The Breckenridge Golf Course is situated in the breathtaking, glacier-sculpted Upper Blue Mountain Valley. The only town in the world to maintain a Jack Nicklaus-designed 27-hole golf course, the clubhouse sits at an elevation of 9,324 feet. Visiting golfers get an immediate confidence boost as the golf ball flies farther and straighter than at lower elevations due to less air resistance.
In the 2001 golf season, the town opened the last nine holes of the 27, also designed by Nicklaus and every bit as challenging as the original 18-holes. The Elk Course offers nine holes with more elevation change than the original nine-hole Bear Course and Beaver Course.
The Breckenridge golf course has four sets of tees so that each golfer may select the challenge equal to their game. From the most advanced Nicklaus Tees on the Elk/Beaver rotation, the course plays 7,145 yards and has a course rating of 73.5 with a slope rating of 151. This set of tees has the second most difficult course rating in the state of Colorado - a challenge for even the best golfer. Each set of tees throughout the Breckenridge Golf Course plays to a par 72.
The Breckenridge Golf Course has received regional and national honors since opening in 1985. Honors have included: Best Mountain Course and Toughest Moun
tain Course by Colorado Golfer; Golf Digest’s "Places to Play" rated Breckenridge as a 4 -Star Award Winner, as one of their top "Upscale Places To Play" in the nation. The course is also Zagat rated.
