Patty Jewett golf course has been open for play continuously since 1898, making it one of the oldest courses in the United States; the third oldest public golf course west of the Mississippi to be exact. The entrance sets the elegant mood, complete with a wonderful wrought-iron gate and a drive down a narrow road lined with a canopy of 100-year old trees. Patty Jewett’s is a 27-hole course (18 is par 72, with a seperate 9 hole course) each with amazing views of Pikes Peak.
Before heading out to the links, warm up at Patty’s driving range and putting green. If you are feeling particularly rusty, Patty Jewett offers group and indiviudal lesson programs for adults and children. For those who do not wish to walk the entire course, cart rentals are available, and for those new to the sport or flying in, the club also rents golf clubs. They might even be better than what you are lugging around!
After your round of play, cool down with a refreshing drink at the club’s patio with expansive views of Pikes Peak, or grab some grub from the grill. The full-service clubhouse has a banquet facility with top-notch service for those special events or corporate gatherings. The clubhouse is known to attract those who simply want a good meal (breakfast is one of them) in a great setting. Come by and grab a bite even if golf is not your favorite past time.
