BROADLANDS GOLF COURSE (303-466-8285)
Colorado Golf Course Review
The Broadlands Golf Course is Broomfield just north of Denver, is a Dick Phelps championship design that has been rated 3-1/2 stars by Golf Digest Places to Play. Opened for
public play in 1999, this championship layout winds through a residential community.
With rates including cart topping out in the $57 range in 2008, this is one of the region's better golf values.
Golfers will encounter large, mildly undulating greens that present open fronts, with bunkers often guarding the sides. There is usually plenty of recovery room greenside, and with
the wide, mildly rolling fairways - this is a player friendly experience for all levels of golfers. Plentiful natural areas and water features provide habitats for an abundance of native
wildlife as well.
There are 4 sets of tee areas with distances and slopes that measure 7289 yards/132 slope, 6691 yards/124 slope, 6034 yards/117 slope for men and 134 for women, and 5348
yards with a slope of 126 for ladies hitting from the front tees. Those playing from the tips will be challenged to drive the ball with length and accuracy, but the alternate sets should
afford players with the opportunity to play to their handicap.
Water hazards play a role in the design with the strategy on 11 holes affected by ponds or lakes that are situated mostly on the perimeters. 63 soft sand bunkers are scattered
about the course, along the landing zones or as part of the green complexes. Tall native grass frame many of the fairways, but seldom come into play as they are there more for
the aesthetic beauty.
On property is a clubhouse with pro shop plus restaurant/lounge serving breakfast and lunch items. The practice facilities are comprehensive and include a grass range, short
game area with sand bunker plus putting green. All carts feature ProLink GPS systems. On course sprinkler heads and yardage blocks at 100, 150 and 200 yards provide
measurements to the center of the green. 150 yard stakes are also present on all par fours and fives. Pin placements rotate on a front, middle and back basis.
