Breckenridge Golf Club, Breckenridge
(4.1/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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 rating is strictly for the restaurant. I staff is incredibly rude. Server we had was some punk kid trying to be a tough guy. Attitude in everything he said. Just because you are closing down for the season, does not give you the right to be a jerk. I do not remember his name but even the food wasn't good which is a bummer. Views are amazing though so might go there for round of golf.
  • Driving range was a mess. Wet spots on several fairways made it very muddy. First assistant was rude and very customer unfriendly.
  • Best view I have ever had on a golf course. Staff was very friendly and inviting, everyone seemed to ensure that we knew exactly where to go.
  • Beautiful views. Course was in great shape.
  • The course was great however the staff is very poor I wasn't even recognized at the clubhouse for drinks so I left the drink cart meet us on the first hole said they would bring my partner coffee never showed until the ninth hole but made up by not charging us and they directions for the next hole is not clear at all
