The Broadmoor is located on the southwest side of The Springs at the base of Cheyenne Mountain with three 18 hole, championship layouts available to guests of the resort.

The West Course is in a scenic setting with 360 degree views of the Rockies. It journeys over rolling, tree lined fairways with numerous slight and dramatic doglegs leading to slippery, undulating greens. It is a combination of nine holes of the original 1918 Donald Ross design and the 1955 Robert Trent Jones Sr. design, with each of the remaining 9s making up the East Course. There's four sets of tees from 5,162 yards to 7,101 yards from the tips, the white tees, 6,175 yards, 68.6/123, course/slope ratings.

The East Course is at a higher altitude than the West and more scenic overall with mountain and city views. The layout is somewhat constricted by the tree lined fairways off the tee as well as cavernous sand bunkers along the fairways and greens with several water hazards in play. The East course is 7,355 from the tips with three shorter tees to 5,738 yards at the front tees, the white tees are 6,651 yards, 70.5/122, course/slope ratings.

The Mountain is more challenging than the East and West over significant elevation change along the sloping fairways with forced carries over ravines and creeks. There's scenic views throughout along the rolling terrain with mature trees lining the fairways leading to devilish, tiered, greens made more maddening by the confounding breaks the mountain range provides. There's four sets of tees from 4,928 yards to 7,637 yards from the tips, the forward tees are 6,325 yards, 69.5/134, course/slope ratings. The course originally was designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, but was re-designed by Jack Nicklaus in 2006, and somewhat fitting in that Nicklaus won the US Amateur in 1959 at Broadmoor East.
