Pebble Beach Resort offers a variety of accommodations, including the elegant and contemporary Inn at Spanish Bay as well as private residences. For a more traditional experience, we recommend the stately Lodge at Pebble Beach, a renowned and luxe property that curves around the site of the 18th green of the Pebble Beach Golf Links. The Lodge offers a grand and elegant experience in addition to a variety of dining options—from casual to formal. Accommodations include 155 luxury guest rooms, five spa rooms and one spa suite. 

Guests will be pleased that they may purchase cigars in the Golf Pro Shop as well as in The Tap Room (located in The Lodge). The latter offers a Humidor featuring approximately 25 varieties of cigars. While enjoying a puff at one of the tables located on The Terrace Lounge (adjacent to The Stillwater Bar & Grill at The Lodge), guests will be enchanted with views of the rocky cliffs and shimmering waters of Stillwater Cove. Service attendants are onsite to fulfill orders for beverages and light hors d’oeuvres.

The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs, Colorado

The Broadmoor’s golf experience holds an impressive history and legacy. Since play first began on an original nine-hole course in 1918, several of the world’s most prestigious designers have developed three main courses adjacent to this magnificent resort. The acclaimed designer Donald Ross designed the first 18-hole course, which opened for play in 1918 and is known as the East Course. Then, in 1948, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. expanded upon the property’s original nine-hole course to develop the West Course.


Players of all levels will enjoy the East Course, site of several world-renowned championships. They will also soak-up the sweeping mountain views under Colorado’s vast blue skies while enjoying the course’s strategic layout, which includes generous teeing areas. The Broadmoor’s West Course spreads out at the base of Cheyenne Mountain and lays at an elevation of 6,200 to 6,600 feet. Offering a more challenging experience, this course includes sharp doglegs, a fast green and a signature 11th hole, 229-yard, par 3, where the difference in elevation is approximately 60 feet between the tee and the green. The East Course brings an authentic and scenic Colorado experience as it’s artfully lined with Ponderosa Pine, Scrub Oak in addition to fields of wildflowers.

The Broadmoor’s Mountain Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, expertly incorporates the natural terrain while also leveraging the surrounding views. In fact, this course offers some of the most memorable and awe-inspiring views of any of the Broadmoor courses. Yet, like the other courses, and due to the elevation, players with enjoy the sloping greens and strategic layout. In true Nicklaus tradition, this course features wide fairways that give way to “accessible yet short-demanding pin positions.”

The Five-Star Broadmoor Hotel offers 744 guest rooms and suites, all plushly appointed and featuring spacious, elegant bathrooms. Most rooms offer stunning mountain views and/or vistas of nearby Cheyenne Lake. Guests may also choose a more private experience in one of The Broadmoor’s Cottages, which are positioned as separate buildings (offering two to eight bedrooms) from the main hotel and are situated along the East Course’s 18th fairway.
