The Broadmoor Golf Club is a golf resort located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, consisting of three 18-hole courses; East, West, and Mountain. The East Course, a Donald Ross design opened in 1918, has hosted several USGA championships since 1959, most recently the 2011 U.S. Women's Open, won by So Yeon Ryu.[1]

In 1995, the East Course was the site of the U.S. Women's Open, the first major won by Annika Sörenstam.

The West Course opened in 1965, designed by Robert Trent Jones. It includes several holes from the original course, and the East Course has several holes that opened for play in 1965. The Mountain Course opened in 2006, and was designed by Jack Nicklaus, who won his first major tournament, the 1959 U.S. Amateur, at the East Course at the age of 19.

The resort's landmark hotel sits at an elevation of 6230 feet (1900 m) above sea level, with the golf courses climbing slightly higher.[2]
