Golf

The annual SSWA Herman Miron Good Guy Golf Tournament will be hosted at the Broadmoor on the East Course which is known for its wide, tree-lined fairways and expansive greens. With its challenging terrain and amazing mountain vistas, The East Course is ranked among the best golf courses in the country. Since the large trees can alter your shots and the putting greens difficult to read, the best tip we can offer for those taking on this open course is to remember that putts break away from the mountains.

In 2025, The Broadmoor is proud to host the U.S. Senior Open once more.
