Detailed description

Breckenridge Golf Club, is a Public, 27 hole golf course located in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Breckenridge Golf Club is a city owned Jack Nicklaus designed, 27-hole golf facility. The course first opened for play in 1985. In 2001 a third nine holes also designed by Nicklaus was added.

Breckenridge has three championship nines, the BEAR the BEAVER and the ELK. All three nines are Jack Nicklaus signature courses. Playing at 9300 feet in elevation, each nine offers a mountain golf experience. Panoramic views of the snowcapped Colorado Rockies can be seen on every hole. Dense wooded areas give way to open native grassland and wetland areas. It is not uncommon to spot wildlife during your round. Seeing the beaver, deer and elk, an occasional moose and bear, abundant red fox and red tail hawks, you realize golf at Breckenridge is more than just golf.

The Elk nine as it is named, offers more elevation change than the Bear and Beaver nines.

The golf course complex is situated in a beautiful mountain valley. The clubhouse sits at an elevation of 9,324 feet. At this elevation the golf ball flies farther and straighter than at lower elevations, as there is less air resistance. The air not only allows you to hit the ball farther, but also offers temperatures that make you forget about the heat of the summer. Typical daytime summer temperatures range from 65 degrees to 80 degrees. Quite rarely will the temperature exceed 80.

The course has four sets of tees so that each golfer may select the challenge equal to their game. From the 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. A challenge for even the best golfer. Each set of tees plays to a par 72.
