Golf Course Outdoor Activity
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.

  • Although the course was very good, I will never play here again. Cart path only (with smart carts) on a perfectly dry course. Totally unnecessary! They are not doing thgemselves any favors by keeping the grass pristine if they are running off customers.
  • We came for a sleigh ride during the winter. The wranglers were very friendly and informative while on the ride, they provided blankets amd coco to keep us warm too. The dinner that followed was also great.
  • Went for a sleigh ride during winter. Great service. Loads of blankets and hot cocoa. Dinner had live music.
  • Great place for a sleigh ride in the winter! Recommended winter tourist attraction for people who haven't seen snow before.
  • I drove 3 hours for their sleigh rides during Christmas. Wonderful experience with professional staff on premesis!
