Colorado Golf Resorts
Colorado is one of North America's great summer golf destinations. The ball flies forever at altitudes of a mile high or higher. On the Front Range, Colorado Springs, located 75 minutes south of Denver, is home to a small collection of luxury golf and wellness resorts. The state's most historic golf resort is the five-star Broadmoor Resort, which was laid out over 100 years ago and features 36 holes of USGA-caliber mountain golf designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Donald Ross.
Head over the Continental Divide and many of the ski towns at the base of the Rockies double as summer golf destinations. Resorts such as Keystone, Telluride, Copper Mountain, Steamboat Springs and Beaver Creek feature multiple lodging options as well as adjacent golf to play. The golf season for these mountain towns can be tantalizingly short given their high altitudes and generally only from July -September. Courses east of the Rockies however have longer golf seasons. Denver is the largest and capital city in Colorado and while most resorts are to the west or south, there are a few options nearby, most notably the Omni Interlocken Hotel, home to a 27-hole golf course in between Denver and Boulder on the Front Range.
