#3 of 72 in Golf in Colorado
The Town of Breckenridge can boast that it is the only municipality in the world to own a Jack Nicklaus designed, 27-hole golf course. The course opened for play in 1985. During the summer 2001 golf season, the Town opened another nine holes also designed by Nicklaus and every bit as challenging as the original 18-holes. The new Elk nine as it is named, offers more elevation change than the Bear and Beaver nines.

Since the opening of the course, national and regional honors have been bestowed on Breckenridge. Honors awarded by the Colorado Golfer (the State Golf Newspaper) have included; Best Mountain Course, and Toughest Mountain Course. Golf Digest "Places to Play" rates Breckenridge as a 4 1/2 Star Facility, and as one of their top "Upscale Places To Play" in the nation. In May 2011, Golfweek rated Breckenridge as one of the "Top 50 Municipal Courses" in the nation. The course is also Zagat rated.

The golf course is situated in a beautiful mountain valley. The clubhouse sits at an elevation of 9,324 feet. At this elevation the golf ball flies farther and straighter than at lower elevations, as there is less air resistance. The air not only allows you to hit the ball farther, but also offers temperatures that make you forget about the heat of the summer. Typical daytime summer temperatures range from 65 degrees to 80 degrees. Quite rarely will the temperature exceed 80.

The course has five sets of tees so that each golfer may select the challenge equal to their game. From the Nicklaus Tees on the Beaver/Bear rotation, the course plays 7,266 yards and has a course rating of 73.9 with a slope rating of 147. A challenge for even the best golfer. Each set of tees plays to a par 72.

  • This was our first time playing here and was well worth it. Surrounded by beautiful mountains and holes that each had a personality and unique challenge. The course is not very forgiving of a solid hook or slice but the greens are well kept and beautiful to play. The carts are equipped with GPS and information about the course. Plenty of rest stops, water and refreshment cart opportunities. Driving range is from grass which another plus. Oh and the lack of air really makes those ball fly far.
  • This is a stunning part of the world with fantastic views and a truly great golf course set in the middle. 3 nine hole courses all a tough test but very enjoyable. Great greens. Take your time and enjoy this fantastic golf course.
  • Great course. Very challenging Jack Nicholas design. Well maintained. Playing here all the time will make you a better golfer!
  • Recently remodeled. The outdoor deck has fabulous views. The menu is not huge but has lots of variety. I had pulled pork sandwiches. Fish tacos also looked good.
  • Nice course, 27 holes, required to ride even for 9 holes game. On the pricier side - $69 for nine holes. The 4 day tee time booking rule is a bit annoying.
