Prettier, easier than its famous sister course

The West provides some contrast to the East - the championship venue of The Broadmoor. Both feature the same club-killing rough and fast, hard-to-read, mountain-influenced greens. Although many holes of the two courses intertwine, the West boasts more elevation changes. Golfers climb to the top of the property at the 10th green, which provides a nice view above the city of Colorado Springs. From there, the holes fall downhill back to the five-star hotel, delivering the most playable stretch of golf at the resort. There's some beauties in there - the drop-shot par-3 11th, the par-4 13th over a pond and the reachable par-5 18th.

The routing pinches tight between the trees at times, and those elevation changes don't share many flat lies, but I can see why some higher handicaps enjoy the West more than the East.

What goes up must come down

The West Course was our arrival-day round and at first we were only going to play nine holes. I'm glad we kept going, because otherwise we would have missed the good stuff.

The West plays largely uphill thru the first 10 holes before finally turning around on the 11th and going back down for much of the rest. The views are awesome on the back nine and your scorecard will probably be prettier too.

This course isn't much easier than the East but there are a few more shorter par 4s. Even still, the soft turf and hills make it play longer than you think and the greens aren't easy either.

Still it's a very scenic Ross-Jones combo but lacks some of the pizazz of the East. We had dinner in The clubhouse Grille afterwards and it has fabulous views and a great menu.

Sacred ground

I've played Broadmoor West 20 times. Each time I like it less. Awesome scenery. Goofy Golf. Downhill lies. Rough you hate. Downhill lies. Awful rough. Can't find the ball. Downhill Lies.

West Course

The West course at the Broadmoor resort is a great test. Good elevation changes, very challenging, and great with the altitude advantage. The greens were near perfect. Rolled smoothly and true. A truly good test from all tees. I enjoyed it over the more publicized East course. Of the two, the West is the better round of golf to be played.

A classic masterpiece at a legendary resort

The "West Course" sits at a higher elevation than the "East Course", plays tighter off the tee and has more tree-lined holes and more doglegs. It plays a little easier than the "big brother" but it is a fine course in his own right. If you stay at The Broadmoor, be sure to play all three courses.
