Broadmoor Country Club Clubhouse

Clubhouse and Amenities – Rating 6.16

At Broadmoor Country Club, the club house has a decent golf shop, with a good selection of apparel and limited selection of equipment. The food and drink options offered at very good and the club house itself is top notch. Parking is excellent, the amenities are solid, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Carts are very good, but the cart paths need some attention, and they are getting the attention they need. Yardage book is available.

SUMMARY:

Broadmoor golf club is a public course, not a private club as some may think. This is not a course you would have found Jack Nicklaus, the Golden Bear, on but then again you also would not have found old time comedian Bob Hope or singer Bing Crosby out here for a game of golf either. While not a championship course, Broadmoor Country Club does provide a very nice challenge in a good golf setting. They are very consistent on the green sizes and speeds. There are not many fairway bunkers but a good amount of water hazards, mostly on the front nine. We consider the 4th hole to be its signature hole. The service when we were there was friendly and very helpful, and the cost of playing has yet to reach the highest golf course rates in our area of the United States. Broadmoor Golf Club is an overall solid value and a good solid course. See our video of Broadmoor Country Club.
