Breckenridge Golf Club

Located in the heart of Summit County, Breckenridge Golf Club is a must-visit for any golfer. The club boasts three championship nines – the Bear, the Beaver, and the Elk – all designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus.

The Bear nine was the first to open in 1985, built on what was once a tent city for miners seeking their fortunes in gold. Today, the course offers a challenging round of golf with players seeking birdies instead of nuggets. The Beaver nine followed in 1987, named for the beaver ponds scattered along holes 6, 8, and 9. Observant golfers may also notice rock piles or “tailings” left over from the area’s mining days.

In 2001, the club expanded with the addition of the Elk nine, offering the most elevation change of the three courses and stunning panoramic views of the Ten-Mile mountain range.

Playing at an elevation of over 9,300 feet, each nine offers a true mountain golf experience. Golfers can enjoy breathtaking views of the snowcapped Colorado Rockies from every hole, as the course winds through dense wooded areas, open native grasslands, and wetland areas. Keep an eye out for local wildlife during your round – you might spot beaver, deer, elk, moose, or even a bear!
