“Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots – but you have to play the ball where it lies.”
– Bobby Jones
There are many reasons why we play the beautiful game of golf: stress relief, the mental game, character building, socializing, or maybe it’s the connection between the game and everyday life that golf legend Bobby Jones highlighted so long ago. Whatever keeps you coming back, you can be sure to find it on the golf courses of Breckenridge and the surrounding county. As the snow melts, the spring sun shines through and golf season in Breckenridge ramps up in a big way. The golf courses in and around Breckenridge offer unparalleled natural beauty and a challenge for golfers of all skill levels. You can read more about the area courses below; however, the best way to discover golf in the high country is to book a tee time and experience it for yourself.
