course has held many national championships and will add to that list next year as host of the U.S. Senior Men's Open. The East course features some of the most devilish green to read I have ever encountered. Putts going away from the nearby mountains do so at lightning speed while putting back toward the mountain has just the opposite effect. With ample rains the course was in absolutely perfect condition. Even with record heat for early September, I walked with a caddie and had a truly memorable day on a beautiful iconic course.
Two days earlier I played the West course. Although it has not hosted national events as has the East, the West some argue is even more difficult. It is tighter off the tee, has far more elevation changes and more testing doglegs than its more famous counterpart. I recommend playing them both. Be sure to arrive early and soak up the ambience, use the wonderful driving range and most importantly visit the practice putting green!
And when you're done do a bit of shopping in the beautiful Pro Shop followed by a cold beverage of your choice as you sit and watch others finish play on the 18th green of the East course. Simply put, there is no way better way to spend a day!!
